Obama supporters shocked,
angry at new tax increases

Washington Times, by Joseph Curl

Original Article

Posted By:NorthernDog, 1/6/2013 10:42:55 PM

Sometimes, watching a Democrat learn something is wonderful, like seeing the family dog finally sit and stay at your command. With President Obama back in office and his life-saving “fiscal cliff” bill jammed through Congress, the new year has brought a surprising turn of events for his sycophantic supporters. “What happened that my Social Security withholding’s in my paycheck just went up?” a poster wrote on the liberal site DemocraticUnderground.com. “My paycheck just went down by an amount that I don’t feel comfortable with. I guarantee this decrease is gonna’ hurt me more than the increase

Comments:
And when will they realize that their remaining dollars will buy less, and less, and less each passing month?

I doubt this is true. If these Obama supporters are anything like my brain-addled sister, they´ll just blame any republican for the bad consequences of anything Obama has done.

Reality will educate them, but they will never admit that they are willfully ignorant morons. Perhaps the slightly less dim will actually question the backwards propaganda TV pounds into their thick skulls. It´s not like this isn´t constantly repeated, from LBJ to Carter to BO.

What is so funny is the Kneepad Media sycophants wanted to end this tax holiday during the last debt limit negotiations. Now that it has happened, not a word from them about how we need everyone to pay for Socialist Security. I fully expect my taxes, my grocery bill, my gas and fuel bills and all other bills to go up. I fully expect the cost of Obambi and the Dems on everything in my life to go up. The only thing that is mildly interesting is the DA Dems that didn´t realize that their world was about to get a lot more expensive.

All the Demon-RATS and NØbama have to say is that it´s the mean old Republicans´ fault, because they wouldn´t raise taxes even more on those evil rich people.

The MSM will fully support what they say.

And, of course, ultimately it just has to be Bush´s fault -- it just HAS to be!!!

And NØbama will smile at them, and show them Moo-chelle´s pretty new spring dress that she might wear to church if they ever go back (not that there is any reason to do that stupid thing again unless Moo-chelle is preparing to run herself), or that she will wear on her next government funded vacation, and all their braindead voters will quicly forget their misery.

We don´t have to wait for the zombie appocolypse, it´s already here. They voted to re-elect NØbama and destroy our nation. Now they just have to start eating brains and the transformation will be complete...

Imagine what would have happened had we gone over the "cliff". That is why some of us reluctantly supported that "least bad" option. Not to worry, however. NerØbama´s supporters are already whining that the just agreed "revenue increases" are not enough, and they want more - just as predicted.

Stay tuned ..

Low-information voters and Democrats.

You see, GOP?

Blame the Democrats for higher taxes, the deficits, and all else since it was they who did this in 2009.

The crazy thing is this is just the tiny bit (2%) that they temporarily stopped taking for Social Security. Depending on income, it is about $20 - $45 for the average person per paycheck. If they think is amount is unacceptable, what will they think about all the other taxes and costs that are coming down the road that are much higher!?!?!?!

When they voted for Obama, they Hoped the negative Change he´d inflict upon the nation would somehow only hurt Republicans. Or that the new normal of lower living standards, a crumbling economy, and curtailed freedoms would somehow be "eco-friendly" - in a warm, fuzzy way - for themselves. However, Democrats are not just naive - they are really, really stupid.

I wonder how these people got paid on the new year this quick.I also heard that payroll processors aren´t ready to impose the new rates yet.I´m kind of suspicious of this story even though it´s the WT.

I´ve been wondering why the glory hound Obama didn´t have a signing ceremony on this.Maybe he wants people to think it just happened and he had nothing to do with it.

The only real way to beat Obama is have the left turn on him.Hopefully this is just the beginning.

No, the 2% tax reinstatement took place already. Payroll should be on top of it. My check was already $44 less. Accounting folks were notified early enough. It is all the other tax increases and such that haven´t hit yet.

My next hope is that they change the tax laws such that state and local taxes are no longer deductible. Dems in high tax NY, NJ, MA, CA will be screaming.
Of course, I won´t like it myself. But seeing NYC Dems get whacked will put a smile on my face.

That these low information dregs had no clue about what was coming is a given. If they look a little closer (which is highly improbable) they will find that the unchanged ´unemployment´ rate is hiding a sharp increase among single women and blacks. Schadenfreude anyone??

Speaking of the South Side, do you think The Won will ever reside there again? I´m sure he was holding his nose the whole time he had to "live" there.

The Obama supporters who pay $0 in taxes (let´s see, is that about 48% of "taxpayers" who file?) won´t even know the difference. The only way they´ll feel The Won´s economic maelstrom is if their benefits are cut. I think the playing field should be leveled, too: if our taxes go up and we net less, so should those living on entitlements.

I just retired, so I won´t have to face the decreased paycheck. That´s not to say I didn´t see this coming.

Back when I was working, however, I worked in a store chock-full of obamabots. It would drive me crazy to have to listen to them during the day.

