    What a bunch of freaking morons.

    "
    “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....

    "
    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.”

    So for all we know, some right wing rube posted those posts on DU.

    As I have pointed out in several topics about the payroll tax cut, 77 percent of Americans have paid LESS payroll taxes under Obama than they would have, but I never did see the right wing fanatics praising Obama's name to the heavens for the tax cuts.

    I guess it really is time to do a search of the archives here to see what the whackjobs had to say about Obama when the tax cut was enacted. I would bet hard money they blew it off as no big deal. Not enough to matter.

    But now that it has expired, OH MY GOD! THAT RAT BASTARD IS BANKRUPTING ME WITH THIS TAX HIKE!

    Simple fact, under the past four years of Obama, you paid less payroll taxes. Now they have returned to what they were before he took office. They are being returned to the higher rates Bush had. Obama has not raised them higher than that. He just let his tax cut expire since it was an EMERGENCY measure.

    So this "he has raised taxes on 77 percent of Americans" bullshit is just that. Bullshit. You paid less taxes than you would have, and that will be true forever.

    Oh what a load of horse shit. Everyone knew that the payroll tax HOLIDAY (you know, as in temporary... like a HOLIDAY) would end at the end of the year. What right wing disinformation site is pooping this BS out?

    So what's the point of posting this anyway? To prove there's stupid people on both sides of the spectrum? The OP pretty much balances out the stupidity for the entire Democratic Party herself alone.

    The SS reductions was just as dumb as when Bush mailed out the $200 checks to the EIC crowd who actually paid nothing into the system.

    I do believe the comments are from Democratic Underground.

    Morons.

    That is a shining example of a really supremely stupid logical fallacy.

    No wonder you guys are too stupid to understand how taxes work.

    PS...no, the OP only illuminates the idiocy of ONE side of the spectrum.

    Enter moronic lefties, who confirm it beyond any doubt whatever.
