Try The CATO Institute. If you’re looking for TaxCutFacts.Org, the site set up by the Obama campaign that, surprisingly, finds that Obama has the better tax plan, well, you know where to find it. And about how far you can trust it.
The reality is, Democrats don’t every cut taxes. Period.
This guys isn’t going to, either. While a rational person isn’t going to be rooting for higher taxes on the folks who hire people, build businesses, and purchases services and products from other businesses that help keep the real world running–the rational person also recognizes that the reality is, with Obama, you aren’t going to get a tax cut. You aren’t. Democrats do not cut taxes. Ever.
Bill Clinton promised a middle-class tax cut. During the campaign.
What happened with that? Oh, that’s right. It didn’t.
I mean, there will be a good reason. Some sort of spin. A really great reason that, even though more taxes are disappearing from your paycheck and your 401k has just been unilaterally taken over by Big Brother, you somehow got a tax cut, even though you’re getting less money. It really was a tax cut. Only, the extra service charges and hidden fees and special deductions and other things mean, yes, you are technically getting less money now. But Obama still gave you that middle-class tax cut. That somehow cost you money.
Or, maybe it’s that Biden emergency. After that generated crisis Biden talked about, things are too dire. Everybody must understand that, even though we go through with the tax increases, we can’t do the tax cuts now. Not with this crisis.
McCain’s tax cuts might not sound as good as Obama’s, but they are much more likely to actually show up. Not a guarantee–McCain ain’t exactly a rock-ribbed Reagan conservative. But more likely.
What is a guarantee, that, if you work–and I mean, work much at all–the Democrats will take more of your money from you. The Bush tax cuts will expire. The Democrats will come up with programs that “cut” your taxes while taking more “investments” out of your paychecks.
How do I know this? Because they will. They cannot help it. Taking more of your money is a congenital condition with Democrats. It’s not something they can stop, except by becoming Republicans. And often, not even that will do it.
