Dear Editor:

No tax increase for the middle class? Just take a look at your paycheck in 2013 and compare it to your 2012 paycheck. Payroll deductions are higher this year and employers are passing on their Obamacare insurance increases to you, in the form of your take home pay being decreased.

Carbon and Schuylkill voters couldn't get to the polls fast enough to put Obama back in, even though the unemployment rate is higher than most areas. We wouldn't want a businessman in office who might know how to get the economy moving.

Please wake up! Don't look now, but the imperial leader is coming for your guns. You might as well give them up, because you invited the fox into the hen house, again.
