Anyone else upset?
Anyone else upset about how the news media is sweeping under the rug the expiration of the payroll tax holiday? It seems that politicians said they were against raising taxes on the middle class, but by not acting they let payroll taxes revert back to 6.2% instead of 4.2%. Even Obama said "I'm glad we avoided income tax going up." I get that payroll and income tax are technically two things, but at the end of the day it's another 2% coming out of your paycheck, which in effect is a tax hike.
