In a new Center for American Progress Action Fund analysis, Michael Ettlinger documents how much the presidential candidates stand to personally benefit from the McCain and Obama tax proposals. The McCains — who report an annual income of over $6 million — would receive well over $300,000 from John McCain’s tax plan. By contrast, both the Obamas and McCains would receive a substantial, albeit much smaller, savings under Obama’s tax plan:

John and Cindy McCain Barack and Michelle Obama
Savings Under McCain Tax Plan $373,429 $49,329
Savings Under Obama Tax Plan $5,641 $6,124
