Watching something I never do (CNN) this morning, I was amused by a particular event.

In the normal “news” segment, the anchors were interviewing partisans like Mr. Booker, claiming that taxes were going up for everyone, pretty much, and oh how horrible this would be.

After that segment, with no break in between, they went to the personal finance anchor to talk about what tax moves you need to be making before the end of the year.

What does she lead with? “Well, since in almost everyone’s case, you taxes will be lower next year…….”
