The Stealth Tax Hike
« on: January 05, 2013, 08:42:07 AM »
And this my friends is coming from the Wall Street Journal.

Mr. Obama purports this is merely "a return to the Clinton-era tax rates." But capital-gains rates will be about three to five percentage points higher than in the 1990s, the Medicare tax is higher, and his stealth tax will raise personal rates higher than advertised. Forget the golden Clinton memories. Mr. Obama is pushing the U.S. back to the Carter era.

The return to the 6.2% Social Security tax was all over the news and was even posted out on our work internet site and still there were so many people shocked that their paychecks were less.  I had to explain to several coworkers what is was and where the difference was shown on their pay stubs.   :blink:  Mentioned to most that I am sure this is just the beginning.   :sad:
Don't waste your time with explanations, people only hear what they want to hear.

If it matters to you, who cares if it matters to anyone else.

Fine! Since Obama is feeling all misty eyed and nostalgic about the Clinton Era, let's go back to the Clinton Era spending levels too!

That's the only reason why Obama and his tit suckers didn't want to go over the "Cliff", but they wanted the taxes to be raised, but not the spending cuts of the Clinton era. John Boehner and his fools fell for it, better yet was on board with it.

Man I wanna curse real bad.... :cursing:    :cursing:    :cursing:
