    Analysis: 77% of Households to See Tax Increase

    By John D. McKinnon

    The fiscal cliff bill’s impact would be far-reaching for American taxpayers, and particularly painful for very high-income households, according to a new analysis.

    About 77% of American households would see a tax increase compared to their 2012 tax levels, according to the analysis by the Tax Policy Center, a joint venture of the Brookings Institution and the Urban Institute.

    elections have consequences,

    The people believed the lie in 08, and took the bait again in 2012, even after witnessing all the broken promisses. Now we must all bear the wrath of the democratic party! Just wait and see, wait til all these folks see their paychecks shrink and their grocery bills double, then..........no, even then it probably won't matter to them.....it will still be "go O" And, it's Bushes fault!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Fortunately, hubby doesn't pay into Social Security so we're not going to have that go up on his check, just mine which is much smaller (I just work 8-10 hours a week). But it will still hurt. What I'm looking at is cutting the food bill and trying to sell a few things at this point. :(

    Looks like ours will increase by about $300. That's a week's paycheck. For someone who has not had a raise in 5 years that is a lot. :(

    And Romney was the enemy.....yeh, right. Remember the 47%?

    Elections do have consequences. I'm almost laughing.

    This is getting so much like pre-Nazi Germany, it is almost breathtaking. History repeats itself. And Hitler was elected, too.

    The only tax increase on the middle class is the resumption of the usual rate of the employee's contribution to FICA which is reverting to back to 6.2% from 4.2%. This was not unexpected and should not come as a surprise. Did Obama lie when he promised to tax increases on the middle class and then FICA goes back to its usual rate? I don't think so, but if the media were to be consistent and treat Obama like they treated Bush, then it should be called a tax increase.

    We are not done either brother as they keep kicking the can down the road. I seriously do not have any confidence that BO has a clue how to negotiate deals......thats why he always sends "Plugs" Biden in.... it's on the job training for Obama....who has no ability to be an effective President. It is going to be a sorry 4 years ahead of us.

    Obama has no idea how to run the economy back into black.
    He has bright ideas about how to dunk it in red.
    Like this one I stole from EWF says:

    A ten year old running a lemonade stand has a better grip on the economy than anyone else in government! :thumbsup:

    Another Obama lie: No middle class tax increases

    The lie isn't new, nor does it only affect the middle class. One of his early acts as president was to raise taxes on cigarettes. Statistics at the time indicate the majority of smokers are in the lower income brackets. Yet, he PROMISED that he would not raise taxes on anyone earning less than a half million a year.

    That single act, should have clued John Q Public into seeing how much stock to put into his promises relating to taxes.

    But, there is one promise that he kept and is still keeping.


    To fundamentally change this nation. That, my friends, is one promise we can count on going forward.

    The evidence continues to mount. The deniers continue to deny.

    And the liar in chief continues to lie.

    The reduced FICA was a temporary relief during the depth of the recession. It was never meant to be permanent. Social Security must be paid for. I support elimination of the cap on earnings subject to FICA. That would fix any problem funding it.
