If That Ain’t The Most Soviet Thing…

Guys, check out this screed against a payroll tax cut at CNN.com.

Their awesome points:

  • Trump wants it.
  • Some Republicans and Democrats don’t want it.
  • Some people say it won’t “boost” the economy now.
  • It won’t help people who don’t have jobs.
  • There’s still a virus, and payroll tax cuts can’t change that fact, so there!
  • Some people say direct welfare payments are always preferable to tax cuts.
  • And of course: how are we going to afford all those direct welfare payments if we cut tax revenue?

I tell ya what.
