Obamacare was labeled as a tax by the Supreme Court, not Obama.<quoted text>
You didnt account for Obamacare taxes or payroll taxes did you? Typical.
Thr two percent income tax increase is due to the expiration of the payroll tax holiday, initiated as a two year economic boost for workers and was always scheduled to expire on Jan 1 2013.
Let me give you a little free political advice for you and your rightwing party ...
The smartest move Republicans could make in order to reduce the speed inwhich they as a party are becoming instinct would be to stop dragging down policy and instead get in front of these top issues. In hindsight, wouldn't Republicans have been MUCH better off in the eyes of American voters had they been first to come out after Sandy Hook and simply said, "We as a Nation must take a new look at gun control", rather than wait 5 days on the NRA to give them a direction?
Republicans in Washington don't know what to do about any issue until they are told by their filthy rich sponsors what to do. The nation is becoming more and more absatined from the extremism of the bought and paid for righties in D.C.
2014 will be a very interesting election. Even some Republicans are trending towards voting for Dems over Republicans because they fear the lefties less.
