Why is my paycheck less this week? A hashtag reality check for perplexed Obama voters

As Twitchy reported this morning, many uninformed voters were utterly baffled that their first paychecks of 2013 were smaller. After all, the liar in chief swore he wouldn’t raise taxes on the middle class. And he signed the fiscal cliff bill, saving us all from one meal of gruel a day. Or something.

What happened?” one confused left-winger asked. Weren’t we all supposed to be making a hearty meal of The Rich™, garnished with Republican tears? Judging by search engine traffic to Twitchy today, that bewildered class warrior wasn’t the only one searching for answers.

It wasn’t long before #WhyIsMyPaycheckLessThisWeek was trending on Twitter.

Maybe one of Starbucks’ competitors wants to get in early on putting out some related messaging?


So, why all the confusion about slimmer paychecks? One conservative nails it as she does her best imitation of an Obama voter:

Luckily conservatives are givers, as always. They took to Twitter to explain the (unexpected!) change between 2012 and 2013 paychecks.

Hey, the truth hurts.

But are you sure you can believe your lyin’ eyes?

And if your paycheck really is smaller, you know who to blame. C’mon, everybody say it out loud!

Editor’s note: Some readers misinterpreted Twitter user @rachelveronica’s sarcasm. This post has been updated to explicitly state that she is a conservative.

    But Barry is so cool and hip and he has an Ipod and he said it’d be the rich that pay… but, but, but… Now is the time, as it will be for the next four years, to say “I told ya so.”

    • Robert Hoover

      Obama voters are called low information voters for a reason.

      • Roger Jones

        I know the phrase low information voters is popular and true, but I think the bigger problem is misinformed voters. From thinking giving people money for doing nothing stimulates the economy, to thinking the sub-prime disaster was due to Bush policy, to believing that everything would be much better today if Republicans had not gained control of the House, Democrat voters are dangerously misinformed.

        Excellent post!!!!!

      Sure pulled over one on us dummies and got us to pay 2% extra

      • thetreyman

        dont forget your new obamacare taxes too.

      • calhar

        You got it wrong bballron:That was a “temporary” SS withholding tax made under Bush,and was due to be reinstated.This should have never been to begin with.This was to help stimulate a waning economy,but all it did was backfire and “agitate” everyone

        • Larpra

          You got it wrong too Calvin, the SS withholding reduction was all done in 2009 under Obama when the the Dems had control of both the senate and the house. Totally agree though that it never should have been done in the first place.

          • Paul

            Exactly!…the only “payroll tax” that should have been reduced was the Income tax.I would rather have more of my money going into SS and medicare so I’d have something when I get old(er). Too bad they don’t close the back door SS “loophole”. Maybe then it would be insolvent.

    • ra44mr2

      ITs truly the one upside to Obama winning the election, besides a new insult for someone that i see doing something really stupid, “Ah look, Obama voter”

  • GaryTheBrave

    All of this reminds me of Orwell’s “Animal Farm.” “Soak the rich” and “fair share” sound just like “four legs good, two legs bad.”

      Yes, and that was before Snowball and Napoleon learned how to walk on their 2 hind legs.

  • Tommy

    You deserve every bit you’ll reap for being the most misinformed, idiotic and incredibly ignorant pieces of moral decay this world has ever known.

    You hear that? Its the greedy conservatives balling all over the place in hilarity at that sight of liberals finally discovering that indeed, the world is round.

    This is an uplifting sight considering the lefts stupidity brought this about. We tried to stop it, but what do we know, were just greedy racist bigots.

    So hows that ” fair share” looking now you dumb fools. Oh and here is the icing on the cake…………….. Whilst the liberal parasite sucks the life from your paychecks and your well being……………. Obama (your messiah) just gave Congress pay raises.

    So while you lose income, your liberal masters gain income. Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha!!

    • LightSabre


    • Lanell

      No Tommy, Congress votes themselves pay raises. they have that athority which I have always said is BS. The american people should have the vote to decide if they deserve a raise, which in my mind they don’t even deserve minimum wage!.The president dosen’t give it to them..

