Middle-Class Backers Shocked
Obama Raised Their Taxes

Investor´s Business Daily, by Editorial

Original Article

Posted By:earlybird, 1/7/2013 10:25:18 PM

Dyed-blue-in-the-wool supporters of President Obama are blue as can be after opening their paychecks and discovering that "ordinary folks," as the president likes to call them, got slapped with a sizeable tax hike on New Year´s Day. "What happened?" was the exclamation found repeatedly by the Washington Times´ Joseph Curl as he surveyed commentaries posted on liberal websites. "What happened that my Social Security withholding in my paycheck just went up?" a DemocraticUnderground.com post asked. "I guarantee this decrease is gonna hurt me more than the increase in income taxes will hurt those making over 400 grand. What happened?"

Comments:
Joseph Curl´s article was posted here earlier today...

Doesn´t matter one bit. They are motivated by hatred of Republicans. They may realize that the Jackass is a liar at best BUT they will vote for Hillary or some such democrat. They hate Republicans.

They just got a one year 2% reduction on their social security taxes. Now it is back on so there were no taxes raised but that the 2% reduction expired. Of course, if you are a lib, you think you are entitled.

Will these same people now admit that the Bush "tax cuts for the rich" were actually beneficial to everyone, not only the rich, as we´ve been hearing and hearing and hearing for the past many years. The media didn´t hype the wide-spread tax cuts when they were provided by the Bush administration, but now that they have disappeared, the public does finally notice. Who will they blame? Most likely President Bush for not making them permanent in the first place.

Over the holidays, a brilliant young man was among our visitors. He was shocked that the rise in Social Security withholding is going to cost him and his new wife over $1,500 this year.

He looked surprised when I pointed out that the lower rate was temporary, and he should never have expected it to be permanent. He said he voted for Obama (twice) because he expected him to help the middle-class.

I said, you have a lot to learn, and this is a good first lesson. Politicians lie.

What happened to all those Dems and lefties who kept saying that they would ba happy to pay more taxes and that thought we don´t get taxed enough??? I remember reading all sorts of comments like that on various news sites in the comments area. Were they all lying? Or were they kidding themselves? Either way, it is clear that what they thought was ideal doesn´t jibe with reality.

Social Security is supposed to be "paid for" by withholding funds from our paychecks. It was a stupid idea to "suspend" collection of this money in the first place, especially with Social Security on its way to collapse.

What is sad to me is that there are SO many Americans who believe now they should get something for nothing. They shouldn´t have to pay for their benefits--make someone else do it.

I really, really dislike this taking such a hold in my beloved country.

I still think these people are a bunch of trolls,trying to gin up a movement to pressure Obama into lowering the rates again. For one thing most employers hold a week back,so they haven´t seen a new year´s check yet.

We´ll find out in a couple of weeks when Obama wants to slip it back in the debt ceiling debate.

The government is crazy the way it works anyway. For years they raided SS for normal spending,last year they had to raid the normal budget to pay for this tax cut and more people getting on disability.I´m glad I´m not a government accountant or the smoke from my brain would set the detector off.

Several people came to me with questions and didn´t have any idea the tax was increasing - I asked them if they were aware they must be part of the 2%!!!

That´s what the Liberals get for listening to the Anti American News stations such as CNN/MSNBC/ABC/CBS/NBC. These stations truly believe that Liberals are gullible and Low IQ´d and will never do their homework to learn the truth.

While I think it is funny that the dems are so stupid, the "payroll tax holiday" was a lousy idea to begin with. It took a program already in serious financial trouble and made it even worse. Do these dopes think their Social Security retirement comes for free? THEY are supposed to pay for it. If they were fiscally responsible people, they would save and invest on their own and be FAR better off than letting the goobermint mismanage their retirement. But they are not, as their comments show. Thus Social Security was born, to enforce retirement savings for fiscal incompetents and because the government is running it, of course it became a disaster.

BO delivers nothing but pain to the middle class and the majority of them are too dumb to figure it out. We get the government we deserve.

You think they would have learned by now that working people eventually have to pay for the votes of parasites. They´ve been multiplying, you see. Sheesh, people, you got rolled and more is coming!

There aren´t enough rich people for EVERYONE to ride on their backs, and virtually all parasites vote Dem, so they take priority. Too many working people vote Republican, so why help them out by making welfare recipients work, and kicking able-bodied people out of SSI benefits?

I encounter many low-informed voters in my job and heard two discussing this over the weekend.

