For the last three months my take home pay has been reduced by 10%.
I make less then 60K per year this is devastating.
My health care cost has increased a great deal for my family as well.
The promises that were made to me during the presidential elections caused me to vote for the president.
Myself and my family was lied to.
This is real money. I can't afford it.
Know I need to apply for food stamps.
Suck it up, man My brother just got Sequestered (so to say). He has a no work day every Friday for at least the next 6 months. That is a 20% hit. We all knew that the temporary withholding holidays for SS and Medicare were going to end at some time. Those things are your payments into SS and Medicare, which I assume you plan on drawing on at some time in the future. We should be making them to help keep the system running.
