HELP NEEDED! White House asks what $40 a month means to you. Tea Partiers need to reply

On Twitter, the White House asked its 2.6 million followers what $40 would mean to them, and Obama’s campaign Twitter account re-published the message to its 11.6 million followers — turning #40dollars into a trending hashtag. Macon Phillips, the White House director of new media, wrote on his Twitter account Tuesday night that responses were coming in at the rate of 2,000 per hour. 

My tweet was

$40 dollars a month is $17 dollars less than what is needed for every tax paying house hold must pay on JUST the interest on the $5 trillion dollar Obama debt.

Tea Party need to reply because the MSM is using these responses as the new story line of what the average American thinks.

 You would'nt need the 40 dollars if these idiots would open up all our resources and stop losing our Green on the Green Agenda. Nothing wrong with exploring all avenues while not wasting tax dollars or eggs in one basket. Have you seen the rise in prices that Pres. Obama promised under his watch of Gas, Electric, Oil and Food????? Great Huh? These are his words that he said in an interview right? I have the memory of an Elephant not the brain of a Donkey.

 Meanwhile we keep reducing the amount of Social security going in and our further destroying the reasoning for it. Great! Sop supplying financial aid to every other Country but our own will help too. My Mother and Father always told me growing up Charity begins at home. A Hard Days pay for a hard days work pays dividends.How can we possibly help others if we can't even help ourselves in our Country. Tea Party Veteran

Keep the $40 as they will only take it back at the end of the year when I do my taxes!

How much do we borrow for every dollar taxed, stollen from us? How many trillion? How many soon to be superinflated dollars do you think it will take to make our money worth nothing? That cola won't be worth nothing.

There are NO FREE RIDES! The Government has nothing to give without taking it from someone else.... redistribution is a dirty word but that's what this is. I don't think any of us are having a picnic right now. Looking for the Govt to give us something at their whim is the answer to nothing...it just compounds the problem. We need smaller government....we need them out of our pockets, out of our business & businesses. We need them upholding our Constitution, defending our borders, getting rid of burdensome regulation that strangles our job market.

My theory in Washington has been to take a really big spoon, stir like crazy and while everything is moving good.....FLUSH!

Now they use the wording, "Payroll Tax Holiday". S.S. payment deductions are referred to as "Investments

towards your future".  Only our government can choose the wording they feel will fool the masses most of

the time.  Anyone saying how this will affect how  the so called credits one gets towards your future payments

is calculated.  Folks, its all in the details, and like Nancy says , you'll know that after we pass it and then write it.

$40 dollars out of my pay would mean that I can't pay my rent, buy groceries or pay my bills.  I don't even barely squeak by, every penny I get has a place to go and there is nothing left over for anything at all, not gifts on birthdays or Hollidays not one penny is left over for anything.

And he expects me to stop eating so he can get an extra $40 dollars from me?  Let Obama take the money he wants for the White House out of the money he has made in book sales since he was put in office.  That will more than cover everything he wants and he can take it off his taxes as a political dontion.

Thank you Brenda:

The other minor item everyone seems to have forgotten is that the original reduction was billed as a "payroll tax holiday".  Holidays end! How is it a tax increase when a "payroll tax holiday" ends as advertised at the beginning?

The President of the United States is purposely trying to incite people by misdirecting the conversation. You don't need the $40, you need a new President. If you do get the $40, send it to the Republican Candidate of your choice! This President is the worst administrator since King George III. You may recall that he caused a Tea Party also.

This cannot even be implemented in two months and then removed if not continued.  Finish it now and don't waste more time in two months. There's too many important things that need your attention, not this again.  This is strictly political by the Dems. to distract people from the major problems that will bankrupt our country !!!