"It´s because of that whole fiscal cliff thing," said one.

"Yes, but it will only last two weeks," another replied. "Then, our checks will go back to normal."

These taxes on the rich or anybody else are so unnecessary. Scrap the SS fica taxes completely. Scrap the income tax. Send out trillions to all the pension funds to make them good and while you are at it establish generous pension funds for all the non union, non public sector citizens and any illegal aliens who come along. Throw in free medical care for all. Just mint the magical Trillion dollar platinum coins with Obama on the face of it by the hundreds and deposit them in the treasury./s

Unless there are modifications to entitlement programs, they will soon consume two thirds of the federal budget. Imagine if your FICA withholding was twice the federal income tax withholding.

A neighbor, who is self employed, is actually under the delusion there is nothing wrong with Social Security that taxing more of those greedy Republican millionaire Northern bankers won´t cure. I tried to point out to him that Wall Street has been Democrat for some time now but he know what he knows and can´t be convinced the Democrats are no longer the friend of the working man and woman.

I was going to say what #24 said. There never should have been a cut in SS withholding. The program is almost underwater anyway, and this was a brain p))t of 0bama´s.

It will take more than this to make Dhims understand that 0bama is to blame for his own policies.

I have a cousin who is a dyed-in-the-wool 0bamabot. NOTHING will change her mind that it´s Bush´s fault. She´s Bob Beckel in drag. She and her husband both work, but they don´t mind sitting on the front porch without a/c in GA in the summer. We do!

The 10 year lie that the Bush tax was for the rich. And regular folk got nothing should have been apparent. But if GOP had let things go over the cliff, the we would have paid the Clinton tax. We all remember how the Clinton years were nirvana. So let the Rat lemmings pay Clinton tax for a year.
They would beg for the Bush tax cuts.

The amazing thing is the dems are just getting started. They are going to start trying to get more off the so called rich, but it will have hidden taxes on everybody. If you work for a living I don´t know how you can vote dem.
By the way a few years ago when Sen Laughtenberger from NJ was asked to define rich he said a couple making 75K a year reached that mark. This is the thinking of many dems in congress.

I´ve heard a whole lotta cry-babying this past week in the Peoples´ Republik of Konnectikut about shrunken paychecks; the bakery lady in the supermarket, the cashier at the gas station window, the receptionist in the insurance office. Living here, you know they all voted for 0bama. When they finish belly-aching, I reply,´´Oh yes, it´s just terrible. But if you think this is bad, just take a good look at your paycheck in January 2014 when your FREE 0bamacare kicks in. But, say. Didya see those dreamy pictures of our president´s $7million Christmas getaway in Hawaii?´´ They look back at me like a deer caught in the headlights. Idjits.

I remember when people were embarrassed, humiliated and horrified to find themselves in need of alms. Now there are so many with their hands out shouting gimmee, gimmee, gimmee, that I am embarrassed, humiliated and horrified for them.

A few ways to have fun with these libs...


In a sympathetic yet condescending voice, say, "Now, do you really need that money?"

Or...
"The higher deductions will help the government get badly needed revenue."

And finaly, "We all need to pay our fair share."

The middle class is where the most money to tax comes from. There arn´t enough "rich" to tax to get enough money for the government to give the 40 plus persent all there free stuff.

The Ah-Ha moment has arrived. Progressives hate all Americans. Middle class especially. So not just because you might be a pubbie, an independent...you are hated by 0bama et al and you must have your nose rubbed in their manure pile. They HATE us. I wonder what my dear brother thinks...oh I forgot. He´s got several fed retirement funds...I think. Lets see. FAA, Coast Guard. Oh heck. Poor 0bama babies...smaller paycheck. HA.

Maybe before it´s over, they´ll get around to taxing that half of the country that doesn´t pay any tax and freeloads off the rest of us. Then you´ll really hear some squallin´.

Two consequences of the payroll 1-year two percent holiday that went over lib heads. First, the 2 percent had to be taken from general revenue to make up any shortfall to pay SS. And, final SS computations are based on amount paid in. Two percent less for a year will lower the final calculation, thus lowering SS payments upon retirement. Doh! Who saw that?

These are the same folks that were so thrilled that Obama was going to stick it to the "rich" that they voted for him. This is what they deserve for the sin of envy and being stupid, stupid, STUPID!

The shame is that all of us are paying for it.

The saying goes, "Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice shame on me". I wonder if the American people will now wise up to the charlatan that Obama is. He talks as if he were concerned about the poor but he lives like a Mary Antoinette with his million dollar vacations. I wonder if he knows that judgment is coming for him.

