Obama Asks Twitter “What Would You Do With $40?” (Another Lame Hash tag by Hussein)
Skim That.com ^ | 12.21.11 | M. Khalili

Posted on 12/22/2011 3:42:30 AM PST by Recovering_Democrat

In an effort to gain support for the payroll tax cut extension, the Obama administration launched a Twitter campaign using the hashtag #40dollars that asks what people can buy with the additional amount every paycheck. The amount is the weekly average that Americans would save under the current payroll tax cut bill and would affect about 160 million Americans. On Tuesday, the House rejected a Senate compromise that would have expanded the tax cut for 2 months.

Well from what I have read, the amount not put in the Social Security fund is closer to $20....but regardless, this is.another pussified attempt by Hussein to create "buzz" about his scheme to defund the retirement of elderly Americans.

Its just delaying the tax.

SS has to be paid out (or go into default) so taxes that are not collected today have to be made up for later, one way or another...

I’d use it to support any candidate that intends to run against him.

Great question, Barry. If you cut the income tax rates, we'd have even more in our pockets every two weeks.

How 'bout it, huh? That would REALLY paint Republicans into a corner, wouldn't it?

What an anus.

I would join with other like-minded people and raise cash for a billboard that says Obama is a communist coward.

My question would have been “what could we do with the $4 million being pissed away on someone’s Hawaiian vacation right now?”

nothing. I have to give $20 of it to some asshat in washdc under threat of violence so he an give $12 of it to slack-ass crack heads that are too lazy and completely lacking in skills to get a job

of the remaining $20, I have to spend $10 to pay for my mortgage... which also pays for those people refusing to pay their mortgage, yet the bank hasn’t taken their property... in over 2 years

of the final $10, I use $8 to get some crappy sandwich and $2 to pay for 1/2 a gallon of gas

thanks numb nuts... you’re doing a superior job

I would donate the $40 to whever the Republican candidate is who was NOT picked for us by the Democrats and follow-like-a-puppy media. Or maybe donate $40 for whoever is working to throw a major monkey wrench into the $1B Chicago-based AstroTurf Factory run by Dave and Bob.

Let's see, for my Ford E-150 Van (which I use for work and has a 36 gal tank--here in the People's Socialist Republic of Utopian Moonbats (Vermont)--that's about 1/3 of a tank of gas...

...or a box of medium grade cigars, on sale....

...or a nice big bottle of Crown Royal.

That said, considering I'm self-employed (and pay both "halves") for me, this is much ado about nuttin!

$40 every week means you’re making $2000 a week or over $100,000 a year. So $40 stolen from the SS fund sends you into poverty mode??
