Half Your Paycheck To The Government In 2013

The president is convinced Americans need to pay more in taxes. Here's what he said yesterday.

“I think everybody out there understood that was an important debate and the majority of voters agreed with me. By the way, more voters agreed with me on this issue than voted for me! So we've got a clear majority of the American people who recognize if we're gonna be serious about deficit reduction we gotta do it in a balanced way."

But let me tell you, come January 1, you're probably not going to be happy with the amount of taxes you're paying. That's because it's not just Federal taxes that you pay.

A middle class taxpayer pays 25% percent of their income in Federal Income Tax. Sounds, ok?

Then there is the Federal Social Security and Medicare payroll tax of 13.3%. You pick up 5.65% while you're employer pays 7.65%. Add them up and that's 38.3% of middle class family incomes going to Uncle Sam. But we aren't done, not by a long shot.

According to the Tax Foundation, the average state's income tax rate on the middle class is 4.82%. Of course, some states have it and some don't, but we're taking an average here.

Now the total: 43.12% of middle class income to taxes.

Oh, and I almost forgot, unless congress makes a move, Federal Income taxes go to 28% for middle income folks next year as the Bush tax cuts expire.

Neither party has said they want that to happen, but in Washington, well, you never know.

Also the payroll tax for those folks will go to 15.3% from 13.3%percent.

Did I mention state, property, corporate, and excise taxes? No?

All told, next year, total taxes will go to almost 50% for the middle class; the very group that the president says he wants to protect. That means 50 cents out of every dollar earned has to go to the government. Half of everything will go to an entity that didn't earn that money, and shouldn't be entitled to all that dough.

Unbelievable. You think most Americans agree that's fair?

I don't think so

63 % of obama voters are on welfare..

What does that tell you about whos money obama wants and who he promised to give it too after YOU work for it.

There was NO big democratic inspiration all the sudden where all the welfare people suddenly got informed about anything.Like being informed enough to actually make a difference for Americas prosperity...All they heard was FREE MONEY TO VOTE FOR OBAMA..

63 % OF OBAMA VOTERS ARE ON WELFARE..

Not including Social security seniors or social security Disability..[Those are the people that are actually entitled because they all had jobs to get SSI or SSD]...

They THE 63% voted for obama NOT because obama promised them jobs and futures..

They voted for obama because obama promised them they would NOT HAVE TO WORK FOR A LIVING..

What if all the working people just quit and go on welfare ??

And not pay taxes..Obama wants to suck the life out of America I say we should just help him..

I almost clicked on one of your links but luckily I noticed the Foxthis & foxthat. No wonder this sounded delusional. You continue on your "Fox" trail and I will find my information from unaffiliated sources.

It is impossible to answer a question that has no veracity. Therefore I must conclude that this is no more than another campaign attempt.
The problem is that the campaign is over.

WE should focus on putting more people back to work. This will create more tax revenue too.

I`ve decided to stop paying taxes. The Constitution clearly states its illegal to tax a sovereign citizen. Maybe that should be what most working people should do, become sovereign. You would be amazed at the things you can get out of becoming sovereign.

Pay no taxes
Pay no Obamacare
Pay no property tax
Do not have to have drivers license
Do not have to obtain insurance for your vehicle.
Cannot be sued for anything.

Sounds like a win win to me.

I'm asking you to be objective and pit Obama against other Presidents and figure out why he should be HATED??? Disliked, don't agree, lots of natural things but why HATE???

That is what I figured since there is no other reason possible. I would probably be considered a WASP. I said that for those who might think I am a reverse bigot:):)

Mathematical reasoning for a complex issue;

1. If you make less than $250k per year - no changes in taxes.

2. If you make more than $250K per year,... add 3.5% to exceeding amount of earnings.

Explained. If you make more than $250K, every ten thousand dollars cost you an additional $300 bucks.

Point of interest - Millionaires wear shirts that cost $300, approximately the same amount an average middle class worker brings home per week post taxes.

Throw some logic in the mix and you have people on the Republican side demanding that school lunch programs be cut in order that they don't have to give up $300 per 10k after they already cleared $250.

The choice is a no-brainer.

I dont care what color you are Karl. You are still an idiot.

Are you mad because you never worked and paid taxes and paid in to the American Social security system to have Disability if you got disabled ?

You seem to have a chip on your shoulder about Disabled people.

I can see this site is stuffed with right wing liberal haters. I really wish I could find a place where adults talk. There are guidelines that make for a good discussion but few know them and even less use them.
Should someone wish to have an intelligent conversation about this topic please let me know.

My stand on this issue is that it has no foundation of truth or fact. The tax issue is one that everyone should be well aware of by now.
This 2% highest pay tax thing started clear back with Reagan (Reaganomics) and has gone back and forth since then.
Placing State tax into the issue and stating that Obama is responsible is ludicrous. Basic USA Government 101 taught in elementary school explains my statement.
As for any federal tax increas on any other than the top 2% Obama has made that as clear as it can be made. He does not want it!!! Please show me where he has stated otherwise.

What a complete Moron you are ,just one example and that is Obama care is a Tax( according to the Supreme Court ) it is going to be levied on everyone in the middle class or poor.
Unless you are exempted by being a member of a democrat supporting union.

Alabama was the first state to have a rightwing nutcase file a petition for secession after the election.

Here's what people in the deep south doesn't savvy.

For every tax dollar paid into the Federal Government from the state of Alabama per year,..... the state of Alabama gets $1.71 back in federal funding per year.

Who are the idiots?

Yet Democrats insist on the tops five percent of persons that pay the MAJORITY of taxes, to pay more. They are already paying MORE than their fair share, yet they want more, and more. When does it stop? When citizens are paying all their income to the government?

Dems and Repubs alike need to realize we can`t tax our way out of the problem they have created. They need to stop and think about a few questions that i have,

Why is it my, and everyone else`s responsibility to keep up a Senator, or Representative, or even the President after they are out of office?

Why,if you are a public servant, do you make a six figure salary for sitting on your ass and only trying to work a third of the year?

Why is it my responsibility to pay for their security, healthcare, etc, and give them a retirement package, even if they serve only one term?

They carefully keep watch on the citizens, and make rules for them to follow, but who is keeping watch on them?

Ill bet obama couldn't even hire a gardener much less create jobs in an entire country.
Im just glad I can create my own jobs..Most people my age have multiple trades and will be able to work on our own when the Rich people pull out of America because of being attacked for being successful.
Welfare people/obama supporters dont care about the tax issue because they dona pay any.
