Obamacare taxes don't tell anyone


You may not be aware of all the taxes and fees hidden inside the thousands of pages of regulations that is the monstrosity of Obamacare. There are some things like such as the new 3.8% tax on unearned income that have absolutely nothing to do with health care and are more about clearly about redistribution of wealth that Obama is so bent on.

Barack Obama and his liberal minions will swear up and down he has not taxed the middle class, but these hidden taxes in the Affordable Healthcare bill will affect everyone in middle and lower income brackets the most. These taxes and fees actually tend to harm the sick because they are not earning regular income or they are on a lower fixed income if they are sick enough or old enough. One of the new taxes is the medical device tax, which can apply to all manner of medical aids that poor people will have the most difficult time paying.

There is also a 2 percent levy on every health plan. Just to understand this: the Supreme Court of the United States ruled Obamacare was a tax, so that means the US government is taxing a tax. They are forcing you to buy something, calling it a tax, penalizing you if you do not buy it, and then taxing you 2% on something they are already calling a tax.

How do they get away with that?

Here comes the ObamaCare tax bill.

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.
