    Did you notice a decrease in your paycheck

    Dang it...I noticed a decrease in my paycheck due to some federal tax changes. Some people got an increase. I guess it depends on total household earnings. And less money for reefing.


    I guess go Trump.

    I don't think you can get a fair comparison until you see if your refund goes up or down after this year. Your paycheck may go down but after you do your taxes, you may get a larger refund. If that is the case, you can change your withholding to make your check go up.

    I saw a $50 increase but of course that was outpaced by my insurance cost increase (with a higher deductible to boot..) .

    Yeah the working class haven't caught a break for 40 years. Top earners saw their taxes cut in half during that time frame, productivity continued to rise at the same rate, and real wages haven't risen since the 70s. They also don't account for the almost unbelievable increase in cost of health care and education in that time frame as well. I wonder how much more you can squeeze hard working folks before they have enough. It's no wonder we consume more psychotropics and opioids than any country in the world.
