One of the weirdest things about this very weird political season is that Republicans are excoriating President Obama for raising taxes. But he didn’t. A big part of the stimulus package was a tax cut for 95% of working families. For our house, it came to about $25 in every paycheck, every two weeks. The sad thing is that most people don’t realize it, and don’t give him credit for it. And so the lies continue to spread.
