It’s about time for us to uncover our eyes and take a hard look at what 2013 did to our finances.

Did you feel the pinch of the 13 tax hikes that hit Americans this year?

Before you review the list below, put these two on your watch list for 2014:

  • Obamacare’s individual mandate. Beginning in 2014, it’s mandatory to purchase health insurance. If you don’t, you’ll pay a penalty that dramatically increases over time. It starts at $95 or 1 percent of your income (whichever is greater). It rises to $325 or 2 percent of income in 2015, and $695 or 2.5 percent of income in 2016.

Us “Older retirees” who collect Social Security, take advantage of Medicare, and don’t have 7-digit Net Worths find ourselves pretty much unaffected by most of these changes……

    Except for the NON-ILLEGAL ones, that will FLATTEN AMERICA over time – pure INFLATION and HOUSING (Housing in MANY WAYS). The OLD MIDDLE CLASS slides down the pole, from “Not so middle” as “Lower Middle”. From HIGH MIDDLE to Middle. From WEALTHY to High MIDDLE

    I USED to think that “Millionaire” was a goal – but there are so many of them now, that they will be DE-CLASSED through taxation to the point where …….
