One of the most important issues. Obama will not raise your taxes.

Have you come across those that insist that Barack Obama wants to raise their taxes? Do you just want to scream and shout when you hear McCain/Palin talk about how Obama just can't wait to raise taxes on those making less than $50,000?

Well, it's just not true and I want to share with you a nifty little calculator that you can use when speaking to those skeptics (Blackberry friendly I hear).

So, 95% of families will get a tax break from Obama although more than half of those polled think he is going to raise their taxes. We cannot go down this road again! We must stop the "tax and spend" meme of the Republicans with hard numbers and evidence.

Here are some scenarios in case people don't want to divulge their personal income.
Elderly, single with an income of $35,000?

Your Obama Tax Cut is: $2,937.93
John McCain would tax you $2,663.24 MORE than Barack Obama.

Married, single income of $50,000 with two children.

Your Obama Tax Cut is: $468.76

Married, two incomes of $100,000 with two children.
Your Obama Tax Cut is: $2,945.73
John McCain would tax you $71.59 MORE than Barack Obama.
That's right, two scenarios out of three would mean HIGHER taxes under McCain!

Democrats must fight the same old tactics and show how not only does John McCain not understand the everyday American, he has no interest in helping them.

1. Rich is what, Five Million?
2. How many houses does he have? Not sure!
3. Cindy McCain wears $300,000 in jewelry and clothing to the opening night of the non-political Republican convention after her husband's campaign has attempted to paint the Obama's as "elitist".
4. Oh, McCain said this in 2001:
"I cannot in good conscience support a tax cut in which so many of the benefits go to the most fortunate among us, at the expense of middle class Americans who most need tax relief."
All you have to do is look at the Washington Post comparison of their tax plans and see that McCain has flipped to the point where he is just more of the same. More borrow and spend Republicans. This most certainly is not the Maverick McCain but McBush claiming to be his own man (Oh yes, Palin? Not his choice, that was Rove's idea, the "higher ups" told him he couldn't have little Joe Lieberman as his Veep choice).

Obama is the one who is going to help working families the most and we have to spread this truth far and wide!
