    * Cut taxes for 95 percent of workers and their families with a tax cut of $500 for workers or $1,000 for working couples.
    * Provide generous tax cuts for low- and middle-income seniors, homeowners, the uninsured, and families sending a child to college or looking to save and accumulate wealth.
    * Eliminate capital gains taxes for small businesses, cut corporate taxes for firms that invest and create jobs in the United States, and provide tax credits to reduce the cost of healthcare and to reward investments in innovation.
    * Dramatically simplify taxes by consolidating existing tax credits, eliminating the need for millions of senior citizens to file tax forms, and enabling as many as 40 million middle-class Americans to do their own taxes in less than five minutes without an accountant.

    After, approving 700 billion dollars in this bailout and in the end will be more, when you include the 24 billion the Auto companies just got and the 71 billion that currently on the floor. Who here thinks that Americans will get ANY kind of tax cut under the Obama plan, or the McCain plan for that matter?

    Bush raised taxes more than any president in American history. Deficit spending is an invisible tax.

    So you are right. It is all a shell game. But Bush and Reagan are responsible for 90% of the National Debt with their tax cut and borrow BS.

    That's not the question though Chris, the question is do you think McCain or Obama will be able to cut taxes and pay for this massive bailout bill at the same time? It seems to me that the US Government and in this case, the US taxpayer is going to be stuck paying for this mess.

    You may under Obama's plan. Personally I don't care if we can do some good things, UHC, a fair tax structure, and more jobs in the good old US of A.

    A vote for McCain/Palin is a vote against the fundamental principle of America, the right of the individual to lead their life privately without the government interfering.

    I don't want one. I think Biden was right, the rich should do the patriotic thing and give back what they've saved under Bush.

    If by we you mean the middle class, 81 percent of households will see tax cuts under Obama's plan. McCain plans to decrease the corperate tax from 35 to 25 percent so if he needs more money he would took to middle and lower classes.

    A fair tax code... That would be an improvement.

    I wouldn't be unhappy with less paperwork either. Needing to support a Tax Preparation Industry to help us do our paperwork every year makes us look pretty stupid from space.

    If you believe in a free lunch, then "yes." In reality, the answer is "no." What's interesting, however, is that both candidates promise tax cuts. That means that both candidates believe that the government has been taxing the citizens too much. Just how long has this been going on?
