So let me get this straight. Congress and the president just extended benefits for the long-term unemployed, which is code for people who don’t want to work. Meanwhile, people that do work just got docked with a 2 percent increase in their payroll tax which will shrink their paycheck, damage the economy and increase unemployment even more than it was. I thought Obama’s platform was not allowing taxes to increase for the working class and was going to help small business? So much for that promise!
