So Let me get this straight….it’s OBAMA who wants to take money from the rich?? Really, John??? You must’ve forgotten what you said……

John McCain's Top 10 Class-Warfare Arguments Against Tax Cuts
by Human Events
01/16/2008


1. “I don’t think the governor’s tax cut is too big—it’s just misplaced. Sixty percent of the benefits from his tax cuts go to the wealthiest 10% of Americans—and that’s not the kind of tax relief that Americans need. … Gov. Bush wants to spend the entire surplus on tax cuts. I don’t believe the wealthiest 10% of Americans should get 60% of the tax breaks. I think the lowest 10% should get the breaks. …
“I’m not giving tax cuts for the rich.”

It's called mudslinging. One candidate says one thing about another without taking to consideration about what they said. I think John McCain is fairly liberal but he had to change his policies because he's running for the Republican party. If John McCain wanted to really make a dent in Obama's lead and support his claim he could have ran for Democrat instead of Republican because that party would want these policies.

Yeah....I TOTALLY agree.....but now he's sold out to the Republicans, and to big business.


Why doesn't anyone call him out on these quotes?"?? Why doesn't anyone ask him if he still believes these things, or was he lying then, or is he lying now, or has he changed his mind (personally, I think he is just playing fear mongering to his base.....telling everyone that Barack Obama wants to take thier money, and they are the ones WITH money, so he is hoping to get elected.

I'll never understad why he didn't run for VP WITH Obama. Instead, he sold out.

Senator McCain might have Moderated his views some in order to re-align himself with the Republican base, but what is wrong with changing your mind eight years later? Everyone is allowed to change their mind, even Senator Obama, it only becomes an issue however if such "changes" occur at some alarmingly frequent rate.

Changed his mind a little????? Are you friggin KIDDING me????? He went from "I don’t believe the wealthiest 10% of Americans should get 60% of the tax breaks. I think the lowest 10% should get the breaks. …" to....."Senator Obama wants to take money from the wealthy and redistribute it to the poor".


fact is that we have ALWAYS had a progressive tax system in this country, since the inception of the current tax system, it has NEVER changed.

McCain didn't change his mind a little, he is pandering the those with money.....the "Base" of the Republican party.

Despite whatever McCain's real views might be, the statement



"Senator Obama wants to take money from the wealthy and redistribute it to the poor".


is still true. He has been saying it all along.

That said, I agree



Personally, I think they all want to take as much money and power from the rest of us!!!

They already have taken it. 850,000,000,000 dollars and they're not stopping there. McCain & Obama's policies will take more from us. It makes me wonder if this Fannie Mae & Freddy Mac deal was set to hurt us in the first place? People are down and out of their houses and we are weaker than before because of it. The government likes to keep us down and unweathly for a reason. So no matter who gets in the White House in November we are screwed either way.

The politicians have the best of health care while we have the worse. Politicians have the best houses and neighborhoods while we don't. Politicians some how make alot more money than what they are being paid by their job because every one of them are rich. Funny how we the people struggle day to day with our money while the government people say don't worry we'll help you. So like I said before, " It won't matter who gets in the White House we will still be struggling."

Nice . . . that's my monthly food budget (which I stretch out by combing the advertisements weekly to get the best deals . . . with MY version of seafood being canned tuna) blown on one meal.

Funny how tough it is for some folks, especially the ones who claim to be 'just like you and me'.

What a load of horse splatter.

The reality, to me, with both McCain and Obama is that they'll lie like hookers in the backseat of a taxi during 'shore leave' to get a few votes only to clean up real nice after the election so they can perform the same service upon the corporate elite.

There ain't gonna be any tax cuts, there's nothing coming down the pipe to help those they're lying to, and there's no reasonable expectation voting for either of these lying sacks of puss will make one iota of difference in the grand scheme of things.

The rich folk provide the musing and pull the puppet strings, and the elected officials dance to their tune like marionettes, fueled with lobster, steak, caviar and champagne while the people they're supposed to represent and who's interests they are supposed to protect eat out-of-date hot dogs on stale buns with sides of dented-can beans.

When is everyone going to come to the realization that these 'democratic elections' are nothing other than sideshow extraveganzas to make you believe voting for any mainstream candidate actually makes a difference?

Nothing is going to change until we take it back through whatever means necessary.

Last night as I was falling asleep, I couldn't help but realize that the road to salvation is revolution, be it armed or otherwise. There will be casualties, but we can't go down without a fight, which right now appears to be the way we're going.

Take from the rich . . . if anyone actually believes that will happen, we're in worse shape than I thought.

Under the faint possibility that my vote matters a damn in who gets elected, I would rather have McCain nominating the judges that are going to decide just what rights I may or may not have, presuming I can afford to hire a decent attorney.

The politicians are always politicians...less than wholesome...but even so, I prefer my politicians to have capitalist vices rather than socialist ones.

I may never have any wealth, but if I do get the opportuntiy to be highly taxed, I'd rather not be paying someone to sit at home and watch Oprah, while I provide for my family out of what is left over from my paycheck.

As for spreading the wealth...Obama may intend to do that, but you can be sure he will not be spreading any of his own around.

I also like the politicians I vote for to at least pretend to be above board and honest...like, maybe, posting the complete list of donors to his campaign? Or maybe his grades in college? and that 'lost' college thesis? Or how he got into Harvard Law School?

I don't need any answers about Obama's friends...just his rationale for hiding them from view all these years. No one minds someone being a socialist, or a bombthrower...we just usually hire them as professors rather than elect them to high office.

McCain is no better or worse than any other long term politician, but at the least he would be able to make a decision without asking all his advisors three or four times until he gets it right.

And sorry, I do resent Obama's campaign sending almost a million bucks to ACORN, along with some of my tax dollars tied into the back of some bill that had to get passed...like a budget?

And in case you have't noticed, Barney Frank, Nancy Pelosi, and Obama are all good friends of Fannie Mae/Freddie Mac.

And doesn't anyone think it odd that the October Surprise this election year was a credit crash?

Mind posting a source for that receipt?

Because Michelle wasn't even staying at the Astoria and the story's been retracted

Did you make that up yourself?

You got it from a site that CONFIRMED it FALSE!!!

Source



Readers who are linking over to my blog from Daily Kos, please note I was linking this fake receipt from another site. I CLEARLY linked to where I got the receipt. Saying I printed the phony receipt - without mentioning I was listing this as a link to another site - is misleading.


Not that you had any credibility with me, but hopefully you have none with anyone else here, now.

Guys. Those political posting rules still apply.

Please stop hijacking this thread with partisan sniping and discuss the issue raised, which is to do with McCain's stated views on Tax Cuts.
