NTUF Analyzes Candidates' ProposalsPosted by Brianna Cardiff - January 30, 2008
As the nation heads into Super Tuesday, it is time for many voters to compare and contrast the presidential candidates. NTUF has compiled the data on candidates’ proposals into one location and estimated the potential costs (and savings!) for the plans. Many programs sound great when discussed on the campaign trail, but may not be worth the expense to taxpayers when the cost of all the rhetoric is examined. The results in some cases are surprising (who is the real fiscal conservative when it comes to proposals for the future?). The price of their programs should be an integral part of deciding which candidate should receive your vote.

This is great data! The defense vs. non-defense spending breakdowns are especially enlightening. You can really see the differences between the parties - and the candidates. I love the graphs - they almost tell the whole story by themselves.
