Whats the point of busting your ass to try to make a better life for your family when the cards are pretty much stacked against the middle class now? So yeah I did some rough calculation based on the numbers provided by the government. Family A is a married couple with two kids. The father is the sole income provider and makes a gross yearly income of $65,000. Taxed at 15% ($6600) the net is roughly $58400. Now subtract another approximately $1200 dollars for state income tax and social security and you've got $57200. Now consider the mandatory expense of Obamacare which would work out to roughly $5400. This further reduces the original gross income to a net of $51800. So divided up over 12 months thats $4316 a month. Now take family B which is also a married couple with two children and the father is head of household. Only he makes $28000 a year. He pays zero federal and state income taxes because this is poverty level. So yeah, this family is eligable for $400 worth of food stamps a month. This just added $4800 to their income so now theyre at $32800. Now consider that $450 a month Obamacare plan that Family A had to pay for is free. Now Family B's income has been boosted by $5400 which takes it to $38200. Now factor in each adult can get a free Obamaphone which is a $100 a month value so now their income is actually $40600. Of course there are a few other free sh1t programs Family B can get on like H.E.A.T for instance but bottom line Family A father is busting his ass working 10 hours days for an additional $933 a month... Ask yourself, is really worth it?
