I sat down and did the simple math:
My Obama "payroll tax" decrease he's making so much noise about adds appox. $60 a month to my net pay
My "Obamacare" caused increase to my health insurance contribution was $63 a month in 2011, and even more additional cost in the form of increased deductibles I have to pay out of my pocket, and imy contribution is going up another $65 in 2012.
That's a total of $128 per month and climbing since "Obamacare" became law.
My bottomline is -$68 dollars in take home pay with healthcare costing me much more since Obama took office.
So I'm not spending my $60 from the "payroll tax" decrease at Wal-Mart or Target to "stimulate the economy" as Obama hopes. I'm spending it to pay my increased Obamacare cost Mr. President, and it doesn't even cover half of that cost.
So just tell me again how you are "helping the middle class"?
Mr Obama, please keep your "payroll tax" decrease and repeal "Obamacare", and spare me the Obama smoke and mirrors!
The best way you can help me is to resign.
Knowing you won't do that, in Nov 2012, Americans will tell you, "you're fired"!
For those who don't really know or understand what the "payroll tax" issue is all about. The article I linked below gives a good explanation:
