Notice the use of snake oil hedge words in the following:
White House spokesman Ari Fleischer said the plan would provide 92 million taxpayers with an average tax cut of $1,083 this year and that a family of four with $39,000 in earnings could save about $1,100.
How many of us have seen advertisements that say we could save up to $100 dollars. Only to find out that that is only the theoretical maximum under circumstances that apply in only 1% of all cases.
