I will be angry if this is true. I was seeing ads about Obama's tax plan up until yesterday - to suddenly flip flop on it so quickly would be BS IMHO.

I'm hoping it's just another false republican rumor.
There may not be links, but it was said in various campaing stumps around the country. The numbers kept changing from $250k to $200k to $150k and back. Never could get a straight answer from the guy.

It's a little late to be figuring this out now don't ya think?

I said I would be pissed. Which I would as I don't think that would be a good sign. However I would never have voted for a ticket with Palin on it.

It might even go lower as time goes on.

I, too, have heard of the different amounts...

This was a news story for weeks. Numbers have gone from $250K, to $200K, then $150K. Didn't Bill Richardson even mention $125K a week or two ago?

I agree with the earlier post that it is a little to late to question this one.

Did anyone here see the interview and can clarify what was said?
We voted Obama, but I will be PISSED if this is true!
I heard it with my own ears. They're already backtracking BIG time. Liars. I heard last week Obama in one of his last minute ads say everyone below $200,000 would get a big tax cut. $50,000 -- gone just like that, but Biden definitely is using $150,000.

Obama's tax-cut threshold shrinking?

So now Biden is saying those making below $150,000 a year will get a tax cut? - Yahoo! Answers

I'm sorry ...did you hide under a rock!!!! You should have watched fair and balanced news...they had it on there for the last days....so by only wathcing the biased news channels you lost out on the real news and facts.

Didn't you hear that Obama has voted in the past for raising taxes above $ 41 K?
We can tell you, told you so...but it most people will have to live with their choice and what it means for all of us......

Biden said $ 150 K, just like he said Obama would be tested in the first weeks or months.....so we just wait and see....but if you had hoped for the welfare check and all the rest of the hot air promisses, well wake up to reality, most are nice empty words from a person with not much experience...but I'm happy that a person with a mixed racial background can become president in this country...that is most important...FREEDOM!
The bad thing is that his judgment skills are so lousy that he doesn't deserve to be the president just because of that reason.
I couldn't care less what religion, race the person has as long as his past is clean of drugs, and good judgment skills and experience.
