Comparing Obama and McCain Tax Plans: A Different View

It seems that there has been quite a bit of publicity for the tax proposal comparison graph done by the Washington Post based on the analysis done by Tax Policy Center.

I thought it would be useful to see the data with a bit more context. It’s the same data, though the numbers might vary slightly because this graph is based on the September 12 update to the Tax Policy Center analysis, but presented as actual rates rather than changes in rates.

I didn’t include the income break-downs, but they are the same as for the other versions of this chart.

I recall expressing a similar sentiment years ago. Of course, at this point there’s so much bureaucratic power that even a do-nothing president will just allow the government to continue to grow. I think we’re a long way from the pendulum swinging back.

Graph comparing your healthcare views with Presidential candidates

Health Central has put together an interactive graph for comparing your views on a few key areas of the healthcare debate with the expressed views or plans of the various Presidential candidates.

It’s not very in-depth, but it’s reasonably edifying and somewhat entertaining (particularly the transitions form topic to topic). It also includes the views of various individuals as well (some health care professionals, some not).

Oh look, I can embed it:
