Remember this?
Obama demanding over and over again that every American must pay their fair share.

But that was sooo last week.

Now we find out that under the new fiscal cliff plan workers making less than $30,000 a year will take a bigger hit than those making $500,000 a year.
The Daily Mail reported:

Middle-class workers will take a bigger hit to their income proportionately than those earning between $200,000 and $500,000 under the new fiscal cliff deal, according to the nonpartisan Tax Policy Center.

Earners in the latter group will pay an average 1.3 percent more – or an additional $2,711 – in taxes this year, while workers making between $30,000 and $200,000 will see their paychecks shrink by as much as 1.7 percent – or up to $1,784 – the D.C.-based think tank reported.

Overall, nearly 80 percent of households will pay more money to the federal government as a result of the fiscal cliff deal.

‘The economy needs a stimulus, but under the agreement, taxes will go up in 2013 relative to 2012 – not only on high-income households, as widely discussed, but also on every working man and woman in the country, via the end of the payroll tax cut,’ said William G. Gale, co-director of the Tax Policy Center.

‘For most households, the payroll tax takes a far bigger bite than the income tax does, and the payroll tax cut therefore – as [the Congressional Budget Office] and others have shown – was a more effective stimulus than income tax cuts were, because the payroll tax cuts hit lower in the income distribution and hence were more likely to be spent,’ he added.

It figures.

  1. Liberal politicians use the term “fair share” to pacify those who pay little or no income taxes (i.e. much of their voter base).

    In reality, using the term “fair share” is an absolutely lie in regard to the US income tax code. There is nothing “fair” or equitable about forcing certain people to pay higher income taxes while, at the same time, allowing huge numbers of others to pay little or no income taxes.

    Note:

    The definition of the term “fair” is “free from bias, dishonesty, or injustice.”

    The definition of the term “equitable” is “dealing fairly and equally with all concerned.”

    The definition of the term “share” is “an equitable portion.”

    Liberals who make fraudulent use of the term “fair share” further serve to define the lies and hypocrisy found in the propaganda they spew.

  2. Booo Hooo…Republicans should have walked away and let all taxes rise. People want the omnipotent titanic sugar daddy nanny state , but they don’t want to pay for it. It is grossly immoral to take even a penny out of paychecks of people earning as little as $10 an hour…especially when they are paying into outdated busted failed communist welfare programs funding the grotesque spoiled lifestyles of the political statist class. Unfortunately not enough hamburger flippers are voting for freedom. The ” working poor ” are sold on the lies and schemes of big bully brother government. So make them pay more for it until they see the light.

  3. I’m thinking of making out my check to the IRS in the amount of “MY FAIR SHARE” this year to see if they can cash it.

  4. Every one should pay their fair share? Everyone who gets a welfare check should pay 6% of it back to Obama. It’s their fair share.

  5. It’s come to this

    Her musings were suddenly interrupted when her date asked a decidedly unromantic question: “What’s your credit score?”
    “It was as if the music stopped,” Ms. LaShawn, 31, said, recalling how the date this year went so wrong so quickly after she tried to answer his question honestly. “It was really awkward because he kept telling me that I was the perfect girl for him, but that a low credit score was his deal-breaker.”

    If the US government was trying to date, it would be destined to be a spinster.

  6. this fiscal cliff worked out the same as the tax deal works out every year more money for the politican less money for the worker. another step on the road to the total enslavement of the american people by the american politican.

  7. This statement needs to be adjusted imho:

    Overall, nearly 80 percent of households will pay more money to the federal government as a result of the fiscal cliff deal.

    IT SHOULD READ:

    Overall, nearly 80 percent of WORKING households will pay more money to the federal government as a result of the fiscal cliff deal.

    At this point, I am seriously considering to stop paying my mortgage and wait for fricking handouts too. It seems slovenly behavior is what is rewarded where hard work and paying your bills on time is a thing of the past.

    Too all you fricking morons that voted for the color of skin instead of content of character, PISS OFF.

  8. from Bloomberg News:

    ‘Barack Obama is the first president in more than five decades to win at least 51 percent of the national popular vote twice, according to a revised vote count in New York eight weeks after the Nov. 6 election.

    . . .

    Obama is the first president to achieve the 51 percent mark in two elections since Republican Dwight D. Eisenhower, who did it in 1952 and 1956 . . .

    Obama, 51, benefited from political factors that included a lack of serious opposition for his party’s nomination or from well-known third-party challengers, and an absence of social unrest, scandal or foreign-policy disasters during his first term, said Allan Lichtman, a history professor at American University in Washington.

    “Under the big picture, this was an entirely predictable election outcome,” Lichtman said.’

  9. Obama and all of DC is a bunch of liars and crooks.

  10. Quote:
    “Obama, 51, benefited from political factors that included a lack of serious opposition for his party’s nomination or from well-known third-party challengers, and an absence of social unrest, scandal or foreign-policy disasters during his first term…”

    Ya, lets ignore one one of the worst economic recession/depressions during the last 100 years while we talk about a so-called lack of “social unrest, scandal or foreign-policy disasters.”

