Where does the money go?

Where does the money go? I claim 3 dependants and still get raped when it comes to taxes and other deductions. Why do I pay social security anyway...that is really starting to get on my nerves. I have been working since I was 14 and I think they have 30k of social security for me so far. That's alot, and I really don't think I will see any of it. I had a beautiful paycheck coming to deductions this month $983.26...sigh. With $30000 a year in a mortgage, $9100 a year in daycare, $6750 in electric, $4842 in grocery, $816 in cable, $1560 in student loans & $12378 in deductions on my paystub alone (Not hubby's...)totaling $65446 worth of money I will never see, you wonder how do people get by? And I am considered middle class... Break your payouts down and you will see what I am talking about it.

You pay taxes? That's the problem. You can save a fortune by not paying taxes. It's not like a crime if you don't, you know?

Sheesh, just when I thought I could put things like that out of my mind, you go and bring it all up again!

You're's scary to think how much of the money you earn you never actually see.
