One of our presidential hopes has stated boldly that 95 % of Americans would be getting a federal tax break under his plan. Since only around 70 % of citizens pay taxes, over 20 % of Americans would be getting a tax relief check from the government even though they didn’t pay taxes. Of these 20 % of Americans, I’m assuming 2 % do not watch the news, or follow current events. Half of them, or 1% would not know why they got the check. .07 % of these people who get a check recently forwarded a chain letter.
And… that’s how chain letters work.
