    Obama must be getting really worried if he's trying to scare senior citizens:

    From Factcheck.org:

    Obama accuses McCain of proposing to cut benefits. Not true.

    It's despicable

    And all of McCain's adds are honest and above board.

    Please, if you are going to call one out, call them both out.

    The thing with MCain's adds are they are true. Can you point to one add that has not been true?

    There is a difference between exaggeration and flat out lies.

    Obama has been running commercials targeting senior citzines that have flat out lies.

    Factcheck.org has about as much credibility as wikipedia. Neither are regulated and neither are reviewed nor do they provide actual facts only opinions.

    Ok, then let me help you,

    He is eliminating the capital gains on start up and small businesses
    Fuck Corporate america, I work for the biggest bank in the country and they dont give 2 shits about anyone. I have worked for 3 very large banks and they have been outsourcing and using tax loopholes for years.

    Income tax - If you net over $250k a year which I doubt you do and as we know 95% of americans dont, and if your just over you use write offs to get under, its not that difficult, just dont take your taxes to H&R block and go to an accountant instead.
