"To announce that there must be no criticism of the president, or that we are to stand by the president, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public." -- Theodore Roosevelt

Get Ready for the ObamaCare Taxes in 2014

"ObamaCare is the law of the land. You shall all be forced into it. You shall all love it. Any complaints are racist. So sayeth  your Light-bringer."

Happy New Year!

Hey Americans! ObamaCare's going to screw us all this year! Congrats!

From Kerry Picket at Breitbart:

Here are three of the major tax increases that come from the Democrats' healthcare law:
Individual Mandate Tax. The penalty for not buying health insurance will be either $95 or 1 percent of your annual income (whichever is greater). The Heritage Foundation points out that "Very few, if any, people will end up paying just $95, because individuals with an annual income of only $9,500 or less would likely qualify for Medicaid or a hardship exemption from the mandate." Additionally, the mandate will increase year by year to $325 or 2 percent of one's income in 2015, and $695 or 2.5 percent of income in 2016, whichever is greater. 
Reinsurance Fee. Heritage notes that health insurers must pay the temporary fee on group health plans in order to spread the cost of the covering people within the individual market who are inside and outside the Obamacare’s exchanges. "The fee begins in 2014, costing $63 per covered person and decreasing in 2015 and 2016. Like most taxes and fees, the result will likely be higher insurance premiums," Heritage explains. 
$60.1 Billion: Tax on Health Insurers (Takes effect Jan. 2014): Annual tax on the industry imposed relative to health insurance premiums collected that year. Phases in gradually until 2018. Fully-imposed on firms with $50 million in profits. Bill: PPACA; Page: 1,986-1,993
By 2015, the employer mandate kicks in. Originally, this mandate was scheduled to take effect in 2014, but the administration delayed it prior the the shoddy implementation of the healthcare law in late 2013. The mandate will order employers with 50 or more full-time employees (or those working 30 hours per week) to offer government-approved health insurance or pay a penalty. "The penalty varies—either $2,000 per employee after the first 30 workers, or $3,000 per employee receiving subsidized coverage in the exchange, whichever is less," Heritage says.

So get ready America. This first round of 5,000,000 insurance cancellations was just the beginning. There's going to be around 50,000,000 to 85,000,000 more cancellations this year. And then you'll be forced into buying expensive government mandated insurance policies that will give you less coverage and won't be accepted by many doctors and hospitals. Sounds great, doesn't it?

ObamaCare. The disaster just keeps rolling along.
