“Why (would) the administration ... propose a Social Security payroll tax holiday in its jobs bill, but simultaneously suggest a tax increase for middle-class federal workers?” asked Joseph Beaudoin, president of the National Active and Retired Federal Employees Association. :
Because he’s a lying SOS. Wow military retirees get the millionaire treatment. And Airline passengers, well now you pay to get some stranger to feel you.
This administration is WAY OUT OF CONTROL.
They remind me of the 6th grader that takes daddy’s car and drives and high speeds swerving aimlessly on the road.
This 6th grader is the voice of some controlling group of commies probably
all over the world and he was hatched to do their bidding to bring the world down to a one world government. Tear it all down. Easier to start over that way.
Which is a crime in most states.
I think the Republicans need to jump all over this - everybody knows Social Security is going broke and the Obama answer is to reduce collection of Social Security taxes! We need to hit this hard and demonstrate to our seasoned citizens that Obama is going to take away their Social Security by bankrupting the system even more quickly. Remember the RATS scared senior citizens when Bush simply wanted to put part of the payroll tax in a private account to get more interest. Obama is doing this to reduce one of taxes "his people" actually pay.
Meantime, I believe I heard a figure that the top 1% of earners pay something like 30% of all income taxes collected. What's not fair about that? I think that what's not fair is that those earners are paying an unconscionable amount of the total income taxes collected. So , Mr. President, take your "fair share" and shove it!
