White House is not considering payroll tax cut

A Washington Post report cited sources at the White House saying the administration was considering a temporary cut to the 6.2% tax to prevent a slowdown. In response, The White House said on Monday that it is not considering an emergency payroll tax cut like the one that Barack Obama instituted in the 2008 financial crisis.

Why?! How about giving tax cuts to actual working people? The taxes are already low for the capital gains earners. Any of you Trumpeteers still think his working for you?

The payroll tax cut would be a huge boneheaded move. It would put a whopping $2.73 a day into the hands of someone making $50,000 a year, that won't even buy you a large coffee, depending on where you live it might buy a whole gallon of gas. It will put more strain on Social Security funding, Medicare and Medicaid and it would increase the defect which is already exploding under Trump and Republican rule.

How about doing away with income tax altogether...and just abolish the Fed and the IRS while we are at it? I guess that would just make to much sense though...go back to watching “keeping up with the Kardashian’s” sheeple.

payroll taxes also include social security taxes, which they have raised over the years. many paid very little but receive a large check and are living longer than expected. http://www.milefoot.com/math/businessmath/taxes/fica.htm

the total payroll tax is 7.65% the employer pays an matching amount. self employed pays both. 50,000 would be about $10 a day. the problem is even if you make only $10,000 a year you pay $700.00 a year.
