O’Reilly vs Obama II: Socialism Is Neighborliness

 Obama

Voted to give Social Security benefits to illegals  

John McCain..No     Barak Obama..Yes  

CAPITAL GAINS TAX

 MCCAIN  0% on home sales up to $500,000 per home (couples). McCain does not propose any change in existing home sales income tax.  

OBAMA  28% on profit from ALL home sales. (How does this affect you? If you sell your home and make a profit, you will pay 28% of your gain on taxes. If you are heading toward retirement and would like to down-size your home or move into a retirement community, 28% of the money you make from your home will go to taxes. This proposal will adversely affect the elderly who are counting on the income from their homes as part of their retirement income.)  

DIVIDEND TAX

 MCCAIN  15% (no change)   OBAMA  39.6% – (How will this affect you? If you have any money invested in stock market, IRA, mutual funds, college funds, life insurance, retirement accounts, or anything that pays or reinvests dividends, you will now be paying nearly 40% of the money earned on taxes if Obama becomes president. The experts predict that 'Higher tax rates on dividends and capital gains would crash the stock market, yet do absolutely nothing to cut the deficit.')  

INCOME TAX

 MCCAIN  (no changes)  Single making 30K – tax $4,500  Single making 50K – tax $12,500  Single making 75K – tax $18,750  Married making 60K- tax $9,000  Married making 75K – tax $18,750  Married making 125K – tax $31,250

 OBAMA (reversion to pre-Bush tax cuts)  Single making 30K – tax $8,400  Single making 50K – tax $14,000  Single making 75K – tax $23,250  Married making 60K – tax $16,800  Married making 75K – tax $21,000  Married making 125K – tax $38,750  Under Obama, your taxes could almost double!  

INHERITANCE TAX  

MCCAIN  – 0% (No change, Bush repealed this tax)

 OBAMA  Restore the inheritance tax   Many families have lost businesses, farms, ranches, and homes that have been in their families for generations because they could not afford the inheritance tax. Those willing their assets to loved ones will only lose them to these taxes.  

NEW TAXES PROPOSED BY OBAMA  

New government taxes proposed on homes that are more than 2400 square feet. New gasoline taxes (as if gas weren't high enough already) New taxes on natural resources consumption (heating gas, water, electricity) New taxes on retirement accounts, and last but not least….New taxes to pay for socialized medicine so we can receive the same level of medical care as other third-world countries!!!   You can verify the above at the following web sites:
