And You Thought It Was Going To Get Better In 2014 Under ObamaCare? WRONG!


I am amused at the masses who actually think in their little understanding minds that it is going to get better in America in 2014. How sadly wrong they are! They have more new taxes coming at them than a flock of birds. The masses are going to pay so many hidden taxes and fees that they can hardly shake a stick at all of them. The poor souls are now financially stretched out to such an extent, they can hardly exist. Do you actually think Marxist Communist Obama gives a tinkers damn? He does not! More progressive Communist taxes and fees coming against the tired and financially overburdened. I say to the masses, you wanted this Marxist bum as your president .... well you got him, and he is already prepared to throw each and every one of you under his bus. I suggest you share this newly found knowledge of the oncoming taxes and fees with everyone you can.

President signs up for ObamaCare – but won’t use it

WASHINGTON — 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. 
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.
