So we get this "amazing" Federal Tax Cut and we get $26 a month more on our paychecks from June to Dec of this year and next year it goes to a whopping $16! Hip Hip HOrray! The financial crisies is almost over.. Then California's Terminator Govennor, raises state sales tax a penny. And it won't even be going to the economy of the state, but to pay the bills those glutenous big spenders spent! Period. End of story. Talk about no words to describe....

Yes, well, while I agree that the tiny amount that people are going to get added to their paycheck is an insult at least they get something. Those of us who don't get a paycheck won't even get that.

Yep, I won't get the extra $26 either but still have to pay the higher state sales tax...now thats a sure fire way to improve the economy! Tax cuts like that aren't worth the salaries we all paid all those uppity yahoos on Capital Hill to sit there for days arguing about it!

Lol, those few $$s won't do anything. Besides that the states have started to raise taxes one way or another, the stores have immediately raised prices in anticipation that consumers have a couple more $$ they can spend. As if we wouldn't notice a couple cents, nickel or dime raises in the prices... At the end of the day, we have even less money in our pockets.... This crisis is far from over, but all those politicians got their pork
