I came across this on Ace and had to repost it:
Here is the graphic from Recovery.gov:
Wow – that really looks like a lot of tax cutting. Oh – but wait a minute…isn’t this more acurate (corrected graphic ht – Gabriel Malor):
Malor nabs the best part. Notice the asterisk on ‘Tax Relief?” If you click Learn More on Recovery.gov you get this bullet point:
* Tax Relief – includes $15 B for Infrastructure and Science, $61 B for Protecting the Vulnerable, $25 B for Education and Training and $22 B for Energy, so total funds are $126 B for Infrastructure and Science, $142 B for Protecting the Vulnerable, $78 B for Education and Training, and $65 B for Energy.
What?!? So the Tax Relief portion is actually more of the other things…? Ha!
