Happy New Year and happy payday! Thank goodness our “lord and savior” Obama signed the fiscal cliff bill into law after proudly proclaiming, “Under this law, more than 98 percent of Americans and 97 percent of small businesses will not see their income taxes go up.”

Promises, promises.

While PolitiFact will likely rate Obama’s statement “Mostly Swoon,” around 70 percent of Americans are going to pay more taxes in 2013. If you like your payroll taxes (and even if you don’t), you can keep them and pay two percent more than you did in 2012.

Earlier this week, many Americans realized the “fair share” fiscal cliff deal didn’t seem so fair. One Democratic Underground commenter was a little behind yesterday and was shocked — shocked! — to learn that the fiscal cliff crapwich didn’t extend the payroll tax holiday. (They don’t call ’em DUmmies for nothing.)

“What happened?” he asked. “My paycheck just went down by an amount that I don’t feel comfortable with. I guarantee this decrease will hurt me more than the increase in income taxes will hurt those making over $400,000.”

How’s that class warfare working out for ya, pal?

Yep, elections have consequences, and here’s how all those cries of “Eat the rich!” are working out:

As the first pay period of 2013 comes to a close, employers are being forced to ring in the new year by explaining why their employees’ checks are smaller.

Indeed, some employees are baffled by their shrinking paychecks.

American workers are feeling the pain, and it’s definitely not just the rich.

And you know whose fault that is, right?

Of course. But there may be one silver lining in all of this:

Update:

It seems many more Americans are simply baffled by the change in their paychecks.

How many voted their way to a smaller paycheck?

Update:

#WhyIsMyPaycheckLessThisWeek trended on Twitter Friday as helpful conservatives explained the whole “elections have consequences” thing to bewildered Obama voters.

They were rich and “famous” in Hollywood, then some TV exec decided to give them all a reality show and now they are truly “famous”. haha. Only in America. What saddens me is that when I go to Europe, the majority of their TV shows imported from US are reality shows, so “Keeping up with the Kardashians”, “Jersey Shore”, and “The Real Housewives of Wherever” are how they see Americans portrayed. It is sad.

            Hey moron, this was something republicans insisted on during the fiscal cliff negotiations. Now the GOP has the balls to blame the president? Typical GOP hypocrisy. It was either let the 2009 PAYROLL HOLIDAY that the GOP HATED, when it was passed or take away the child, school, and personal tax deductions from income tax refunds. Do you really think democrats wanted to remove the payroll tax cut THEY PASSED IN 09? Bunch of stupid republicans talking shit like always. Give us a democratic house & you’ll get that tax cut again in 14.

          • RightWingPooFlinger

            idiot… it’s a Social Security increase, not an income tax increase. It’s all Obama’s. Retard. Still blaming everyone but your milk chocolate messiah, huh?

          • Ethel Arauz

            MORON, the social security increase IS THE PAYROLL TAX HOLIDAY that was passed in 2009. Get a paycheck from 08and you’ll see it’s the same percentage increase as it is now. The GOP hated that deduction now you republicans are hating that it was taken away. Wow, guess you loved that extra money thanks to ” the messiah” you racist twit…. Know what you are talking about before looking like a complete ignoramus.

            That shield disappeared long ago only the ObamAsses didn’t get the memo.

          • Catchance

            Ethel, the social security payroll tax break was passed in 2011, meant to go for one year, and was extended at the end of 2011 to go into 2012. It was never meant to be permanent, only to give people a break while the economy “got going” again. The tax cuts passed under George W. Bush (which liberals yelled and screamed about, saying they were only “for the rich”) also had sunset provisions, meant to end in 2010, and they were extended last year again, into 2012. They’re extended again except for people making over $400,000, but the tax brackets are permanently indexed to inflation. And, boy, are we going to have some inflation! In addition, there are many “hidden” taxes in ObamaCare. The ones screaming now about the cut in their paychecks apparently weren’t working in 2010, so they didn’t realize that they’ve had an artificial break for 2 years.

