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.

Well, it’s my monthly utilities plus food and gas. My takehome is about half yours.

"I make $635 every two weeks in take home..."

If you make $635 every two weeks in take home, then take your gross pay, multiply it by 2%, then divide that by two and that's how much you'll be getting per week (for two months anyways). You're looking at more like $6.35 to $7.00 per week, not $40. It's 2% of gross pay, not a flat $40 per week for everyone, that's the whole point.
