Hardly. We knew exactly what we were voting for. You just can't accept the fact that many people think taxes should go up.

I NEVER heard the President say payroll taxes weren't going back up to their normal 6.2% withholding rate.
If he DID say that, then I was wrong, but I never heard him say it.
Since these morons classify $100k-$250k as "middle class", then it'll only affect the top 15% of all wager earners.
100k-250k is middle class, depending on where you live. Also, making as little as 60k puts you in the top 10% of wave earners in this country.

It doesn't matter where you live,$100k-$250k is upper class.

The top 10% of wage earners make $125k or more, not $60k.

Only an idiot thinks Obama promised payroll taxes wouldn't go up.
Anyone who is suprised wasn't paying attention.
Ignorance has consequences.
Just so. He offered a couple years of temporary reduction, like a landlord letting you pay him lower rent until you get another job. When you go back to paying the previous amount, that's not an "increase," whatever right-wingers falsely claim.

A direct quote, from the NYT's, now you apologize:
The number that now divides the parties was introduced by Mr. Obama in 2007, in the early days of the presidential campaign, when he promised to extend the Bush tax cuts for families that made less than that amount.“I can make a firm pledge,” Mr. Obama said in September 2008.“Under my plan, no family making less than $250,000 a year will see any form of tax increase. Not your income tax, not your payroll tax, not your capital gains taxes, not any of your taxes.”

Show us where Mr. Obama has raised middle class taxes 2%, which was the claim. Prove it or apologize.
Do you see the words "payroll tax"?
Don't ever question my veracity, little fleabag, you'll always lose.
He DIDN'T increase the payroll tax, dumbass. He DECREASED it for two years. Are you seriously this stupid?

This year it's rising back to its previous level...that's not an "increase" unless you're a lying, partisan rightie trying to pretend that up is down.

Quit lying.

Ummm, obviously you missed the retirement of Justices Souter & Stevens........
In addition, Justice Ginsburg will retire sometime over the next 4 years to ensure Obama gets to name her replacement as well.
The only other liberal nearing retirement age would be Justice Breyer, and it wouldn't suprise me if he stepped down over the next 4 years as well.
The "conservatives" have no choice but to hang on until death, hoping a GOPasaur can win in 2016 or 2020.
Yes, but all he put in was two dykes that don't know their ass from a hole in the ground.

True, why wasn't the President clear on that with all of his speeches, even after the election. Many are upset due to the stupidty of believing anything Obama says as truth.
