Barack Obama and John McCain are arguing over which tax plan would benefit this or that group of taxpayers the most.
That misses the point completely. The question is which plan is best for the country, not which is best for a particular individual.
And we don't know which plan would be best, because neither plan will be implemented. Either plan would be worked over by Congress. In Barack Obama's case, the Democrats would throw in all kinds of special interest goodies. In John McCain's case, he'd have to accept changes to get it through what is likely to remain a Democrat-controlled Congress.
What we have to look at is the basic philosophy behind each plan.
Barack Obama says he wants to soak the rich, while John McCain says he wants to cut spending.
