The invisible man

Hey - check out that awesome graphic! Man - Obama is a total jerk. Look how low those tax breaks are for people! He is such a comple....wait a minute. The low is $161,000? What about me? What about 95% of America? What is the differences between the plans across the income board? Let's see the whole table:

Income McCain avg. tax bill Obama avg. tax bill
over $2.9mil -$269,364 +$701,885
$603K-$2.9mil -$45,361 +$115,994
$227K-$603K -$7,871 +$12
$161K-$227K -$4,380 -$2,789
$112K-$161K -$2,614 -$2,204
$66K-$112K -$1,009 -$1,290
$38K-$66K -$319 -$1,042
$19K-$38K -$113 -$892
Under $19K -$19 -$567
