My check was $22 lighter this week. Can't wait for the rest of the "change" to roll on in.

The only way that can happen successfully is if YOU let them. If you're happy taking whatever line your employer feeds you without ever questioning or asking that they "show you the math", then that's on you, and you'll continue to buy whatever line you're fed.

If you TRULY want to understand, then ask. Not me, not anyone else here. Ask your boss, your HR rep, or whatever equivalent you have.

No, see, I understand this completely. It's all about what YOU perceive, and you won't allow anything like pesky facts to get in your way.

And what will happen - I know, because I've dealt with the calls for YEARS - is when you get a hospital bill and have to pay WAY more than you thought, you'll be on here posting threads about how the evil insurance company is screwing you over.

But, hey, whatever helps ya sleep at night.

Well, I got a raise just before the new year - about $80 per paycheck.(80 hrs.)
We just went with a new company for insurance (TriNet).

It looks to be about a wash but I probably am Down $20-40 a paycheck.

Wait until the obamacare kicks in full effect in 14, these idiots who voted for him for the "free" stuff to include health care have no idea that they will have to either buy a plan or be fined. The fine will come when the IRS keeps their refund for not buying a plan. Now I know your thinking if these dims not work how are they getting a refund...they do and dependant upon how many times they have made more of their type (aka kids) just helps them get MO MONEY. SO when they don't get that check cuz they have not bought their health care I think they will riot in the streets.....at least they get to keep their phone http://youtu.be/Ax-2i71bqGw

The reform bill has nothing to do with getting anything for free. It says either employers have to provide insurance (at whatever portion they feel the employee should pay) or people have to BUY insurance of their own.




I don't care if you hate the ACA plan, I don't care if you think it's the most abominable thing that's ever come out of Washington. I'm not trying to change your mind and make you embrace the law. But for God's sake, at least try to educate yourselves on what it is you're hating/debating/decrying.
*Note: This last paragraph is not specifically targeted at gators; this is intended for anyone that wants to ***** about the healthcare reform law. Complain all you want, but please KNOW what you're complaining about.

He never said the bill had anything to do with getting free stuff only that the people who where expecting free stuff to include health care are going to be surprised.

Actually the decrease in your net was most likely all the restoration of the SS tax to 6.2% from 4.2.

They had lowered it as economic relief during the recession. Recession still isnt really over, but it was time to move it back.

Its actually a good thing: The SS tax is one thing that everyone has to pay. The bottom 47%, which pay net-zero/nada-nothing, at least paid in SS when they went to their shift at whatever pathetic job they had.

Meanwhile, SS continues to pay out whatever it pays out, and what it doesn't get from withholding gets made up by money from the general fund, essentially taxes on the only people who really pay them, the other 53%. Meaning if the bottom feeders don't pay in something, they're subsidized by the actual taxpayers on their eventual SS benefits.

At least when everyone got pushed back up to 6.2%, the welfare crew that gets money funneled back in ATDC and other frauds like EITC actually have some money contributed and are actually paying something into the system.

Not much of a door prize, I know, but it was really letting the freeloaders even more off the hook.

What I find hillarious about this thread is if anyone had asked all you guys to post your paycheck there would have been a firestorm.
Yet:

Everyone that has posted their reduction has in effect posted their pay. All it takes is the simplest algebra ever...

My bi-weekly insurance premium went from $38 to $150. I work for the Michigan Dept. of Corrections. That is just a paycut with a different mask.

I read this on Al Azeera. They have some pretty good news coverage - unlike most American outlets...

Anyway - I thought it was interesting.

If you work 20 hours of overtime in every pay period and get used to that for 3, 4, 5 months, when the overtime stops, did you just receive a pay cut?

It increased when you started receiving overtime. It decreased once you quit working OT. What's your point?

That's where you're wrong. You were taking home more money with overtime, but you did NOT have a pay increase. Therefore, when the overtime ended, you did NOT suffer any pay decrease.

The SSI tax reduction, when it was passed by Congress, was temporary (like the overtime). It has ended and pay went back to normal (Like when the overtime ended).



Show me, if you would please, where all the threads were two years ago with the jumping up and down because "my paycheck went UP by $25 dollars this week! WOOHOO!!!!"

If you take a temporary change as the "new normal", whatever the subject, then you're intentionally deluding yourself.

Taxes went up, it was a tax increase.

Doesn't matter if it was temporary or not.

When it went down, it was a tax decrease.

Doesn't matter if it was temporary or not.

Always more taxes without them making one dam cut.

This crap is getting old.

Haha. Do I need to get hand puppets so that you may better understand this topic?

OT means more take home pay... Which means you increased the amount of money you receive in a paycheck. When you quit working OT you take home less pay... Which means you decreased the amount of money you receive in a paycheck.

Understand...?

Of course I understand. But do YOU grasp that you would be wrong if you said you got a pay cut?
