Payroll Tax Cut
WASHINGTON - With the House of Representatives stalling passage of a bill that would extend the payroll tax cut for Americans, the White House is asking Americans what $40 per paycheck means to you.
The Native News Network will forward your responses to the White House on Friday morning.
Please let the White House and Congress what $40 means to American Indians.
Here are some examples forwarded to the Native News Network from the White House on Wednesday:
Our cable internet bill is $49 per month. If we lose this payroll tax cut then we will have to give up either or internet access or possibly our 'Friday Family Pizza' night. Either way, we will lose something that brings us together as a family. K.Z., Frederick, Maryland
After everything that comes out, including my mortgage my take home pay is $150.00 every two weeks. So minus forty would be $110.00. I can barely get by now, that forty bucks is my gas for my car to get to work. Taking forty away from my pay would, just about put me under. R.T., Charleston, West Virginia
$40 less a paycheck means I will have to pick between my insulin and the water bill. It means never being able to see my doctor - even though I have insurance. B.T., Roswell, New Mexico
