"John McCain on Technology:
"Ban Internet Taxes: "We must make a farsighted, robust, and
fervent commitment to innovation and new technologies to sustain
our global competitiveness, meet our national security
"Barack Obama on Technology:
""On research funding in technology, "We can't just focus on
preserving existing industries. We have to be in the business of
encouraging new ones--and that means science, research and
technology. For two centuries, America led the world in innovation.
But this Administration's hostility to science has taken a toll. At
a time when technology is shaping our future, we devote a smaller
and smaller share of our national resources to Research and
Development. I'll double federal funding for basic research, and
make the R&D tax credit permanent.""
