I’ve done a bang-up job of avoiding politics in this space to date. This is no small feat, as I’ve been told that I have a tendency to express my opinions rather strongly (my wife’s friends are fond of noting this, for some reason).
But as it applies to personal finance I thought this handy little chart depicting the differences in Obama’s and McCain’s tax plans was worthy of posting, sans any editorializing on my part. It shows the percentage change in current taxes paid for various income brackets. Further down is the original chart, which includes rough dollar amounts for a more tangible effect.
Strong opinions welcomed.