As to the term "low information voter": the first person I heard using it was Herman Cain.

What is this "low information" baloney other than the demonRAT way to obfuscated how to say, "STUPID." They aren´t, weren´t, won´t be low information voters, they´re lazy, shiftless, greedy RAT voters who want money for everything and for having to do absolutely nothing. And they elected the biggest liar this world has ever seen because he´s their leader in chief. I am exhausted with the new "verbage," low information, and demand that we get it straight: low information is a term that doesn´t exist or mean anything. The word is stupid and its growing.

Low Information is the result. Causes are many. Low Intelligence, Mediocre education, Poor life style choices, Cultural background and as some have pointed out Plain stupidity. We live in a knowledge based society which requires individuals to acquire a minimum ability to seek, extract and assimilate useful information. Lack of this ability by whatever reason leads to voting Democrat. There is nothing wrong with that argument.

I don’t agree that Obama voters are shocked - they won´t really blame President Obama or the Democrats for their dwindling paychecks or lifestyles. Most of them think as a relative does (who said yesterday), "Well, paychecks are going to have less money in them because those Republicans just wouldn’t work with President Obama – he was trying to save us. Republicans only want to save the rich and now the middleman (?!) is going to have to pay. President Bush started all of this and now Republicans are trying to blame President Obama. I really admire him. Everything was such a mess when he took over but he’s been working really hard to try to fix things." She will never, ever change her mind and, in my opinion, the other Obama voters won’t either.

I work with and around many low-information voters in my part-time job. They still have no idea why their paychecks went up.

Yesterday, I heard one say - "It´s because of the whole Fiscal Cliff thing."

Another replied - "Yes, but it will only last two weeks before our checks go back to normal."

-You know how Chris Rock ebonifies when he channels Buckwheat? he takes the ´B´ sound and makes it a ´V´ sound, as in
´Ah´m goin´ down to the barbecue joint and git me some rivs´
Well, now there is a new term for ´Liberals´ or ´Libs´:
´LIVs´ -but it is one of those double entendre deals so loved by the yachting set: ´LIV´ also stands for ´Low Information Voter´.
Keep whinging, Livs. You brought it upon yourselves. Music to an American´s ears.

I also think that if we had any kind of GOP, we´d see a concerted effort to do some PR - why not air some ads that say: Hey, your taxes went up and it is Barry´s fault! But no, we have a party that stumbles along and expects conservatives to support everything they do while trashing conservatives and conservative principles every chance they get.

Just wait. The explanation that will be forthcoming is "the increase in payroll taxes was just a rollback of the temporary reduction. And the increase of revenue is need to keep social security solvent."

So, they Dims will use any form necessary to sooth their low information voters. As stated before, you can´t fix stupid.

And #41, as if Jan.1,1985, all federal employees hired on and after that day DO pay social security taxes. This was a re-do of the retirement system. Today´s system is known as FERS (Federal Employees Retirement System). The old system, that did NOT pay social security was known as CSRS (Civil Service Retirement System)

"Low Information" voters were partially created by a weak and impotent Republican Party which spent a billion and never vetted the largest political and criminal fraud in the history of the world.

I posted this article on CL and the libs won´t touch it. They are usally all attack dog but not on this one. What can they say? "Ok, I´m a deer in the headlights"?

It isn´t so much the money the DC commies want, it´s to crush the middle class. Do a search on Lenin quotes and ask yourself what book must sits on Obama´s, Reid´s, Pelosi´s desk? The Naked Communist perhaps?

There is the low information voter and then there is the ignore all information voter.
I´m sure they will be equally shocked and amazed when they are told to turn over their guns to the guy who comes to their door with an Obama Youth Brigade patch covering his old Acorn patch.

#42 & #60. The "Bless your heart" is exactly what I thought when I heard the Low Information Voter phrase (LIV, good one). It just softens the blow at bit and the recipient is too stupid to know they have been zinged.

The dems are famous for their sound bites. It is time to revive a sound bite from the Clinton era: Tax and Spend Democrats. Any Republican appearing on TV should slip the phrase in even if the discussion is gun control. Use it over, and over, and over again.

I still have my Romney/Ryan bumper sticker on my car. Someone needs to make one to go on the left side of it that says: "Aren´t you sorry you didn´t vote for -".

It´s like all the white people applauding and cheering when Tarantino´s black movie star bragged that the best part about his film role was that he got to kill all the white people. They think the guy was kidding? Same with these Øbama idiots suddenly shocked that their God-man is now shafting them- They just didn´t take seriously what the creep was telling them, straight up, simple. Just like Hitler clearly telling the Germans what he planned to do to them before they voted for him to be Chancellor. "Well, he is probably exaggerating!" they excused. Tyrants must think voters are the absolute dumbest creatures on the planet.