      • dwsmokin

        Sorry-he just did last week-by Executive Order-his newest and most favorite toy. I guess he’s rewarding Congress, and the Supreme Court, for doing such a stellar job. Heh Heh-at least he has a sense of humor.

    Perhaps you idiots should have a word with the following figments of equal justice that you so moronicly embraced.

    Micheal Moore
    NY Mayor Bloomberg
    Democrats in general
    Sean Penn
    Russel Simmons

    You know, the masters that fed you such obvious deceit. But its not the Democrats in Congress you should blame, no.

    You are at fault for not being intelligent idividuals and for not taking the time to read the small print. You chose to be liberal and all the lies and hypocrisy that comes with it.

        really….so i guess you were the only person in the country whose payroll taxes didn’t go up & your paycheck was more than it was last pay period? you must be busom buddies with your “lord and savior” Obama. Too bad the rest of the country’s hard workers aren’t.

        • Carabella1

          My higher taxes already help the less fortunate, Dimwit. Do you people have to work really hard to be this stupid? Or is it a natural evolution of your party?

          • mike_in_kosovo

            Speaking of ‘dimwit’, maybe you can actually answer Ava’s post instead of making something up to respond to?

          • Carabella1

            Thank you, hon, for validating my statement. I answered the doofus, but you are obviously just as stupid.

          • mike_in_kosovo

            Actually, you’re proving yourself (even more) the doofus, for thinking that my statement validated you. When you have to resort to strawmen to make your point, you’ve obviously already lost the argument.

          • Carabella1

            Fact, cupcake. No straw man here. Do you even know what that is? Obviously not.

          • mike_in_kosovo

            Ava’s post didn’t ask you if your taxes helped the less fortunate. That was your strawman – a misrepresentation of her point of argument.

            And yet again, you show that you should have kept your mouth shut and just let people *think* you an idiot, than opening it and proving the

          • Carabella1

            No, dear. She was whining… Like you.
            You all have your heads up your arses. Pull it out and man up. Help your fellow humans and stop crying about a few bucks. Earn your keep or get out of my country.

          • mike_in_kosovo

            Which does *nothing* to refute my point.

            And you can stuff your “earn your keep or get out of my country” straight up your ass, lady, because I’ll *guarantee* I’ve paid more dues in that regard than you have.

          • Carabella1

            I would take that bet and guarantee that your job at Walmart is not paying your dues. Get an education, get a real job and then talk about dues.

          • mike_in_kosovo

            There’s no Walmart stores in Kosovo, dear – so much for that education you’re (vainly) attempting to brag on. Maybe you should stop while you’re (way, way) behind – I’m sure a high-powered executive like you claim to be can figure out when it’s time to quit digging the hole any deeper.

          • Carabella1

            Ah… so you are’t even a U.S. resident. How interesting that you feel you have the right to spout Reichwing rhetoric that has nothing to do with you.
            So, tell you what, Ginger… When you make enough to pay my mortgage feel free to dictate my actions. Until then, run along. Your opinion isn’t worth a dime.

          • mike_in_kosovo

            Ah… so you aren’t even a U.S. resident

            I’m not residing in the U.S., no… but I *am* a U.S. citizen. For all your bragging, you’re not all that smart, are you?

            How interesting you feel you have the right to spout Reichwing rhetoric that has nothing to do with you.

            As a U.S. citizen, I have as much right to speech as you. And ‘Reichwing’? Lame…but we’d all figured that out about you already, so it’s really no surprise.

            So, tell you what, Ginger… When you make enough to pay my mortgage feel free to dictation my actions.

            I’m already paying 2, myself. How about you “earn your keep or get out of my country”?

          • Carabella1

            Talk about dimwits. You sure do get pissy when your nerve is plucked, Ginger. My family helped found this country while yours were herding goats. I’d say my claim is already staked, Darlin’.

          • mike_in_kosovo

            Talk about dimwits.

            Why does it always have to be about you?

            You sure do get pissy when your nerve is plucked, Ginger.

            Don’t flatter yourself.

            My family helped found this country while yours were herding goats.

