Reality Slams Obama Supporters' Paychecks

Topics:

Barack Obama supporters, along with the rest of us who aren't, are now witnessing their paychecks shrink in the wake of tax increases. And they're not happy campers.

Joseph Curl provides numerous examples of the liberal anger and angst over the fact that Obama's steadfast pledge to raise taxes meant that he was really going to raise taxes.

[...] They thought he planned to just hit those filthy "1 percenters," you know, the ones who earned fortunes through their inventiveness and hard work. They thought the free ride would continue forever.

So this week, as taxes went up for millions of Americans -- which Republicans predicted throughout the campaign would happen -- it was fun to watch the agoggery of the left.

Keep reading. If it weren't for the fact that Obama's opponents were suffering the same angst and financial difficulties as the liberals that supported him, their torment would be laughable.

How laughable?

As Curl points out in his piece, according to the nonpartisan Tax Policy Center in Washington more than 80 percent of households with incomes between $50,000 and $200,000 are paying higher taxes. Among the households facing higher taxes, the average increase would be $1,635. Hilariously, the tax burden will rise more for someone making $30,000 a year (1.7 percent) than it does for someone earning $500,000 annually (1.3 percent):

A whole new wave of Obama supporters still don’t even know: They'll get their first 2013 paychecks on the 15th of the month. So when you're shooting the breeze in the lunchroom with your grumbling co-workers on the 16th, just ask them, "Who'd you vote for in November?" When they say Mr. Obama, just tell them: "Well, you got what you voted for. You did know he was going to raise taxes, right?"

The looks on their faces will be priceless.
