    Another misinformed poster.

    Your taxes weren't raised. A cut you probably weren't even aware you had expired as it was designed to. That tax holiday you got was adding billions to the deficit. I though you RWers cared about that sort of thing.

    They have had enough of his tax hikes.

    Time to whack spending.

    The peeps have spoken:

    'Tuesday, January 15, 2013

    With the ink barely dry on the “fiscal cliff” deal that increased taxes for most Americans, President Obama on Monday raised the specter of additional tax hikes. Just 30% of Likely U.S. Voters agree with the president that more tax increases are needed.'


    30% Think More Tax Hikes Needed - Rasmussen Reports?

    It wasn't adding anything to the deficit. It was SS and Medicare expenses which are funded separately and are part of mandatory spending.

    Beside it is not a tax, it is call a "contribution". Check your pay stub. :)

    With all due respect, Akelch...a "contribution" is voluntary...FICA is anything but. You can spin this however you like but we just got hit with more taxes...with many more on the way. In the meantime we've had no meaningful spending cuts at all.

    then my paycheck isn't lighter because Obama stubbornly insists on having his arrogant way?

    No, dumbshit. Your paycheck was heavier for the past two years than it should have been because Obama was giving you a tax holiday as an emergency measure.

    The holiday is over and now your payroll tax is back to where it was before the holiday. Christ, you were getting a tax break from Obama for the past TWO YEARS and did not even know it?

    WOW! Your puppeteers are masters at keeping you in the dark!

    Wrong, look it up. Deficit from the holiday was supplemented by general funds.