            Sure they did… and big whoop; my family met the boat, so *that* doesn’t impress me, either.

            I’d say my claim is already staked, Darlin’.

            See above, re: meeting the boat.

          • Carabella1

            I sincerely doubt it, but nice try, Ginger.

          • mike_in_kosovo

            I really don’t care if you doubt it or not.

          • Sunnie Cravens

            Listen to that! EARN YOUR KEEP! Which is what everyone should be doing. How many times have you handed a co-worker $100 because they needed money and not expect to be repaid? And do you really think that giving Congress a raise is helping our fellow humans? What a nutcase!

          • AMERICAN Kafir™(KAdams)

            From the responses I’ve read from this person, I’d have to guess that they never gave a co-worker one dime when it was needed.

          • AMERICAN Kafir™(KAdams)

            Wow. Talk about unhinged. In one sentence, “Help your fellow humans” and in the next, “Earn your keep or get out of my country”. Which is it, Ms. “I’m such a smrt executive”?

            Make up your mind,you schizoid liberal freak. These two statements are contradictory. If you are FOR giving money to people not earning their keep,you aren’t all that serious about this statement.

            Also,I’ll man up,right after you do. Go sign up for the draft,pre-emptively waive all your alimony and child support payments, get off WIC,and return all the money you got for college because you’re female.

          • disqus_LASIg6epmj

            I normally don’t feed trolls, but if you want to help the less fortunate, you’d be better off to donate to a charity–and research that charity for its efficiency rate. Make sure your $ isn’t mostly going to admin costs, but to the people who actually need it. Also, stats show that conservatives are more charitable than liberals and red states also give more to charities.

          • ProgTrog

            Not the “less fortunate”,specific groups of people,based on their skin color and genital configuration. Not only are you a socialist,but a racist and a sexist as well.

            Oh well,even you will reach a point where your stupidity is cured by a liberal dose of reality,as opposed to a dose of liberal “reality”.

            Everyone can be saved from stupidity. For some it takes seconds, others a lifetime.I’m guessing you’ll burn your hand off before you realize the causal link between the fire you keep sticking your hand into and the pain you keep feeling.

    * Book of Obama: Psalm 666

    The State is my shepherd.
    I shall not want.

    It maketh me to lie down in federally owned pastures.
    It leadeth me beside still waters in banned fishing areas.
    It restoreth my soul through life control from cradle to grave.
    It guideth me unto the path of dependency for its namesake.

    Even though our nation plunges into the valley of the shadow of generations of debt
    I shall fear no evil
    For the Obama is with me.

    Thy Affordable Care Act and 48 Million residents on Food Stamps
    They comfort me.

    You prepare a table of Michelle Obama approved foods before me
    In the presence of my Conservative and Libertarian enemies.

    You anoint my head with hemp oil
    My government approved 16-ounce Slurpee cup runneth over.

    Surely mediocrity and a cemented entitlement mentality shall follow me
    All the days of my life
    And I shall dwell in the HUD house of the Obama
    Forever and ever.


    *(To be recited by children, K-12, every morning of their seven-day school week.**)

    **(Special Note: For union workers teaching their subjects the Book of Obama: Psalm 666 in government schools, it is to be revered and regarded as a Psalm of unsurpassed exquisite beauty. The main tenet is the watchful care that the Government extends over its dependents and the consequent faux assurance that you must make them feel that the State will supply all their needs. The leading thought — the essential idea — is to get gullible selfish Americans to fully believe that Big Government will always provide for them and that they will never be left to want. Ever. Make certain the vapid little basturds get the message, okay?)

        Honey, I work 10 hours a day and earn my money. If you want to view that as “stupid”, you people are dumber than we initially thought. And my “lady parts” don’t vote, but they’re very happy. Thank you for asking.
        Just gave my housekeeper a raise based on your post. I’m betting you’ll be hitting your local bar next. Do you walk from your trailer park? Or do you get your kids to pick up your booze?

        • ajs3176

          Really. I just fired my housekeeper, told her its due to Obama getting reelected, taxes going up, and ObamaTax. I think she understood.

