I agree that the BLS number will be bullish tomorrow [2016/11/04]. Why was there recently an article from NYT singing the praises of impartiality of the BLS? Seems suspicious to me, who considers BLS nothing but a bunch of cronies.

The payroll taxes are shown. Not really bullish. However the recent rise covers the exact period that will be sampled in the Jobs Report. The subsequent downturn is not in that sample.

Note: this view of the payroll taxes views the [consequences for the] employment scenario. If we targeted the impact on GDP we would get a more bullish picture.
