I am so sick of hearing about people who are not voting for Barack Obama because they believe he wants to raise everyone's taxes. Here is what I want to say to them.
First of all, if you read his tax plan and don't just listen to the McCain campaign's blatant lies, it is simply not true. Secondly, even if you get a tax cut from the McCain tax plan, it will be much smaller for the average taxpayer vs. the wealthiest taxpayer. And most importantly, I want to tell these people to look at the big picture. Let's see. Everyone got a tax rebate under our current Republican president, George W. Bush. However, how quickly has that tax rebate been spent on higher gas prices and higher food prices? How much has your net worth fallen due to the fall of the housing market and now the stock market? These economic crises can be directly attributed to the Republican policy of deregulation, which McCain has supported until it all blew up last week. Was all of that worth that measly tax cut you got?
