Please, keep this civil. I’m interested to know which candidate’s economic plan will be better for our country? Don’t know their differing plans? I’m not going to go through all of it here, so research it on your own.
My Answer: In my opinion, it’s McCain all the way. He’s weak on the economy, but he’s going to pick a VP who is strong on it, and his conservative principles will create more job opportunities, ACTUALLY tax the middle class less, AND tax corporate America less which will keep corporations from going overseas and creating more jobs. When you look at the Bush tax cuts, it cut the lowest tax bracket from 15% to 10%. That’s a 33% decrease. If you let those tax cuts expire for the lower-middle class, you are in effect, raising their tax bracket 50% higher (going from 10% to 15%). I don’t like that Obama wants to raise the capital gains tax, because even working-class America will be affected by that, because much of the middle class has equity and real estate investments that would be affected by a capital gains hike.
What’s your take? Please explain WHY, not just because you love the way Obama smiles or that McCain is a patriot.
