Yesterday, September 12, 2008, Senator Barack Obama spoke in Dover, NH. This has been covered by Daily Kos here. Below is a five minute video of his presentation, and here are a couple key paragraphs, taken from that Daily Kos posting:

“[McCain’s] plan gives absolutely nothing to about 100 million American households. I can make a firm pledge. Under my plan, no family making less than $250,000 a year will see any form of tax increase. Not your income tax, not your payroll tax, not your capital gains taxes, not any of your taxes.

And my opponent can’t make that pledge, and here’s why. For the first time in American history, John McCain wants to tax your health-care benefits. Apparently, Senator McCain doesn’t think it’s enough that health care premiums have doubled, he thinks that you should have to pay taxes on them, too. That’s a $3.6 trillion tax increase potentially on middle-class families. And that would eventually leave tens of millions of you paying higher taxes or losing your benefits. That’s his idea of change.

Here’s Ron Paul on Meet The Press yesterday, December 23, 2007. If only he weren’t for elimination of the income tax! His foreign policy, which he gets into in the later part of this interview is right on! Listen to Tim Russert try to trick him into saying he supports Al Qaeda. It doesn’t work!
