Kent Porter has prepared a helpful website (Obama and McCain Compared), which presents Obama and McCain’s positions on taxes, spending, environment, and health care. It should be useful for any voter who wants some basic, well-sourced facts that go beyond the usual, impoverished discussions we see in the mainstream media.
The following information represents my attempt to cut through all of the divisive spin that our presidential elections have engendered. As a high school teacher who values information and facts over red herring issues that take our minds off of the ball, I have tried to provide details about four key areas–Taxes, Federal Spending, the Environment, and Health Care. I wanted to present factual information about where the two candidates stand on those areas.
