    It’s getting to look a lot like Christmas. President Obama is parading around in his Santa outfit as a “tax cutter” and champion of the middle class, and the seasonably spirited Senate on Saturday passed a package of goodies, including a two-month extension of the so-called payroll-tax holiday.
    It’s a poisoned gift. This unreturnable little holiday bauble — a truncated version of a measure already passed by the House — comes with a very steep hidden price tag: the complete exposure of the Social Security “retirement system” as nothing more than a welfare program.
    In other words, no pain and as much as a thousand-bucks-a -year gain in the paycheck. Only a Grinch could object to that. Or to the $105 billion in borrowed money to “pay for” this year’s “holiday.”
    It was a clever move by the Democrats. Smarting from their well-deserved reputation as tax-and-spend liberals, they turned the tables on the Republicans and dared them to “raise taxes” on the middle class by letting the “temporary” measure expire come Jan. 1.

    Poor, poor, 'Conservatives'. You got your asses royally kicked on this one. It showed your true colors. Tax cuts great for the very wealthy, too expensive for the working and middle class. LOL.

    The two-month payroll tax holiday isn't coming out of the Social Security trust fund, but out of the general fund. When our elected representatives return from their holiday break, they will have to figure out a way to pay for it for a year.

    when these people show up at the social security office and find out what's happened to them there will be a lot of people switching from the demoncrap party over to the Republican party.

    110 billion from social security last year and 110 billion from social security this year, and there is no way to pay for it.. it just sinks us furthur into debt and it's going to hurt a lot of people in the next two decades.. they only thing they can do now is make you work til you're 80 and hope you croak before you ask them for a check..
