Juan Williams in Fox News Sunday's Panel Plus segment said that more than 50% of the Stimulus was tax cuts. Slight problem - he is completely wrong. In this segment he says:
Well most of the stimulus was tax cuts. Most of it was tax cuts.
More than 1/2.
Analysis by WaPo in this info graphic shows that no more than 33% was tax cuts. And in fact Dems played fast and loose with the definition of tax cuts calling some aspects tax cuts such as assistance to unemployed families, financial incentives Medicare/Caid provides to use technology, and health insurance to the unemployed.
