Obama raising taxes? Pants are fire. Again. Business Week (06.12.08):
"The (Tax Policy Center) took a look at the various tax proposals put forth by the two candidates and estimated that Obama's plan would lead to a boost in aftertax income for all but the highest earners, while taking a smaller bite out of government tax revenues than would McCain's plans." Obama vs. McCain: Taxing and SpendingIf Johnny's plan "went into effect in 2009, married couples in the bottom fifth of the population would see aftertax income go up just 0.2%, while those in the next quintile would see a 0.7% hike. But those in the top quintile would see a bump up in aftertax income of 2.7%." And about Obama raising taxes on electricity? Jeepers. Another lie.
