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.
he said himself he would 'see about making it permanent'
then he walked that back via his staff and they said he meant you might not have to pay it back
thing is he can't executive order that part of his plan.
so if you work I advise asking your employer to go ahead and withhold it that way you're not caught short.
