The other day, I went to eat at Applebee's and I watched a family of four come in to eat. As they were waiting to be seated, one of the children asked, "Daddy, why are we going out to eat?" His father responded, "Because the President just signed a new tax bill and we're getting a check for 400 dollars for you and you," as he pointed to each of his children's heads. The NY Times just ran a piece on the tax law and how families just above minimum wage will not see this 400 check. So my question is, "Who was asleep at the wheel and allowed poor folks to get cut out too?"
