Obama the Big Spender makes Pricey Promises -So says the National Taxpayers Union (NTU)

  • Presidential Candidate
  • John McCain
  • Barack Obama
  • Congressional Spending
  • $8.8 billion
  • $40.5 billion
  • Proposed Spending
  • $6.9 billion
  • $307.2 billion

* NTU Congressional Rating

  • John McCain
  • 88% (A)
  • Barack Obama
  • 5% (Fail)

*The Washington DC- based National Taxpayers Union, a non profit making group which aims to protect private wallets from the government's claws rated both candidates based on his willingness to spend the taxpayers priceless dollars. Here Obama scores just 5% indicating an irresponsible approach to spending. An Obama Presidency will be characterised by rocketing taxation.

John McCain scores an excellent 88% indicating that he is a prudent spender. The natural corollary of this is that a McCain Presidency will be characterised by low taxation.
