Ya’ know something, this author sees some kind of morbid ‘told-ya-so’ satisfaction in the constituent Democrats coming to the realization that President Obama lied to them. It does not relay the similar satisfaction to us.
Perhaps it’s because regardless of the guise, and those who believed it, the people impacted are all Americans – even those painfully now aware of themselves being hoodwinked by the snake oil salesman – there is no satisfaction there.
A guy or gal making $500 bucks a week is now faced with a paycheck $30 – $40 smaller. That’s $150+ bucks a month less to keep food, a roof, or a modicum of lifestyle afloat.

So this week, as taxes went up for millions of Americans — which Republicans predicted throughout the campaign would happen — it was fun to watch the agoggery of the left.
“I know to expect between $93 and $94 less in my paycheck on the 15th,” wrote the ironically named “RomneyLies.” (read more)
