16. I agree.....

While the politicians are thumping their chest about raising taxes on the rich, there is nothing being said about the fact that all of the average workers are losing an additional 2% of their income to the payroll tax. That tax increase has gone un-noticed by those who were completely focused on taxing the rich.

What should have been done was to leave the payroll tax "as is" and then move the cap to $250,000. You might have even been able to lower the rate a bit if you did that. Instead, the politicians have spoon fed us what we wanted and stuck a knife in our back as we cheered them on.
