Promises, Promises: A Fiscal Voter Guide to the 2008 Election

  • August 21, 2008

US Budget Watch's report, Promises, Promises: A Fiscal Voter Guide to the 2008 Election, will help voters find their way through the thicket of policy proposals put forward by the Republican candidate for president, Senator John McCain, and the Democratic candidate for president, Senator Barack Obama.

It presents a capsule summary of the candidates' major policy proposals and includes an estimate of the likely fiscal impact of each proposal.

The guide is not intended to express a view for or against either candidate or any specific policy proposal. This report will be followed by other more detailed reports on the candidates' tax and spending proposals.
