Harold Meyerson is the kind of liberal I really like, unafraid of embracing a brand of economic populism rooted in the vision of FDR. (I am sure Meyerson and I would disagree about some other issues.) In this morning's Washington Post, Meyerson looks at the one tax cut the GOP does not seem to like, the payroll tax cut. His article reminds us also of the limited veracity of some Tea Party claims that too many poor people don't pay any federal taxes - they pay plenty in taxes, payroll taxes, and sales taxes, even if they don't pay income tax.
