Everything about this “fiscal crisis” stinks to high heaven, corruption at it’s best, starting with the Executive pay raises, imho, were nothing more than a bribe to Congress and Judges, those that could do him the most good. This 11th hour deal was a rouse, let’s get the blustering and posturing out of the way, make the people think that we’re really doing something then we’ll come in with a save the day tactic. When was the deal really made? Was this in Obama’s pocket all the time?
I don’t even know where to start on this mess. Boehner, the spineless wonder, needs to go, he has no guts to go against the liberal machine and Obama, he has caved on everything since Obamacare.
This deal didn’t avert anything, it postponed it indefinitely, taking out a loan to pay off your bankruptcy does not avert your bankruptcy, it just postpones it. I liken this deal to Obamacare, pass it now and we’ll fix it later, well that later never came for Obamacare and it won’t come for the cutting spending either. How stupid do they think we are that WE THE PEOPLE would buy into this bunch of horse crap?
Your tax rates are not going up under the Fiscal Cliff agreement but your paychecks will be smaller, starting with your next one.
The two-year-old payroll tax holiday is over with the rate going from 4.2% to 6.2%. Here’s how it affects your bottom line: If you’re making $30,000 a year, you’ll pay about $50 more a month in taxes.
If you’re earning $50,000 a year you’ll pay $83 more a month. And those making $113,700 a year will be paying $190 more a month in taxes.
The payroll tax funds Social Security. The lower rate was costing the government 120-billion dollars in tax revenue a year.
This bill will add $4 trillion more to the deficit over the next 10 years.
Take note Congress, we know you, we know who you are and your day will come, sooner than later. We’re tired, we’re fed up and we’re not going to take it for much longer, there will be a revolution in this country, by what means I don’t know but remember, YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED.
Meanwhile, Obama the Great, has headed back off to Hawaii at who knows what cost and could sign the bill by autopen or have it flown to him, wtf, flown to him, you know that will cost hundreds of thousands.
