By allowing the taxes to rise, Congress can shore up the finances of two politically popular programs, she said. The main Social Security trust fund is projected to run out of money in 2035, and the Medicare trust fund is expected to run dry in 2024.

“The payroll tax cut was put in as a short-term idea when the economy was still worse than it is,” Hamilton said.“It was never intended, obviously, to last forever.... It was a fairly easy (issue) for them to find consensus on.”

That doesn’t make it go down any easier for most taxpayers.

Anhaiser, for one, isn’t convinced Social Security will be around when he reaches retirement age, even with the extra tax revenue. The 36-year-old said he might reduce his 401(k) contribution to compensate for the loss in take-home pay.

The nonpartisan Tax Policy Center estimated that 77 percent of U.S. households are affected by the higher payroll taxes.

“For someone making $50,000 a year, it’s a thousand bucks — that’s significant,” said Perry Ghilarducci, a principal at Auvant Ltd. certified public accountants in Sacramento, Calif.

The higher taxes follow years of income stagnation for most Americans.

“I’m just starting to see people get hired again, get interviews,(but) it’s definitely not back to where it was,” said Rosanna Venturini of ClearPoint Credit Counseling Solutions in the Sacramento area.“People are having to take jobs that pay less than what they were used to making.”

Wages have grown only about 2 percent a year on average since 2009, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Most years, pay raises for many Americans have barely kept up with inflation.

My bad. Just heard the figure $20 million as the projected cost from the CBO. Wasn't sure how long it would take to get there.

We might even get there before Obamacare kicks in at this rate.

But, then again, wasn't Obamacare designed to bankrupt the nation and a single payer system introduced by the state as the solution to the problem?

Pretty sure that's correct, right?

Imagine supporting a president who wants you to be ashamed of your country, who wants to fundamentally change America?

If it weren't for low information mouth breathers like Dave and Faketime, the fringe left wouldn't be running the country (into the ground.) They actually believe the progressive agenda is what the majority wants.

So, apparently, you, like flack, believe the government should not have stepped in to regulate and oversee Fannie and Freddie before it was too late?

Because we differ greatly on the government's role to protect consumers from this kind of reckless greed otherwise.

The teachings explicitly build on the pre-Sinai episode of manna (Exodus 16), in which the wandering Israelites are instructed to take as much of the divinely given foodstuff as they need, neither too much nor too little, and are at the same time given the command to observe the Sabbath day of rest. Both commands -- "Take what you need, no more," and "Balance work with rest" -- are the beginning of subversive unraveling of the world of empire under which the Israelites had been enslaved and oppressed. They point to the new, holy social order that is being birthed.

Obama believes the reason for his existence on this planet is to fundamentally transform this nation into his vision of a one-party system and a Marxist/socialist ideology.
The only thing that's missing is the power elite confiscating personal property to benefit the state.
Hopefully, Americans will have snapped out of it and wised up before they succeed. And liberals such as yourself will become another footnote in history as being on the wrong side of it.
