Obama Tax Calculator - Not So Accurate

James McTague from Barron's has an article which will appear in tomorrow's print edition. The article shows Obama's fuzzy math just doesn't add up.

Well isn't this a surprise? Of course not, it's just another political gimmick which is rigged to always show you Obama's plan is better.

As the Barron's article points out,
"This isn't a calculator," said the Tax Foundation's Gerald Prante. "This has, like, 72 possible combinations that could change the number it gives you."

Tax code is much more complicated than Obama's campaign would have you believe. Anyone who files something more than just the standard 1040 form knows this already. But Barack wouldn't let something like accuracy get in the way of a good smoke screen.
