An anecdote from the front lines.
Passed out paychecks today, which is the first paycheck of the year under the new Obama tax rules. One of our employees, an example of the low information voter who voted for the One, ran up to me after seeing her check and wanted to know why we "docked" her 30 bucks.
I had to explain the new (or old, as it were) increase in her social security deduction, and why it was there.
Not to worry, in spite of the disappointment, she'll still vote for the same losers that are now swiping even more of her hard earned money. Hurrumpf!! People make their own trouble.
And relevant to the issue of Social Security, check out this analysis from Zero Hedge, which puts a clear and bright spotlight on the trouble.
