Obama / FICA taxes: "how do you like me now?"

(1/19) > >>

TheChronicHotAir:
Notice BOTH Democrat & Reps kept this little secret from America while campaigning.

Both sides said they ONLY want taxes to go up on the extremely rich-- while they reach in Your pockets and take your money.  ;)

Morgan:
The Social Security Program doesn't pay for itself.

Besides, it has always been known that the decrease was a temporary payroll tax holiday used to stimulate the economy.

BucNY:
Both sides are liars. Payroll taxes went up on the 1st and next year families will be taxed if they don't buy/can't buy healthcare. Both taxes hit the middle class, the healthcare tax will primarily hit the middle class.

Morgan:
again,  gotta pay for SS somehow - and middle class members will be the first ones looking for theirs when they turn 62/69.

Chief Joseph:

Gotta pay for SS somehow? What happened to all the money those people payed in for exactly that purpose? Before we fund a new tax to replace those funds, I at least want those **CENSORED**suckers to admit they stole it.

Propping up a Ponzi scheme only gets you deeper in.

Morgan:
I think you answered your own question.

spartan:
Anybody who didn't know this was coming is either ignorant or stupid. Sorry to be blunt but it wasn't exactly a secret.

Second, with all the planned spending and deficits that are coming, the "rich" don't have enough money to pay for it. Therefore either cuts and/or tax increases are coming to all of us eventually. Sad thing is, this doesn't factor in additional spending that will be caused by 'immigration reform" (additional SS, Medicare and Medicaid due to the inevitable amnesty), Obamacare, and Global Warming legislation;

True, but he probably should have left out his promise not to raise taxes $.01 on middle class. Took him a few months to break that promise. I'm not against taxes, but anyone that thinks giving the Government more of our money is going to solve anything is kidding themselves.

BucBalla85:
I think people should be able to choose where their money goes or at least gets to see for themselves what their money is going to. Of course that would never happen.

I don't see the elapse of the FICA payroll holiday as a tax hike. It was always seen as a temporary stimulus for the economy.  A gift.
