I can't seem to leave some news stories alone...
How Much Will You Lose?
I have a friend living nearby up here on mountain who works at Wal-Mart. By California standards, he doesn't make a great living, but he makes enough to pay the bills and support his hobby of off-road motorcycle riding in the desert. The big thing for him is that he likes working for Wal-Mart. He says it makes him feel good to know that he helps people to, as the company slogan says, save money and live better.
But he is concerned about taxes.
I should mention that he is single, has no children, and is traditionally a liberal. He admits voting for Obama, Boxer, and Brown.
So, when he visited the other day for a few hours, we went to the web site http://www.extendthecuts.com/ and entered his information. He makes about $12 an hour. That comes to about $25,000 a year. Guess what?
His taxes will go up by $418.75 under the Senate plan.
And keep in mind that this is the same Senate who has said that only the rich will see a tax increase.
I congratulated my friend on being wealthy.
Thank God we have the House to stop the insanity.
