2. too bad he's also endorsing trickle down

Krugman "The various tax cuts aimed at raising workers’ after-tax income and encouraging hiring and investing..."

That part of the "Jobs act" actually passed. The accursed payroll tax cut DID get extended for a year. Obama proposed making it even bigger and that didn't happen (thankfully).

I am surprised the dumb thing is not STILL with us.

12.1% of the payroll tax cut goes to those in the bottom 40%
26.7% of the payroll tax cut goes to those in the top 10%

27.1% goes to those in the bottom 60%
46.4% goes to those in the top 20%
