First paycheck of the year...sad day

So I got my "compensation letter" last week (the we-appreciate-you-so-much-our-company-is-doing-great-because-of-people-like-you-here's-your-crappy-raise letter) and was looking forward to seeing the slight bump in my check.  Well, sorry, no, thanks to the SS tax going back up and increases in insurance, my check actually went down. 


Don't get me wrong, I am truly grateful for my job, but I sure would like to see a little more "appreciation" go to employees rather than the CEO. I'm still surprised that I wasn't aware that the "fiscal cliff" deal didn't include the extension for the SS tax.  I'd think that would be a headline...
