We knew this. Everyone knew this.
But John Boehner decided not to tell the media.
What part of the new law auto-signed by Obama while on his way to Hawaii says that someone making $30,000 will pay more Federal Taxes than last year? What part?
This hypothetical person’s paycheck takehome will go down but not because of Federal Taxes that I’m aware of. The law keeps the 2004 Bush Taxes cuts for them in place.
What this is really all about is that 2% of their paychecks for SS - back up to the same percentage they (this $30,000 earner) paid a couple of years ago.
Don’t vote for the ass-clown ... and then whine when you get what you voted for. Pay your ‘fair share’.
This is a good thing. The working poor aren’t paying their fair share, and the rich already bear the majority of the load.
Oh yeah, I see it coming down the pike, just like that..
Wait until Obamacare kicks in.
How long before obama signs an executive order dropping it back?
Time to eat your peas.
To all people who voted democrat and who actually work for a living; No thank you for being as stupid as you are. Stupid is as stupid does and you all done did it to yourselves, your children, and to all of us who know that many of you are too stupid to live as you are such greedy fools to beleive that hurting others livelihoods wouldn’t hurt your own. Your wrong by a long shot as now you will be paying higher taxes out of your own monies because you are nut case nazis.And wait to see what your commiunist elect dictator will do when gas prices, food, clothing, and taxes soar as jobs decrease and companies close shop.
Democrats are an ugly,evil,arrogant and ignorant people who are dead in the water and who will sink all people around them by thieving and stealing others hard earned money.
The “little guy” will just never figure out what happened. Rush Limbaugh explained all of that on the Jan. 4, 2013, broadcast. The little guy is too dominated by the national media if he is aware of much at all.
Only the British papers are reporting this?
If you earn $30,000 a year you Don’t Pay any Income Taxes and you should, we are only talking about a small portion of your Social Security Tax, 2%. If there was true fairness Everyone would pay 15% + their 17.4% Social Security and Medicare TAX. Which by the way is what all of us who are Self Employed Pay. Personally I think it’s high time we ABOLISH the “Victory tax”, Make everybody write their OWN CHECK in FULL every Year. I mean the War did end right??
For the Public School Grads that might read this, the “victory Tax” is what is called “mandatory withholding” today. It was implemented in WW2 as a measure to finance the war and was passed as a “Temporary wartime measure”
