NY Times notices Obama tax hikes are crushing Americans, fails to mention Obama. Well, if Bushes/tsunamis/earthquakes/hurricanes/one-percenters/Romneys aren’t to blame, it must be some kind of freak accident or something.

I think its probably safe to say that very few to no one here were affected by the income tax rate increase.. (noted as OP just says “tax hikes”)

So we’re left with payroll tax increase..? Which is resumption of previous rates from the payroll tax cut/holiday of recent years? Which happened when? Stimulus bill, then again in 2010 when extended?

So the debt increasing tax holiday, as part of the maligned stimulus bill, which has since ended as holidays often do, is now a problem?

I’m down probably almost couple hundred a month now, btw.. what am I missing here?

The article doesn’t mention the GOP either, which has been on both sides of the payroll tax holiday issue

Don’t count on that!
You’d be surprised at what taxes are coming at us, not all are labeled as “income” taxes, but are taxes just the same, and they are all going to the same cause, paying off the recipients. You will notice that there are no plans to use the money to pay down the debt, but social programs are expanding at light speed.

What happened? One of the hopefully soon to be unemployed clowns at the NY Slimes open up his paycheck?

Very mysterious. Somehow, taxes went up without the involvement of Democrats in Congress or the President. It’s nobody’s fault, it happened when Obama wasn’t around—just like Bengahzi.

Apparently the Times believes that taxes raise themselves without any human involvement, much as they believe that guns fire themselves without human assistance.

I’m surprised they didn’t manage an obstructionist Congress dominated by teebagger Rethuglicans.

Well if they would have mentioned Obama, Dean Baquet (NYT Managing Ed.) would no longer be allowed to ah fellate Obama. Plus the morons who read that asswipe will just draw the conclusion that it is the Republicans fault if they leave it at all vague.
