Barack Obama sticks it to poor people.

Under the new fiscal cliff plan workers making less than $30,000 a year will take a bigger hit than those making $500,000 a year.
The Daily Mail reported:

Middle-class workers will take a bigger hit to their income proportionately than those earning between $200,000 and $500,000 under the new fiscal cliff deal, according to the nonpartisan Tax Policy Center.

Earners in the latter group will pay an average 1.3 percent more – or an additional $2,711 – in taxes this year, while workers making between $30,000 and $200,000 will see their paychecks shrink by as much as 1.7 percent – or up to $1,784 – the D.C.-based think tank reported.

Overall, nearly 80 percent of households will pay more money to the federal government as a result of the fiscal cliff deal.

    Hey, but we all get free condoms like the big one hanging over the heads of those happy doughnut dunkers. Drink your free coffee and shut up about it like a good little worker.

    When prices at the pump for gasoline decline more than 5 cents, the liberal media is quick to tell everyone it equates to savings, hence a stimulus for all Americans.

    What you’re not likely to hear is when prices at the pump, at the grocery store, and every where else increase it’s called inflation. Inflation is the same as a cost of living increase and has the same result — on 100% of Americans, tax payers or not — as an increased tax.

    Yet, the “little people” don’t complain about inflation, which is often more than a few percentage increase in tax, mainly because it’s considered a stealth tax, and oddly it’s the FAIREST tax around because everyone pays the same rate.

    Does someone on the government dole complain about what they really lose in pay: inflation? Or do they complain about the money that other people EARNED and then lost through taxes and inflation?

    Gee, it would seem the progressive tax code is bullshit.

    And there’s another tax that effects the poor dis-proportionally, it’s called inflation. Obama’s War on the Working Poor…

    Nothing’s free. It won’t be long till the gov’t starts to “comb them out” into the slave labor camps of the giant corporations that backed the Demonrats.

    Hitler destroyed the middle class, individual handicrafters, sole proprietors, and the like, and then set up “labor exchanges” headed by party officials who made “labor units” available to the combines. Wages and prices were fixed. All in an effort to “rationalize” that pesky, confusing liberty shit.

    To heck with the poor people, let’s get to the important shit: with the new Tax Deal, will Warren Buffett be paying more tax than his Secretary or not? Inquiring minds want to know!
