"This agenda is paid for," Obama said as the Republican National Committee promoted an "Obama Spend-O-Meter" online to track his proposals and portray him as a tax-and-spend liberal. Obama explained that the money for his spending proposals will come from ending the Iraq war, cutting tax breaks for corporations, taxing carbon pollution and raising taxes on high income earners.

Saw that coming  Wink

But, once again, everyone forgets that I am not opposed to the idea  Roll Eyes .... as long as its reasonable.  Some people are being entirely unreasonable because they 'don't like the people' that make money.

BTW, Obama has far too many (vote buying) ideas with little to no detail on how to pay for them.  Its election rhetoric.

End the Iraq war?  Great, but overnight?  Can't start spending the money until its really over and I think he's passing far too much optimism around on a time frame for what the 'end' is.

End tax breaks for corporations?  Gee thats awfully specific.  Which ones? (some actually serve an altruistic, lib loving, purpose  Wink ).  Do you really get back significant money? (much like 'tax shelters', we have no idea how much or how effective they even are).  Gimme specifics on which ones and how much and I may be able to get behind it.

Tax carbon pollution.  OK.  How much does that give us though?  I'm guessing not much.



As I've said before, the Obama camp may believe they can get elected on a cult of personality, but at some point he's going to have to provide details.  I see all width and no depth to him right now.
