Heh! I was going to say that Obama supporters had to wake up and smell the coffee, but thanks to the latest tax increase they might not be able to afford coffee. I guess we can say they had a rude awakening, and some still may not have received their first paycheck of 2013.
Shocker. Democrats who supported the president’s re-election just had NO idea that his steadfast pledge to raise taxes meant that he was really going to raise taxes. They thought he planned to just hit those filthy “1 percenters,” you know, the ones who earned fortunes through their inventiveness and hard work. They thought the free ride would continue forever.

The article quotes someone else who said that his tax amounts to about $86 a month and all of the things she could buy with that $86. One thing it doesn’t appear anyone picked up on is that that $86 a month won’t be going into the economy. So that will mean fewer jobs for other workers.
But hey, you get what you vote for. Maybe next time people should do their homework.
