Sarah Palin Full Interview with Charles Gibson on ABC News

Sarah Palin rocked this interview as best she could in my opinion. Charles Gibson did not fully understand the Bush Doctrine when he asked that question, and that is where the confusion came in. The McCain / Palin ticket has my vote and I look forward to not having my taxes nearly doubled by Obama. Rock the vote republicans!

I couldn't help but notice this post after your last video posting. And I'm confused... I thought that under Obama's plan that taxes go up only for those who make over $250,000 a year—is that you? If not, how did you get that number? I don't want my taxes going up either, so I'd really like to know.

Maybe Obama has changed his tax plan? But this is where I got my information (the tax section of course):

It looks to me like that website exists to sell NoBO stickers and therefore is hardly impartial! The more they inflame people, the more stickers they sell. I wonder if they make more than $250,000? ;)

I just Googled for info and found a graphic in the Washington Post that shows how both plans break down by income level and cites a Tax Policy Center/Brookings Institute analysis of the two candidates. In my case, it seems that Obama's plan will save me about $300 in income taxes.

The people who really get hit are the 147,000 richest... which (warning: conspiracy theory) may be why there is so much mis-information out there. But hey, if I was one of them, I'd be trying to cover my assets too!

Well, it is easy to talk the talk at this point... but it sounds like you believe Obama will walk the walk. I'm undecided about that....

I found this which seems to sum it up pretty well...
Allowing the Bush tax cuts to expire would result in increased taxes for individual taxpayers making more than $42,000 a year, but not for families or married couples. Obama, however, has repeatedly promised to extend the Bush tax cuts for families making less than $250,000 a year. McCain has promised to extend all the Bush tax cuts, and add a few more of his own.

The much more important question, which neither candidate has answered satisfactorily, is how they will extend the Bush tax cuts and balance the budget at the same time. A Tax Policy Center analysis of the tax plans of both McCain and Obama shows deficits stretching into the future as far as the eye can see. In other words, both candidates have made promises on taxes that will be impossible for them to keep without exacerbating the already huge imbalances in the U.S. economy.
