Actually, there should have never been a “payroll tax cut”, so the “payroll tax hike” is not a bad thing (given the premise that Social Security is here to stay for the next few years, anyway). The “payroll tax cut” was simply a move by 0bama to look like he was cutting everyone’s taxes.

I am no longer sending money directly to Barack Obama to help him defray the expenses of those frequent Hawaii vacations.

Next Tuesday (the 15th) will be a fun day to taunt all the Obama voters who will be looking at their paychecks for the first time in 2013. Twitter will be one of the best sources of comedy on that day.

Today is payday for a lot of Obama voters, too. And there are some real comic gems on Twitter.

Brittany ‏@britbb 30 bucks less in my paycheck today. Thanks a lot, Obama. #fiscalcliff

peterepublic ‏@peterepublic My paycheck is missing a tank of gas this week. What gives Obama?

Caleb Randol ‏@CalebAndRandol #Obama you lied to me. You said taxes wouldn't go up. You promised. My paycheck disagrees. Thought you were for students. Not cool.

Spending less on trivialities and more on ammunition and other staples.

I’ll be cutting back on my 401K (or maybe eliminate) contributions.

As I see it, our 401K’s will be the likely next target in the coming year(s). What is the penalty of early withdrawal of the entire 401K?

I might as well get something then nothing later on.

Basic economics: The FedGov produces nothing and only consumes. Dollars sent to the FedGov are spent with nothing to show for them. Dollars spent in the private sector produce goods and services, multiplying themselves many times.

My family is cutting back on spending in the private sector because more of our dollars are being forcibly taken by the public sector.

As others do the same, the private sector, from whom the dollars are extracted by the public sector, will shrink. The public sector will receive fewer and fewer dollars to consume.

It is the very simple equation seen most clearly in the host-parasite relationship. Eventually, both the host and the parasite die.

Unemployment Insurance Reauthorization, and Job Creation Act of 2010 provides a two percentage point payroll tax cut for employees, reducing their Social Security tax withholding rate from 6.2 percent to 4.2 percent of wages paid.

http://www.irs.gov/uac/Payroll-Tax-Cut-to-Boost-Take-Home-Pay-for-Most-Workers%3B-New-Withholding-Details-Now-Available-on-IRS.gov

*********

So the Social Security Tax withholding rate returns to the 6.2% which was reduced by 2% for two years during 2011-2012.

I WAS going to buy a new pickup, but not now. The money I budgeted for payments are now being taken from my pay check as taxes. I hope whom ever the obozo is giving my money to uses it wisely.

This along with the FSA limit reductions of Obamacare will result in a $1200 tax increase for me. Of course all of this pales in comparison to the loss of purchase power I have suffered over the last four years due to the monetizing of the debt. I will gladly accept the $1200 loss if we can turn grocery prices back to where they were in 2008.

I’m laughing my fanny off. The schadenfreude I’m getting from watching leftist heads exploding is worth the price I pay.

I put a buck in my good-feelings jar every time I tell a Lefty, “How’s it feel to be one of the rich?”
