When you start paying $1000 more, thank your Regressive republican congress. Send a nice bouquet of flowers if you can afford it. They FAILED to pass an extension of the payroll tax cut which would keep the Middle Class from seeing an increase of $1000 a year.
Regressives had their own ridiculous bill spectacularly voted down last
night. Get this: In order to continue your payroll tax cuts, they
wanted to CUT 200,000 Federal jobs. "Help the Middle Class by firing
200,000 of them." Genius. Pure genius.
Democrats and the majority of Regressives in the Senate killed that stupidity. It went down in flames.
Apparently the Regressives' "Pledge to Obey a Lobbyist" and not raise taxes didn't include YOUR taxes -- only millionaires'.
And some righties will continue to be stupid enough to vote for them, against their own interests.
