UPDATE: One thing that has been bugging me about this graph is the bottom line. That is an average of the number in the columns above. The problem is that it isn't a weighted average. A weighted average would be much more indicative of who is actually planning to cut more in taxes. If you took these dollar amounts per income range, and then multipled that dollar amount by the number of people there are in that tax bracket (or even the percentage of people in that braket), then I think you'd find that Obama is going to come out ahead on the weighted average, instead of behind as shown on the bottom line of this table.
