This may have been true for you, but those of us who work for a living got
hit with a whopping increase in social security taxes. As a self-employed
consultant, I paid nearly twice as much in self-employment taxes (form 1040,
line 47) as I did in income tax (line 46).

If you're an employee, you pay a little less, since your employer pays some
of that. You may not notice how big your part is, because you pay it
"painlessly" through withholding. ...RM
