Trump renews call to ’approve a payroll tax cut’

President Trump on Friday renewed his call for a payroll tax cut amid negotiations between his administration and Congress on a package to address the coronavirus outbreak. ’If you want to get money into the hands of people quickly & efficiently, let them have the full money that they earned, APPROVE A PAYROLL TAX CUT’ Trump tweeted. Bipartisan lawmakers have voiced opposition to the idea.

👌👍 I am ALWAYS in favor of keeping more of my money and giving less to the government. It is the absolute best way to limit the size and power of the government.

Cut it dems. And quit being greedy. Another useless tax to burden the public.

Are they still trying to sell us on payroll tax cuts somehow benefiting workers?

The reason a payroll tax isn't going to work is because this was done before under Barack Obama in 2011 and 2012 and it wasn't that effective in helping during that time and NOW with the coronavirus people are going to be less likely to take that money and spend it on entertainment and traveling. Worst case scenario people may just use the extra money for more panic buying which again will help no one... Congress is instead working on a plan for paid sick leave, free coronavirus testing, and increased unemployment benefits (most likely for anyone with the virus until they recover). All of these measures will not only help the poor people who may have the virus but will also help everyone in general to recover from the virus while they temporarily cannot work due to having the virus. This would be way more effective at containing and handling of the virus.

Trump is a fucking idiot. It should be a relief package not a dam tax cut.

The Dems probably want higher taxes so we need them more. Trump wants to make sure we can afford to survive.

just what we need in a crisis, less money in the hands of emergency health services. 60 of the fortune 500 companies pay ZERO taxes, including Google. THATS where you will find money for welfare, tax those who have benefited most from America's protection.

A payroll tax cut will only help those who have a job and not those who lost their jobs so we're again not helping those that really need help. Wrong move again on the economy.
