Remind me again how Barack Obama is so much more of a "redistributor" than John McCain is? John McCain wants refundable tax credits, to limit Social Security to wealthier recipients so we can pay more to lower income recipients (how is that not spreading the wealth around) and plan to keep the progressive income tax system we have now without a major overhaul. Whether he's for tax cuts for the rich or against them, we can only guess since he voted against them before he decided he was for them.
Check out this clip from Morning Joe. They do a pretty good job of pointing out that Obama's proposed tax rates on the rich are not confiscatory (love that word) and really not so different than what have today and no different than what we had under Clinton. But, why bother with facts when you can spread fear and lies?
