Matt, I agree with most of the article, but the part about calling the payroll tax restoration to its original cost a tax hike is incorrect. It never should have been reduced. The reason it was reduced is because it affected more people than the income tax. 28.5% of America households mearns $25,000 or less. They were the biggest beneficiaries as they may, based on family, pay no income tax and collect credits. Bingo 28.2% of the vote is yours. It is(was) the most clever act of the Obama administration. It was possibly the most harmful in many aspects.

Any upward change in a tax rate - even one undoing a tax cut that "shouldn't have happened" (really?) - is a tax increase.

It should have never been raised in the 80 from the 2%. And it should be abolished.

Gomer Pyle, USMC, in his 80s, just got married to some guy from Hawaii; some player from Notre Dame had a dead virtual girlfriend who really wasn't alive; and the media are reporting that we've been out of the recession since March of 2009. Well as Gomer would have said, "Golly!"

I really don't give a flip who Jim Nabors, who played Gomer, marries and can't really find a reason to understand why Notre Dame's Manti Te'o's private online non-love-life matters, either. But then again, as we enter 2013, let's consider all of the crazy things we never thought...
