Obama’s New Debate Tax Attack
They will raise your taxes.
It’s an old Republican line of attack, but Obama’s latest ad throws it in Sen. John McCain’s face.
Zeroing in on last night’s exchange about McCain’s health-care plan — which taxes employer benefits — the new ad offers a succinct summation from the VP Debate:
PRODUCTION NOTES: Sen. Joseph Biden’s aides promised a prosecutor’s brief for the debate, and this ad carries on that style. Terse messages flash on a black screen, while soundbites from last night are aired. It’s “just the facts,” straight to camera, and Biden looks deadly serious about the health-care choice between the two tickets this year.
It’s a sharp contrast to Alaksa Gov. Sarah Palin — who is depicted as unable to “explain” her own plan.
