(non)News Flash!

A headline from the Washington Post:

“A majority of Americans would rather see higher taxes on the wealthy before cuts are made to public services such as food safety and border security, according to a survey released Monday by a major federal employee union.”

This is news?

Written another way, “A majority of Americans, most of whom pay little or any federal income tax, would rather see higher taxes on people other than themselves before cuts are made to public services such as food safety and border security, according to a survey released Monday by a major employer of those Americans who would directly benefit (in the form of more jobs) from higher taxes on people other than themselves.

Written even more simply, “Group A would rather see taxes raised on group B enabling group C to provide services to group A using group B’s money.”

Sometimes news isn’t news.
