Oopsie! You have GOT to love the way the government does its homework!!

Officials from the policy-neutral National Payroll Reporting Consortium, Inc. have expressed concern to members of Congress that the two-month payroll tax holiday passed by the Senate and supported by President Obama cannot be implemented properly.

Pete Isberg, president of the NPRC today wrote to the key leaders of the relevant committees of the House and Senate, telling them that “insufficient lead time” to implement the complicated change mandated by the legislation means the two-month payroll tax holiday “could create substantial problems, confusion and costs affecting a significant percentage of U.S. employers and employees.”

    Well, they don’t understand the U.S. Constitution so this is no surprised. How embarassing but they probably haven’t the humility to be even a bit sheepish.

    Protect Whistleblowers: Often the best source of information about waste, fraud, and abuse in government is an existing government employee committed to public integrity and willing to speak out. Such acts of courage and patriotism, which can sometimes save lives and often save taxpayer dollars, should be encouraged rather than stifled. We need to empower federal employees as watchdogs of wrongdoing and partners in performance. Barack Obama will strengthen whistleblower laws to protect federal workers who expose waste, fraud, and abuse of authority in government. Obama will ensure that federal agencies expedite the process for reviewing whistleblower claims and whistleblowers have full access to courts and due process.

    That, as is just about everything else about Barack Obama, is chock full of manure. It is as phony as he is.

    I’m not sure where to put this:

    Stupidest remark by a politician:

    “Look, the Taliban per se is not our enemy. That’s critical. There is not a single statement that the president has ever made in any of our policy assertions that the Taliban is our enemy because it threatens U.S. interests.”- Vice President Joe Biden

    One of the basic principles of socialism is the destruction of the middle class. Socialism is a 2 class society–ruling elite and those living in helpless, hopeless squalor. Everything Obama and his handlers have done these last 3 years has been designed to harm the middle class–higher gas prices, higher food prices, higher energy costs, higher health insurance costs, higher banking costs, etc. Two groups who have made out like bandits are the parasites–40% increase in food stamp benefits, and the super rich–Dodd-Frank-Obama is designed to consolidate all financial power in the hands of a few chosen individuals. Even the “tax the rich” mantra is no more than a smoke screen for what the left really wants, and needs, crippling taxes on the middle class to fund their pie in the sky liberal socialist utopian programs and to complete the destruction of the middle class.

    Keep that in mind and what has been done to our country these last 3 years makes a lot more sense.

    And yet the truth is Republicans are fighting to extend the payroll tax cut for one year as opposed to the two month extension the Dems are pushing, which according to experts will be nearly impossible to implement.

    The list includes more than $100,000 on a video game “preservation” center, $120 million in salaries to dead employees and $15.3 million for one of the infamous Bridges to Nowhere — all in a year when the federal deficit rose by nearly $2 trillion.

    Each Chevy Volt sold thus far may have as much as $250,000 in state and federal dollars in incentives behind it – a total of $3 billion altogether, according to an analysis by James Hohman, assistant director of fiscal policy at the Mackinac Center for Public Policy.

    Thank you NAR for proving what everyone knew: that the US housing market is one big lie. And next: here come the historical GDP revisions.

      Oh, that Nancy Pelosi, she’s such a card ROTFLMBO!~

      Well, truth be told, she is an impeccable source if you’re looking for Marxist class-warfare rhetoric. But, of course!

    A two-month extension is nothing more than a long tax weekend. What employer is going to alter his hiring decisions — whose effects last years — in anticipation of a one-year tax holiday, let alone one that lasts two months?

    This is a $121 billion annual drain on the Treasury that makes a mockery of the Democrats’ reverence for the Social Security trust fund and its inviolability. Obama’s OMB director took Social Security completely off the table in debt-reduction talks under the pretense that Social Security is self-financing. This is pure fiction, because the Treasury supplies whatever shortfalls Social Security faces. But now, with the payroll-tax holiday, the administration openly demonstrates bad faith — conceding with its actions that the payroll tax is, after all, interchangeable with other revenues and never actually sequestered to ensure future payments to retirees.
