Obama Supporters Dismayed and Betrayed by Tax Hikes
Perhaps the light bulb (likely an energy-efficient florescent model) has gone on for Democrats.
The fiscal cliff compromise will result in tax increases for 77 percent of all American households -- even those making as little as $40,000 a year -- and now Democrats across the county are lashing out at their "hope and change" savior!
The Washington Times, which you can hear on "America's Morning News" on Newstalk 870 from 3-6 a.m. weekdays, reported recently social media networks are burning with comments from Democrat incensed, dismayed, and feeling betrayed that THEIR taxes went up. Wasn't it only supposed to be the rich? Apparently the joke is on the middle class, regardless of political affiliation. According to the Washington Times:
The nonpartisan Tax Policy Center in Washington put the total at 77.1 percent of all wage earners. In fact, 'More than 80 percent of households with incomes between $50,000 and $200,000 would pay higher taxes. Among the households facing higher taxes, the average increase would be $1,635, the policy center said,' according to a Bloomberg News article. Hilariously, the tax burden will rise more for someone making $30,000 a year (1.7 percent) than it does for someone earning $500,000 annually (1.3 percent).
'Really, how am I ever supposed to pay off my student loans if my already-small paycheck keeps getting smaller? Help a sister out, Obama,' wrote 'Meet Virginia.'
'Nancy Thongkham' was much more furious. 'F***ing Obama! F*** you! This taking out more taxes s*** better f***ing help me out!! Very upset to see my paycheck less today!'
These were just a few of the posts shared by writer Joseph Curl, who indicated the web is full of tens of thousands of upset citizens and voters. Imagine the feeling of the rest of the country.
Forget the 99 percent, the 77 percent just got hit upside the head with a financial two-by-four.