          • Rachel

            Inflation…another name for one big TAX. As the costs of all goods and services go up to cover the increased costs of businesses. Did these D emocrat voters REALLY think they were going to get a free ride? Didn’t their parents ever teach them there is “no such thing as a free lunch”? Someone always pays…and it’s usually the people who can least afford it. Morons.

          • Keith McRae

            It was a democrat bill, passed with three minutes notice by a democrat senate, and pushed through the house shockingly. The house bills sent to the senate which had zero tax increases, and solid spending cuts were ignored because Reid is a partisan hack who won’t touch a republican bill even if it’s good.

          • Biggus_Footus

            Tax legislation MUST originate in the House of Representatives (Article I, Section 7 of the Constitution). If this one or any other started out in the Senate, there’s room for a constitutional challenge.

          • Keith McRae

            The AMT is not the Bush tax cuts. It is a Democrat passed bill from when they controlled the House and Senate to prevent the rich from escaping taxes through deductions. With inflation, the middle class now gets caught too. But of course, it is Bush’s fault. Right.

          • http://twitter.com/DerekMurphy_007 Derek Murphy

            and the AMT premise was the same as the current notion of trying to peg what “rich” is… believe me in 10 years $250K or even $400K will be middle class, maybe sooner if interest rates go up and explode the interest on the Debt and release the dogs of inflation once again

            That is not correct the AMT is the Bush Tax cut, had it not been extended this would have happened:
            “Based on figures from the CBO and Joint Committee on Taxation, federal taxes would have increased by a total of $423 billion in 2013, if the tax cuts had been allowed to expire.[56] The non-partisan Tax Policy Center estimated that for 83% of households in the U.S., there would be an average tax increase of $3,701[58] and The Heritage Foundation stated that those impacted by the tax cut expiry are primarily in the middle- and low-income groups, with its research finding that families would experience an average tax increase of $4,138.[59]”

            That is why Pelosi is now insisting more Revenue is required, the leeches are coming after you, the uneducated, uninformed masses.

            Do you even know what the payroll tax is for? It funds Social Security, that’s it. Those who opposed the tax “holiday” did so because they knew that passing it would result in Social Security going bankrupt sooner than it would without the “holiday”.

            Do your homework. Better yet study your history. Republicans always favored lowering taxes while democrats always wanted to raise taxes. Today it is for the rich, next it will be for the middle class. If democrats have it their way, we will all be paying lot more taxes while the government gets bigger and bigger. And soon 80% of the population will be working for the government while everyone pays 60% income taxes, 20% social security taxes and 10% national labor union dues. You dumb ass!

          • redheadgrl

            Ethel, why do you think the SS payroll tax is a good idea in the first place? Why not just decrease regular income tax 2%? And, if the D party thought the “holiday” was so great, why didn’t they make it permanent instead of expiring at the end of each year? If you support SS for perpetuity, then you have to agree that the 2% decrease “holiday” isn’t such a good idea since SS is underfunded as it is.

            However, if you think about it, everyone pays payroll taxes, but not everyone pays income tax due to deductions/earned income credits/child credits. So with payroll taxes, everyone is really “paying their fair share”. Which is the mantra I hear from Mr. Obama and high-ranking Ds in Congress. So isn’t the end of the “holiday” really a good thing?

          • thetreyman

            if we get a dem house again then they will raise taxes on everyone. they have already alluded to it. face it, marxists have never seen a tax they didnt like. the repubs wanted to keep everything like it was last year, even the 2% PTH, because lets face it, the republicans have never seen a tax they like.

            Um, Moron, The democrats controlled the House and Senate when they voted to UNDERFUND the Social Security trust that they already were robbing. They won’t cut spending or special project payouts to their cronies so they have to put it back on you and me. If the payroll tax “holiday” comes back who will you be blaming when your social security payments are less??? Hmmmmm???? Even at 15% (like those of us who are self-employed pay…1/2 of yours is paid by your employer) it’s not enough to keep SS funded. Stop the blaming, stop the spending. It’s that simple.

            That tax cut was a temporary tax holiday, not a permanent one. They extended it once, now it’s time to pay the piper. I hope you are enjoying your ‘vote for revenge’ because I sure am. Karma sucks, doesn’t it?

