President Obama's Plan vs. Senate Republicans' Plan

Impacts on People in Your State and Congressional District
State Fact Sheets and Analyses from Citizens for Tax Justice

With both the Bush tax cuts and President Obama’s expansions of certain parts of those cuts set to expire at the end of 2010, the decisions Congress makes in the coming weeks will have very different effects on taxpayers at different income levels, according to a newly updated report from Citizens for Tax Justice.

The report shows that low- and middle-income taxpayers will pay higher taxes under the Republican plan than under President Obama’s plan. It also shows that the richest taxpayers will pay far less under the Republican plan than under President Obama’s plan.

The report also includes data on the percentage of taxpayers in each state and each Congressional district who are rich enough to lose some portion of the Bush tax cuts under President Obama's plan. It also shows the percentage of taxpayers in each state and district who are millionaires, since most of the revenue savings in Obama's plan would come from millionaires.
