The SS tax holiday should've never happened.If you want to go with the taxes going up argument, fine, let's talk about what tax that was that went up... the Payroll tax. The stimulus from a few years ago instituted a payroll tax holiday... it was never intended that it stay permanent. The expiration of the payroll tax holiday does what? Causes taxes to go up, yes. Meaning smaller paychecks, yes. For what? Consider what the payroll tax is used for... Social Security... which everyone except nut jobs is in favor of. Moral of the story... social security has to be funded... and being defunded for the past few years was quite enough. We aren't at a near depression anymore. People favor social security, so the tax holiday was ended. Everyone knew this, and this is not a surprise at all. Even the most liberal senators were in favor of this. If you didn't know this was going to happen, then you either don't follow the news or you don't know what you're talking about.
The government has been using it as a piggy bank since LBJ.