            Ethel Arauz–you are the moron. Don’t you know the GOP resisted all of this? The dems crammed it down Republicans throats at the last moment because they believed our payroll tax vacation was over because our economy had “recovered” enough, while Obama’s $4mm taxpayer funded Hawaiian vacation isn’t over. Obama was arrogantly holding all of the cards. The GOP didn’t want any tax increase for middle-class America.This is what you, and the other ‘low information people” voted for!

      Actually your completley wrong. In December 2010, as part of the legislation that extended the Bush tax cuts (called the Tax Relief, Unemployment Insurance Reauthorization, and Job Creation Act of 2010, the government negotiated a temporary, one-year reduction in the FICA payroll tax. In February 2012, the tax cut was extended for another year. However, it was NOT extended for 2013. Which is why it “went up” to Pre 2010 levels.

      • Ariadnea

        Why was it not extended? Could it be because Obama is spending too much and he needs somebody to pay for his habit?

        • journogal

      • o0Nighthawk0o

        No, I’m not. I understand that this reduction in take home was coming but Mr. Bronco said during his campaign that taxes would NOT increase for the middle class.

        Considering the very dismal, abysmal economy of your lord and savior, it

      He was in such a hurry to get back to Hawaii that he did not even sign the bill. The autopen did it for him. On the other hand he can now “honestly” say he did not sign that bill. I understand it only cost us (taxpayers) a little bit for him to come back to DC so he could say he was being serious about the fiscal cliff. I hear the little bit cost was in the neighborhood of $7,000,000. We need more taxes to run the government obviously.

          Good point. What I’ve seen from these “green” companies that received stimulus money is they would blow huge amounts of money to build these huge high tech plants and offices, instead of, as most businesses are forced to do, start small and build bigger as the work comes in. When the taxpayer is subsidizing all your initial startup costs, overhead, salaries, etc and there is literally no risk for the owners of the company (since they haven’t risked their money), they could care less if they rely on fairy dust because hey, its not their money.

    The retirement of the 2% cut in Social Security taxes is the tip of the Iceberg. It seems the liberal voters only understand direct taxes. The taxes imposed on medical activity to fund Obamacare kick in NOW, wait until these folks see the escalation in prices – then listen to the explanation and complain that it isn’t fair to pass the increases along to the public. And how about all of those that work for employers in the vicinity of 50 employees or somewhat more? The number of people currently working full time that will become the number of people working part time will be astounding. Imagine what that does to the prospect of buying a house or a car? How about all those jobs that won’t be needed, but they’ll need your tax dollars for unemployment!

    • winoceros

      Nope. Everyone knew tax holiday could end. But the point is “Mr. No Middle Class Tax Increases Not One Dime” has now changed his Parseltongue to “income” tax instead of just tax. He and Harry Reid could easily have dropped base rates 2% in the proposed legislation, but didn’t. Why is that, I wonder?

    • SirIzakNuton

      It was never his “tax break”, it was Bush’s. And, IMHO, there is no such thing as a so-called “tax break”. If one is paying more, it is a tax increase…if less, then it is a decrease. Tax breaks imply that the government rules us, instead of the other way around. Oh, wait……..

      Its not a tax increase. They lowered it for ONE year in 2011. Then they extended it in 2012. Now its over. Get over it. Did anyone complain when their paycheck got higher the last 2 years??

    • marinemb1

      Do you think I always made over $100K? I lived on $35,000, with a wife that stayed home with 2 kids, but guess what, instead of whining and complaining, I went to college at night, educated myself, finished a degree, got a little better job, went back to school, full time while working full time, and finished my masters degree and got a little better job, all those years, I saved what little money I could, and then I opened my own business, and worked 7 days a week, 12-14 hours a day for years to make the wage that I make now. So screw you and your “I wish rich people could live on 35K bullshit! Why dont you sack up, educate yourself and do something but complain. NO you would rather whine about “I need a vacation”. Well take one, get a second job, save your money, cut grass on the side, shovel snow, bake some flipping cookies and sell them on the corner. WORK FOR WHAT YOU WANT!

