Here Comes The ObamaCare Tax Bill – New Year’s New Obamacare Taxes – More Obamacare Fee Increases To Begin In 2014 – Charles Payne

obamacare feeNew Year’s New Obamacare Taxes – More Obamacare Fee Increases To Begin In 2014 – Charles Payne

The cost of President Obama’s massive health-care law will hit Americans in 2014 as new taxes pile up on their insurance premiums and on their income-tax bills.

Most insurers aren’t advertising the ObamaCare taxes that are added on to premiums, opting instead to discretely pass them on to customers while quietly lobbying lawmakers for a break.
But one insurance company, Blue Cross Blue Shield of Alabama, laid bare the taxes on its bills with a separate line item for “Affordable Care Act Fees and Taxes.”


The new taxes on one customer’s bill added up to $23.14 a month, or $277.68 annually, according to Kaiser Health News. It boosted the monthly premium from $322.26 to $345.40 for that individual.
The new taxes and fees include a 2 percent levy on every health plan, which is expected to net about $8 billion for the government in 2014 and increase to $14.3 billion in 2018.
There’s also a $2 fee per policy that goes into a new medical-research trust fund called the Patient Centered Outcomes Research Institute.
Insurers pay a 3.5 percent user fee to sell medical plans on the HealthCare.gov Web site.
ObamaCare supporters argue that federal subsidies for many low-income Americans will not only cover the taxes, but pay a big chunk of the premiums.
But ObamaCare taxes don’t stop with health-plan premiums.
Americans also will pay hidden taxes, such as the 2.3 percent medical-device tax that will inflate the cost of items such as pacemakers, stents and prosthetic limbs.
Those with high out-of-pocket medical expenses also will get smaller income-tax deductions.
Americans are currently allowed to deduct expenses that exceed 7.5 percent of their annual income. The threshold jumps to 10 percent under ObamaCare, costing taxpayers about $15 billion over 10 years.
Then there’s the new Medicare tax.
Under ObamaCare, individual tax filers earning more than $200,000 and families earning more than $250,000 will pay an added 0.9 percent Medicare surtax on top of the existing 1.45 percent Medicare payroll tax. They’ll also pay an extra 3.8 percent Medicare tax on unearned income, such as investment dividends, rental income and capital gains.
Meanwhile, the Obama administration touted a surge of more than 2 million visitors Monday at HealthCare.gov, plus about 250,000 calls to ObamaCare call centers.
“Volumes remain high but not equal to [Monday] and we have not had to deploy our queuing system on the site,” said Julie Bataille, a spokeswoman for the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, referring to a virtual waiting room that is activated when the site is overloaded.
“We are taking thousands of calls at our call centers, which remain open until midnight, and we are seeing thousands of visitors complete enrollment online,” she said.
It wasn’t smooth sailing for everyone on the troubled site.
Software techie Jeff Karaaro tweeted in frustration: “Got three different codes trying to submit plan choices. No [one] can tell me what they mean. I nor call center can complete my application due to error.”

Fox News and Democratic Political Analyst Kirsten Powers Loses Her Health Insurance

October 25, 2013 in "Liar in Chief", Obama's America 2016, ObamaCare, Obamanation, Oust Obama, President Obama, Progressivism, Propaganda, Redistribution of Wealth, Repeal Obamacare, Socialism, The Hope and The Change, Treachery

Kirsten Powers portraits by Len Spoden PhotographyThe following are our “Dear Leader” and “Deceiver in Chief” Barack Hussein Obama’s unmitigated lies: “It’s going to bring down skyrocketing costs. It’s going to save families money. It’s going to save businesses money. It’s going to save government money.” Megan Kelly: “That promise that “if you like your plan you can keep it . If you like your doctor you can keep him is not proving true for millions of Americans.” Daily Beast Columnist, Fox News Political Analyst, and Obama and Democratic Party staunch supporter, Kirsten Powers say, “Right!”

She goes on to say that she received the same letter as “everyone else” that her Health Insurance plan was being terminated and that in her exchange, if she wants to keep her $2500 deductible, her insurance will go from $160/ month to $300/ a month or an increase of  87.5% .

