1. If I was fortunate enough to have a paycheck

I would be happy about it going back up. Those few dollars a week are my only chance at a meager retirement.

3. Get mad everybody!

The right wing blogs need examples of Democrats mad about "Obama's" "tax" "increase."

Make sure you get nice and indignant!

5. LOL. Isn't the OP about a week late?

Actually mine didn't change at all because I reduced the amount taken out for the company's medical flex plan by 10%.

Can the low count poster also enlighten us as to how he uses his AR 15 to feed his family?

9. There were about two weeks in early to mid-October when many of our - ahem - friends

thought they would be getting their gloat on post election.

Lots of joins then.

Funny to see them now.

7. 120 Cut on maint. service (hope doesn't cost hours for someone else) but I can't afford to continue

to pay. I know the deduction was temporary, but with prices going up so quickly and salaries remaining the same, no other choice but to cut on services or spending... So indeed right know and for the time being it will hurt the economy, already has a reflection on consumer confidence...

13. How many times will you quote Bloomberg today?

This is the second time you've cited the so-called Bloomberg Consumer Confidence crap report.

This is not a tax increase. This is all of us not getting another extension of a tax holiday courtesy of... GASP... President Obama.

Have a nice day!

12. I don't get paid until tomorrow, but got a raise that will show up for first time

First raise in four years, sorry, "salary adjustment" LOL...

so that 6% should offset some of the 2%

17. Don't get a paycheck--self-employed

And if you don't follow the news and are surprised that the "payroll tax cut" was disappearing...you should probably look to a better news source.

18. I got a 2% raise before the end of the year

So I come out slightly ahead at + $0.10/hour by my calculations.
