How misplaced was their trust in re-electing
defender of the middle class tax-raiser President Obama? Workers making $30,000 will take a bigger hit on their pay than those earning $500,000 under the fiscal cliff deal. And Democrats are seeking $1 trillion more in tax “revenue” by the end of this year.
Now, it’s not nice to laugh at other people’s shock and surprise, but this is about as delicious as it gets. Voters seem to think that the president can hand out massive freebies like bailouts, stimulus, cash for clunkers, green energy subsidies and Obamacare, while somehow winding up personally protected by President Nice Guy from massive tax hikes and rising inflation.
Even if you’re not one of the evil rich, you’ll still pay — whether in your paychecks or at the gas pump and supermarket. Well, unless you’re one of those few welfare recipients taking out cash at strip clubs, liquor stores and X-rated shops.
As the national debt clock overheats from spinning so fast, voters don’t need to see those flipping numbers represent more debt. That’s way too abstract. What they need to see is in those numbers is the national taxes/inflation clock, which is much more accurate. And that clock only shows about $16 trillion of the future unfunded debts of about $86 trillion.
Some Tweets from the website Twitchy show some awesomely outraged Obama voters who were duped by their Supreme Leader (we’ll leave the NC-17 ones for Twitchy). Below pretty much sums them all up:

I have a friend who voted for Obama publicly complaining about the new #SS tax raise. I would just like to say: You did this to yourself.

But really how am I ever supposed to pay off my student loans if my already small paycheck keeps getting smaller? Help a sister out, Obama

Yep, you should have voted for Romney. Don’t expect things to get better, though, because nothing is going to change until voters take back economic power and stop giving it to Washington politicians.
