  •  It's a "payroll tax holiday" that's not funded (0+ / 0-)

    by a damned thing but debt.

    •  Nope. Income taxes pay the debt, too. (0+ / 0-)

      So directly or indirectly, it's a payroll tax holiday, putting money directly in the pockets of working men and women, paid for by income taxes that come from the rich.

      I keep asking why this is such a bad thing, and nobody is able to walk me through the eleven dimensional chess game where tax cuts to the poor, paid by the rich, are bad for the poor.

      They weren't, until Obama suggested it.  

      Denounce someone else's lack of courage from safe distance and anonymously!
