Fairness

March 2, 2008

From BARACK OBAMA: TAX FAIRNESS FOR THE MIDDLE CLASS(pdf):

Rather than relieving the burden on working families, the current administration has provided tax cut after tax cut to the wealthiest Americans and enacted tax breaks for the most well-connected corporations. Barack Obama will restore fairness to the tax code and provide 150 million workers the tax relief they deserve.

From Congressman Jim Saxton(pdf):

“The CBO analysis shows that the 2001 and 2003 tax cuts have lowered the tax burden on middle income taxpayers to the lowest levels since at least the late 1970s,” Saxton said. “The CBO tax figures, put into historical perspective, also show that the income tax burden of middle income households has been reduced to its lowest levels in many years,” Saxton concluded.

    Couldn’t open ’em. Apparently my PDF reader is not up to the task.

    gotta say, that obama whitepaper is very well done from a communications standpoint. takes an intimidating topic and makes it accessible to the average reader (propaganda 101).

    of course it also oversimplifies a lot and stokes the flames of class warfare as the democrats so often do.
