Progressives waking up to New Year’s economic hangover

Legal Insurrection -

I don’t normally prowl the threads of Democratic Underground, but was interested to read comments regarding one of their complaints about an increase in social security withholding tax after Rush Limbaugh remarked on it today.

Surprise! The author self-deleted the comment.

I guess being featured on Limbaugh’s program was more shame that NCTraveler could bear. However, she is not the only one shocked to discover that they are counted among the “1 percent”, the “wealthy”, and the “privileged” by Team Obama today.

Twitchy has a compendium of tweets that show a complete lack of understanding about the impact of progressive policies and federal fiscal irresponsibility on the individual level. My personal favorites are from the employers who have to hand out the smaller paychecks to their unhappy employees:

    Just tell them “elections have consequences”. And then ask if Warren Buffet is paying more taxes than his Secretary or not?

    One reason we fought for freedom was because of “taxation without representation”. This libtard has been represented by the santa clause party that built its self on “representation without taxation…and screw thy neighbor by letting them pay your way”. Welcome to the party bonehead

    Claudia, yes they will. About half of the answers to that post blamed “Booooosh” and the Tea Party. They don’t want to read any silly facts that contradict their opinions either.

    This must be liberal math too. 4.2% went to 6.2% and they’re calling it a 2% increase. It’s not.

    Actually, 2 percentage points added to 4.2 percent is a 47% increase.

    And this tax collection avenue being so called social security, there is no legal way to reduce your burden. No loopholes, no deductions, no credits…. there’s no escape. It hits the working poor and lower middle class the hardest.

    I’ve decided to take action to punish my libtard customers, and collect reparations for all economic damage that has been done, or will be done, to me by the people they vote for.

    Rather than raising prices for all of my customers, I’m only raising them for the ones I know are libtards.

    I’m an HVAC contractor, so it is easy to pull off, with no chance of getting caught at it.

    I’ve already been doing it to a limited extent, but this year I’m going whole hog with it.
    I see any evidence that the customer is a libtard, they pay more.

    Our health insurance nearly triples this year, our taxes are up, and some refrigerant prices have quadrupled, and our regulatory compliance costs have increased, all directly as a result of libtard policies.

    Why should my non libtard customers have to foot the bill for stuff they didn’t vote for?
