Today, from my wife’s employer:

Happy New Year Everyone!

Effective January 1, 2013 the law has changed regarding Social Security taxes. Employee contributions will increase from the 2012 rate of 4.2% to 6.2%. Payroll checks dated January 3, 2013 will reflect these changes. In the event that there is legislation to change the withholding requirements and these changes are retroactive to January 1, you will be refunded the difference in a timely manner.

Dow, down down

There goes your $700 billion

There goes your $700 billion

If you thought that $700 billion dollar package was supposed to make those stock traders happy, think again. While your congressperson was glad-handing his pals after stealing your money to pay for some banker’s arrogance. The Dow went south at the end of the day. Pork. Pork. Pork.

Tea anyone?