The problem we have is that the average person in this country is very ill informed. Frankly, if you read your local newspaper daily and listened to network news you´d be ill informed too.

I learned a long time ago that leftists are what I like to call explicitly deceitful. They´ll make a big point about "income" taxes not going up on the middle class, all the while knowing that the SS taxes were going to go up. It´s the same way they play the game about rich people and tax rates. So what if the tax rate goes up on the wealthiest Americans? Most of them aren´t drawing "income" so the income tax doesn´t affect them. My husband used to work for an accounting firm whose business was handling rich people´s money. They´d have envelopes of cash delivered to their homes or offices, and all of their bills would go to the accountants to be paid. Some of these people only looked at their financials a couple of times a year and paid very little in taxes.

What I´m waiting for is the shock when people who think they´re going to be getting free medical care find out that they´re going to be paying a lot more for a lot less. I can´t tell you how many people I know who actually are looking forward to 2014 because they think they´ll have a lot of extra money when they no longer have to pay their healthcare copays. I´ve tried to tell them the truth, but they think I´m just lying to them because I´m a Republican. I wonder how many of them will admit I was right?

A Nebraska toddler had his eye on the prize when he slipped out of his home and wound up inside a claw machine at a nearby arcade. Ashley Ireland had called police and begun a frantic search for her son, Kael, after he went missing from her apartment on Monday afternoon. The three-year-old had managed to open the front door and walk to the nearby amusement arcade, where he was found playing with stuffed toys inside one of the machines. Scroll down for video Kael´s antics had caught the attention of a group of customers in Madsen´s Bowling and Billiards in Lincoln, who

KUALA LUMPUR: A CREW member of Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 made a desperate call from his mobile phone as the plane was flying low near Penang, the morning it went missing. The latest breakthrough in the ongoing criminal investigation traced the source of the call to co-pilot Fariq Abdul Hamid´s phone.

Obama Lets N.S.A. Exploit
Some Internet Flaws, Officials Say

WASHINGTON — Stepping into a heated debate within the nation’s intelligence agencies, President Obama has decided that when the National Security Agency discovers major flaws in Internet security, it should — in most circumstances — reveal them to assure that they will be fixed, rather than keep mum so that the flaws can be used in espionage or cyberattacks, senior administration officials said Saturday. But Mr. Obama carved a broad exception for “a clear national security or law enforcement need,” the officials said, a loophole that is likely to allow the N.S.A. to continue to exploit security flaws both to crack

LAS VEGAS -- The Bureau of Land Management has announced it will stop the roundup of cattle owned by rancher Cliven Bundy. The BLM says the animals have been illegally grazing on public lands for 20 years. The BLM made the announcement Saturday morning, a week after rangers started gathering the animals from land near Gold Butte. The agency says it is concerned about the safety of its employees and the public. Earlier this week, BLM officers and supporters of the Bundy family were involved in a scuffle. Cliven Bundy´s son, Ammon Bundy, was tased twice by federal agents. Another woman said

In a profile of Press Secretary Jay Carney appearing in the magazine Washingtonian Mom, this photo of the loving family appears:(Snip for photo)Cute, isn’t it? But, as savvy Twitter users noticed almost immediately, the picture is photoshopped, and not very well at that. The right side of the book case is a mirror image of the left, which poses a slight problem. A problem I like to call “disembodied finger of a child floating in air”! It’s a common photoshop mistake:

ORLAND, Calif. – A tractor-trailer already was on fire as it came across a median and crashed into a tour bus, killing 10 people, according to a couple whose car was sideswiped by the big rig. Joe and Bonnie Duran were driving a sedan northbound on the 5 Freeway on Thursday when they said a FedEx truck heading south careened toward them, struck their rental car and crashed into the oncoming bus carrying high school students from Southern California.

The teens responsible for the mob violence in downtown Louisville last month were members of a gang of middle-school students, according to an FBI memo distributed to law enforcement agencies. The memo, which the FBI says was based on "unverified intelligence," says that the gang — "Young ´N Off That," or YNO, was organized last summer at Frost Middle School but spread to other schools, and that its members are "armed in a major way." The FBI memo also says there have been "rumblings" about the gang showing up in large numbers May 1 at the Kentucky Derby Festival Pegasus Parade. Louisville

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes. Connery just has to show up on time. In economics you devalue a currency by printing too much of it. In film you