“A Seismic Shift in Obamacare Sentiment on Capital Hill” has Democrats Turning on Obamacare

October 23, 2013 in Abuse of Power, Economic Deception, Hope and Change, Liberty in Jeopardy, ObamaCare, Obamanation, Patriotism, Political Courage, President Obama, Progressivism, Republicans Vs. Tea Party

Seismic Shift

While Senator Ted Cruz (TX) went home to a hero’s welcome, Senator Mike Lee (UT) found himself  in an unpopular quagmire as a result  of  our “Dear Leader”  and “Liar in Chief” Barack Hussein Obama’s unwarranted order to  barricade and close National Parks that resulted in nine UT  counties declaring an economic  state of emergency.

This just goes to prove that the price of freedom is not free and that  a few of our “Washington Patriots” will have to pay a price. One of the things that Progressives understand is  is that in today’s society,  sacrifice for the greater good is a virtue that has been on the wane which allows them to exploit political circumstances  without much fear of  repercussions.

Senators Ted Cruz and Mike Lee placed their careers and fortunes on the line because they understood that their sacrifice was necessary to safeguard the future of America, their families and generations to come.

Even now, Ted Cruz and Mike Lee are excoriated by the leadership in their own party as much as from the   Obamanite pinheads. Meanwhile, because of the sunlight brought to bear by these two patriots, even the Democrats are beginning to understand the physical and economic devastation that lurks in the future from Obamacare.

Last Night’s Politburo Vote in the House

October 17, 2013 in America's Collapse, America's Heritage, Amnesty, Anarchy, Budget, Constitutional, Debt Crisis, Debt Limit, DICTATORSHIP, Economic Deception, Hope and Change, Intimidation, Liberty in Jeopardy, ObamaCare, Obamanation, Patriotism, Police State, Political Deception, President Obama, Progressivism, Socialism, Tea Party, The Stakes for the 2014 Election, United States Constitution

 
The following Roll Call vote took place in spite of the fact that House members were not provided copies to peruse before the vote, even if they requested it. 87  Republican Traitors voted Yea! The means by which this legislation was moved and passed gives new meaning to the word “Treachery”.  The House voted to give Republican Mitch McConnell his $2 Billion Earmark and  voted a  stipend of $174K of our treasure was to  Millionairess Senator Frank  Lautenberg of NJ’s  widow in this purported “Clean CR”. Now that it has passed  we will have a  chance in the weeks aheadto review the entire bill and we will surely find other treacheries like a trick-provision that was added that will require a 2/3 vote  to stop the next Debt Limit increase.This morning the Wall Street Journal in an article by Laura Meckler, Business Voices Frustration With GOP, writes that “In interviews with representatives of companies large and small executives predicted a change in how business would approach politics. They didn’t foresee a new alignment with Democrats but forecast backing challengers to tea-party conservatives in GOP primaries…”

This is just the beginning of a planned blitz creed against Tea Party   Conservatives by the Establishment and their Progressive allies.  We are now joined in a battle,  not only a fight for Conservative values, but for the Survival of our Constitutional Democracy.

As Jeff Kuhner of WRKO in Boston recently stated, America has now become a functional “Dictatorship” under the tutelage  of our “Dear Leader” Barrack Hussein Obama.

And

Lastly, the Wall Street journal today had another front page headline, More Illegal Immigrants As for Asylum, thereby joining   next skirmish in our battle to save our American Way of Life.

Had enough yet?

Obama Continues His Raid on Medicare that Exploits Senior Citizens’ Medical Insurance

February 21, 2013 in Abuse of Power, Accountability, Medicare, ObamaCare, Political Deception, President Obama, President Ronald Reagan, Redistribution of Wealth, Taxiation with Representation

Screwed AgainRonald Reagan’s “nine most terrifying words in the English language.” are “I’m from the government and I’m here to help”

Barack Hussein Obama  and the Democrat Party proves the point with their promises to provide universal medical coverage that actually turns out to make draconian cuts to Medicare that will eliminate every remaining private Senior Citizen Medicare Advantage insurance plan in the United States.

