    That makes it even.

    All of Obama's tax ads misrepresent his and McCain's tax plan.

    You ask "Will the lies never end?"

    Then you say The ad claims that Obama will tax "life savings." In fact, he would increase capital gains and dividends taxes only for couples earning more than $250,000 per year, or singles making $200,000. For the rest, taxes on investments would remain unchanged.

    On what possible basis do you suggest that capital gains and dividends for people over 250,000 is not their life savings? I know some people who make that much and have a fair amount of money in the bank. I think they would call their investments "life savings" even if they make over 250K

    Didn't you just tell a lie?

    For all your whining about McCain, you are just as bad as he is. You just don't have millions to put it on TV so you afflict us with it.

    So is it your contention that Obama is not taxing the life savings of people who make over 250,000 a year?

    But raising the taxes on oil companies is the same as raising the tax on home heating oil. Who do you think makes and sells heating oil?

    I starting to understand...

    Unless McCain gives every conflicting detail of Obama's ever changing plans everytime he says anything about Obama then anything he says is a "lie".
