When many Obamunist voters got their first paychecks of the new year, they were shocked to find that that the Social Security withholding just “went up” and their checks are noticeably smaller. The truth is that the withholding didn’t actually go up. It was simply reinstated to the same rate that it was in 2009 when Obama declared a payroll deduction “holiday” which temporarily dropped the rate from 6.2% to 4.2%. So… the party’s over. Meet the new tax, same as the old tax, SUCKAS. That’s what they get for being low information voters. Obama baited the hook, MSM cast the line and the free stuff morons gobbled it up hook, line and sinker. Now that reality has taken a bite out of their paychecks, the Obamabots are not happy. Joseph Curl of The Washington Times visited a few lib blog sites and shares some of their lamentations:

“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?”

“I know to expect between $93 and $94 less in my paycheck on the 15th,” wrote the ironically named “RomneyLies.”

“My boyfriend has had a lot of expenses and is feeling squeezed right now, and having his paycheck shrink really didn’t help,” wrote “DemocratToTheEnd.”

“BlueIndyBlue” added: “Many of my friends didn’t realize it, either. Our payroll department didn’t do a good job of explaining the coming changes.”

“My paycheck just went down. So did my wife’s. This hurts us. But everybody says it’s a good thing, so I guess we just suck it up and get used to it. I call it a tax increase on the middle class. I wonder what they call it. Somebody on this thread called it a ‘premium.’ Nope. It’s a tax, and it just went up.”

“Really, how am I ever supposed to pay off my student loans if my already small paycheck keeps getting smaller? Help a sister out, Obama,” wrote “Meet Virginia.”

“Nancy Thongkham” wrote “F***ing Obama! F*** you! This taking out more taxes s*** better f***ing help me out!! Very upset to see my paycheck less today!”

“_Alex™” sounded bummed. “Obama I did not vote for you so you can take away alot of money from my checks.” Christian Dixon seemed crestfallen. “I’m starting to regret voting for Obama.” But “Dave” got his dander up over the tax hike: “Obama is the biggest f***ing liar in the world. Why the f*** did I vote for him”?

WHAAAAAAAAAAA!

    Why focus on low information voters?

    Don’t forget Susan Estrich’s cri de coeur

    I did not vote for Obama because I think I am paying too little in taxes.

    WAAAAAAA

    Of course, NO ONE on the left brought up the payroll tax holiday before the election. Nor did they dwell on the new Obamacare taxes. All of this designed to take effect after the election.

    Meanwhile, the OBAMAFONE! crowd are blaming Bush. Low information voter doesn’t even come close.

    And no one seemed to grasp that the “Payroll Tax Holiday” removed the revenue stream for two Federal programs that are already effectively bankrupt. It truly boggles the mind.

    @ MacDuff:

    Exactly, Mac – and at a time when the systems were becoming increasingly burdened via the retirement of the baby boomers and the use of SS disability to help the unemployed that had exhausted their benefits.

    I’ve suspected that the payroll tax holiday was not only just another Bammy Clause moment, but would also be useful when it came time to try a 401K grab because they would say “the programs are in worse shape than we realized.”

    “Tucker speaks about a problem that has been slowly encroaching upon everyone in recent years and decades, an attempt by modern day bureaucracies to roll back civilization bit by bit. The basic philosophy informing this ‘death by regulation’ is chiliastic socialism, the Utopian mystical socialism that wants man to return to a state of nature in keeping with the idea of a Golden Age that according to myth preceded modern civilization and was allegedly vastly superior to it. Naturally there was no private property in this Golden Age. Experiments in Utopian socialism informed by the ‘divine inspiration’ of cult leaders were already attempted in certain regions in medieval Europe, and not surprisingly all of them failed spectacularly (as soon as the loot confiscated from non-believers ran out). Our modern-day version is less obvious, and for that more insidious. From taking phosphate out of dish-washing soap to banning the only coolants that actually work from air conditioners and freezers, bureaucrats are attempting to do away with the advances of civilization one bit at a time. The EU’s ban of incandescent light bulbs which have been replaced by energy savings lamps that are as ugly as they are poisonous is a prime example for the undemocratic nature of this rule by administrative law enacted by unaccountable bureaucrats.”

