What Obama forgot to mention: Workers making $30,000 will take a bigger hit on their pay than those earning $500,000 under new fiscal deal




The great unwashed who voted for Obama will be in for a rude awakening when they realize they got hoodwinked!



Middle-class workers will take a bigger hit to their income proportionately than those earning between $200,000 and $500,000 under the new fiscal cliff deal, according to the nonpartisan Tax Policy Center. 
Earners in the latter group will pay an average 1.3 percent more - or an additional $2,711 - in taxes this year, while workers making between $30,000 and $200,000 will see their paychecks shrink by as much as 1.7 percent - or up to $1,784 - the D.C.-based think tank reported. 
Overall, nearly 80 percent of households will pay more money to the federal government as a result of the fiscal cliff deal.
