The word “earnings” is now inoperative.
You do know how politicians like to change words around .. especially Democrats. In government terms, “spending” has now become “investing.” A “tax” is actually a “penalty.” But there’s a new word out there …. And this is a word-change the GOP should embrace. Your “earnings” are now your “allowance.” That’s right … allowance.
I don’t know, do parent’s still do the allowance thing? Mine lasted through college. But what was your allowance based on? For most kids it was behavior. You do what your parents told you to do – you behaved in a certain way – and you got your full allowance. Transgressions – you ring your brother’s bell with a shot putt, or too much vermouth in your mother’s martini — and there’s a penalty to pay. Your allowance would be cut back.