Seniors have not only borne the brunt of artificially low interest rates by  “Helicopter” Ben Bernanke’s Fed Policies, but now endure ever decreasing funding for Medicare. This fits in with Obama’s redistribution of wealth and absolute power ideology. Take from the rich give to the poor, take from the old give to the youg, etc. You get the idea.

“Projected Medicare savings from Obamacare don’t improve the program. Instead, they pay for other new programs created under the law that aren’t even for seniors.By slashing reimbursement rates instead of introducing real reform, the health law jeopardizes seniors’ access to providers. ”

“…the Obama administration revealed that it would be significantly reducing funding for Medicare, a move that one health insurance analyst said “would turn almost every plan in the industry unprofitable.”

During the 2012 election campaign, Democrats denied that ObamaCare made $716 billion in cuts to Medicare in order to provide funding toward $1.9 trillion in new entitlement spending over the next ten years.

In an announcement on Friday, however, the Obama administration revealed that it would be significantly reducing funding for Medicare, a move that one health insurance analyst said “would turn almost every plan in the industry unprofitable.”

Health insurance stocks tumbled following the announcement that a big chunk of the Medicare cuts would come from the popular Medicare Advantage program, a market-oriented system in which participants can choose coverage by a private company that contracts with Medicare to provide all Part A and Part B benefits.

According to health care analyst Carl McDonald, the new rates proposed by the Obama administration will have the net effect of reducing payments to Medicare Advantage plans by seven to eight percent in 2014. McDonald projects:

If implemented, these rates and the program changes CMS [Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services] is suggesting would be enormously disruptive to Medicare Advantage, likely forcing a number of smaller plans out of the business and creating disarray for many seniors.

According to Richard Foster, former chief actuary to the Medicare program, ObamaCare’s cuts to Medicare Advantage will likely force half of its current participants back into the old Medicare program, originated in 1965. It is estimated that this change will cost Medicare enrollees an average of $3,714 in 2017 alone.

Democrats have long been unfriendly toward the Medicare Advantage plan, which was passed as part of the Balanced Budget Amendment of 1997 and has seen tremendous growth over the past 10 years. Today, more than 25 percent of seniors receive their health benefits through Medicare Advantage.

Regarding the cuts, America’s Health Insurance Plans’ (AHIP) president Karen Ignagni said, “Washington cannot tax and cut Medicare Advantage this much and not expect seniors to be harmed.”

Last year it was revealed that, while AHIP was openly supporting ObamaCare and working on a deal with the White House, it was also secretly funneling over $100 million to the Chamber of Commerce to be spent on advertising designed to convince Americans that the new legislation should be defeated.

The administration’s proposal is open to outside comments until March 1st, ahead of the final announcement of the cuts on April 1st.

WND EXCLUSIVE

OBAMA LEADING NATION INTO ‘FULL-ON DEPRESSION’

Pollster: ‘I cannot remember a time when America was this despondent’

January 19, 2013

by BOB UNRUH

 

Bob Unruh joined WND in 2006 after nearly three decades with the Associated Press, as well as several Upper Midwest newspapers, where he covered everything from legislative battles and sports to tornadoes and homicidal survivalists. He is also a photographer whose scenic work has been used commercially.

 

Editor’s note: This is another in a series of “WND/WENZEL POLLS” conducted exclusively for WND by the public-opinion research and media consulting company Wenzel Strategies.

obama1Barack Obama has led the nation into a “full-on depression,” according to a new poll that indicates only one in three people believes America is going in the right direction.

The poll shows a whopping 38 percent of Democrats believe America in general is “on the wrong track” or they are not sure.

The results are from a telephone poll conducted for WND by the public-opinion research and media consulting company Wenzel Strategies. It was taken Jan. 9-12 and carries a margin of error of plus or minus 3.22 percentage points.

On the basic question, 34 percent said the nation is going the right direction, 60 percent said America is on the wrong track and 6 percent said they were unsure.

The 60 percent included an overwhelming 84 percent of Republicans, a strong 66 percent majority of independents and even 30 percent of the Democrats.

“At the beginning of a second presidential term, you generally expect the country to be in full-bore optimism, in part as an endorsement of the re-elected president and in part a reflection of the nation settled in its current course,” said Fritz Wenzel, president of his strategies organization.

