Where are the Media “Fact Checkers” Now? “calling on Congress to extend middle class tax cuts for those making under $250,000.” How does a proposal that gives an $8000 tax break to those making $500,000 and a $600 tax break to those making $50,000 match this description?

They never should have been enacted in the first place, given the amount we were spending on war. Once this mcguffin is retired, perhaps we can have a legitimate discussion about what tax reforms are needed. Log in to Reply Leave a Reply Cancel replyYou must be logged in to post a comment.
