Hey Barack, What About the Rest of Us?

Barack Obama is proud of the fact that for people making under $200,000 there will be a tax cut under his tax plan.  He even has Business Week buying into this garbage.  “It’s just flat wrong” to say people would do worse under Obama, says Len Burman a Senior Fellow at the Urban Institute  “Most lower- and middle-class people would pay less taxes under Obama than they would under the proposals being put forth by McCain.”

The problem is that it doesn’t take into account middle income people like me who make over $250,000 a year.  McCain will save me a lot of money that I am more than willing to trickle on those less fortunate than myself by tipping well, buying more luxuries, driving a bigger car, and generally spreading it around the economy.  Those who benefit from the Obama tax cuts will spend it on things like food, rent, and medical care–things that they had to buy anyway.

If Obama gets elected I will probably have to give up my Cherokee and get some small car that gets at least 15 miles to the gallon.  I am not the only one in this boat too.  We cannot allow somebody like Obama to take our hard earned money to spread it around to working stiffs and seniors making less than $50,000.
