Headline of October 31st New York Times story:
For Incomes Below $100,000, a Better Tax Break in Obama’s Plan
Sentence in first para of the same New York Times story:

Chart accompanying the same New York Times story:

McCain Tax Plan Better for Middle Class

So, what makes you think this is all about the TAXPAYER, Mister Selfish?

I mean, how's a political suckup supposed to survive if he has LESS to hand out to buy votes with?

It's a better tax break with Obama's plan... for Obama.

Jeeez, like, uh, DUUUUuuuuuuh.
