Yes, this should be THE thread for discussion on the election. There should probably be separate ones for the debates, but I thought I would kick this off with Obama slamming McCain:
Obama, a Democrat from Illinois, in turn, said between campaign stops in St. Louis Tuesday, "I've said that McCain is running to serve out a third Bush term. But the truth is, when it comes to taxes, that's not being fair to George Bush. McCain wants to add $300 billion more in tax breaks and loopholes for big corporations and the wealthy and he hasn't even explained how to pay for it."http://www.abcnews.go.com/GMA/Vote2008/ ... 684&page=1
But then, McCain gets slammed by fact.
McCain favors extending tax cuts enacted under President Bush, cuts that the Democrats have charged favor the wealthy. Although McCain initially agreed with the Democrats and opposed the tax cuts, he has since made preserving them a central part of his economic plans.
