They seem to favor Obama more.

The general trend is that they don't like talking about the other candidate. They like specific plans. When Obama's been specific with his step-by-step plans, the charts seem to peak.

This is all I could find on his website. I think it was a fine for large companies that don't offer healthcare:

Quote:
Make employer contributions more fair by requiring large employers that do not offer coverage or make a meaningful contribution to the cost of quality health coverage for their employees to contribute a percentage of payroll toward the costs of their employees health care.

Nice to see McCain doesn't say "Eyerack" and "Eyeran" like Sarah Palin did.

deep, are you just yanking our chains again, as you do so well?

If you're serious, put up an explanation or shut up with the chain-yanking.



PS I still would like to know about the whole "fine" thing, if anyone has info on that. Without knowing details, I would think a lot of people would hear that and go "WHOA. No thank you."

Edit: Oh, interesting. Thanks for finding that, Kelly. That's a LOT different - fining companies as opposed to fining individuals, as McCain claimed? If that's what he was referring to.

Tom Brokaw is a fantastic moderator. I can't help but think about how awesome it would have been to have Tim Russert moderate a debate this year.

Should the U.S. be the world's police?


What are the limits of the constitution?

Iron Horse, I'm reading your Libertarian comments, and I appreciate you throwing them in here. I just don't have anything to say about them.

Didn't want you to think that everyone was just ignoring you.

McCain talking up Iraq is simply not going to help him. The majority of Americans now feel that our going into Iraq was a mistake in the first place, so when McCain starts talking about what a success its been, nobody but the base war supporters are buying it.