        …and don’t forget that some folks who make over $100k have additional expenses…like extra costs for children who have become disabled due to unexpected circumstances, child support due to an ex-spouse having an affair and filing for divorce, etc…not everyone who is ‘rich’ can just blow their money…and not everyone who makes over $100k just sits around in a suit looking nice…some work their asses off and die of heart attacks at an early age…and some are under major pressure right now because they work in an industry that is effected by Obamacare…it’s not all wine and roses…sometimes it’s high blood pressure and headaches…I see it in my own family every day.

    They should have everyone paying SS that means Gov people all of them even the President, and only use it for SS, not paying off debt. They use SS to balance the budget when Clinton and Republican were in office, I think Carter also took SS money for the budget not 100 0/0 sure, and stop giving our money to people that hate us. They should stop all retirement pay to Presidents,congress,senate, and all other Goverment people. And maybe President and his family and other Goverment people should get one vacation like the rest of us,maybe they should pay what we pay for air plane tickets for using our Gov plane and maybe they wouldn’t be flying around so much. Wonder how much money this would save our country? So let’s see
    1. Stop all retirement
    2. Make everyone pay SS
    3. Make them pay the price we pay for airlines tickets to us our Gov planes other then bussiness trips

As a federal employee working for the SS department I’m curious how your brother in law doesn’t pay into the SS system.

    Thanks
    to the millions of Obama-loving moron voters. Perhaps they’ll say,
    “Someone had to pay”, and to that I’ll say this – NO! Someone didn’t
    have to pay! Someone had to CUT wasteful spending, but they didn’t.
    What’s worse is that
    it is a certain someone who said he would cut the deficit in half in
    his first term, but he didn’t, and yet you still trusted him. Someone
    who said he was in favor of “TRANSPARENCY”, but then hid behind closed
    doors to hammer out deals, and you still trusted him.

    However,
    it is fair to say that it was not a payroll tax increase, it was merely
    the expiration of a prior payroll tax cut which was not made permanent
    because the policy-makers have refused to get serious about cutting
    wasteful spending. Everyone should know whenever these policy-makers finally do “cut” spending they still are not really cutting spending, they are just reducing the rate of the INCREASE.

    • SirIzakNuton

      I’m sorry, but I disagree with your “it was not a payroll tax increase, it was merely the expiraton of a prior payroll tax”

      It is NOT the government’s money. It is OURS. It is really very simple. Taxes go up = a tax increase. Taxes go down = tax decrease. There is no “expiration”. To paraphrase Yoda: There is tax, or no tax. There is no tax break.”

  • David Gillies

    Something I have been saying for a long time: virtually all of the ills of this world can be blamed on one simple thing – the failure for consequences to stem from actions. Crime is endemic because criminals are not caught and given stiff enough sentences on conviction. Cities decay because taxes extract money from the productive with no concomitant improvement in services or conditions. And people vote themselves goodies from other taxpayers with no thought of sustainability. When, finally, reality intrudes it is a rude shock. This is why I’m in the ‘let it burn’ camp. You broke it, you bought it or, as Ben Franklin more elegantly put it: experience is the best teacher, but a fool will learn from no other.

    My paycheck doesn’t change at all – the money just goes somewhere else. When they cut the payroll tax, I just upped my 401K by the 2% cut and put it there instead of it going to SS. I lowered it the same 2% for the coming year(s) – the result is no change in take-home pay. Anyone who actually spent the extra money the last two years thinking the cut would last forever was a fool.

    • SirIzakNuton

      Wow! I am so impressed with your noble actions and I fall at the feet of your wisdom (end sarc)…except, dude, the 2% you set aside goes to YOU, the increased tax goes to the vortex of the federal government. So, just because “the money just goes somewhere else” sounds so simple and wise, does NOT mean it really is simple and wise.

  • http://www.RiderRants.BlogSpot.com Richard Rider

    I’m probably the only one here who thinks this SS tax “increase” (back to the previous level) is a good idea. It’s simple — we’ve committed to pay FAR more in SS pensions than we have salted away in the “SS trust fund” (which consists of IOU’s from the U.S. Treasury). Not paying 2% of the payroll tax would result in the SS fund running out of funding even sooner than now projected (about 2032, at last report).

