TAXES SUCK!!!

My company gave me a raise for the new year. It amounted to a little over $2000 more gross for the year. Now wait...before you get all excited for me...the title of this post probably tells you what is coming next. Due to the raise putting me right over the next tax bracket, I'm now going to take home $3500 less net this year than if I would not have gotten the raise. How insane is that!!!

But you're rich because you make more then minimum wage!!

According to the Dems definition of rich is you make more than $40K/yr you are rich. Glad to be thought of so highly, but with such crazy policies sometimes makes you wonder why even bother. Don't worry though...I'm not giving up just yet =)
