Obama is for higher taxes is that what McCain said?

Unfortunately I did not have the chance to see the debate yesterday but I have been watching some of it on CNN.com and a few key issues stuck out to me.

Absolutely correct Mr. McCain you are a genius! Well for most they might take your word for it, forget that. So I went and did some checking and yes Mr. Obama definitely voted for higher taxes many times, however the higher taxes were on highly paid people making over 1 million dollars a year, another tax raise was against large corporations where the additional tax funds would be used to support headstart programs, nutritional health programs in schools and veterans health care.

To see University of Pennsylvania’s official findings endorsed by CNN follow this link

Furthermore, Mr. McCain plans to increase taxes on middle class and lower income levels while decreasing taxes on higher class people who are already making money. I think everyone is in agreement that lower and middle class families are the ones that feeling the economic sting the most, so why would we help corporate executives hoard even more money than are already? It doesn’t make sense, increase on the lower income and give tax cuts to the higher income?! It just seems idiotic and stupid to even suggest or mutter an idea like this.

and I am sorry but everytime I see or hear McCain talk it simply cites how many times he seen or heard it something in order to support his side but how many times have you done it? Does he really have any real experience with it? For instance, he continually notates others work and how he watched them execute on certain issues but I have a problem with that so you watched people congratulations but have you have influenced or had in any part in orchestrating those types of policies or any involvement your own self?!

To me it looks like he just trying to avoid the accusations by putting up some argument that is meant more to distract and draw attention away from the real topic of discussion. He never really answered that question only avoided the subject of entitlements.

    I don’t know about that, from what I understand it would be on corporate business which would be the people on average making six figures, sorry but I would have to disagree with you on that. Whats your stance, obviously McCain who is going to give tax cuts to big business who already make enough for it not to matter?!
