Keep in mind that what they call the "Payroll Tax Cuts" is the suspension of paying into your own Social Security Account. This would be the same as stopping payments to your 401K retirement account and expecting to have the same monthly annuity payments when you retire. We call these taxes but they are really installments from which we later expect payment when we reach retirement age. This is a shell game by the politicians who aren't telling us what it's really going to cost to fund this loss in the future. Social Security was in trouble before we did this and now it's worse.