        • hbnolikeee

          Hey Clara Bella, you a clown? You know, Clara Bell the Clown?! So you’re now on your back 10 hours a day. Well with Duh Bumbler care you’ll have your stds paid for so it’s a win win. What’s a little vaginal oozing, yes?

          • Carabella1

            Wow. Reach much? It’s obvious your time working at Denny’s hasn’t given you much in the way of class.
            No, dear. I’m an executive. Try it sometime.
            No… Wait… You can’t. No there there.

          • Marie

            More lies. Assuming all of this nonsense is true, you’re a hypocrite. You’re not supposed to denigrate poor people, you’re supposed to help them – at least, that’s what the media keeps telling me. If you are an executive (doubtful, since executives have better things to do than post on sites like Twitchy), you act just like all the Wall Street goons the occupiers keep protesting.

            As I said – you’re not an executive. Executives usually have better things to do than talk to the poor people they look down upon. Your lies aren’t fooling anyone.

          • AMERICAN Kafir™(KAdams)

            Oh… ‘executive’… like that guy that harassed that poor worker at Chik-Fil-A, huh. Where do you work, so we can inform your boss/shareholders what a stellar job you do of representing your corporation? Oh, I see.

          • $36544368

            LOL…for an executive, you sure as hell can’t put a sentence together very well…”No there there”? You’re an executive? Where? What is it that you do exactly? And I wouldn’t put down people who work at Denny’s…I have a dear friend who has worked there for many years, makes decent money (including tips), and is regarded as an ‘executive’ and also part of management. Also, if you’re going to call someone ‘dear’, the least you could do is capitalize it, since it’s a ‘name’. I think you’re full of s#it. I’m fairly certain that there isn’t anyone who is impressed with your ‘executive’ “title”. I have a Ph.D and have been in ‘executive’ positions through the years, but I don’t go around screaming about it and using it to prove how ‘smart’ or ‘rich’ I am (neither of which I am claiming by stating it here in this post – and Lord knows I’m certainly not rich!). Smart people don’t need to back up their opinions with that kind of nonsense. Smart, classy people don’t need to tell people that they’re smart and classy. Why don’t you ask your housekeeper to refill that glass of ‘whine’ and have your husband give you your meds and pat you on the head. I’m sure they’ll be happy to humor you.

          • AMERICAN Kafir™(KAdams)

            Clarabell is actually a cow, so it fits.

        • Marie

          Okay, assuming that you are telling the truth with this “like, I work 10 hours a day and earn my money” (blow jobs don’t count as work, Carabella), why do you feel it necessary to tell us what to do with OUR hard earned money? We earn our money too, and we don’t want to give it to welfare queens who haven’t done anything to earn it.

          Throw away your money if you must, but leave us the hell out of it. We have better thing to do with our money.

      • beebop1952

        She (if she is a she) is a poser. They think they are precious and cute. If her husband was making a buck and now he gets two, he doubled what he is making. They lie with impunity. It is what they do. Ignore it and it will go back to the huffington where what it poses passes for “intellect.”

      • AMERICAN Kafir™(KAdams)

        No, they ARE the housekeeper.

    • Marie

      Spoken like a greedy 1% bitch. Tell me, Marie Antoinette, is your maid even a legal citizen of this country? Why are you so lazy that you must pay some scumbag from Mexico to scrub your toilets? Are you even paying this person minimum wage?

      So not only are you a liar, you’re a hypocrite as well. Typical.

  • Carabella1

    I’m proud to pay more in taxes. My income… Up 100%. My husband’s income… Up 75%. Our stocks… Up 35%. Life is good.

    • http://twitter.com/AvaMStone Ava Stone

      well, how about sharing all your wealth with the rest of us poor middle class whose paychecks are less now than they were 2 weeks ago because of YOUR president? and I use the word “president” very loosely…

        It’s spelled “rabble”, dear.
        It’s so hard to take you people seriously when you can’t spell a simple word.

        • $36544368

          And you think that bringing your liberal progressive ideas to this website are going to be taken seriously by any of us here? Seriously?

