Sarah Palin made the following comments during her first solo campaign foray in Golden Colorado today (Monday 9/15):

“ Barack Obama wants to raise income taxes and raise payroll taxes and raise investment income taxes and raise business taxes and raise the death tax. But John McCain and I know that’s not the way you grow the economy,” 

Independent groups such as the Tax Policy Center have concluded that four out of five U.S. households would receive tax cuts under Obama’s proposal, which include higher income and payroll taxes only for the wealthiest wage-earners.

She also said she would play a role in an effort to reform government.

“I’ve got another idea that I think Senator McCain likes. In Alaska, we took the state checkbook and put it online, so everyone can see where their money goes. We’re going to bring that kind of openness to Washington,” 

In fact, there already is a searchable database that allows the public to track federal grants and contracts, and Obama was a principle force behind the 2006 law that created it, along with Sen. Tom Coburn, R-Okla.

The Federal Funding Accountability and Transparency Act is one of Obama’s legislative accomplishments.
