Default Re: Trump signs limited executive orders on unemployment

crazy how suddenly democrats don't like executive orders and republicans find themselves in love with them. just a few short years ago they both were on opposite sides of the issue.
this executive order overrides one of the perks of a divided government. the fact when a compromise cannot be reached they do nothing. which is usually a good thing.

now for the payroll tax issue...
it is not going to be abolished.
the permanent idea is to not have to pay back the deferral essentially making it a tax holiday similar to the 2% reduction we got back in 2012. when the payroll tax holiday expired the tax resumed as normal. the same will happen this time. the question is whether or not it will be required to pay it back. as of now it will be.
