Coming? Or Not?

Those of you who read the drudge report (I don't) may have seen the article they posted entitled "Backdoor Taxes to Hit Middle Class". Dad was telling me that the gist of it is that many tax benefits for the middle class will be allowed to expire.
I went to look up the article and found that it had been pulled by Reuters, the original author, I assume.

Here's what the article says: (typos edited)

According to a Reuters rep, the article was withdrawn "due to significant errors of fact".

"The story was wrong on multiple points and should not have gone out", she emailed us. A formal withdrawal will (be?) issued and will address specific points that were incorrect later today."

The original link lead clickers to an article posted on Monday, Feb. 1 at 4:09 p.m. which reads, in part:

While the administration is focusing its proposal on eliminating tax breaks

for individuals who earn $250,000 a year or more, middle-class families will face a slew of these backdoor increases.

I honestly don't know if this story is true or not, although I suspect that it is. It will be interesting to see if they do actually come back and post an edited version of the article. If it is true, it shows that the liberals have already recovered from their lesson in Massachusetts.

Saw it through debate. Haven't read it yet. But it sure is interesting.

I agree, very interesting. I wonder what kind of strings were pulled in order to get Reuters to pull the article.

Thanks for the comment.