“We saw that with Reagan, we saw that with Clinton, and we saw that with George W. Bush. But that is not what we find with Obama,” he said.

“The country is already in full-on depression, as just 34 percent said they think things in America are headed in the right direction. Even among Democrats, just 62 percent said they think things are headed in the right direction, an abysmal figure for the president’s own fellow party members.”

He continued: “There is just no sugar-coating this – America may have liked Obama more than Romney, but they have no confidence in his leadership. This spells nothing but tough sledding for the nation over the next four years. Politically, it’s bound to get very ugly as the nation continues in a downward spiral and leaders in Washington point fingers across the political aisle. Forget solutions and reform for the next four years – the only thing coming from Washington will be blame for our sorry condition. This survey finding reflects that the nation is in the process of giving up hope.”

Even among those who called themselves “very liberal,” only 59 percent approve of the direction the nation is moving. At the opposite end of the scale, 90 percent of the “very conservative” said the nation is going down the wrong path.

Only 45 percent of Americans believe the nation’s best days still are ahead. Fifty-five percent said they are long gone.

“I cannot remember a time when America was this despondent. Our survey shows 55 percent of American adults believe America’s best days are now behind us, while just 45 percent said they think the brightest days are still ahead,” said Wenzel.

“Here we are, four years into a recession, with Washington acting – and spending – like the economy is booming and everything is rosy. This shocking disconnect between Washington leaders and the American public has perhaps never been greater,” he said.

“This finding is undoubtedly a reflection of the belief among most Americans that their leader has lost his way. Or maybe they just think that he doesn’t believe in America as that shining city on a hill, and so have lost their hope in their own country. It could very well be, at least for some, a despondent reaction to his re-election and the in-your-face attitude that the White House has adopted in dealing with the Congress in general, Republicans in Washington in particular, and Obama’s callous disregard for the massive problems that are about to destroy our nation,” Wenzel said.

“His first solution to every problem is to increase government spending and regulation, which Americans have consistently rejected. A majority still opposes Obamacare, and a majority opposed TARP and auto bailout. The idea that the nation may well have passed the point of no return in many areas may well be behind this shocking poll finding.”

Another section of the same poll revealed that there is a “shocking willingness” on the part of Americans to give up their privacy and freedoms for the sake of “safety.” It showed that while 61 percent say domestic drones violate privacy rights, 20 percent of the people are just fine with the idea. Further, 46 percent said local governments should use cameras to monitor traffic.

In related research, Wenzel also found that one in seven Americans sees a dictator in the nation’s future, and another one in five says it eventually will break up into several sovereign regions.

 

The survey revealed that more than one in four believe the United States likely will collapse not just in their lifetime, but in the next decade.

 

Also, Wenzel earlier revealed that the seeds of tyranny already are present in America, with a heavily armed law enforcement presence and a population holding a disbelief that their government could do anything that would make them want to revolt.

See detailed results of survey questions:

Thinking about how things are going here in America, would you say things, in general, are headed in the right direction, or do you think things are off on the wrong track?

Thinking about the country’s future, do you think America’s best days are still yet to come, oro do you think our best days are now behind us?

The Case for an Overwhelming Defeat of Obama and his Minions

November 5, 2012 in 2012 Election, Freedom, MA, Obama's America 2016, ObamaCare, Obamanation, Oust Obama, Political Courage, Politics, Senator Scott Brown, The Stakes for the 2012 Election, United States Constitution, United States Sovereignty

Unless we fundamentally transform our nation by electing Senators , Congressmen and a President that will work together to refocus and redirect , our society,  fiscally and morally,  our country will be headed in the same direction as our European neighbors across the pond, namely Socialism.

Additionally and most crucially this election is the most critical in generations because:

1. If re-elected Barack Hussein Obama will  continue molding our country  into a weak,  Socialist, apologetic nation while Mitt Romney will mold our country to a strong, Capitalist, trustworthy nation.

2. At least two Supreme Court Judges, who will determine the direction of our jurisprudence for several generations,  will be nominated by our next President.

