Are the going to reduce the worth of everyone's welfare stamps to ? Here in Michigan they now have a bridge card, like a debit card, that way the leaches won't be embarrassed by having to tear stamps out of a book in front of others, before they load their steaks into their Caddys . If everyone has to take a hit they should be included !!

It's a cost saving measure. Streamlining the process to be entirely digital saves the government money. I guess that's not good except when it helps to bash democrats though.

Becca, why don't you get up a group or groups to sneak around at night and steal all the license plates from Mexicans cars, then the law would have a reason to stop them and ask for ID. Got to admit it sounds kinda goofy ,but who knows . I would guess the local law would not process it any further than a scolding anyhow. Need Joe Aprio !!!!!!

When many Americans received their first paycheck of 2013, they wondered why their paychecks were smaller. Obama supporters in particular were baffled, wondering why they were seeing less pay when they had just voted for a President who promised they would never see a tax increase, that after all was reserved for "rich" people. The first Friday in January, Google was flooded with the question, "Why is my paycheck smaller?" Workers took to Twitter and asked the same question.

Now, even the New York Times is realizing who the the newest payroll taxes hurt the most: poor...