    But I must admit that the frisky side of my brain looks forward to that SS BK eventuality. Not paying the tax just gets us sooner to the reckoning — the lesson that the government can’t pay out what it doesn’t collect.

    That leaves us four unpleasant alternatives from which to mix and match our SS solution:
    1. Raise SS payroll taxes dramatically. Check the European SS plans to see this.
    2. Cut SS benefits dramatically
    3. Hyper-borrowing
    4. Hyper-inflation.

    Pick your poison(s).

    • stuckinIL4now

      I agree with you about restoring the payroll tax. It should’ve been left alone in the first place. BUT Obamuh used it to buy votes and the stupid little idiots whose votes he bought with it had no clue then and have no clue now what the payroll tax is so they had no clue that 2% less was going to their individual SS contributions for 2 years which means less payout to them when it’s their time to collect–if they ever get to collect SS.

        Right you are, David. And now it’s too late to use your option.

        Like EVERY government insurance plan, the politicians can’t resist undercharging premiums while overpromising benefts. This is a UNIVERSAL tendency that can be found in just about EVERY government — local, state, national and even worldwide.

    • beebop1952

      If you think ANY of the 2% is actually going in to prop up SS than you are one of the most gullible people in the US.

      • mike_in_kosovo

        Actually, with the rate restored to normal, the general fund revenues that were taking the place of the reduced SocSec funds will be available for use.

        The SocSec tax holiday was really nothing more than the usual smoke and mirrors to buy support.

    • NachoCheese (D)

      or
      5. Radically alter the structure of Social Security by applying Means Testing to the “benefit”.

      I know this is not very popular, but without it, Social Security will collapse. It is nothing but a government run Ponzi Scheme and without continued steady increase in the number of contributors, there is no way to continue paying out to everyone.

      • http://www.RiderRants.BlogSpot.com Richard Rider

        Not a bad idea, IF the high earners were then exempt from paying INTO social security. Remember, it’s an “insurance” program.
        While unfair, I do expect that “means testing” will be used to help keep the Ponzi scheme afloat. And over time, expect the “means” level to be lowered again and again, but on an incremental basis — divide and conquer.

Because in 2010 it was negotiated to be extened with.the bush tax cuts for the fiscal years of 10 11 and 12. They were NOT extended to 2013 so what people are seeing as an “increase” is just a right wing twist on returining to pre 2010 levels.

    • http://twitter.com/Mellowtonein Mellowtonein

      Sure, another right wing plot. I wonder if you’ve considered that your left wing friends, who control 2/3rds of the government, did nothing to stop this? It’s not like they didn’t have the power or mandate to cut OTHER taxes. Think the Republicans would have opposed that? They could have put forward a plan to counter the pain this is causing. But what did the Dems come up with? More taxes, as always.

    • stuckinIL4now

      Your google skills could use some more practice. Originally it wasn’t in for 2012. It was temporarily extended for a few months in Dec 2011. Or don’t you remember Obamuh’s vote-buying scam when he drummed up support by asking people what they could do with an extra $40 a week. Remember Friday pizza nights? In Feb 2012 Congress extended it to the end of the year when they also extended unemployment benefits and approved the Medicare “doc” fix. AND the payroll tax cut was paid for with borrowed money so $100 billion was tacked onto the deficit. Obamuh doesn’t need the votes anymore so he didn’t fight for it this time. He wants to soak everybody now, not just the rich.

    Obama said that most people will not see their INCOME taxes go up. This is true. Social Security tax withheld from wages and salaries is NOT an income tax. It is a payroll tax. For all the people griping that Obama has lied or misled them, please educate yourselves. This 2% increase in Social Security taxes being withheld is simply the expiration of a portion of the Tax Relief Act of 2010 that gave a “payroll tax holiday” or payroll tax break to essentially the lower and middle classes to help out during hard times. It was effective ONLY for the years 2011 and 2012. The Social Security tax rate for withholding has been restored from the 4.2 percent rate (of gross pay) in 2011 and 2012 back to the 6.2 percent rate that has existed from as far back as anyone can remember until the end of 2010. This change has nothing to do with the notorious “Bush Tax Cuts.” The Bush Tax Cuts refer to the lower federal INCOME tax rates (NOT payroll tax rates) imposed on the wealthy. Blaming Obama for this Social Security tax rate “increase” only demonstrates ones ignorance of this tax issue. He should be thanked for giving us a break for two years which has now simply expired.

