It’s interesting how the stance of “we won’t raise taxes on the middle class” really means “we’re in charge and you’ll give us whatever we want.”
I received my first paystub of the year yesterday and had a chance to look it over.
I could have used that money to do all manner of frivolous things. For example, putting fuel in my car for a month so I could get to and from work; or putting it into a savings account; or maybe paying down my own debt more quickly.
But, those would be responsible things to do.
Instead, the government will continue confiscating a larger and larger portion of my work, forcing me to pay for things that I do not want.
On the continuing tax increases, if you think this year’s increase was large (and it was, unless you’re mathematically incompetent) just you wait ’til øbamacare gets into full-force!
