ObamaCare is on its way!

Oh, thrill! Oh, excitement!

We can all hardly wait.

The second phase begins in 2013 and it includes some long awaited condiments that we all have wanted, probably since the opening days of the Republic.

By now you know that tanning booths are already paying a penalty (tax) just for existing. It’s a 10% “sales tax” on indoor tanning sessions. It started in 2010.

Pharmaceutical companies that make or import brand-name drugs are already paying fees; they totaled $2.5 billion in 2011, their first year.

Well, that’s just the beginning.

Starting January 1, 2013, individuals making more than $200,000 per year will face an additional 3.8% tax on investment income. They will also face a .9% increase on Medicare taxes. It’s their “fair share.” A couple making more than $250,000 will face the same tax. This is not related to the proposal to increase taxes on the "rich" with regard to the fiscal cliff.

Drug companies insurers and medical device manufacturers will have to pay new fees and taxes. The companies that make pacemakers, artificial hips and coronary stents will be taxed 2.3% as an excise tax on their sales.

In 2014, employers with more than 50 employees, a very large segment of the small business community, must pay their employees health insurance premiums will face a penalty of $2,000 per employee, with the first 30 workers not counting toward the total.

The entire health insurance industry faces an annual fee that begins at $8 billion beginning in 2014.

The coups de grace is on people who don’t’ get health insurance. In 2014 their penalty will begin. By 2016, they will pay an average penalty of around $1,200 annually.

Roughly 20 million people will eventually receive a tax credit to help them pay for insurance premiums.

That makes a lot of sense, doesn’t it?

Take from them and then give them a tax credit.

That means that in order for the federal government to benefit at its desired level, the original tax has to be higher to compensate for the credit.

It is obviously going to give Americans great joy to pay these additional taxes and fees.

The ones who we can expect to be the happiest are the leftist/liberal/progressives who will just be ecstatic to send more of their hard-earned money to the government.

I am SO happy for them!

There are still millions of people wanting mega gifts from Obama-Claus.
Still thinking that, hell gave us a phone he gonna give us more now that we voted for him.. Yeah Right!
Just wait, Obamacare hasn't sunk in yet.
Just wait til the next Tax period comes around. Small business owners are gonna be so overwhelmed and over burdened that we are going to see layoffs by the millions and guess what? UN-employment is gonna skyrocket.
Well, yes .... of course! That´s the whole idea. Small business has been Obama´s target from the beginning. Did some people misunderstand? Did they really think that Obama gave a damn about the Middle-Class?

I´m still waiting to hear the reaction of those Obama supporters who really believed his promise that they would be allowed to keep their own medical plans when the insurance companies won't be able to compete. Full time employees will become part time employees. The stock market is going to go hay-wire and our retirements are going to hell in a hand basket. So wake up and smell the coffee, you wanted him and now you got him. The demise of the USA is in the Tea leaves. It should be obvious to anyone with half a brain that he wants to destroy this country and hés doing a damn good job of it. And with the MDM protecting him I dońt see how he can be stopped. Plus the blind lefty people are really so dumb, they can’t see the obvious .
And if ObamaCare is such a great deal, why did Congress exempt themselves from it?
Make no mistake about it, the Democrat/Liberal/Progressive Party is the real enemy of America and it´s future.

It´s not only Obamacare that I fear. This man has nothing good in store for the USA. Everything he does is intended to harm and destroy the country.
Michele Bachmann and others warned us over and over but she was called crazy.
The Obama years have turned me ugly -- I wish that all Democrats and all Democrat-voting independents suffer horribly from the results of socialist, nationalized medicine. And when they start wailing piteously, I intend to say, "Good! You wanted this, you thought it was a good idea. Thanks for destroying the best medical system in the world. Take two aspirin and die in the morning.."
Buckle up, it´s gonna be a bumpy 2013.

RR: They will be "able to keep their existing plans" if they don't mind paying a penalty, don't mind paying usurious prices and don't mind the additional rules and regs from the feds.

The leftists and pinkos who voted this idiocy in will indeed be stuck with the bill in the long run.

Those rich guys that they targeted to foot the bill will, like they always have and always will, find a way around getting screwed by Obamacare.

One easy way to get around this is to fire the poor schmucks that work for them full time, hire them back as temps or part-timers and avoid the penalties.

Liberals: they say they are looking out for the 'little guy.'

With guys like that looking out for us, who needs scalawaygs, villains and snipers?

Liberals are the personification of scalawaygs, villains and snipers.
