I wasn't sure if I should say this for fear of hurting your feelings, but that is a bullshit story. (I am kidding. Thank you.)
This news sure would kill the mood
As we used to say in the news biz, too good to be true. Lot of checking needed before running that one!

That effective tax rate chart was a puzzler to me. It was very difficult for me to believe that the lowest quintile pays anything in their 1040, and in fact, many are getting more in their refund than was withheld because of the EITC. Reading the article closely, I do think that they are including social security withholdings as federal tax. It would be nice if the authors made that a little more clear.
Yes, because they are a tax.
