    All the while they made they permanently indexed AMT for inflation, helping the $100K - $500k income levels. The FICA increase hit those making under $113K the hardest.

    Only because Congress reduced the SS contributions in 2011 by 2%.

    I thought Obama was looking out for the middle income family and was going to (only) punish those evil people in the high income bracket? That is how the media spun it.

    And you actually believed a politician? They are only out for themselves, they could care less about us.

    Yeah I noticed a BIG difference. Mainly because I took the week off for a vacation (and didn't use vacation days) so I only got paid for the Jan 1 holiday. I'll see what everybody's complaining about on my next paycheck.

    I saw a 1.4% increase between first check of the year (15.9%) and one from 3 wks ago.(17.4%) Could be other variables.
