So, I got my first paycheck of 2013 and right away noticed that something was…different. Different is never good. Different as in _smaller_.
How much smaller?
Comparing my witholdings from the last pay period of 2012 to the first one in 2013, I see the Social Security monster decided to take an additional $75 bite out of my ass. Every pay period. But that’s fine, because I’m sure when I get ready to retire, that money is going to be _there_ for me. And, clearly, I’m one of the “rich” this country needs so badly to tax more.
