News Flash: $40K now tax free!

Dennis Hastert made the announcement yesterday that, for income earners who make $40K a year of, your life is tax free!! Hooray for Hastert. I hope he moves on this measure soon:
Well, folks, if you earn $40,000 a year and have a family of two, you don't pay any taxes. So you probably, if you don't pay any taxes, you are not going to get a big tax cut. Oh, wait....
Actually, as you probably already surmised, I was kidding. Fat-ass Hastert appears to simply be under the rich man's delusion that people who earn $40K a year don't actually pay taxes. He then uses this bizarre claim to further assert that that is why you, the $40K wage slave, won't get any tax breaks. You see, Hastert is saying, we've got it all worked out. We in Congress know what we're doing.
