Obama Camp Responds

Following the McCain campaign's jumping on an interview Joe Biden gave in which he seemed to lower the cap at which people would see a tax increase in an Obama administration, Biden spokesman David Wade responds:

"We have a big choice in this election between tax relief for the middle class or more of the same Bush tax giveaways for Exxon Mobil and the most wealthy corporations. As Senator Obama and Senator Biden have always said, under their plan no family making less than $250,000 will see their taxes increase one cent. And if your family makes less than $200,000 - as 95 percent of workers and their families do - you'll get a tax cut."

"Maybe the McCain campaign keeps lying about Obama's tax plan because with seven days left in this election," Wade continued, "Voters are rejecting McCain's plan to give billions more in tax giveaways to big corporations and the wealthiest Americans - but nothing to more than 100 million middle-class families."

Short version: Biden flubbed it.
