I just handed my 2% cost of living raise over to Obama and co. Add to that the actual 3% rise in the cost of living and we’re talking about a 5% hit. That’s $4,500. Add that to the same 5% hit my girlfriend just took and now we’re talking about a 10% reduction in this household’s disposable income or about $9,000 per year less money to spend on things like gas, groceries, utility bills, mortgage payments, property taxes, etc. This President is an economic disaster. Bush was an infinitely better President.
Five percent of yours plus five percent of hers is still five percent of your combined total.
Time to tie the knot and get that marriage penalty.
If your income is 100k, and your girlfriends income is 100k, that equals 200k.
you lose 5k and she loses 5k that equals 10k, but is only 5% of 200k.
President Bush was a thousand times a better president than that arrogant pos occupant of 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.
Since I knew this was coming, I started cutting expenses starting in Nov. America used to stand for improving yourself and going places, now its living with less, reducing your carbon footprint, and going nowhere.