      See,here’s the beauty of it. Obama proved in this last vicious election cycle that it doesn’t matter what the truth is, he just had to get people to believe what HE pushed as the truth (nothing is his fault, taxes won’t be raised on the middle class, etc.) So in the spirit of turn about is fair play, I think it’s brilliant for conservatives to continue to ‘affirm’ to these low information Obama voters that this payroll tax increase is Obama’s fault. (And even though in this case it isn’t, maybe it’ll actually help prepare them for the unavoidable hits to their economic well being that are coming thanks to Obama’s big government mindset.)

  • Marc Moorash

    Sadly, the tax increase had nothing to do with the fiscal cliff. It had to do with the payroll tax decrease, which happened in 2010 and was done to help us common folk have more money to spend and bolster the economy, expiring, and taxes going from 4.2% back to the pre-2010 6.2%. As far as I can tell, neither side even considered re-upping the temporary decrease as enacted in 2010. So, *increase* is a relative term – increase from the past two years, return to same level as two years ago. Suffice to say, if there is blame, it is equal all around.

If spending cuts are off the table, massive tax increases on everyone, not just “millionaires and billionaires”, are required.

        • G.

          Speaking only in context of the SS tax on an employee basis. The drop in quantity of SS tax was compounded by the loss of jobs due to the recession, thereby decreasing the overall population paying into the fund and at a lower level of contribution. And. as joblessness increased, there would be a pronounced downward spiral of fund income.

    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.

    Amen.

    *(To be sung 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?)

      Takes two to tango. Funny how the ‘bad’ parts of a deal agreed to by both parties are blamed on Obama alone. Look at it this way, if the GOP had allowed taxes to go up on people making more than $250K instead of people making more than $400K, there wouldn’t have been a need to raise the Social Security contributions.

    This is why Republicans should have allowed the Bush tax rates to go away for everyone. It was the only way to make Obama and the dems take some heat. Instead, they allowed the media to cow them into believing that only they could possibly get the blame if that happened. Idiots.

  • disqus_VuuzZYZpXT

    Do NOT blame Social Security or it’s recipients for this. If you search history, Social Security has always been self funded and “SHOULD” have enough in the bank to stay in the black for the next 24 years. BUT….it has been ROBBED. The politicians took our investments for our retirement and used it for other purposes. They are supposed to pay it back. And that is the trouble….politicians lie, lie lie. Steal and lie some more. But retired and disabled people are not responsible for the irresponsible ways of American Politicians in Washington D.C.

      You keep repeating that, but that doesn’t make it true. Social Security taxes are not the same as income taxes.

      • Ethel Arauz

        Wow…. The GOP wanted to get rid of the payroll tax holiday in other words the 2% deduction from SS taxes that was passed in 2009. The GOP wanted to take away both the payroll holiday & income tax deductions. As part of negotiations only the payroll tax holiday expiration demand by the GOP was given into. Evil GOP wanted to take away child tax credits for low income households! Why would democrats want to take away the payroll tax holiday THEY PASSED, moron!

        • mike_in_kosovo

          Why would democrats want to take away the payroll tax holiday THEY PASSED, moron!

          You *are* aware that the word “holiday” makes the presumption that it is *not*, in fact, a permanent condition…right? Or are you the typical low-info liberal voter that only gets their data from soundbites?

          Well, here’s your soundbite:
          “WASHINGTON — House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) says Congress should let the payroll tax cut expire at the end of the year and instead work toward comprehensive tax reform.

          • Ethel Arauz

            That was my point! It was a HOLIDAY & now republicans are whining about it expiring. However, dems would have preferred to keep the TEMPORARY tax cut off their SS for a few more years. Republicans insisted on it expiring NOW as part of the negotiations.

          • mike_in_kosovo

            I must have missed where people here on twitchy are whining about the expiration…unless you think that all those tweets listed above are from Republicans?

