According to Grover Norquist, the recent law that was passed actually decreased taxes. You can't have it both ways, guys.

Taxes are going to go up because the Social Security "tax holiday" break was allowed to expire. There were no tax cuts to balance out this increase, so it's effectively going to take an additional chunk of money from everyone's paychecks!

Tell that to the people who saw and will see their paychecks go down.

For 77% of Americans, taxes went up.

You are probably confusing taxes with revenues. Revenues likely did decrease because now the productive people have less incentive to continue being productive so even though rates went up, revenues fall as incomes fall.

They've been given an inch and now they're taking a mile. As we've reported here at Townhall, Democrats promised to cut spending as part of the fiscal cliff deal, so long as tax rates went up on the "rich," or in other words, anybody who earns a paycheck. As a reminder, the fiscal cliff deal gave us $41 in tax hikes for every $1 in spending cuts. On top of that, let's not forget about the $1 trillion ObamaCare tax hike also buried in the fiscal cliff. Now, Democrats are planning to squeeze taxpayers for another cool $1 trillion...
