Debate Winner: Obama or McCain?
I admitted when I thought Palin had lost her debate, but I think McCain won this one. McCain may have started slow, because everyone wants to blame the Republicans when something goes wrong with the economy. You know, the real government body that is able to pass regulations and make laws is Congress. Hasn’t this body been majority Democratic since 2006? Shouldn’t over 2 years be enough time to fix things? Aren’t the big players in Congress that are in charge of our financial situations Democrats?
By the end McCain had proved himself and his position. He doesn’t speak as well as Obama, but Obama couldn’t use his classy rhetoric to win it tonight.
I loved how Obama contradicted himself several times, but one major case was with Iraq and genocide. Obama criticizes McCain for supporting the attacks on Iraq. He said we should have never gone there. Later when asked what we should do with global issues of genocide and cruel leaders that didn’t affect our national security, he said we have a moral responsibility to take on these leaders and prevent another Holocaust. Now if we look back at Hussein, wasn’t he sentenced to death because of genocide? So this case was not one of those that we should have prevented apparently!
McCain is going to prevail. Obama can’t pick a position, and all of the things Biden said last week were not carried over to this debate. Does that mean Obama doesn’t have a clue, or Biden has his own agendas? I think Obama is lost and can’t find the right thing to say now…
Obama also wants to impose tax hikes on small businesses over $250,000. He tells us that is only a small percentage of small businesses, but we know 50% of small businesses are above this line. Let’s put this in perspective: If you have 3 employees who make $50,000, by the time you pay salaries, taxes, insurance (which Obama wants to enforce small business employers to provide better insurance instead of supporting their employee’s individual plans), offie expenses, rent, etc., you will have to make well over $250,000 in revenue. Now I don’t know about you, but 3 employees is a pretty small business, and for Obama to make it out like his tax hikes won’t affect many small businesses, he is wrong!
As I have stated before, the treasury department has shown through several analyses that tax cuts on everyone, including those over $250,000 has resulted in more taxes paid by the top 1% and then top 10%, and the government collected $780 Billion more dollars in tax revenue after our last series of tax cuts. Taxing the rich, as Obama wants to do, is only going to hurt middle America. Do you think someone who makes millions and millions is going to suffer from a $200,000 tax increase? NO!!! But placing tax increases on small businesses over $250,000, which are 50% of all small businesses, will destroy our economy!
