Barack Obama was re-elected, which essentially locks in tax hikes on everyone (forget the $250,000 barrier), and portends even greater increases in gas prices and healthcare costs.

In truth, these consequences are so certain that people who voted for Obama were indirectly voting for higher taxes, higher prices at the pump, and more expensive and time consuming healthcare, whether they knew it or not.  And odds are, those who knew it are trusting Obama will find a way to excuse them from the penalties that start hitting the rest of us at the beginning of 2013.
