    McCain vs. Obama

    A little light reading for the afternoon, discuss amongst yourselves...






    2008 PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE COMPARISON TALKING POINTS


    ISSUE


    JOHN McCAIN


    BARAK OBAMA

    Favors new drilling offshore US



    McCain Yes



    Obama No



    Will appoint judges who interpret the law not make it



    McCain Yes



    Obama No




    Served in the US Armed Forces



    McCain Yes



    Obama No



    Amount of time served in the US Senate



    McCain 22 YEARS



    Obama 173 DAYS



    Will institute a socialized national health care plan



    McCain No



    Obama Yes



    Supports abortion throughout the pregnancy



    McCain No



    Obama Yes



    Would pull troops out of Iraq immediately



    McCain No



    Obama Yes



    Supports gun ownership rights



    McCain Yes



    Obama No



    Supports homosexual marriage



    McCain No



    Obama Yes



    Proposed programs will mean a huge tax increase



    McCain No



    Obama Yes



    Voted against making English the official language



    McCain No



    Obama Yes



    Voted to give Social Security benefits to illegals



    McCain No



    Obama Yes




    CAPITAL GAINS TAX




    MCCAIN



    0% on home sales up to $500,000 per home (couples). McCain does not propose any change in existing home sales income tax.



    OBAMA



    28% on profit from ALL home sales. (How does this affect you? If you sell your home and make a profit, you will pay 28% of your gain on taxes. If you are heading toward retirement and would like to down-size your home or move into a retirement community, 28% of the money you make from your home will go to taxes. This proposal will adversely affect the elderly who are counting on the income from their homes as part of their retirement income.)




    DIVIDEND TAX




    MCCAIN



    15% (no change)



    OBAMA



    39.6% - (How will this affect you? If you have any money invested in stock market, IRA, mutual funds, college funds, life insurance, retirement accounts, or anything that pays or reinvests dividends, you will now be paying nearly 40% of the money earned on taxes if Obama becomes president. The experts predict that 'Higher tax rates on dividends and capital gains would crash the stock market, yet do absolutely nothing to cut the deficit.')




    INCOME TAX

    MCCAIN



    (no changes)



    Single making 30K - tax $4,500
    Single making 50K - tax $12,500
    Single making 75K - tax $18,750
    Married making 60K- tax $9,000
    Married making 75K - tax $18,750
    Married making 125K - tax $31,250




    OBAMA (reversion to pre-Bush tax cuts)



    Single making 30K - tax $8,400
    Single making 50K - tax $14,000
    Single making 75K - tax $23,250
    Married making 60K - tax $16,800
    Married making 75K - tax $21,000
    Married making 125K - tax $38,750
    Under Obama, your taxes could almost double!





    INHERITANCE TAX

    MCCAIN



    - 0% (No change, Bush repealed this tax)



    OBAMA



    Restore the inheritance tax



    Many families have lost businesses, farms, ranches, and homes that have been in their families for generations because they could not afford the inheritance tax. Those willing their assets to loved ones will only lose them to these taxes.




    NEW TAXES PROPOSED BY OBAMA

    New government taxes proposed on homes that are more than 2400 square feet. New gasoline taxes (as if gas weren't high enough already) New taxes on natural resources consumption (heating gas, water, electricity) New taxes on retirement accounts, and last but not least....New taxes to pay for socialized medicine so we can receive the same level of medical care as other third-world countries!!!

    WOW... More taxes. Great. Lets provide eveything for everyone. NICE, I like more taxes, and higher gas prices. Maybe I wont have to pay for my own medical insurance anymore if Obama wins. Is that how it works, or only people we dont know will get the free medical insurance?

    Okay, so it's either Obama, or vote for GW Bush's 3rd term in office (McCain). Ugh.. I hate it when stuff isn't really that clear cut.

    i like paying takes its awesome that they take approximately 25 percent of my paycheck and that if i buy a house i have to pay another 4-5g in property taxes every year plus 8.25% sales tax on what ever little money i have left to buy any thing. i love being bankrupted by the government.