          • Carabella1

            The opposite of progressive is regressive. Don’t like it here? Feel free to move to, oh… say… Afghanistan. I hear their ideology is conservinut-regressive. You people would have a grand time over there.

          • Marie

            Bitch, please. You’re an idiot for wanting to help the lazy, worthless welfare queens of this country.

            Furthermore, the ideology of Afghanistan is nothing like ours. We don’t mutilate the vaginas of little girls – they do. Two can play that game – you can take your Communist ideology and go to North Korea or Cuba, because nobody is taking my money and giving it to some dirt poor welfare queen in Compton. You don’t like that, go to Cuba – they like their lazy welfare queens.

          • $36544368

            I’m betting one of two things – Carabella is either Streetiebird in disguise, or a very well-paid troll….or maybe Sandra Fluke? Nancy Pelosi? Harry Reid? Could be any of those people…hell, maybe even BO himself! I have no idea what this person is attempting to accomplish by coming on this board and showing what an a$$ he/she is. It’s now becoming amusing to read his/her posts…I certainly can’t take anything he/she says seriously or with any respect. I wish I were in a position to live in your fantasy land and not face the truth about Obama’s ‘policies’ like some people who come on this board. Carabella has been reduced to that of a fly who just buzzes around our head…an annoyance, but if you get the fly swatter out and wait for them to land, or if you just wave your hand around to shoo them away, they’ll eventually get tired and stop bugging you…oh, and I love it in America…at the America that I once knew…not the socialist country it is becoming.

  • Ntr

    Liberals remind me of Beavis and Butthead (in terms of intelligence too). Obama is like their ‘Todd’.

    No matter what ‘Todd’ does to use and screw them over, they still think he’s the coolest person ever. They still want to be a part of his “gang” in an effort to be cool by association.

      Have you received your first check of the new year at the higher SS tax rate yet? It will be less, unless A. You aren’t employed (likely). B. You got a raise that offset it. C. You’re hourly, and got enough more hours to offset the tax hike.

      • DrSamHerman

        Dave probably doesn’t receive a paycheck.

        • beebop1952

          Dave is a typical liberal living in a paralell universe where stuff is free and there are no consequences.

        • TexSizzle

          Which is what I implied by “(likely)” after my point A.

    Less money in the paychecks—- didn’t know they taxed welfare checks ————say whut

    • stillinthe60s

      Don’t know about welfare but the government taxes social security income and Bill Clinton put a major hurt on it when he passed his tax bill in his first term. Also overtime, bonuses and kiddies piggy banks. Not sure about the last one but he’s a Democrat.

    • TexSizzle

      They do tax unemployment. I don’t know about welfare, because I’ve been diligent enough never to need it.

    The GOP’s been saying this is coming, look at the man behind the curtain, and for their trouble they’ve been demonized, called names, mocked, etc. Well, now it’s finally shown up in EVERYONE’S check, and it isn’t the last time, not by a long shot. Remeber Obamacare? That train’s rolling down the tracks, and a lot of it will go into effect this year–surprise!

    I’d almost feel sorry for the people who had their heads stuck in the sand like an ostrich, but then, they chose to do so. Perhaps they’ll make a different choice next time, because the chance to make a difference this time has passed, it’s too late.

    Congressional Republicans never liked the payroll tax cut because it didn’t particularly benefit the rich. It’s foolish for Republicans to complain when they get the policy their party prefers, namely the payroll tax going back up. And I agree on this one. It’s more important to fund Social Security than for me to have the extra money in my paycheck.

  • nc

    BHO now has “flexibility.”

    Actually, the “Payroll Tax Holiday” was a stupid Dem “stimulus” idea that was doomed for a bad end, because it HAD to end. Conservatives aren’t thrilled about smaller pay checks but we knew it was coming and, without a Social Security fix, the cut never should have happened in the first place. I think the Dems were hedging their bets in case they lost the election and they figured the raise could be blamed on the Repubs. They’ll still try, but it will be harder now.

      Just wait until it goes up another 6.5 times. 43% Socialist Security Tax plus how much federal income tax and state income tax and other taxes?
