Just got a call from one of my employees. Today was payday. Her question - Why did my paycheck get smaller? My answer, that is the hope and change you voted for. Remember the promise, no tax increase on folks under $250k per year? Well, that was a load of horse-hockey. The withholding taxes increased on a lady making $32k per year by 6 bucks per paycheck. I told her to hold on, it's just going to get worse.
