If you aren't paid much, you'll do better under Obama than McCain (here). I know this is all to be taken with a grain of salt, but according to the site's calculator I'll keep between $600 and $1000 per year extra if Obama is elected than I will if McCain is elected. That's before we factor in the increase in taxes if McCain taxes health insurance. (Of course, if health insurance is taxed, chances are your beloved (and not so beloved) contingent faculty are losing their coverage. Financial pressure will likely lead to employers dropping coverage for their employees and the $2500 tax credit I'd get from McCain won't cover a year's worth of health insurance. Borrowing against future paychecks already, that means no health care. I know that I'll have to drop coverage and I know there's lots of folks like me who'll have to do the same.)
The important thing to keep in mind is that if you're pulling down between $227,000 and $603,000 per year OBAMA WANTS TO RAISE YOUR TAXES!!!!!! by $12.
