Compare the Candidates: *Taxes*

Topic: The Republicans | By Patricia Murphy | March 1, 2012

Which candidate for president this year wants to eliminate taxes on tips for waiters, waitresses and anybody else who gets 20% (hopefully) at the end of a meal, blowout, or cab ride?

Who wants to pump up American manufacturing by giving anyone willing to make-it-in-the-USA a tax rate of ZERO?

Which man running for president would be the biggest tax cutter, who would raise taxes, and who would leave you with a bigger (or smaller) tax bill at the end of the year?

Janes, you asked and CJP is answering in our newest chart over on the “Candidate Compare” page. Remember that all of these plans would have different effects on the debt and deficit, and different economists have different takes on which ones would help or hurt the economy overall.

We’ll talk about that later, but for now, click on over and read all about it.
