I just got paid and noticed that my take home pay was about $60 less than last pay period. I'm on an every two week pay basis so each pay period is 80 hours. I compared pay statements and the Federal withholding increased by $50 and the Fed MED/EE and OASDI/EE both went up a couple dollars. Last December when one of the "Bush tax breaks" was set to expire there was a great deal of hoopla about it. If anything was said this time it was buried beneat the manure pile of campaign commercials.
