Whenever President Obama says, "fair share" I vomit in my mouth.—
Kristina (@KrissyK90) January 02, 2013
Now that the wealthy are paying their "fair share" perhaps the press can ask Obama how he's going to pay down the rest of the $16T debt?—

Since Obama was elected the first time, my savings dropped and my expenses have risen..that is fair share?..I lost $5,000 just keeping pace—

So, I guess we'll be hearing about how the 'rich' are still not paying their 'fair share' when Obama gets back from his now $7mil HI vacay.—
Frank McGuigan (@TiTusks) January 02, 2013
Obama "I'm thrilled those greedy millionaires making less than half a mill will now pay their fair share. Excuse me, my jets waiting."—

Heh. Not so amusing? Reality hitting hard.
How can this be? Obama promised!
Some Twitter users are shocked. Only nefarious and dastardly Richy Richies were to be punished!

To start 2013, taxes have gone up!! Therefore (in my case) my 3% raise is all in my head cause my net check for 2013 is LESS than 2012…—

Twitter was once again prescient; stifling of laughter must commence once Obama voters realize just what they voted for when they see their dwindling paychecks.
When you get your first paycheck of 2013 and your net (take home) pay is less than in 2012 don't forget to thank an Obama voter!—

Indeed. More reality, with no sign of unicorn dust and fairy wings in sight.
"77 percent of American households will face higher federal taxes in 2013 under the agreement"—

Two hundred dollars worth of taxes came out of my paycheck for this week. Looks like I worked less than 30 hours a week rather than my 40+.—

Even with the fiscal cliff deal… We still are going to take home less money every month… **table flippage**—
Shady Jones (@TheGrouponDon) January 02, 2013
Raised tax rates. No effect felt here! Pays to not be of the top 2%, eh?… …What? Payroll taxes increase so I'll take home less $? Crap.—
Nabeela (@RealNabz) January 02, 2013
Those payroll taxes going to cut my paycheck a few dollars smh—

So $50 more each check towards taxes instead of your pocket if you make 30K or more. Over $100 if you make 115k each check towards taxes—

More taxes coming out of my check. That sucks.—
Whit Whit (@MsWhitneyParis) January 02, 2013
If you make $40-50K per year, you are going to pay $570 more per year in taxes.—

But, wait, there’s more! Add in the rising health care costs due to Obamacare.
love waking up to higher taxes. This will go along well with my 35% increase in health insurance #2012>2013—
Keith Davidson (@numu350) January 02, 2013
This 1st check of the yr with the new tax changes & more expensive health insurance is not what's up. *side eye to Obama*—

Forward! To smaller paychecks.
