Many of you heard about a story that ran on Reuters yesterday about the coming Middle-Class tax increases. Of course in Washington they don’t call it a tax increase – they are not renewing the Bush Tax Cuts and tax rates will therefore increase when the cuts come to an end – but in Washington, that is not considered raising taxes. The White House, unhappy with the story, asked (or told) Reuters to remove the story. By yesterday evening the story was no longer available. It was replaced with a message saying the story was withdrawn and would be replaced with a new story later in the week.
There are two attachments to this email.
1) a screen shot of the actual story, and
2) a screen shot of what appeared after the story was obediently removed by Reuters
