    "McCain is essentially playing the role of Janus, with two faces looking in the opposite directions. Calling for tax cuts without any plans to offset those cuts with reductions in government spending is bad economic policy, and one that has put us in the dire economic situation Americans currently face. If McCain fails to illuminate any other plans to reduce the size of government aside from stopping earmarks, he'll prove himself to be just another 'borrow-and-spend' Republican, making him no better than his Democratic rivals."

    Except for the fact that he is against abortion on demand, which both of the democrat candidates are for. I think that's a BIG difference.

    I originally posted a different reply but I have withdrawn it from this thread. This thread is not about the subject of abortion.

    We need to cherish life period. In or out of the womb makes no difference. Remember, abortion is the number one killer of children in America.

    Right now, best I can remember, one of the most dangerous places a child can be is in the womb. And people want to support a president that supports that?

    EDITED TO ADD: Sorry. I just read that this thread is not about abortion. My bad. I thought we were pointing out that there are differences between the candidates. Just wanted to point out one.

    No problem. The press release deals with tax cuts and spending cuts.

    We all like to direct threads towards our pet issue(s). :)

    Sounds like Obama to me...

    I hope Hillary wins the nomination. She will be easier to beat.

    Unless he's been dead two weeks, he'll get my vote.

    ==Of course its not. That is the big, smelly, elephant in the room for every Republican, or pro-life Democrat, who supports Obama. Obama wants to save the lives of our troops, and that is great, but he supports ending the lives of millions of babies. You want to talk about someone having "two faces looking in the opposite directions". Obama fits that bill perfectly.

    Now, to the OP...

    ==I agree such policy is bad. Sadly it has been the policy of the current administration. However that is not the position of John McCain. McCain has made it clear that he would seek to cut wasteful government programs. He has also called for a one year discretionary spending "pause" to give him the chance to "review of the effectiveness of federal programs". So McCain does have plans in place to offset the tax cuts. Unlike Obama, however, McCain does not believe in punishing success in this country. Obama is not a racist, but he is a classist (as are many liberals). I am far from wealthy, so Obama's tax increase would probably not affect me, however I am against increasing taxes for the wealthy. For me it is a matter of principle, not politics.

    I would say "Thank You" but that's not what this thread is about, so I won't.
