FILE - In this Jan. 13, 2013 file photo, President Barack Obama, right, and Vice President Joe Biden make a statement regarding the passage of the fiscal cliff bill in the Brady Press Briefing Room at the White House in Washington. The payroll tax holiday has ended for all workers, and higher-income people will bear a heavier tax burden. Many people might be surprised when they look at their paychecks this month, scratch their heads and wonder why their take-home pay is less. (AP Photo/Charles Dharapak, File)
