Many higher income married couples should get a divorce to save some money. These increases take more money out of the hands of private individuals and gives it to our communistic government for social engineering and bribes for votes. Welcome to the continuation of the WELFARE STATES of OBAMA! Any questions?
even with my 1.7% pay increase this year (a tip of the hat to Obama for keeping military pay raises the lowest they've ever been) I'm now making around $1,500 less per year. Oh thats not that much the libs say. Hey it's only a couple of extra car payments, a crap load of groceries, gas, etc etc that I won't be buying with it. It's ok though. I'm cutting off contributions to the economy to make up for it. Cut my lawn treatment service and cut my phone to the bare minimums. Thus taking around $90 a month out of the economy. When I talked with the lawn service guy and he asked why I was cancelling I told him it was nothing he or his company had done but that I'm just trying to make up for lost wages to the government so I was trying to cut the things that I don't really need. He said he had a lot of people calling cancelling for the same reason. Felt bad for the guy. I'm sure he's loving this as well.
You selfish person. Think of all those welfare folks who wouldn't be able to go to the topless joints on their EBT cards without your "contribution."
Don't forget about the welfare cats blowing their money on lottery tickets.
Those folks can spend money like drunken sailors on shore leave.
Wait, that's not fair. Sailors spend their own money...
ha! wouldn't want to keep anyone from the beer and cigarettes either. I guess I should be a better citizen and get back in line. I'm sorry.
List of people who are suddenly complaining about tax increases:
1) General Obamabot: "But...but...I voted for him. He said I wouldn't get a tax increase. Am I in the top 2%?"
2) College kids, just out of school: "Hey, I'm just getting started here. I'm not supposed to be affected."
3) Minimum wage earner: "Huh? How'd I get involved here?"
4) Hollywood idols: "No way man, I just got a subsidy. I can't be part of this group. I work hard for my money."
5) Union rank and file: "My d@mn union dues just went up to pay for the last election and now my paycheck is smaller still? WTF?"
6) Welfare recipient: "Me too? I don't pay social security. Oh, wait, the price of my beer, cigs, and strip club fees just went up? Man, who woulda thunk?"
Obama's economy? Don't forget to give Boehner and McConnell their share of the credit. The Dems certainly won't if anything is perceived to have gone wrong.
Well now, more of the scrubs out there that scream they want people to pay their "fair share" are paying a little more of their fair share. Not nearly enough though. And taxing the rich more is unAmerican and wrong.
Some of us remember when the 4 'mop head' boys from Liverpool became filthy rich capitalists and figured out what was going on. ;-)
"Let me tell you how it will be. There's one for you, nineteen for me.
'Cause I'm the taxman, yeah, I'm the taxman
Should five per cent appear too small. Be thankful I don't take it all.
'Cause I'm the taxman, yeah I'm the taxman
If you drive a car, I'll tax the street, If you try to sit, I'll tax your seat.
If you get too cold I'll tax the heat, If you take a walk, I'll tax your feet.
Don't ask me what I want it for. If you don't want to pay some more.
'Cause I'm the taxman, yeah, I'm the taxman".
I hope all those Obama voters are enjoying what they voted for.Unfortunately the rest of us have to suffer right along side them.
Too bad that our Dem friends never learned about the old rubric that if you want less of something, just put a tax upon it.
I notice that many people on the left are now complaining about all the new taxes they are paying out of their checks. Had they taken a minute to use their iPhones to read ALL of the news, instead of checking up on the MSM talking points, they would have seen that the mighty messiah-in-cheif told them exactly what he was going to do. He SAID that the rich need to pay their fair share. He neglected to mention that by "rich" he meant anyone that has a job and can pay all of their bills without the need of any of his handouts.
I tell people on the left the same thing I tell my 9 & 10 year old- there are consequences for EVERY decision that you make. Push the wrong button and you can be in for a really rough ride. Consequences.
Winston Churchill had this to say about taxes:
"We contend that for a nation to tax itself into prosperity is like a man standing in a bucket and trying to lift himself up by the handle."
Elections DO have consequences. If you don't believe me, just look at the list above. Pity a majority of Americans didn't believe that last November.
Well, I think we cleared about 12 grand last year.... I imagine there's some hidden taxes somewhere that we'll be paying too. But HEY! I've got bark and cactus' and it's worth millions. I'll pay them out of that!
Ba.. now, darn it my fingers want to keep typing a bad word and I'm trying to be a good duck.
You want me to type those bad words for you? It will be my pleasure.
Then you can giggle when you read them and giggle again when you moderate them out. You wanna? I'm game.
Hopefully the payroll tax increase will make ex-Democrats out of lot of people. That is almost a 50% raise in the rate.
Oh, I've tried to explain that on other sites, but they are already taking one for the saint, their response is it wasn't ours in the first place, it's just being adding back in since it was originally 6.2% before the Bush tax cuts. They don't get it! It's our money and most of us will NEVER see it when it comes time to retire.
As more Dems receive layoff notices they won't have to contend with tax increases. The feds will also eventually run out of businesses and corporations to tax because they will either shut down or move to a less taxed country. Then, the freebies will stop and the unemployed will have to find a way to fend for themselves.
This one thing I am sure of; everyone who voted for Obama will rue the day they cast their vote for him. It's inevitable and the only question is how long it will take for my words to come to pass.
Since unemployment gets taxed much like payrolls, when only unemployed people are left, Pelosi will say we need to tax them more to compensate for the lost revenue. She already believes that unemployment is the biggest boon to the economy as it is.
With everybody on unemployment, we will be set just fine (well, at least Pelosi will, anyway).
and it really, REALLY sucks that we have to be dragged down along with them! *glub, glub, glub*
I don't like this "fairness" :(
OY! Mind bleach myMarine is at a premium these days. Good thing I have a secret stash out it the back. Afternoon myMarine! :-)
Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha !!
democRATS thought only Republicans were getting the increases !
