Watching a Democrat learn something...

    "Sometimes, watching a Democrat learn something is wonderful, like seeing the family dog finally sit and stay at your command.
    With President Obama back in office and his life-saving “fiscal cliff” bill jammed through Congress, the new year has brought a surprising turn of events for his sycophantic supporters.
    “What happened that my Social Security withholding’s in my paycheck just went up?” a poster wrote on the liberal site “My paycheck just went down by an amount that I don’t feel comfortable with. I guarantee this decrease is gonna’ hurt me more than the increase in income taxes will hurt those making over 400 grand. What happened?”
    Shocker. Democrats who supported the president’s re-election just had NO idea that his steadfast pledge to raise taxes meant that he was really going to raise taxes. They thought he planned to just hit those filthy “1 percenters,” you know, the ones who earned fortunes through their inventiveness and hard work. They thought the free ride would continue forever.
    So this week, as taxes went up for millions of Americans — which Republicans predicted throughout the campaign would happen — it was fun to watch the agoggery of the left.
    “I know to expect between $93 and $94 less in my paycheck on the 15th,” wrote the ironically named “RomneyLies.”
    “My boyfriend has had a lot of expenses and is feeling squeezed right now, and having his paycheck shrink really didn’t help,” wrote “DemocratToTheEnd.”
    “BlueIndyBlue” added: “Many of my friends didn’t realize it, either. Our payroll department didn’t do a good job of explaining the coming changes.”
    So let’s explain something to our ill-informed Democratic friends. In 2009, Mr. Obama enacted a “holiday” on the payroll tax deduction from employees’ paychecks, dropping the rate from 6.2 percent to 4.2 percent. But like the holidays, the drop ended, and like New Year‘s, the revelers woke up the next morning with a massive hangover and a pounding head.
    “Bake,” who may have been trolling the site, jumped into the thread posted Friday. “My paycheck just went down. So did my wife’s. This hurts us. But everybody says it’s a good thing, so I guess we just suck it up and get used to it. I call it a tax increase on the middle class. I wonder what they call it. Somebody on this thread called it a ‘premium.’ Nope. It’s a tax, and it just went up.”
    Some in the thread argued that the new tax — or the end of the “holiday,” which makes it a new tax — wouldn’t really amount to much. One calculated it would cost about $86 a month for most people. “Honeycombe8,” though, said that amount is nothing to sneeze at.
    “$86 a month is a lot. That would pay for … Groceries for a week, as someone said. More than what I pay for parking every month, after my employer’s contribution to that. A new computer after a year. A new quality pair of shoes … every month. Months of my copay for my hormones. A new thick coat (on sale or at discount place). It would pay for what I spend on my dogs every month … food, vitamins, treats.”
    The Twittersphere was even funnier.
    “Really, how am I ever supposed to pay off my student loans if my already small paycheck keeps getting smaller? Help a sister out, Obama,” wrote “Meet Virginia.” “Nancy Thongkham” was much more furious. “F***ing Obama! F*** you! This taking out more taxes s*** better f***ing help me out!! Very upset to see my paycheck less today!”"

    I have seen people cry in public at local board meetings over a $40 a month property tax increase.

    this is only the beginning, americans are going to have to give up a hell of a lot more to maintain the liberal welfare state

    The only thing good about getting taxed more is that the liberal jackasses that voted Obama and thought they wouldn't pay more in taxes get hurt MORE by it. They deserve every bit of pain they get.
  4. That's because the government "me and the rest of the taxpayers" aren't going to pay it for them.

    LOL. Those silly parasites thought Obama would never ask them for mo-money. Make someone else pay for all my free stuff, the military, the government employees, Harry Reid's salary, cadillac healthcare and pension and all that foodstamp and welfare money they get. The laugh is on them. Stupid grunts.
  6. Just wait until the bill comes due for the decific.

    All those 20 something obama voters are fucked. They would have been better off going to sell used cars in omaha then going to college.

    I just can't imagine what is going to happen to them. Many who are getting good degrees will not be able to find work in their field. I think there is going to be a lashback of some kind. Apparently it is the worst for law students. Engineering still seems to be a good bet but even that is dwindling with the killing off of aerospace by the Obama regime. Aerospace was "too white" it seems.
  8. Aerospace is not "too male", fortunately. Take up this career and you will be treated to the finest female management teamz your heart could ever desire...... and plenty of blondes, all wanting to spend time with u

    all caught in the circling drain of this self-defeating welfare state ideology and demographic nightmare. well they voted for his ass, now they can figure out how to pay me mine. I don't know about you but there isn't any way I'm giving an inch on my entitlements now even if I don't need them.

    I wonder when blacks are going chimp out after waiting for their golden ticket for 4 years already. There's going to be a blowup in 2014 if they are still losing ground, and there's going to be very strong blowback if Obama and Holder try and force the issue through AA style quotas. They only way is to write them a special blackman gov't check, and that would raise the roof.
  10. Anyone who voted for Obama should receive a 10% tax increase. They must learn to embrace and support what they voted for.
