Parsing the stupidity

Looking out for the ‘middle class’

Barack Obama likes to slam McCain for not mentioning the ‘middle class’ during their first debate while touting his erroneous claim that 95% of all Americans will see tax cuts under his administration.

Although he champions himself as the hero of the working class, Obama doesn’t mention that under his tax plans, one- and two-earner families, even those with no children, making $200,000 a year will see a nearly identical reduction in their income taxes as they would under McCain’s plan.  Obama has shifted his class definitions before, but I’m not sure that too many people would consider $200,000 a year (even for a four-person household) to be ‘middle class.’

Why is Obama pushing tax cuts for the wealthy while bashing McCain for planning the same cuts?
