Schadenfreude-Inducing Question of the Day


This is hilarious. A registered user at Democratic Underground who has posted many times there in the past, who is presumably an ardent Obama supporter, is a little uneasy. Hey, wasn’t it only the rich who were supposed to take it in the shorts?


If you can’t read that, it says “What happened that my SS withholdings in my paycheck just went up. My paycheck just went down by an amount that I don’t feel comfortable with. I guarantee this decrease will hurt me more than the increase in income taxes will hurt those making over $400,000.”

Excuse me, but…


There will be many more like her who didn’t see this coming. I won’t feel bad for them in the least because they were the same glassy-eyed freebie zombies who ushered in the era of Hope & Change — twice — but it is a pity that they had to drag everybody else’s paycheck down with them.
