The Fiscal Cliff Comes Back to Bite Voters: How Should Republicans Respond?

As the first paychecks of 2013 were deposited into accounts earlier this month, some workers undoubtedly wondered why their take-home pay seemed lighter than in December.

One of the highlights included yet another reduction in the payroll tax. Obama claims that this will put more money into the pockets of the American people, stimulate the economy, and decrease uncertainty. “It will provide a tax break for companies who hire new workers, and it will cut payroll taxes in half for every working American and every small business.
