Obama's Moving the Tax Threshold

Senator Obama has made a lot of promises. First he said people making less than 250,000 dollars would benefit from his plan, then this weekend he announced in an ad that if you're a family making less than 200,000 dollars you'll benefit — but yesterday, right here in Pennsylvania, Senator Biden said tax relief should only go to "middle class people — people making under 150,000 dollars a year." It's interesting how their definition of rich has a way of creeping down. At this rate, it won't be long before Senator Obama is right back to his vote that Americans making just 42,000 dollars a year should get a tax increase. We can't let that happen.
How long before it gets back down to Obama's original $42,000.00? Not long I betcha.

Sounds like Biden just misspoke. All the candidates have been doing gaffes lately.

This is precisely why I won't vote early. I would miss out on getting to worry about stuff like this

I saw there were list of all the politician's gaffes they have made lately. They all have to be at the end of the rope. It is one of the reasons I would never run for office. McCain said he agreed that Pennsylvanians were racist. It has been a long, long campaign.

I don't need to tell myself anything. I just giving all the candidates the benefit of the doubt in these last day. I like to be fair.

Actually, here is a very good article on taxes:

Tax Promises and Reality

A very good analysis, and about what I had figured out myself.

Anybody who votes based on campaign promises is bound to be disappointed - I don't care who the candidate.

Go back and look at what some of the past presidents have promised us if you don't believe me.

I cast my vote for the President / VP I think would be the best choice for this country at this time, not because I think I'm gonna get my taxes lowered or whatever. I'll be happy if I still have a job this time next year.

Oh - and if I were making $150,000 a year (or even half that), I'd consider myself rich.

This is extremely true. Bill Clinton promised a middle-class tax cut, and one of his first announcements after taking office was that it wasn't going to happen. George H.W. Bush promised "no new taxes," and when he gave Congress a huge tax bill, it more or less sealed his demise.

The President, of course, can do nothing without the legislature, and a lot of the proposals (such as McCain's health bill) have no chance of seeing the light of day.

true... but that one issue isn't the only one, so regardless, it wouldn't have affected my vote.

all taxes are going to go up,
and it has nothing to do with balance budget

The article looks like a lot of supposition but nothing as fact yet. I don't doubt that the candidates will not be able to fulfill everything they want to do but I doubt he would change the tax idea by much. It has been the focal point of his campaign.

So, nothing Biden says should be taken seriously then?

Pretty pathetic to make a "gaffe" about people's taxes IMO.

Gaffe-prone Joe Biden put his foot in his mouth again yesterday, mistakenly excluding millions of Americans from his running mate's tax-cut proposal.

The Delaware senator's latest blunder came while discussing Republican tax policies during a television interview in his hometown of Scranton, Pa.
How long before it is back down to what Barack originally said, $42,000.00? Not long I bet (if elected)

Where in the world did you get that I meant Biden should not be taken seriously. He said a comment once that did not reflect the official position. Said once he might of misspoke but if that isn't the way it is and we take every single word as totally what they mean then I guess as soon as McCain takes office he is going to Bomb, Bomb Bomb, Bomb Bomb Iran, just like that old Beach Boys song he sang. I prefer not to be so narrow minded and allow both candidates to have some gaffes.

Biden is the "gaffe" King, so I assumed that nothing he says should be taken seriously.

So, I guess he was serious with the $150,00 amount. I guess it is better than Barack's $42,000

That is quite funny the way you twist words around. I would expect no less from someone who cannot be objective about anything that touches Obama.
