A real paper really wrote this

From the NYT

In addition, Senate Republican leaders would go after “millionaires and billionaires,” not by raising their taxes but by making them ineligible for unemployment compensation and food stamps and increasing their Medicare premiums.”

It’s things like this that make me sign up for yet another semester teaching statistical literacy. The fact that this sentence exists in a paper that is not The Onion is a national disgrace.
