President Obama seems to be undergoing a strange metamorphosis. He's slowly turning into John McCain.
1) Last Thursday, Obama told a group of CEOs he would consider cutting corporate taxes. Candidate McCain was for a corporate tax cut.
2) On Friday, Obama seemed to channel McCain's famous campaign quote that "the fundamentals of the economy are sound." The exact Obama statement: "If we are keeping focused on all the fundamentally sound aspects of our economy, all the outstanding companies, workers, all the innovation, and dynamism in this country, then we're going to get through this."
3) Today the New York Times reports that Obama would be open to taxing employee healthcare benefits to help pay for healthcare reform. McCain proposed the same thing, along with a tax credit to assist workers in purchasing their own health insurance.
Can a capital gains tax cut be far behind?
