Obama's tax cuts

Very interesting chart from the Chartjunk blog showing the impact of Barack Obama’s tax plan, compared to McCain’s. It’s based on the same data as the Washington Post chart, but scaled to more accurately reflect the impact on real numbers of tax payers. Make sure to read the article to understand how the chart was drawn.

I’ve never seen a fundamental ideological difference laid out so clearly in numbers. Add to this the impact of the health care plans (skewed to help average and low-income earners in Obama’s, skewed towards high-income earners in McCains), and you can see two very very different futures for America.

For what it’s worth, I strongly support the Obama plan. A fair distribution of income prevents concentration of political power in the hands of the very rich, and leads to a healthier civil society.
