The following quote is from an opinion piece. It caught my eye for two reasons. It’s about Social Security and second it’s a good example of misleading writing. The writer talks about the media being played.
Here’s the real ignorance; no president can make a tax cut permanent. It’s all political bluster.
Take a look at the full article at the link below.
“If victorious on November 3rd,” the president said on Aug. 8th, “I plan to forgive these taxes and make permanent cuts to the payroll tax.” He then added: “I’m going to make them all permanent.” So when Trump talks of a “payroll tax cut,” you might think that sounds great. A tax cut! But this is deceptive election year politics, designed to take advantage of voter ignorance. Anyone in the media that’s going along with Trump’s framing of this as a mere tax cut is also being played.
