Aren't we so everloving blessed that his majesty Obama is taxing the wealthy?The stats I can gather is the tax was raised 1.,3 % for those in the %$200,000 to $300,000 bracket and raised 1.7 % for those of us in the $  30,000 to $200,000 bracket.That's taxing the wealthy.He has some mighty skewered math.The state of Missouri gave me a 10 cent raise at the first of the year.Wheee,that's $8.00 a pay period.Thanks to the new tax hike on "we the wealthy",I am now receiving $31.38 less a pay period.Wonder who I can thank for this legal robbery?

That's the new math for ya.  To go forward, you have to go backward but by doing this on the second Tuesday of the sixth week of the 15th month of the year, you only go sideways a little bit and come out ahead!  Problem is, those that they were supposedly aiming the new taxes for have the ability to spend less to hire people that will find ways of "hiding" their money so it isn't taxed and if the worst comes about. . . . .move to a different location so you pay less taxes.  All you have to do is look at what the rich in France are doing. . . . .moving out of the country!  Many to Russa and other countries that are pleased to have them there.  Better yet, look at New York City!  When they raised the taxes there, many of the rich started moving out also.  What it boils down to is that if you have the money. . . . .you can get what you want and the way that you want it no matter what tax situation comes about.


I won't be wronged, I won't be insulted, and I won't be laid a hand on. I don't do these things to other people and I expect the same from them.

Overheard at work, Obama supporters complaining about the tax hike. I asked them if they really thought tax hikes would only affect Republicans? They actually replied, yes. People like that really vote, God help us.
