Q: I've heard that not all of the tax cut is going directly into the pockets of Texas oil billionaires. Is this true? - Lem B., Dallas, Texas

A:Yes it is, Lem, but as the president pointed out, the tax cut going to regular folks will have to be used to pay for higher gas prices, so while it doesn't go directly to the billionaires, it gets there eventually. Thanks for asking.
 
CORRECTION
A recent article referred, mistakenly, to “the Republican Party Booster Club, Enabling Society & Marching Band.” The correct name of the organization is, “the United States Supreme Court.”
