McCain Calls For No Taxes On Unemployment Benefits

By  | 

Republican presidential candidate John McCain is proposing that the government eliminate taxes on unemployment benefits.

That's one part of an economic plan the Arizona senator is announcing Tuesday during a campaign swing in Pennsylvania.

McCain also is proposing that taxes be lowered on seniors when they tap their retirement accounts, and he's pushing for an acceleration of the tax write-off for people who are forced to sell at a loss in the current market.

McCain also wants to see capital gains taxes lowered for 2009 and 2010 as an incentive to save and invest.
