We've Been Lied To...(PIOG)

My husband just got his paycheck, we are having an additional $300 in taxes deducted each month with the new tax tables that went into effect.  We certainly don't make over $250,000 a year--not even close.

That $300 would pay for our car payment, or one of our health insurance policies (we cover our own health insurance), groceries for most of the month, our electric bill...

What ever happened to integrity?

But don't you know ... we have to line the pockets of the corporations that the government bought with the bail out money ....

Time for a "Tea Party!"

Welcome to a Plutocracy.

Government ran by the rich, for the rich and piss on everyone else.

And I'm someone who's family makes that magic number of $250k a year. And you wanna know something.. I'm far from rich. Comfortable, yes. Rich.. Not by a long shot. 

Rich are the Soros', the Zuckerman's, the Bloombergs ect of the country....

I don't even want to look at my husband's paycheck next month.. I'll most likely cry..lol

Our government is a crock!  If my husband and my paycheck are docked 300 bucks I will be beyond pissed!  It's a bull that the president that promised tax cuts is allowing massive tax increases!

Time for Tea Party .... withhold finances .... change your W-4 forms to have 10 exemptions on it ... that keeps money from coming out of your paycheck.

We were told by my husband's employer that deductions don't matter, it's the same across the board.  I will have to check into it.

Oh, and the tax tables the IRS mailed out were incorrect and they have to print and mail out the corrections--more tax payer money wasted,

Ouch.

Excuse the bad langage but at this point.. If 300$ was deducted from my hubsands paycheck we'd be fucked.

Is that state or Federal? I would suggest getting with a good accountant and find out why and where those deductions are coming from.
