Taxes on the Campaign Trail
September 9, 2008
Taxes are one of the big issues on the campaign trail this week. Democratic nominee Sen. Barack Obama considered the merits of keeping the 2001-03 tax cuts in place until they expire in 2010 rather than rescinding them immediately; Republican nominee Sen. John McCain characterized his view as keeping taxes low and cutting them; and even Libertarian nominee former Rep. Bob Barr quotes the Tax Foundation‘s Tax Freedom Day.
