I was rereading policy positions again between Obama and McCain.
Is anyone else really sick of hearing rhetoric and problem description instead of proposals and the justifications of why they would work?
Anyway, I came across this in McCain's Plan:
John McCain Will Establish Permanent Tax Credit Equal To 10 Percent Of Wages Spent On R&D. This reform will simplify the tax code, reward activity in the U.S., and make us more competitive with other countries. A permanent credit will provide an incentive to innovate and remove uncertainty. At a time when our companies need to be more competitive, we need to provide a permanent incentive to innovate, and remove the uncertainty now hanging over businesses as they make R&D investment decisions
Now, if those are US citizen wages in the United States....(just a minor detail! Whose wages, China's?) this was actually quite shocking for that would be tying a tax incentive to keep high end research jobs in the US (which are going overseas in droves).
What do you think? Did some sane person accidentally sneak in something in his plans without the GOP being aware of it?
