#1 Low-income consumers hit hardest by tax increases02-24-2013, 11:41 PM
Why is Wal-Mart worried? Payroll tax could cut consumer spending. (+video)
Recent reports forecast lower spending for this year, anticipating that the restored payroll tax will impact consumers' wallets, especially low-income earners. Wal-Mart is adjusting its strategy.
Retailers are preparing for a triple whammy as the restoration of the payroll tax, surging gas prices, and stagnant employment and wages take a bite out of consumersí disposable income, leaving them with less cash to spend on clothing, groceries, and eating out.
As a result, more than three years after the recession officially ended, American consumers might be preparing to downshift again >>> with low-income consumers hit the hardest.
The recession ended? 3 Years ago?? What universe do these clowns live in?
Liberalism is just communism sold by the drink.

Is it just me? I'm tired of hearing all about how hard it is for the poor. I was poor once and things were hard. So I worked harder. Educated myself. Moved where the job needed me to go. Stayed late. Did what I could to promote myself. Now I am not poor. And I remember how I became wealthy.
Try it, poor folks.

I'm happy you are in a position you do not have to worry about this.
