    about "news". So I guess we've changed topics to some degree at least.

    But I hope you're right. It certainly didn't work that way with middle class tax cuts tho. A large proportion of people who actually got federal tax cuts thought that their federal taxes had gone up.

      I can see how that led to confusion. So to clarify my original meaning I guess I'd say "news" does arrive through other media than just the mass media.

      But I could have written with more clarity had I answered you comment with the entire thread open before me. I answered when I opened your reply off my comments page. It is easy to forget exact wording used upthread.

      Very true that. But my hunch is that bills-payers are going to be harder to bamboozle on this issue than with taxes.  Taxes are always taken off the payroll but what portion? Percentages are hard. But $1,000/moth is greater than $400/month? That sort of math is easy, and a reminder comes every 30 days.

      Anyway, I join you in hoping this does indeed come to pass.
