how much has your paycheck been reduced??????

just got my first paycheck of 2k13, im down about $34 for a regular 80-hour check......

and i really can't wait til' next month when our benefits open-enrollment begins, that's when we find out how much our health insurance-premiums will get jacked up thanks to obamacare....

but the good news is that people who are sucking on the government-tit (a.k.a welfare, food stamps, ssi) will see a nice increase in their income this year.......

thanks obama for all that "hope and change".........the motto should be "hope and change for people who are too fat, lazy and pathetic to go out and work for a living while people like me pay for it".........

enjoy your steak, chicken, pot roast, chips, soda, candy, pastries and juice on your EBT food-stamp card while my shopping cart is filled with spam, baloney and hot dogs......



just had to vent

edit: forgot to add "worthless" to the fat, lazy and pathetic part...

That is my understanding....

My healthcare bump was effective 1-1-2013; about 35% higher than I paid in 2012 for more coverage.

Yeah, my pay raise goes to the SS bump rather than my pocket.

My bi-weekly pay went up about $14 per check. Everyone in the federal gov't got a pay raise, they claim its to keep us on track with the civilian sector, but if civilian pay is going down...hmm

Last Friday Barack Obama caused quite a stir with his executive order that ended the freeze on wages for Congress and federal workers, giving them what amounted to an $11 billion pay raise. Among those getting more green was Vice President Joe Biden.
On Tuesday evening, the U.S. House of Representatives approved legislation that blocked the pay raise. The Hill reports,
The House approved legislation on Tuesday that would block a pay increase for federal workers and members of Congress scheduled to take place in March.
Members voted 287-129 in favor of the bill from Rep. Mike Fitzpatrick (R-Pa.). Just two Republicans opposed the legislation, and 55 Democrats supported it.


Republicans brought the bill up under a suspension of the rules in order to allow for quicker consideration, although that move also required a two-thirds majority vote.
The bill is a response to an executive order last Friday from President Obama that would end the two-year federal worker pay freeze, and increase congressional pay by about $1,000 for each member of the House and Senate.

So my pay is still frozen in addition to getting a 2% cut like everyone else, so there was no raise. In March the most we were expecting was 1/2 of 1%. Congress would rather give up federal workers as sacrificial lambs than taking on bigger issues such as medicare, social security, 'defense', etc. Everyone in Congress needs to be voted out, 12% approval rating and they could care less. F them all.

They'd rather we fight back and forth among ourselves, Democrat vs. Republic than band together and question why they are failing us.

What else changed in your check? Please take a look again and tell us.

The IRS has not issued any new tax tables so your payroll department shouldn't have made a change.

It's Obamacare. I got a notice, too, saying my health insurance was going up.

Thanks, Obama voters.

Let me understand this clearly.
You are saying you received a notice that stated your healthcare costs were increased this year due to Obamacare?

Prove it.

I am in the unique position of not being able to figure this out for a bit... we are transitioning from a once a month pay period to twice a week starting next month. So I won't know until my pay settles out how I got screwed by this administration and it's pathetic Congress and Senate.

Commision only, pay changes weekly. So luckly while I see how much they steal from me weekly I can't count on my pay check ever being the same.

The 2% is not a tax increase, it's going back to what it always was. I got a whole 1.7% more but my heath insurance went up a little. I'm retired though.
