Did your first 2013 paycheck seem a little skimpy?
The temporary two-year cut in Social Security withholding has expired, so the tax reverted to 6.2 percent of your salary from the lower 4.2 percent we've enjoyed since 2011.
That's a difference of about $1,000 for the average household this year.
Will you have go to back to using store-brand diapers? Put less in your retirement fund?
