So all the debate about the fiscal cliff brought us to this place of raising taxes on people making over $450,000.00.
There’s only one problem…taxes were raised on 77% of taxpayers in this country!
How? Very simple.
While President Obama didn’t raise the income taxes on folks under the $450,000, he did allow payroll tax cuts to expire in the process. Thus, taxpayers noticed a change when they opened their checks last Friday. You may have noticed the people who shared their disgust on Twitter and Facebook.
And that doesn’t include the people who get paid twice a month who have yet to see the increase.
I’m quite positive they will be shocked.
My question is this, no matter what side of the aisle you’re on, when do we get tired?
When do we get tired of the same old politics?
It really doesn’t matter if you’re a Democrat or Republican, this is ridiculous!
We have been hearing over and over again about the importance of taxing the wealthy to keep the middle class from increases.
And yet, the moment the deal is done, 77% of taxpayers get a tax increase.
On top of that, according to the USA Today, this whole fiscal cliff deal will add about 4 trillion to the deficit.
So how again did this help?
We’ve raised taxes on most of the country AND ended up with a bigger deficit. Brilliant!
Again, I don’t care who you voted for in November. At some point this has to get old.
