What a fucking waste.

Who is this going to help.

I am bitching because I am an accountant... and NOW we cannot do ANY early filing because of this bullshit.

Who is this pittance really going to help?!

Much more trouble than it's worth for the pittance extra individuals will net.

Oh I know... the boss gave me the 'GOOD NEWS' this morning. I was actually expecting something substantial. What a dumbass I am to entertain such a thought!

Typical of the government to do something virutally meaningless for the masses and PRETEND it's some major friggin gift.

In reality, it just creates more work for the slave race (US) and justifies a bunch of asshats getting OT at the IRS.

FUCK THEM, FUCK THIS DAY, FUCK THIS TAX SEASON.... FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK.

That is $343.20 over the course of a year.

That is more then a weeks pay for a lot of folks out there just trying to survive off of or near minimum wage.

Well yes but who is going to stash that into some special account for a rainy day? It's virtually meaningless once you look at all the 'extra work' involved.

Hey, guess what! That tax money you just 'saved' justifies the employment of HUNDREDS of more government workers to make the calculation adjustment.

Do not be foolish and think ANYTHING comes for free.

Actually, that's what it is for me. A minimum wage worker is seeing a few cents at best with this decrease.....

Yeah but when it comes in the form of $6.60 at a time, it defeats the purpose of even recognizing that it's $343.20 over a year's time.

If it was just given to ya as one lump sum, then it'd have a greater effect. What do you do with $6.60 extra...buy 2 gallons of gas??? Give it as the lump sum and you can pay a fuckin' CAR NOTE.

ugh, I'm know alot of people live that way too. I cannot eat that type of fast food... but I know it's pushed on the poverty ridden; which is pretty awful.

In any case, the people depending on a whopper for a meal are getting about 10 cents extra in their checks at best.

I really do not see how this is helping ANYONE.

Exactly.

Also, keep in mind that the fica rate is a percentage so for people earning a low wage, they are not getting SHIT out of this (a few cents, seriously), therefore making the whole mess POINTLESS... but what the fuck else would we expect really....

Learn to save.

learn to not be materialistic.

Once you have those two things covered, you would be amazed how much saving up your dimes, nickels, and pennies can add up to...

I'm out of work right now, but for 6-7 years prior as a carpenter I was averaging about $1300 at the end of each year, in change I saved.

Whenever I got change I automatically put it away the same day and never touched it till' the end of year.

Don't be mad just because you didn't know what she was talking about.

You're right, she has a job, which many do not have, but you do realize where the money is coming from that she's talking about... right? There's a certain implication behind it.

It's 6.60, maybe 8.00 for me, maybe 15 for another... and that's coming from SOMEWHERE... did you know where it was coming from?

I could have swore I was told that minimum wage was going jump up to nine something an hour here in Illinois.

I work in customer service. I'm constantly on the phone. Been doing this since 2004 and I only make 9.50 an hour.

I'm also always being told about how others around here have been drawing unemployment for well over a year and getting paid waaaaayyyy more than I do for doing nothing more than sittin' on their dud ass's!

All they have to do is go to the mailbox.

It's bullshit.

Yeah, thanks Mr. Obama.

Thank you for taking what rightfully belongs to me and giving it to someone that doesn't deserve it.

Thank a million buddy!
