What a laugh I had today..

As I got to see a ton of the Obama sycophants at work go bonkers about their paychecks being lighter despite the fact taxes were only going up on the evil rich. This seems to have been a common occurrence for the day.

This mentally disturbed lefty chick at work was practically in tears because the new taxes had taken away all her credit card paying money. How was she going to make the minimum payments on that maxed out credit card now? Why didn’t anyone tell her this was going to happen? She pretended not to hear me when told her that “Teh WON!” had backstabbed her. She got mad when I pointed out that the media had known this all along and had simply ignored it to cover for Obama. And that when people like me pointed out the taxes where going up, we where accused of lying. She was ready to commit murder when I remarked that her credit card comment made it clearer to me why she supported these Keynesian morons and they in turn believed they could just keep spending money we didn’t have as well. You should have seen her eyes bulge out when I pointed out that Team Blue was not done raising taxes on everyone.

I got hit myself, of course, but then again. I was aware it was coming and prepared. Don’t worry Obama supporters. Pelosi, Reid and Obama already told us they had more tax hikes coming too. Enjoy.

    I won’t know how much lighter my paycheck is for a couple weeks (paid once a month), but my wife has already felt the pinch.

    I’m amazed that I keep hearing people complain that “only the rich” were supposed to get hit. Don’t they pay attention at all?

    Exactly.

    Under the bipartisan fiscal cliff bill, the payroll tax cut was allowed to expire. President Barack Obama had originally asked for the payroll tax cut to be extended, but Congressional Republicans opposed the measure which served as a fiscal stimulus.

    Now, I happen to agree with allowing this cut to expire. But, trying to lay the blame entirely on one side or the other is pretty disingenuous at the least. In fact, it could be cited as an example of bipartisanship.

    Yeah, because it would’ve been better to continue to deliberately keep underfunding an already destined to fail program, and adding even more to our deficits, instead of letting a (not payed for) “payroll tax holiday” to expire. Whatever Sally…

    I think that was actually a smart move on those who pushed for it because the reaction you’re seeing now is what was needed. People need to see that everyone is going to have to pay (eventually) to dig us out of this mess. It’d be far better for less pain now that a LOT more pain later if we keep kicking the can down the road too.

    Miggy:

    What part of my saying “I agree with letting these cuts expire” didn’t you understand?

    And as a side note – this one hits me harder than most seeing as I am self employed. But I understand that if i ever expect to get anything out of the system – I have to contribute into the system.

    I got hit by a second punch from the Fed. In addition to the payroll tax, my health insurance premiums went up by about 20%. Yay Obamacare.
