It makes sense to at least some people. From today’s New York Times:Although the tax is technically split between employers and employees, economists agree that workers suffer the whole cost of the tax. Without it, workers could expect to have higher wages, not just lower taxes.http://www.nytimes.com/2013/04/14/opinion/sunday/payroll-tax...Given that this column is from the Opinion section of the NY Times, that the writer is a law professor, not an economist, and that the writer provides no data to support their statement, I would say that that statement is just as valid as any opinion you can find here on TMF. Cites of some studies where economists actually provide data supporting the statement would have made the statement more believable.AJ