            To expand: I’m sure there’s some Republicans griping about it – after all, nobody likes taking home less pay.

            The quote from Pelosi proves the lie to your statement that they Dems wanted to keep it around. Given the prevarications you’ve already thrown out in-thread, I’m afraid I’ll have to insist on a cite for your claim that Republicans insisted the holiday expire.

          • DrSamHerman

            If you are a business owner then your taxes did go up because you pay the Social Security self-employment tax. It isn’t Republicans who are whining, oh dear cognitively impaired “business owner”. It’s your side who is whining that the payroll taxes went back to their regular rate. Like no one expected they would? Your side functions on whatever your Messiah tells you.

            You are not a low-information voter, Ethel. You are a no-information voter. You vote however you are told. You are a very typical Democrat Pavlovian voter. Say “conservative” and you go into clonic-tonic seizures that make a paint mixer look sedate by comparison.

    True story, I was in the back of an elevator today in downtown N.O. and two Obama supporters got in and started bitching about their paychecks. And they were on an absolute rant about how their insurance premiums went up 30% as well as the 2% SS tax in their first check of the year. When I get to the floor that I need to get off, I looked at them and I said “Elections have consequences” and I strolled right out of the elevator. They. Were. Speechless.

      “Under this law.” What about his previous promise that:

      less than $250,000 a year will see any form of tax increase. Not your

    The expiration of the payroll tax cut was something republicans insisted on during the fiscal cliff negotiations. Now the GOP has the balls to blame the president? Typical GOP hypocrisy. It was either let the 2009 PAYROLL HOLIDAY that the GOP HATED when it was passed expire or take away the child, school, and personal tax deductions from income tax refunds. Do you really think democrats wanted to remove the payroll tax cut THEY PASSED IN 09? Bunch of stupid republicans talking shit like always. Give us a democratic house & you’ll get that tax cut again in 14.

      The payroll 2% deduction “holiday” was never meant to be permanent — always a political bomb to throw at the end of each year by whichever party is in control. Personally, I never counted on keeping that money in my pocket for the past 2 years, but it looks like many of my fellow Americans do not know the difference between payroll taxes and income taxes.

    See, here’s the thing: INCOME taxes won’t go up for 98% (or whatever the number is) of Americans, but OTHER taxes (payroll, excise, use, etc…) will. A politician is lying whenever s/he says taxes won’t go up. The only way Government can pay for the myriad programs and services it provides is to confiscate wealth from its citizens. It’s very simple calculus, more programs and services means more taxes. And don’t think for a minute that large corporations will shoulder the burden – if they get saddled with higher taxes, they merely pass it along as higher prices to consumers. The American public is at the bottom of the taxation food chain. How’s that November election looking for y’all now?

    Those who voted for Obama have only themselves to blame. Lot’s of people want free stuff from the government, but they never like it when the bill comes due. My take home pay is now less than it was before a recent pay raise, and I make 10% of the $450,000 that supposedly makes me one of the “rich”.

    If you’ve come to the realization that on November 5th you were a “Useful Idiot” and on November 6th you just became an “Idiot” you may be a #lowinformationvoter

    Let’s not forget the effect of other tax increases, the one’s on the “reprehensible” rich. Drain money from them & you drain money for investment, consumption, and savings. Money that spurs the economy, that circulates through the population. Not to say Obama and the Dems won’t at some time try to lay an income tax hike on the middle class.
    And then there’s the flood of new regulations this year, plus increased Federal spending for the Health Care mess. Are LittleLiberals happy? It’s just beginning.

    Health care insurance increase, payroll tax increased, gas prices on the rise again, paycheck going down, Happy New Year America!!! 4 more years of insanity. What has happened to MY Country? :(

  • Thomas D

    I hope I’m not as clueless and confused as the tweeters being quoted in this story, but I have to ask:

    On the day this story was written — Jan. 4 — there had been only three full work days in 2013. How are so many of these people already seeing the full brunt of a cut in their paychecks?

    Like this guy, tweeting on Jan. 3: My wife got her first paycheck of the new year, $100 smaller then normal… If this continues we will have $5200 less

    If his wife is getting a paycheck just three days into the year — i.e., three days since the increase kicked in — how is it already reflecting a full week’s worth of damage?

