… and you’re working for no one, but me.”
So sang George Harrison on the Beatles 1966 Revolver LP (or here live with Eric Clapton). The Washington Post has a fantastic graphic comparing the tax proposals of Obama and McCain. Take a look and see who you think understands the plea of Harrison’s song.
Obama’s plan gives the biggest cuts to those who make the least, while McCain would give the largest cuts to the very wealthy. For the approximately 147,000 families that make up the top 0.1 percent of the income scale, the difference between the two plans is stark. While McCain offers a $269,364 tax cut, Obama would raise their taxes, on average, by $701,885 – a difference of nearly $1 million.
