Comparison of Republican and Democratic tax plans

Comparing Democratic and Republican tax plans

Lori Montgomery of the The Washington Post reports on the difference between the Democratic and Republican tax plans.

The Republicans’ plan to extend the Bush administration tax cuts for the wealthy would cost $36.6 billion more than the Democrats’ plan, which extends cuts only for families making less than $250,000 a year and individuals making less than $200,000.

As you move down the chart, there are relatively small differences, until you hit the bottom. Medium circle. Huge circle.

And while we’re on the topic of telling stories with data, here’s Rachel Maddow providing an interesting explanation of what we’re seeing, along with some context.
