17. No,

"Those who make more than $110,000 a year get a bigger tax cut than those who make less than $20,000 a year...$2,000 is a LOT more than either $145 or $320."

... your point makes no sense. You are railing against an income of $110,000 garnering a tax cut of $2,000 because their payroll tax was cut by 2 percent.

A person earning $50,000 got a tax cut of $1,000. That's how the tax code works.

Now, how much did the person earning $250,000, $500,000 or more get?

Answer: The same damn $2,200 that a person earning $113,000 got because the payroll tax is capped.

Do you think that $2,200 means as much to a person earning $500,000 as $1,000 or $2,000 means to a person earning $50,000 or $100,000, respectively ?
