My nice tax increase will show up in your paycheck tomorrow !
THanks for reelecting me, SUKAAAAAAAAHS !!
I see righties complaining about the "surprise" tax hike in their first paycheck of 2013 --
The "payroll tax holiday", meaning 4.2% taxes taken out of your paycheck for SSI instead of 6.2%, DID EXPIRE, so most people who get a paycheck now find it $50 or $60 smaller --
But didn't you notice after the dreaded STIMULUS BILL was passed in 2009 when YOUR PAYCHECK WENT UP BY THE SAME AMOUNT????
This was a TEMPORARY 'stimulus' measure meant to get more $ into the public's hands to keep the economy going, and the 'tax holiday' was extended another two years in Dec 2010.
If you remember, in January 2009, when bush left office, we lost 750,000 jobs that month, and things were pretty bleak.
If you don't like your paycheck suddenly shrinking like it just did, maybe you should be blaming the REPUBLICANS, who during the Fiscal Cliff negotiations fought tooth and nail to keep the "job creators'" taxes from going up 3%, BUT WHO NEVER EVEN MENTIONED that they were letting your Payroll Tax Holiday come to a sudden end!!!
That should show you once and for all who they represent, because it has never been YOU, it's always been the billionaires.
Also note that while YOU pay 6.2% on every dollar up to $110,000, the millionaires and billionaires ALSO pay only up to $110,000 of their income, and the rest of their millions are NOT TAXED for SSI. Sound fair?
Also note that when you turn 65 and no longer have a job, YOU START COLLECTING ALL THIS MONEY BACK AGAIN!!!
So think about that next time you hear about republicans bashing SOCIAL SECURITY.
And next time you hear about tax-and-spend-Democrats, remember that it was OBAMA who gave you this tax gift for FOUR YEARS even though you didn't notice or appreciate it until it went away. And it was the Republicans, who fought to keep it from passing, and who did nothing to extend it last month because they were busy trying to save the millionaires from a federal tax increase.
Sentiment: Strong Buy
chouri, as I am sure you have noticed, it is the anti Obama posters here who regularly butcher the English language, show their bigotry constantly and are in the dark about most things of which they speak.. Simply put, they seem ignorant to most of the things of which they try to sound smart. .
Good thing there are all these MB posters here to put the blame on Obama to ensure no one votes for him again for a thir... oh wait... Sounds like you are doing the Dems a favor by letting BO be the scape goat, so that whoever is next can get elected... just saying...
