This is the only kind 'CHANGE' Obama has in mind for you Americans. He just led you to believe it was the other kind to get re-elected.

Yeah, I guess we should be "agog" that the roll back is being spun like this, but I'm not.
Yeah, it hurts, but if you guys want your Social Security in the future, it has to be funded.
Its tenure has simply ran out. Nobody screamed and cried when there was less money being taken out of their paychecks.

As new taxes hit an already struggling American public, you just have to wonder how much more we can take.
Sometimes, watching a Democrat learn something is wonderful, like seeing the family dog finally sit and stay at your command.
With President Obama back in office and his life-saving “fiscal cliff” bill jammed through Congress, the new year has brought a surprising turn of events for his sycophantic supporters.
“What happened that my Social Security withholding’s in my paycheck just went up?” a poster wrote on the liberal site DemocraticUnderground.com. “My paycheck just went down by an amount that I don’t feel comfortable with. I guarantee this decrease is gonna’ hurt me more than the increase in income taxes will hurt those making over 400 grand. What happened?”
Shocker. Democrats who supported the president’s re-election just had NO idea that his steadfast pledge to raise taxes meant that he was really going to raise taxes. They thought he planned to just hit those filthy “1 percenters,” you know, the ones who earned fortunes through their inventiveness and hard work. They thought the free ride would continue forever.
So this week, as taxes went up for millions of Americans — which Republicans predicted throughout the campaign would happen — it was fun to watch the agoggery of the left.
That's right. Just bend over and take it Amerika. 3.50 gas, and now even more taxes. Just living is becoming impossible. Rent out the roof, food skyrocketing. We are ******.
The government has a lot of nerve to even THINK about raising taxes right now. But they did it. Yeah, CHANGE you can believe in.edit on Mon Jan 7th 2013 by TrueAmerican because: (no reason given)
so...Obama is to blame for corporations raising their prices, or keeping your income too low to live on? c'mon people here still have brains cells left....and about those taxes???? they were what everybody was paying back in the nineties..but now...somehow you can't live with them?....

Thanks Camaro that is another bit of information that people doesn't understand and don't want to know about it and because of that the news hand pick what the public wants to hear
The Fed Free permit to have the Treasury printing (under the Quantitative easing another word for "bailout") to keep themselves and the banksters alive and to stop Wall Street from collapsing on the scam they have over peoples retirement accounts and pensions is incredible but most Americans failed economics and many do not understand finances or we all will have plenty of money saved in our accounts and people will not be so much in credit debt.
Just like the government, the fed and wall street banksters are.
When you run a Bank on more trash money than liquidity you know that the banks should be bankrupted, and that is how all the too big to fail are right now the are.
Just like the government is.

I voted Obama, not shocked nor surprised. Ss was reduced a few years back by 2% or so I believe figured it would go back up. Also Obama can't cram anything through a republican owned house and Senate had your beloved republicans got what they wanted middle class and poor would have been squeezed to death while the job destroyers (aka the wealthy) sits back and enjoys new breaks for being wealthy already.
