    That is a rebate of 400 per worker and 800 per couple. When it is gone it is gone. Do you enjoy taking more money out of SS and Medicare? Payroll taxes fund SS and Medicare, not to be confused with FIT which funds the rest of the govt

    Translation: I was wrong. The payroll tax holiday WAS in the stimulus bill, as per my own copy and paste.

    Translation, you don't know what you are talking about, that was called a payroll tax cut but a payroll tax holiday was part of another bill. Read it and weep

    That's because a separate tax credit, the so-called Making Work Pay credit, expired at the end of 2010. That credit, which was President Barack Obama's signature tax and stimulus policy, gave a larger share of benefits to low and middle-income households.

    payroll tax holiday? When did that occur? I have all the pay stubs for the past five years, and I swear I can't find a single week where the federal government stopped withholding....Can you direct me to when that happened?

    who cares what you think

    majority leader: Cantor: No bailout for states - On Congress - POLITICO.com

    budget chair: House Budget Chief Ryan Says Republicans Won't Bail Out States - Businessweek

    reality trumps fantasy

    The vast majority of the tax cut was a straight-up payroll tax cut that went to everyone in the country who earns a pay check.
    fifteen bucks a month?

    LOL!

    Why would I blame Obama if the states provided bad information?
    because he signed the checks
