Hilarious: Obama Voters Furious About Tax Hikes
Independent Journal Review ^ | 1/7/2013 | Kyle Becker

Posted on 01/07/2013 7:28:58 PM PST by Beave Meister

Democrat voters received a dose of economic reality after their New Year’s hangovers wore off, when they looked down at their 2013 paystubs and saw not Obama bucks, but higher federal taxes.

How misplaced was their trust in re-electing defender of the middle class tax-raiser President Obama? Workers making $30,000 will take a bigger hit on their pay than those earning $500,000 under the fiscal cliff deal. And Democrats are seeking $1 trillion more in tax “revenue” by the end of this year.

Now, it’s not nice to laugh at other people’s shock and surprise, but this is about as delicious as it gets. Voters seem to think that the president can hand out massive freebies like bailouts, stimulus, cash for clunkers, green energy subsidies and Obamacare, while somehow winding up personally protected by President Nice Guy from massive tax hikes and rising inflation.

I'm sure the propaganda ministry will have the official socialist talking points to explain this increase to the masses — that is, the increases will be the fault of George Bush, the Republicans, the evil rich — anyone but Obama and his cohorts.

Don't knock Arugula....

Rocket or arugula is a common vegetable in the whole Mediterranean region consumed since ancient times as a vegetable and for its medicinal properties.

As an example we can mention Dioscorides, who spoke about the medicinal properties he had observed of this valuable plant: "Eating raw, in bulk, rocket stimulates lust" Ancient poets like Ovid spoke of the rocket as an aphrodisiac remedy, such as the following epithet about Hierba Salax (= luxuriant grass ), which Columella says: "El qux frugifera seritur vicina Priapo; Excitat ad venerem tardos Eruca sativa."

Indeed, the rocket was a plant devoted to Priapus, the god of fertility in Greek mythology, and identified with the god in Italy Tutinus Mutinus, Roman divinity. Its consumption was advised for those who dreamt with the entry of Venus, ancient texts say.

A famous fourth-century Roman physician, Marecellus Empiricus, author of a form with numerous and stravagant remedies (De Medicamentis Empiricis, Physicis, et Rationabilibus), prescribed an expensive medicinal preparation based on rocket for those with impotence. I think Obama would prefer Quat or Kwat

Exactly. The mindless 20-something voter thinks the Dems want to save lives.. But then they forget what abortion is. They think people shouldn’t have 30 round mags.. But forget that three ‘ten round’ mags equals 30 rounds. They forget that our Forefathers wanted the gov’t to fear the people, not the other way around as it is now. They are clueless as to what our Forefathers intent was, and it has nothing to do with citizens using guns against each other.

'Now, it’s not nice to laugh at other people’s shock and surprise'

Like hell it isn't.

"But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: for men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away, for his name is Obama."

This has to be fake. Most democrats don’t get a paycheck and those that do can’t read it.

My brother talked me into buying a pizza the other day with Parma Prosciutto and arugula. I was surprised to see my pizza covered in lettuce when I got home. I had to scrape most of it off when I realized it was the type of lettuce I don't like. The pizza was still good with the Prosciutto on it.

how is that possible ?

Because the "payroll tax holiday" ended as of January 1. This increases the FICA taxes back to their full amount (as opposed to a temporary 2% cut) for people earning up to the Social Security threshold (just under $100,000, I believe). There are no deductions, exemptions, deferrals, or loopholes to avoid FICA taxes on regular income, so someone making $30,000 is going to have an absolute tax increase of 2% of their gross pay.

For the person making over $400,000, their marginal tax rate may be going up, but unless they find themselves without the means of taking advantage of deductions, et. al., it's unlikely that their effective tax rate will rise by 2% or more, even including the FICA increase on the first $100k or so.

I understand about FICA.

we can't use RAT weasel words to back a straw man RAT argument.(we can save that discussion for another day)

The 2% payroll tax didn't apply to those making 500k?( actually those making 110k or greater ) never-mind they paid the maximum amount possible anyway ? It just took a tad longer to do it.

they weren't affected by the decrease so of course they are “unaffected” by the 2% increase.
Brilliant.

Their marginal rates DID go up...period. Whether they pay additional taxes accordingly, is immaterial to the false argument.

I never should have brought it up. Once we start discussing it, it gives it credence\legitimacy.

Imagine the indignation when they have to wait in long lines for their “free” contraceptives or the one size fits all government issue birth control.

Just wait for the massive inflation and the 20 dollar Big Mac. No more fat Americans—people will be too poor to eat! This will hit the poor most of all.