    The new mantra from the Dems on deficit is that it’s all the Republican Congress’s fault because they okayed all the spending and now the bill’s come due.

    Um….budget? Passed? No? Work off old budget and until they pass new one – which Reid won’t allow the Senate to vote on because then the truth about DemoRat spending comes out.

    I had my annual ‘ladies’ appt w/my doctor today. I thought she was on the liberal side – pretty much vegetarian, etc. As I waited for her in the exam room I noticed among the articles tacked to the bulletin board was one from American Thinker. About Benghazi. Why Obama let them Die. In her handwriting were notes about the gun running to AQ.

    !!!!!!!!!

    When we sat down I asked her if she was going to leave her practice – I knew she hates Obama care and really thought Romney would win and save us all. She said “As long as they don’t throw me in jail for not giving them my guns. Last gun show I loaded up on magazines”.

    !!!!!!!!!

    ‘Cuz one of the things on my list to talk to her about was “If you think I’m going to answer any questions about weapons I own under the auspices of ‘risk factors’ as defined by Obamacare – don’t bother because I won’t answer”.

    She took me off a med that’s produced only by one pharmaceutical company and put me on another that’s produced by several to increase chances of availability when the SHTF.

    What a relief.

    Obama administration ends post-9/11 restrictions on Saudis entering U.S.

    ABU DHABI — The United States, a decade after Al Qaida strikes in
    New York and Washington, has opened its doors to Saudi nationals.

    Diplomats said the administration of President Barack Obama has removed
    most restrictions on the entry of Saudis to the United States. They said the
    percentage of visa approvals for Saudis has reached unprecedented levels.

    “The United States aims to raise the number of visas that it issues
    annually, particularly to Saudi nationals, who represent an important
    group,” Joseph Hood, U.S. consul-general in the Saudi city of Dhahran, said.

    Hood cited economic reasons for the easing of restrictions on Saudis. He
    said Saudi businessmen and students have been allowed to enter the United States in record numbers, with a 60 percent increase since 2010.

    What could possibly go wrong?

    My commute was killing me. I was starting to put things in order to find a new job when they figured (I could have told they BTW) that we could do all of our work remotely, they could save a bundle on office space, and since we were all salaried, they could work us more hours if we weren’t stuck n bumper to bumper traffic several hours a day.

    Nah – I’d be screwing up the Bay Bridge commute instead. Sort of a one-woman “Act UP”

    I know people who commute from PA and West VA.

    McCain might, but those Dem Senators from purple/red states that are facing re-election in 2014 aren’t going to vote for it. If they thought health care was bad – wait till the NRA members start attending their Town Halls.

    Arizona a better Senator.

    Yep. We’re self-employed and our office is in the house – we refinished the basement just for that and it’s very nice – kitchenette, sitting area w/TV for C-Span, etc. Once or twice a week Hubby will have to go to the Hill for a meeting but that’s rarely a rush-hour event –

    Hubby used to have his office on New York Ave about 2 blocks from the White House – it was ok when he lived in Geotwn – but not from Northern Virginia. Now it’s pretty sane around here – except for the occasional nut case that wants to jump off a bridge.

    Look around.

    I think it is worth considering that the reason there have been no major jihad attacks is because we are committing suicide. We are destroying ourselves, and inviting the enemy in.

    When the enemy is destroying themselves, why stop them?

    A major attack would galvanize us against them, and be counter productive.

    Patience is victory.

    No they car-pool, so they can take turns sleeping. At least the guys I know who communte down from PA. I am not sure about the one person I know who commutes from West VA. It is possible he takes the train.

    I would think of them as I made my own way doing the Salmon Run up and down 270.
