In an article by the Tacoma Morning News Tribune (McClatchy Newspapers and the Associated Press) the standing on various issues including Defense, Veterans, Environment, Energy, Education, and Healthcare are compared. I did a little research, and some math, and come up with the following conservative figures based on the article.
(total x min mo. salary x 36 mo.)
|"Climate Friendly" energy program |
|Energy Tax Credit|
($1000 x total families in US)
|Improve Battery Technology Prize|
|Universal Pre-Kindergarten (per year)|
|College Community Service Tax Credit |
(4000 x total college students x 10%)
|Universal Medical Program (per year)|
As you can see, Obama’s list of spending would be $324.6 BILLION, vs. McCain’s $300 Million. We all know that Congress controls the budget, but you can bet with a Democrat majority in both House and Senate, and a Democrat President, you’re only seeing the beginning of another huge social (socialist) spending spree.
