Obama supporters shocked, angry at new tax increases

Sometimes, watching a Democrat learn something is wonderful, like seeing the family dog finally sit and stay at your command.
With President Obama back in office and his life-saving “fiscal cliff” bill jammed through Congress, the new year has brought a surprising turn of events for his sycophantic supporters.
“What happened that my Social Security withholding’s in my paycheck just went up?” a poster wrote on the liberal site DemocraticUnderground.com. “My paycheck just went down by an amount that I don’t feel comfortable with. I guarantee this decrease is gonna’ hurt me more than the increase in income taxes will hurt those making over 400 grand. What happened?”
Shocker. Democrats who supported the president’s re-election just had NO idea that his steadfast pledge to raise taxes meant that he was really going to raise taxes. They thought he planned to just hit those filthy “1 percenters,” you know, the ones who earned fortunes through their inventiveness and hard work. They thought the free ride would continue forever.
So this week, as taxes went up for millions of Americans — which Republicans predicted throughout the campaign would happen — it was fun to watch the agoggery of the left.
“I know to expect between $93 and $94 less in my paycheck on the 15th,” wrote the ironically named “RomneyLies.”
“My boyfriend has had a lot of expenses and is feeling squeezed right now, and having his paycheck shrink really didn’t help,” wrote “DemocratToTheEnd.”
“BlueIndyBlue” added: “Many of my friends didn’t realize it, either. Our payroll department didn’t do a good job of explaining the coming

    The best is yet to come as all the new taxes for
    Obama care & cost of Businesses conforming to the myriad of new Regulations recently unleashed cause inflation with stagnant wages and let's not forget the amount of Jobs that will be eliminated due to the new Tax Rate for the Job Creators.
    Wait another year and you will really hear some progressive whining!!

    I don't believe in telling people "I told you so." But "You got burned again.....and we (conservatives) told you so." Now get ready for more and worse to come, all because you airheads voted for the liar, corrupt Airhead in chief Obama! God will have his day of Judgement and his airheads are the only ones who believe Obama is his friend. Please go and work harder, so Obama can get more money to send to his Muslim Brotherhood, they are in great need for more jets, assault weapons and ammunition and don't forget the food! Obama has a reputation to uphold you know, since he is a Nobel Peace Prize Winner. They knew it would be a good subliminal message to Obama, so he would take onto a path of bringing peace, order and submission to the World. So far it is working pretty good. Obama thinks he is the savior of the World. No one knew though, that it would all be, at the expense of patriotic hard working Americans!!!!!

Change your signs liberals to "I am the 98%." Yes ....change them again!!!!!! LOL.....LOL

    Congress might have caught itself from falling over the fiscal cliff Tuesday, but the deal comes with a hefty price tag. Included in the $4 billion bill is an expiration of the payroll tax break, along with tax exemptions for everyone from the rum industry to NASCAR bigwigs. Here are five groups that are high-fiving each other over the breaks they got in the fiscal cliff deal.

    Rum Producers

    It is U.S. policy to tax rum producers like Diageo and Bacardi nearly $14 for every gallon of rum they make outside the country and sell in the U.S. But the tax is merely gimmick that gets reinvested in the Virgin Islands and the Puerto Rico in the form of aid. The alcohol industry's more than $13/per gallon kickback has been extended as part of the fiscal cliff negotiations. Pro Publica estimates the tax break gives Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands a total of $480 million in aid for rum production.

    Electric Scooter Riders

    People using electric scooters will continue to get a discount on their taxes. Drivers of two- and three-wheel plug-in electric vehicles get a tax break in the legislation. As a way to incentivize alternative energy transportation, Congress voted to continue to give 10 percent of the cost of the electric vehicle - up to $2,500 in tax credits to individuals who purch...

As a way to incentivize alternative energy transportation, Congress voted to continue to give 10 percent of the cost of the electric vehicle - up to $2,500 in tax credits to individuals who purchase plug-in wheels.

    Hollywood

    Making movies in America is big money, and Congress is doing its best to ensure the movie industry doesn't pack up and leave. Television and movie makers can continue to gross $15 million in breaks for filming in the U.S., $20 million for filming in low-income areas, an incentive for Hollywood that costs the country about $430 billion to maintain.

    Motorsport Race Track Owners

    A program that allows race track owners to deduct a total of more than $40 billion a year for their tracks, bleachers and concession stands also passed in the bill. Groups like NASCAR can continue to write off the maintenance costs of their tracks in a tax break that is similar to one amusement parks benefit from. The only catch is that the venue must have held an event on the premise sometime in the last three years.

    Algae Growers

    Congress voted to extend $59 million in tax credits for algae growers, who are trying to find a way to produce a biofuel from the plant.
