    Well we heard a lot of back & forth during the debate--so here we go.

    1. McCain voted against tax cuts & subsidies for BIG OIL, Barack Obama voted for them. FACT

    2. Barack Obama did indeed propose a tax increase in his 2009 budget to middle class working incomes starting at $42,000.00. (This is a matter of record.) FACT.

    3. Barack Obama has asked for 932 million dollars in pork barrel spending in the last 3 years. This is almost one BILLION dollars. FACT

    4. Small business & corporations in this country are the 2nd highest taxed in the entire world. FACT. Now is there any wonder why American jobs would go overseas?

    5.John McCain voted against the Bush tax cuts, because he believed it gave to much to the rich. FACT.

    6. John McCain has never asked for one single penny in over 20 years that he has been in the senate for his home state of Arizona. FACT.

    7. Joe Biden voted against Gulf War 1, & then voted for the Iraq war. FACT. Barack Obama was not in the U.S. senate when 98% of democrats based their decision to go to war on the intelligence they had. Barack Obama never saw that intelligence--FACT. BTW--OSAMA BIN LADEN DISAGREES WITH OBAMA. Bin Laden has continually referred to Iraq as the center front on the war on terror. He has continually called for his comrades in terror to head to Iraq to fight the infidels. FACT

    8. Barack Obama is the second largest donor receipiant of lobbyists representing Fannie Mae & Freddie Mac. FACT.

    9. After Obama calling this the greatest financial crisis since the great depression, he is AWOL from Washington D.C. & has instead decided to pursue his personal political career. FACT.

    Meaning he proposes leaving taxes where they are, which is fine. Obama's tax plan does very little to the middle class, what it does is put the highest earners at paying over 50% in taxes. Almost every other country in the world with these tax brackets have even higher unemployment rates than we do now.
