Ezra Klein: The Bush Tax Plan vs. The Obama Tax Plan
Comparing Democratic and Republican tax plans

The Republicans' plan to extend the Bush administration tax cuts for the wealthy would cost $36.6 billion more than the Democrats' plan, which extends cuts only for families making less than $250,000 a year and individuals making less than $200,000.

2. What we get if R's win: more tax cuts for the rich, more deregulation
You know it's true. It's who they are. It's what they do.

Will the Dems use this against the Republicans or cave to those in their own party-- Bayh, Nelson and Conrad? I wish I were more hopeful.
