I thought Obama had always said he was going to cut taxes for families making less than 250k. But, as a friend points out, in his infomercial he said he’d cut them for families making less than 200k. A McCain web ad picked up on this the other day. (My column on Obama and taxes here, by the way.)
Rich: The McCain camp earlier tried to make political hay out of this, but I think Obama has been consistent (though, I haven’t checked the earlier statements):
Under $200k = cut, under $250k = no tax raise. FirstRead discussed this a little while ago.