      Because taxes are withheld based on the date you get paid, even if the work that you’re getting paid for was performed last year. For example, I get paid tomorrow for the Dec 15-31 period. My taxes will be higher on that paycheck.

      • Thomas D

        I see. That explains it! Thanks.

        I can certainly see why that would be easier, logistically, for employers/payroll accountants. But it does seem a bit of a sneaky way for the fed gov to set up tax law. The timing of a payday is merely happenstance; the hours spent actually EARNING that income are not.

  • francoismariearouet

    You see? This is what we get as a country when we permit brainless, clueless affirmative-action sub-moron voters elect a brainless, clueless, affirmative-action President–who just so happens to be the single most ignorant man about economics in these United States and oh by the way set out to “fundamentally transform the nation.” Where else was that ever going to lead except to disaster?

  • wolfie773

    To low-info voters, $33 billion is an abstraction, but $51 means a lot. This is why everyone who works should have a skin in the game. There is nothing that will command fiscal responsibility in government like this healthy dose of reality.

  • rbeccah

    Hey, stop complaining about your paychecks! Obama has a seven million dollar Hawaiian vacation to pay for, racists.

  • terry2u

    This is soooo rich! All the Demos and libos are crying in their soup. Their “eat the rich” mantra just isn’t quite working out the way they thought, did it? Now, lower and middle class workers are going to get the shaft too. Kinda makes you sick to your stomach to know that your vote was wasted by re-electing that know nothing Obama, doesn’t it?.

  • Marx Plank

    for all you OBUMMER supporters it is called the STUPID tax you voted for the F***ER quit crying

  • Chriss Markey

    You idiots know nothing – our smaller paychecks will stimulate the economy!

    Is amazing how the takers outnumber the makers now. Liberals think they can run businesses, even industries through bailout and take-over, additionally regulate the heck out of business — BUT THE LIBERALS HAVE NO IDEA WHAT IT TAKES TO CREAT, BUILD, OR RUN A BUSINESS.
    Harken the rapid demise of old America.

    “Kids, I know we said we’d go back to Walt Disney World if Mr. Obama won the election, but he needs even MORE of mommy and daddy’s money to rescue us from the failed economic policies of the Bush administration and make life better for everyone. Now, let’s start planning ANOTHER four years of ‘staycations’!”

    I am not going to bother voting anymore. All politicians are liars. We get a great sales pitch only to find out the fine print is going to bankrupt all of us. With all the name calling among normal citizens we have divided ourselves so much we have become a mean and hateful nation. Mr. President, you can’t play the blame game anymore…all of you are doing a terrible job. I wonder if this is how the One world gov. comes about. Dissatisfaction from average citizens. “Things that make you want to go hmmm”

  • wcvarones

    Those slackers are bitching about 2%? For everyone above the payroll income limit, it’s 6.2%!

    “Under this law, more than 98 percent of Americans and 97 percent of small businesses will not see their income taxes go up.” – President Barack Obama

    That’s true. The vast majority of Americans will have less take-home pay due to a payroll tax increase, not an income tax increase. The President is technically correct, but I bet most people were misled. Read the fine print.

  • Petra

    Why all the crying? Evidently you make a lot of money… Pay your fair share…..oh wait that’s only what others have to do.. You know “the rich”…sadly I delight in your misery…

  • Pierre Paul

    Oh wow! Certainly oblamer and the democraps in congress didn’t lie to any of you libs, huh!? I can’t believe that!

  • Robert Jackson

    Haha what a bunch of uninformed and misinformed retards. I think it is funny. They hate the rich and want the rich to get raped for taxes yet they cry about a small tax increase, which isn’t even a tax increase it is just a tax going back to what it was

  • Superinfidel

    Shlubs And you know the best part of it? Ya got him for another 4 years!!! Ain’t that great?

  • captdot

    Please listen to the Presidents’ remarks. He said specifically that income taxes would not go up. Also, I assume whoever wrote his remarks was sure to phrase it that way. They have no desire to be forthright about everything when he’s being recorded.
