Gentry First!

"Obama will raise your taxes".

You're certainly going to hear that line from John McCain in tonight's debate (and not just once).

But facts are stubborn little things, so arm yourself with this knowledge:

As you can see, McCain should change his campaign slogan to "Gentry First!", which is definitely a more accurate description of his tax plan, and a good way to describe the very homogeneous crowd that attended the Republican convention in Minnesota a while back.

By the way, you can find the full article that features the comparison I posted above here.

And if you wanna have a little fun while you wait for the debate, play around with this tax calculator gadget, which lets you estimate your projected tax cut under the two candidates' tax plans. I found it on the Economists For Obama blog, which is also a good way to kill the two hours or so before the debate.
