Since November of 2008, I have been saying that the economic policies of Barack Hussein Obama would hurt the low income earners the most.

He doesn't give a sh*t about poor people - other than to use them to further his Marxist agenda. Poor people are nothing more than tools that Obama is using to destroy the greatest economic engine this world has ever know, Capitalism.

Control the little people. Make them dependent upon government for their survival. Capture 51% of the voters and you can "fundamentally change" the United States of America forever.

Congratulations to the low information voters. You have cut your won throats.

Recent reports forecast lower spending for this year, anticipating that the restored payroll tax will impact consumers' wallets, especially low-income earners. Wal-Mart is adjusting its strategy.

New York

Retailers are preparing for a triple whammy as the restoration of the payroll tax, surging gas prices, and stagnant employment and wages take a bite out of consumers’ disposable income, leaving them with less cash to spend on clothing, groceries, and eating out.

As a result, more than three years after the recession officially ended, American consumers might be preparing to downshift again, if only slightly, with low-income consumers hit the hardest. Sensing consumer trepidation, retailers are scrambling to adjust.

Retailers, restaurants, and consumer goods companies like Wal-Mart are lowering sales forecasts and adjusting marketing campaigns ahead of expectations that consumers will slash spending, the Wall Street Journal reports.

In a survey released Thursday, the National Retail Federation (NRF) said some 46 percent of consumers plan to spend less as a result of the payroll tax increase. One-third said they will reduce dining out and one-quarter will spend less on “little luxuries,” like manicures and trips to coffee shops.

“A smaller paycheck due to the fiscal cliff deal early last month, higher gas prices, low consumer confidence and ongoing uncertainty about our nation’s fiscal health is negatively impacting consumers and businesses across the country,” Matthew Shay, president and CEO of the NRF, said in a statement.

Originally enacted in December 2010 to help taxpayers weather the recession and to spur economic activity, the payroll tax cut expired Jan. 1 of this year. The restoration of the tax effectively raised the rate from 4.2 percent in 2012 to 6.2 percent in 2013, shaving 2 percent from consumers’ take-home pay.

That means Americans making $50,000 a year will pay $83 more in taxes each month, almost $1,000 more each year. Those making $75,000 will pay $125 more each month, or $1,500 more each year. As retailers see it, that’s $1,500 less a consumer has to spend on groceries, household goods, and dining out.

Multiply that by 153.6 million people in the labor force and retailers start to panic. According to an estimate by Citigroup, the expiration of the payroll tax cut will move $110 billion out of consumers’ pockets.

For high-end consumers, the payroll tax may not change a thing, and for many middle-income consumers, it will likely result in only a subtle shift. But the impact is most likely to be felt among low-income consumers and the businesses they tend to frequent, like Wal-Mart.

Since I know that one of the low information voters will come forth and try to divert from the topic of Obama's destruction of the American economy, let me correct the spelling error above.

Mr Neither proves how little wingnuts know about how the government operates. The president can sign or veto a bill, he can not add the payroll tax cuts, that the GOP intentionally left out, to a bill.

Are you saying the tax increases are not part of Obama's plan? Yeah, right.

Obama is simply using the poor. He does not give a sh*t about anyone unless they can further his Marxist agenda.

Why are you here?
Not "here" as in On Topix being an iddiiot 16/7 365, but why are you here on this Astral Plane?
Have you ever even asked yourself why you choose to stay such a Despicable Human Being?
If you have, what answer did you give yourself that has kept you from acknowledging the waste of oxygen that you are.....What keeps you from going to the light.
You gotta be miserable, the Shaat you spew reveals what you are to all the are cursed to cross your path. It must in some way register with you someplace in that sick mind that you are irreparably damaged and there is no redemption here on Earth.
Nothing, That is what you are nothing!
At least a Boil on someones azz serves a purpose, it lets the person know that there is a problem. You are a Boil on the azz of Humanity, but we all know what the problem is.....EXCEPT YOU!

Sara Palin, Rules for Teabaggers, pub. 1999
RULE 118: When posting on public forums, create multiple posting names, each with a different location (see "Proxy Servers" for more info on this) and their own distinct "personality".
Then each of your personalities can comment on each topic, making it appear that others support your extremist views.
Plus you can have extra fun and have your various personalities "talk" to each other and carry on virtual conversations with each other. This works especially well if you are like most teabaggers and don't have many friends.[Thanks to our friend in North St. Paul Minnesota for this tip).

To illustrate. Slewsie, The Resident Child Abuser created "Bunches of Idiots" about 3 weeks after she was lambasted for her "slip", when she revealed that she;

"Likes Little BOI's",

"Likes to bend Little BOI's over"

"Likes to Break Little BOI's"

BUT! Topix allows the Sociopath a forum for her depravity?

This is a classic example of liberalism. They use this facade to pretend they care about poor people and that poor people are on the liberals side. In fact missisippi is one of the poorest states in america yet it is very conservative. They do the same with gays and blacks. Just like i said before:obama is like a child molester because he lures small minded children into vans with a bag of goodies and then turns evil.
