Humor. Or something.
John McCain is about to unveil a new economic rescue plan. Key provisions?
As part of a plan to reinvigorate his flagging campaign, Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) is considering additional economic measures aimed directly at the middle class that are likely to be rolled out this week, campaign officials said.
Among the measures being considered are tax cuts – perhaps temporary – for capital gains and dividends, the officials said.
Maybe it's how Politico's writers chose to describe it, and maybe it's how McCain perceives it, but here's a reality check: most people in the middle class aren't making a ton of money off dividends and capital gains. Try again.
