I think they are both disastrous. If Mc Cain plans to continue Bush's economic policy, this country will be even worse in a couple years than it is now. Especially if he does not plan on withdrawing from Iraq anytime soon, very irresponsible! Obama on the other hand has suggested various programs but anybody with a basic understanding of Economics understands the concept of "There is no free lunch", so for sure, someone will have to pay for all these programs (my only guess is through increased taxation). One thing I dislike about Obama is his whole "Robin Hood" approach, he wants to increase capital gain tax substantially which is absurd. Most people that invest in stocks and mutual funds are not wealthy. His ideas are based on Marxist and socialist principles which I personally abhor. In my opinion, they both stink.