Not one posted remedy has been suggested.
Most tax payers have gotten conned into thinking a tax refund is a gift or failed to note their money was used interest free all year then doled back when forced to do so.
While working we framed withholding as minimum as possible and kept the amount we had to pay when filing at 499 dollars -- just under the limit allowed. That amount divided by 12 was banked for interest which we kept instead.
Now retired we chose to have no taxes withheld on retirement funds. We still pay our taxes in full when filing.
Yes Earned income is an unearned gift that I don´t begrudge the real families in poverty because at least the government isn´t giving that amount to our enemies like hamas and other foreign grabbers.

I hope it hurts you liberal, left leaning imbeciles. You voted for the guy, now live with it. You wanted tax increases for only the "rich" without government spending cuts. Now you´ve got what you wanted. You made the fatal error of believing that Obama and the Dems were only targeting the "rich" to increase their taxes.

Oh come on, I thought Liberals were silly, but I see some silliness here. Every time a Liberal Democrat tries to blame the Republicans all we have to do is quote the one paragraph from this article.

"In 2009, Mr. Obama enacted a “holiday” on the payroll tax deduction from employees’ paychecks, dropping the rate from 6.2 percent to 4.2 percent. But like the holidays, the drop ended December 31st, and like New Year‘s, the revelers woke up the next morning with a massive hangover and a pounding head."

I added the date just to clarify it for the Low IQ´d Democrats.

Remind them had the Republicans won the Senate many of the Tax increases would have been stopped, especially those still to come in Obamacare (that Liberals don´t know about yet). They were blinded (and gullible) to believe that it was only to "Tax the Rich". Will they now admit they were gullible? Of course not. Only Intelligent people recognize when they have been snookered.

New York - In the fall of 2013, I gave a TED talk on what I learned as a progressive, on-air talking head at Fox News, where I worked for two years before leaving and joining my current home, CNN. After all, one of the most frequent questions I was asked during my time at Fox was how I did it, how I was a fox in the henhouse – or a hen in the Fox house, if you will.

London - British police said Tuesday they had intervened after North Korean embassy officials reportedly told a London hairdresser to take down a discount haircuts advert featuring leader Kim Jong-Un. Mo Nabbach said two officials identifying themselves as being from the Stalinist state´s mission took pictures of his M&M Hair Academy in Ealing, west London. They then demanded to know his name and ordered him to remove the "disrespectful" poster from the salon window, he told the Evening Standard newspaper.

KIEV/MOSCOW - Armed separatists took virtual control of a city in eastern Ukraine on Saturday and Kiev prepared troops to deal with what it called an "act of aggression by Russia". Pro-Russian activists carrying automatic weapons seized government buildings in Slaviansk and set up barricades on the outskirts of the city. Official buildings in several neighboring towns were also attacked. The developments have increased concerns of a possible "gas war" that could disrupt energy supplies across the continent. "The Ukrainian authorities consider the events of the day as a display of external aggression from Russia,"

Women’s specialty clothing chain Coldwater Creek filed for bankruptcy on Friday and said it will close all of its stores around the country, including 11 in Minnesota. The Sandpoint, Idaho-based company plans to time its liquidation sales to coincide with the traditionally busy Mother’s Day weekend. Coldwater Creek is the latest retailer to seek protection from creditors as consumers continue to manage their household budgets tightly and hold back on discretionary spending. Others to file for bankruptcy include discount chain Loehmann’s, trendy retailer Dots and the plus-sized Ashley Stewart Holdings. Coldwater Creek announced plans to seek strategic alternatives in October,

Of the plans that states have hatched for the Affordable Care Act, none has been bolder than that of Vermont, which wants to implement a single-payer health-care system, along the lines of what you might find in Britain or Canada. One government-operated system will cover all 620,000 of Vermont’s citizens. The hope is that such a system will allow Vermont to get costs down closer to Canada’s, as well as improve health by coordinating care and ensuring universal coverage. Just two small issues need to be resolved before the state gets to all systems go: First, it needs the federal

LONDON - NATO says tens of thousands of Russian troops are massed on the border with Ukraine for a potential invasion, yet Western states still lack a strategy to stop Moscow from intervening in its former Soviet neighbors. (Snip) Ultimately, Moscow´s commitment to rebuild the former USSR as its own unilateral sphere of influence may outstrip the determination of Washington and its European allies to stop it. Experts say Moscow has been infiltrating its neighbors ever more deeply, building its influence amongst security forces, government officials and politicians. That, some say, allows it to stir up instability in locations like

TMZ reported Thursday that police are in the beginning stages of investigating an alleged incident which TMZ said happened at the Viceroy Hotel in Miami earlier this month.

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead.

A rapid shift to wind and solar power is needed if the world is to avoid catastrophic global warming, the United Nations warns in a crucial report today. Emissions of greenhouse gases need to be cut by up to 70 per cent before 2050 to control climate change, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) says. ‘Large-scale changes in energy systems’ are required, with coal power stations to be switched off and replaced by wind and solar. And the transformation needs to be made in the next 15 years or controlling climate change will become increasingly harder and more expensive. The report was published

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)
