It means I’m going to pay more taxes.

I’m in the 19 buck bracket, and it’s beer money to me.

A better question is “what could I do with the money the Obama’s spent on their Christmas vacation?”

Live for the rest of my life. Very well, while raising a family of responsible, patriotic citizens. And likely leaving them virtually the entire amount as an inheritance.

I guess Social Security really is a burden on the working man.

This deficit in the revenue from FICA collections has to be made up somewhere. And it will come out of the general tax revenue collection funds, make no mistake about it. Willingly or otherwise, American citizens have agreed to being more heavily taxed than ever they have been in the past, and it will NOT be limited to only “the rich”. The most pernicious tax of all is the general inflation all of us will soon feel, as the purchasing power of the few remaining dollars we have left is steadily reduced, sometimes in large increments, as the low-interest availabilty of ready cash spreads further and further in our economy. Or even cash grants, essentially a subsidy for the falling value of the dollar, further exacerbating the already declining value of whatever medium of exchange that is accepted by the denizens of the now failing state.

When a loaf of bread hits $150, and artificially subsidized goods become ever more scarce, the full impact of this Soviet-style command economy will begin to affect even the most fervent socialists. As a similar situation came to affect the citizens of the former Soviet Union, they turned to an underground economy, in which exchanges of labor for goods and services became the medium of exchange. Primitive, but this in turn forces some serious decisions on the governing class - do they prosecute the black market, or do they reform the economic system?

$40 a week means more votes for the Food Stamp President.

$40 is four days of food for me. My nutritional consumption, such as it is, would have to be reduced by more than half. I would go postal.

Can’t even buy a muffler for $40! Someone ping little Tommy Daschle.

Everybody is missing the true motivation behind this push for the reduction. Since 47% of people no longer pay income tax, the next best way to remove them further from the tax rolls and ensure a permanent Democrat ruling class is to move towards a means tested Social Security contribution and eventually a similarly twisted Medicare Tax. At some point you’ll hear that the “rich” should be covering the share of these deductions for the currently untaxed. Not only will the 53% be paying for the percentage of Americans that are permanently attached to the National Nipple, but they’ll also be covering all of the benefit costs of the rest of the untaxed.

It means that I’d be wishing I didn’t have to return someone else’s paychecks.

Compared to half of the country being out of work, it doesn’t mean anything.

O is trying to blackmail the country with twenty bucks a week, to accept policies that are killing us.

It is only $20 a week. $1,000 per year.

20 bucks a week actually does make a difference. My weekly budget includes only 120 bucks of pocket money. What comes out of that pocket money is weekly groceries for myself, non-grocery store meals, and entertainment, and a little bit of miscellaneous spending. Chop that by 20 bucks and my standard of living takes a noticeable hit.

$20-$40 a week for teacher union dues. This figure was probably worked out to give teachers the money to pay their dues in states that no longer collect and pass through to the unions for direct contributions to Obama.

If this is true, then $40 a week means that I will end up paying $160 more in taxes each month. I make $635 every two weeks in take home. Me and my co workers will be very angry. You who gave me this tax will become an object of wrath. Even I might vote against the GOP over this.

That means the GOP.

I will be hurt, hurt terribly, by this $40 per week tax. Only a fool will raise taxes on my income group. The GOP is marching into a trap yet again.

AND the "cost offset" of this "magnificent ZERO'S $40 tax reduction to the American workers" will be recovered over TEN YEARS via the Freddie and Fannie fees. These are the clowns we have running the Gov in the District of Corruption. THROW EVERYONE OF THEM OUT on Nov 6.