    This is not to mention the fact that Obama’s Benghazi scandal and his facilitation of the Muslim Brotherhood foreign-policy disaster was completely covered-up and/or ignored by most of the MSM (and RINO Romney).

    Quote:
    “‘Barack Obama is the first president in more than five decades to win at least 51 percent of the national popular vote twice, according to a revised vote count in New York eight weeks after the Nov. 6 election.”

    This only goes to show you what widespread and systematic voter fraud can do for your political party.

    The often used “vote early, vote often” Democratic campaign slogan really worked like a charm this past Presidential election.

  11. @ Finncrisp:

    I was wondering if the new Obamacare tax would be put in a lockbox? Or just go into general funds as well. What a nightmare.

  12. everytime you see a volt or a leaf or a some hybrid you and we are paying for part of the twerp-mobile

    Reaganite, EVERYONE will be paying one way or another. People’s lack of understanding of economics never ceases to amaze me.

  14. Sure “everybody” will your Highness with the exception of your literary and Hollywood Courtiers!

    Do the names Babs, Terry Mcmillan, Michael (I want more) Moore, Gwenyth Paltrow, JCO (I am sorry, I hate making fun of people for their looks, but geez, with all that money she has, I swear she looks like a relative of the MARX brothers!) and the director who will soon be telling movies goers, “The Dark Side made me do it!” George Lucas ring any bells?
    (See his latest anti tax benefit- for himself and his millions! for more info. or Michelle malkin)

  15. How about the 47% not paying any net taxes whatsoever, where’s their contribution, numbnuts?

    How can 47% not pay any taxes, if “nearly 80 percent of households will pay more money” due to the payroll tax increase. Or are payroll taxes only considered taxes when you can use an increase against Obama, but are not considered taxes when it comes to who pays and who does not?

    comprehension is key..

    80% of households who PAY TAXES will pay
    more due to the 47% who NOT PAY TAXES..

  17. Wow all you guys have hit it right between the eyes. Why can’t people see this? I get mad when everyone calls SS “entitlement”. WE pay for SS and we pay again when we start receiving and again at tax filing. My medicare cost me $115. a month plus cost of supplemental insurance that doesn’t pay a dime on regular visits. Since we have private ins why aren’t they required to pay FIRST ans medicare pay the rest. Why isn’t education free to everyone so we can educate our children. Why doesn’t the gobberment ( intentional) require the people. that aren’t handicapped. get a job and supplement their income to a living wage. Its is not us seniors that have worked all their lives and paid in that are to blame it the alcoholics,welfare generations, drug addicts, and all the amorphous disabilities and endless reasons to suck the gov tit that are draining us dry. I could go on for hrs.

    comprehension is key..

    So is knowlege of which you speak. The “47%” is the portion who do not pay income tax. Payroll tax reaches a bit further. Anyone that earns a wage pays that, even if they pay no income tax. In fact, over half of that 47%, still pay the payroll tax. All in all, taxes will increase on 77% of all households.

  19. Shadow, since you obviously haven’t been paying attention ….

    PAYROLL TAX is Social Security WITHHOLDING. It is not SUPPOSED to be a TAX… It is supposed to be YOUR MONEY, put into a dedicated TRUST, for your retirement. Everybody needs to be paying in to the fund, because supposedly, EVERYBODY will be drawing benefits from that trust when they retire.

    INCOME tax is a TAX. Income taxes are SUPPOSED to be the mechanism through which we fund the Constitutionally specified functions of the federal government. EVERYBODY needs to be paying at least SOMETHING in the way of income taxes too, because we ALL have a responsibility to pay for our share of the services the federal government is CONSTITUTIONALLY required to provide to us.

    We’ve foolishly allowed the criminals in Washington to raid the Social Security trust fund, and dump OUR money into the general fund in order to fund all sorts of senseless unconstitutional nonsense, nonsense that selfish idiots like YOU think big government should be doing for you, for FREE. It’s a crime of epic proportions … a crime made possible by the stunning ignorance of people like you, who have no problem with giving our politicians unlimited power to tax and spend … unlimited power to seize money from a small group of successful people, and redistribute it to the growing masses of lazy, indigent people like yourself, in exchange for your votes. You’re too stupid to realize that eventually, we are going to run out of “other people’s money” and the whole scheme is going to come crashing down around us. That day is coming soon, and people like me, who have seen this day coming for years and done everything in our power to prevent it, are sick and tired of trying to educate dopes like you about the dangers of ignoring the Constitution. If you want to stick your head in the sand and let our politicians destroy this country, fine, but don’t expect to receive a lot of sympathy or support from the rest of us when the hammer finally falls and you find yourself starving in the street.

    People like you, who are too stupid to face the realities of history and human nature, or educate yourselves in Constitutional law simply don’t deserve to be living in a free society. And very soon, if things keep going the way they are, you won’t be.
