These leaders of ours are ridiculous.  They're patting themselves on the back for avoiding the "fiscal cliff" for the time being.  They still need to figure out where to make budgets, which I'm sure will as much of a dramatic production as this one.  As it stands, the "typical" middle class can expect to pay around $1,000 more per year due to a social security tax hike.

 Here's a tax calculator to help you figure out how much more money your family will pay:

I'll be using it to figure out where to cut our budget.  Thanks, senators.  Hopefully, you can figure out where to cut your own budget.

People received a tax break on SS over the last few years. It had to go back up, it was never intended to be permanent. What needs to happen now is the cap on what can be taxed should be eliminated.

As the government leaders battle over the debt ceiling, the President should make it clear the districts of those Congresscritters who plan to vote against raising it should be the first areas hit by cuts.

I agree, Obama should retaliate in just that fashion.  I will be funny to see him dragged out of the White House by the mobs of irate citizens and thrown into the Potomac, followed by every elected Democrat.

We should also publish the names of every Democrat who added their billions of pork to the Sandy relief bill, who supported the increased taxes for Obamacare and who have supported increasing the debt yoked to our children.  In fact, each citizen should receive a bill from the government letting them know exactly how much they owe due to Obamaspending and Democrat corruption.

"I will be funny to see him dragged out of the White House by the mobs of irate citizens and thrown into the Potomac, followed by every elected Democrat." This comment is not funny or appropriate. It is treasonous, if I'm reading it right: that it is okay for mobs to murder elected rulers that they don't agree with. Shame.

I wasn't being perhaps I should amend my comment to would be funny to see Obama impeached by both houses of Congress, deluged in an avalanche of law suits, and then chortle as we watch every Democrat who supported Obama's incredibly stupid and illegal policies get tossed out of office.

Are you tired of going office daily? Make money working from home with Google! I get paid over $87 per hour with 2 kids at home. I never thought I'd be able to do it but my best friend earns over 10k a month doing this and she convinced me to try. The potential with this is endless. Here is what I've been doing,GOOGLE CASH
