|For Fourth Year in a Row, Obama Fails to Thank God During Annual Thanksgiving Address||Walmart vs. the Unions|
Ironically, the folks who are poised to jack up our taxes? Lots and lots of tax cheats among them.
The new year is going to bring with it huge tax hikes for almost all Americans. The hardest hit, also ironically (and humorously) enough, are the ass clowns in the reddest of states who voted for Obama and Democrats on the back of “we’ll raise taxes” promises.
And hardest hit? The folks who have already been hammered by Hurricane Sandy:
Families in Hurricane Sandy-ravaged New Jersey will face the highest tax increase as a percentage of their income – 6.82% or about $6,933 more in taxes — if Congress does not reach an agreement on the fiscal cliff tax issues during the lame-duck session, according to an analysis by the Tax Foundation.
In its study of how the fiscal cliff would affect typical families in each state, the Tax Foundation reports that if the numerous tax provisions that are due to expire on Dec. 31 are not changed, a four-person family in New Jersey with a median income of $101,682 will see its taxes go up at a rate 6.82 percent of its income, which translates into about $6,933.
Top Five Tax Increases Tax Increases as % of Income
#1 – New Jersey $6,933 6.82%
#2 – Maryland $7,194 6.74%
#3 – Connecticut $6,653 6.62%
#4 – Massachusetts $6,632 6.53%
#5 – New Hampshire $5,660 5.81%
Good. I hope they’re happy with what they’ve asked for. I hope it hurts, too.
Except, of course, the vast majority of Obama voters already don’t pay any taxes at all…so, they’ll merely shrug their shoulders and go back to bitching about not getting their welfare check on time and the lack of free contraception for their ‘whorin.