3. Obamacare will not be repealed unless we have Mitt Romney in the White House and majorities in the  Senate and House. Additionally, It has become quite apparent that the changes to Medicare, resulting from Obamacare’s implementation, will be  costly for Seniors, young workers and our economic well being. Additionally, if allowed to be implemented, Obamacare  is guaranteed  to override our  fundamental God given and Constitutionally recognized Right-of- Conscience  by imposing  Anti-Religious  mandates.

4. We can no longer tolerate a Chief Executive who for his own political expediency and beliefs  pits one ethnicity against another,  the poor against the rich, the young against the old and promotes all manner of class envy.

As stated earlier, an important issues in this election is whether America will abruptly be turned toward Socialism or remain a Capitalist society. Obamacare will not only affect the elderly but “…will impose massive penalties on young workers, small businesses and others…” Thus,  Obamacare promises to not only lead us towards Socialism but also promises to further Bankrupt our already  precarious financial position and to accelerate our demise over the oft mentioned Financial Cliff

We can not allow legislation  like Obamacare,  which came to fruition by extreme Congressional misconducts like the “Cornhusker Kickback ”,  the  ”Louisiana Purchase” and a host of other covert “deals”, to  destroy our nation’s financial viability, our  Individual Liberty and our National Sovereignty.

This is our time!  The candidates that we elect will serve in office for the next two, four or six years. If we do not choose wisely, those years could be agonizing. So vet the candidates, know their core principles,  choose wisely and vote for candidates that will strengthen our Constitutionalism, our Capitalism and will reject Socialism!

Obama Admin Is Using A Program To Buy The Election By Hiding Cuts To Medicare?

Republican Rep. Darrell Issa has threatened to subpoena the Department of Health and Human Services if it does not turn over documents by Thursday on a program he claims is being used to “buy” the election by hiding the effects of ObamaCare.   Issa, the chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, made his demands in a letter late Wednesday to Health Secretary Kathleen Sebelius.

[yframe url=’http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a1UgQHgMrfA’]

His office effectively is accusing the department of stringing them along in their months-old request for documents about an $8 billion program that pays bonuses to Medicare Advantage plans.

[yframe url=’http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RlhQtyIQTAA’]

“Your staff has run out of excuses and the long delay in providing these documents is inexcusable,” Issa wrote, in the letter obtained by FoxNews.com.

[yframe url=’http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0jhN_jxrLu8′]

Issa claims the bonus program is being used to mask the first round of Medicare Advantage cuts in connection with the health care overhaul — in order to win favor with seniors. He said in a recent letter that “the only plausible explanation” for the program is that it’s being used as a “temporary bandage” to cover up cuts, “realizing the political danger” of those cuts in an election year.   The program in question is called a “demonstration” project. But Issa’s office complains the project is far more sweeping than a run-of-the-mill test program, and conveniently lasts until 2014.   The congressman further says the effects of ObamaCare’s $200 billion in Medicare Advantage cuts over the next decade would have been felt starting this week — if not for the bonus payments. Thanks to them, he wrote in an August letter, the project offsets 71 percent of the cuts this year.   “What they’re really doing is trying on the eve of an election not to have seniors realize that the cuts to Medicare Advantage were real,” Issa told Fox News in an interview earlier this month.   But the department, while saying it is reviewing Issa’s letter, portrayed the program differently.   “The quality bonus payment demo is providing incentives to more (Medicare Advantage) plans to improve care, giving more patients high-quality choices in the program,” the department said in a written response to FoxNews.com. “It is consistent with previous demos.”   Earlier this year, the Government Accountability Office recommended that the Obama administration kill the bonus payment program — questioning the legal authority behind the system.   In his Wednesday letter to Sebelius, Issa described how Health and Human Services officials repeatedly claimed they were working on his committee’s request for documents. According to the letter, they told the panel on Oct. 3 they were “aiming for tomorrow” and “the copying machines are working overtime.”   The documents have not been turned over. Issa, in his letter, set a deadline of 5 p.m. ET on Thursday for meeting his demands — or else the committee will move to subpoena.   The letter was also signed by Rep. James Lankford, R-Okla., who chairs an oversight subcommittee.
