Catapaulting the Propaganda

The truth about taxes

If there ever was a doubt that a lie repeated often enough can supplant the truth in people's perceptions of reality, take a look at the two graphs below. The first is from the Tax Policy Center and compares the after-income effects of the McCain and Obama tax proposals.


Now, take a look at what Americans believe each candidate's tax proposal will do:


Although only 1% of Americans will see an actual tax increase under Obama's plan, 53% believe he will increase their taxes. I was a little curious why Republicans hammered Obama so hard on taxes during the convention when his policy actually benefits most Americans more than McCain's. I guess they just thought they wouldn't get called on it.
