    Once the Obamacare Taxes kick in, their taxes will go up. The problem progressives, liberals, and Democrats will face is when the middle class wakes up and realize their taxes are going up too. It’s amazing that the inept Republicans weren’t waving the Obamacare Taxes in the faces of all those middle class Americans that thought the President was protecting them from tax increases.
    By the way, how is the President going to explain why all those medical device manufacturers started moving overseas and thousands of American jobs are lost? The Democrats are already scrambling to postpone that tax.

    The payroll taxes will go up for everybody with earned income.  A single earner making $250K would have a payroll tax increase of about $2200.  If a couple makes $250,000 via two equal incomes, their taxes will go up some $4400.
