Default Obama's Fiscal Agenda Now Tops $300 Billion, Almost 36 Percent Higher than Clinton's,

As Presidential contenders Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton race toward a key electoral showdown tomorrow, updated findings from the National Taxpayers Union Foundation's (NTUF's) candidate cost analysis project show that their federal budget proposals are racing ahead as well. According to neutral data, Obama's platform would boost yearly federal spending by $307.3 billion compared to Clinton's $226.1 billion -- both measurably higher totals since NTUF began examining the candidates' plans earlier this year.

I noticed it doesn't mention anything about McCain. Is this one-sided? Who are these guys?

After reading this, I am reconsidering my vote for A CHANGE!

Okay, first of all, look at who some of the biggest donors/financial supporters of the NTU are: http://www.mediatransparency.org/rec...cipientID=1129

Now note that among them there are some huge donations from all these "foundations", but do you have any idea who these foundations are or what they endorse? Try the largest contributor, the Sarah Scaife Foundation: http://www.mediatransparency.org/fun...php?funderID=3

Then tell me that these people are "neutral"... My buttox. They do not want Obama in office for obvious reasons.

"Scaife has been a leading financier of New Right causes"

Thanks for the links. That explains it!
