So, Obama created a tax cut as part of his stimulus plan, which the GOP crowd has been whining about for years. Obama (and Congress) let this stimulus tax cut expire after renewing it once before and now the GOP crowd whines about that.
These posts just continue to prove what the hardline GOP is founded on, whining stupidity. Apparently, they recruit well.
And, it is obvious from your posts the left/progressive base is a group of absolute freaking morons. Do you really think taxing people more, especially those already paying almost %40 of the federal tax burden, is going to "fix things"?
Also, do you think the only people getting hit are those "evil" rich people??! Think again:
While most taxpayers were shielded from increases in their income taxes, payroll taxes went up for everyone. The IRS issued new withholding guidelines for employers earlier this week. Some workers will see the higher deductions on Friday; others next week.
Here are some examples.
-- for a single person earning $38,000 a year, the IRS told employers to withhold $5,437 a year. That's up $570, or $11 a week.
-- for someone earning $90,000, they will pay $19,885 -- or $2,443 more than last year.
-- for someone earning $185,000, the government will withhold $49,459 -- an increase of $5,977.
-- for someone earning over $400,000, payroll taxes will increase by $270 per week or $14,212 a year.
Most of people mentioned above are hardly "rich" yet your hero, and his lackies, hit them ALL with higher taxes. You are probably included in one of the groups above...yet you stand there and cheer it on? That makes no sense. Reminds me of the Animal House..."...thank you sir...may I have another..."...you stand there and shake your head in agreement, with a big stupid grin on your face, because it's your hero giving it to you in the shorts. If this was a GOP president doing this, all hell would be breaking loose.
I don't care what side of the isle you are on, if our representatives pass legislation that takes more money out of your pocket, everyone should be hacked off. Especially when they have shown time and time again they are not exactly great stewards handling our money. Especially when they have plenty of money and the issue in Washington is not a revenue issue, it's a spending issue. Especially when tax increases are not paired with spending reductions.
Even a complete and utter moron knows giving a heroin addict more heroin is not the answer. Attack me all you want, it still doesn't change the facts...which is obvious, you continue to ignore.
