Proposed changes in taxes after 2008 General election:
CAPITAL GAINS TAX

MCCAIN
15%(no change)

OBAMA
28%

How does this affect you? If you sell your home and make a profit, you will pay 28% of your gain on taxes. If you are heading toward retirement and would like to down-size your home or move into a retirement community, 28% of the money you make from your home will go to taxes. This proposal will adversely affect the elderly who are counting on the income from their homes as part of their retirement income.

DIVIDEND TAX

MCCAIN
15%(no change)

OBAMA
39.6%

How will this affect you? If you have any money invested in stock market, IRA, mutual funds, college funds, life insurance, retirement accounts, or anything that pays or reinvests dividends, you will now be paying nearly 40% of the money earned on taxes if Obama or Clinton become president. The experts predict that "Higher tax rates on dividends and capital gains would crash the stock market yet do absolutely nothing to cut the deficit."

INCOME TAX

MCCAIN
(no changes)
Single making 30K - tax $4,500
Single making 50K - tax $12,500
Single making 75K - tax $18,750
Married making 60K- tax $9,000
Married making 75K - tax $18,750
Married making 125K - tax $31,250

OBAMA
(reversion to pre-Bush tax cuts)
Single making 30K - tax $8,400
Single making 50K - tax $14,000
Single making 75K - tax $23,250
Married making 60K - tax $16,800
Married making 75K - tax $21,000
Married making 125K - tax $38,750

How does this affect you? No explanation needed. This is pretty straight forward.

INHERITANCE TAX

MCCAIN
0%
(No change, Bush repealed this tax)

OBAMA
keep the inheritance tax

How does this affect you? Many families have lost businesses, farms and ranches, and homes that have been in their families for generations because they could not afford the inheritance tax. Those willing their assets to loved ones will not only lose them to these taxes.

Gone for 2009-- Giambi, Abreu, Cano, Cabrera, Ponson, Rasner, Pavano, I. Rodriguez, Britton, Pettitte ( If CC is signed)

In for 2009-- Hughes, Orlando Hudson, Hank Blalock, CC, Gardner, Melancon. This would vastly improve the defense and make the team younger all at once. If they could trade Cano he would most likely fetch at least a good pitcher in return. Maybe he could go to the Dodgers for one of their young pitchers and he could be reunited with Torre , Bowa and Mattingly.

Rotation

Wang- Chamberlain-CC- Hughes-Mussina or Kennedy
Wang-Chamberlain-Pettitte - Hughes - Mussina or Chase Wright

I know a lot of people don't like Kennedy but I still think he will adjust and be a good #4 starter. Chase Wright has pitched well this year and being lefty never hurts. I would only take back Mussina if he accepts a 1 year deal. No multi-year deals for a 39 year old pitcher.
