It must be kicking in because my Internet company just added $2 increase in federal/state taxes amount over what I paid last month. Rates on many things go up, while people are still out of work, or have reduced hours, and most can’t make enough to match the rising costs. And this is before the Obamacare system fully kicks in.
It was introduced and referred to Committee on the same day and the prognosis is that it has an 18% chance of getting past the committee.
To provide for a 15% reduction in the rates of pay of Members of Congress for pay periods occurring during a year if a Federal budget deficit existed during the most recent fiscal year.
No summary is available at this time and it is obvious to provide Congress the incentive to properly budget, one of the major tasks required by constitutional law.

President Obama has shutdown executive branch services, but not the golf course at Andrews Air Force Base. To show how the commander-in-chief takes care of the troops that he expects to face dangers in his continued involvement in Middle East problems, the grocery store [PX] on that base is closed due to government shutdown. Service members and their families must shop off post and pay more for their groceries.
This president punishes others when he does not get his way, as congressional members, specifically in the Senate continue to support his outrageous spending, incompetent foreign policies, and continue a law that should never have passed – Obamacare. The federal government does not listen to the People because they are not capable of controlling their own lives. More people would have health insurance, paid for by employers if there wasn’t any income tax system, replaced by FairTax [ending the reign of the IRS] or even a flat tax [not more than 10% and no progressive tax]. Obamacare is going to force to let a percentage of their employees go and may even put businesses [small businesses] out of business, as well as increase the cost of health care and health care insurance. How does this help?
The people did not want [majority] Obamacare anyway. Senator Ted Cruz wants to make changes to the bill, but it is best to ditch it and never allow it to return.
The economy would be better off if: (1) Income tax system is replaced, (2) Obamacare legislation repealed, and (3) a bill/amendment passed that ensures a balanced budget occurs fiscally and reduces spending, especially overseas.
The audacity of those people on Capitol Hill is reaching a climax. Everyone, I mean everyone needs to be tying up the phones of their legislators in Congress and their fax machines.
While Obamacare has not even kicked in yet, health insurance premiums are already rising. And because Nancy Pelosi and her democratic-socialist comrades and GOP RINOs passed the bill and then stated they could read it to see what it states. Well, apparently they didn’t read it even after it passed. Understandable because it is a LONG bill that is filled with lawyer style gobble-gook and does absolutely nothing that Obama and friends promised it said it would do. In fact, if it does kick in, it will strap Americans with at least $2,300 a year more cost than previously – which means that what was predicted will come true. In addition, the corrupt IRS will have its hand in it; this corrupt administration will have its hand in it.
The following is a comment I left at Sodahead concerning the IRS and income tax system. It has to do with abolishing the 16th Amendment and getting rid of the most feared and hated agency of the federal government. It is time to end income tax at federal AND state levels. There are states that are doing just fine without it, and those states do not charge sales tax on FOOD. Levying income AND consumption tax AND excise tax and fees is DOUBLE TAXATION – taxation issues like this encouraged American colonists to declare independence.
Fast track to the 1990s when Prohias retired because of his health and died at age 77 in February 1998. The strip continued with writer Duck Edwing and artist Bob Clarke, and in magazine #356 (April 1997), Peter Kuper took over as writer and artist. The characters, including the Grey Spy added in 1962 (female) became a Sunday comic strip released in 2002 and in 2004, the characters were used in television commercials for Mountain Dew soft drink. Milton Bradley produced a Spy vs. Spy board game and video games were produced in three formats, one being Nintendo. In 2005 video games, Red and Blue Spies appeared and between 2006 and 2009 a series was published entitled Spy vs. Spy Jr. depicting spies as children.
Of all the scandals floating around Washington, congressional committees busily trying to sort it out, the two most serious are: Benghazi incident and the IRS scandal. The first has to do with the death of Americans serving our country and the other is a well-established and most hated/feared agency in the federal government.
The Benghazi tragedy occurred before election day 2012. So it makes me wonder why after all this time why nothing is being done about it. It has been clearly established that the order to “Stand Down” was given more than once, after repeated requests for assistance as three brave men fought off overwhelming odds in terms of numbers and firepower for SEVEN HOURS!
