Here’s a rundown of seven ObamaCare tax hikes that affect the hoi polloi
No. 1. The Individual Mandate Excise Tax.
Starting in 2014, anyone not buying “qualifying” health insurance must pay an income tax surtax. It goes up each year until 2016 and beyond when a couple would pay a tax of the higher of $1,360 or 2.5% of adjusted gross income.
No. 2. The Over-The-Counter Drugs Trap.
Since Jan. 1, 2011, employees with health savings accounts, flexible spending accounts or health reimbursement accounts have no longer been able to use pre-tax funds stashed in these accounts to buy over-the-counter medicines for allergy relief and the like without a doctor’s prescription (there’s an exception for insulin).
No. 3. The Healthcare Flexible Spending Account Cap.
Starting Jan. 1, 2013, employees will face a $2,500 cap on the amount of pre-tax salary deferrals they can make into a healthcare flexible spending account. There is no cap under current law. In light of the new cap, employee benefits groups are lobbying for Congress to modify the use-it-or-lose-it rule that means employees forfeit unused funds in their accounts at the end of the plan year.
No. 4. The Medical Itemized Deduction Hurdle.
Starting Jan. 1, 2013, taxpayers who face high medical expenses will only be allowed a deduction for expenses to the extent they exceed 10% of adjusted gross income, up from 7.5% now. Taxpayers 65 and older can still use the old 7.5% threshold through 2016. For how to score the medical expense deduction before 2013, click here.
No. 5. The Health Savings Account Withdrawal Penalty.
Since Jan. 1, 2011, taxpayers who withdraw money from health savings accounts for non-medical expenses before age 65 face a 20% penalty, up from 10% before.
No. 6. The Indoor Tanning Services Tax.
Since July 1, 2010, folks using indoor tanning salons face a new 10% excise tax. This one hasn’t been bringing in as much revenue as anticipated.
No. 7. The Cadillac Health Insurance Plan Tax.
Starting in 2018, there will be a new 40% excise tax on taxpayers who are covered by high-cost health insurance plans (with premiums at or above $10,200 for a single or $27,500 for a family). Insurers or employers who are self-insured will pay the tax, but it is expected to trickle down to mean higher costs for consumers.
Americans For Tax Reform has a full list of ObamaCare’s 20 new or higher taxes on American families and small businesses.
These people never learn.

How many of these were actually posted by me and not the one who worships me?
#43653 Nov 28, 2012
I saved your racist posts. I never denied that. But I have no file on the stupid shit you wingnuts said leading up to the election.
But like I said before - you're EXTRA sensitive about people tracking down past posts, aren't you? LOL!
BTW - I do not lie. You may not agree with my opinions, but I do not lie. And you know it.
#43654 Nov 28, 2012
Bullshit. The conspiracy was not to mislead the American public but to mislead America's enemies.
And Susan Rice didn't do it - the CIA did.
Try to catch up on the facts, boxtard. You're making yourself look stupid.
#43655 Nov 28, 2012
Bullshit. Everyone did all they could.
You are spreading a debunked lie. No serious person believes this nonsense.
#43656 Nov 28, 2012
You thought I was a religious man? Really? Then why have you always accused me of the opposite?
Oh that's right - you're lying again.
#43657 Nov 28, 2012
Post my rules? WTF?
Grow up, Roger.
#43658 Nov 28, 2012
False. I fully and completely addressed the issue.
Still trolling just like taxnomore. Still posting other people's words just like taxnomore.
You ARE taxnomore, aren't you?
#43659 Nov 28, 2012
They are all you. Go check. Every single one.
#43660 Nov 28, 2012
OK, so we have none of that, and still get bent over for taxes.
The private sector and market forces will produce, the government will consume.
Safe water with brain rotting fluoride added per the government?
GMO food approved by the government (via Monsanto lobby), does not even need to be tested or labeled - like in Russia?
Police protection - are you a fool, the police respond! It is your responsibility to defend and protect yourself and your family. More like we want protection from the police state.
Good education comes from private schools, or suburban districts with high taxes (which is a damn shame). The government only screws up education. Do a study of the top high schools in America, I highly doubtoubt if any of them are in recipient class areas.
Safe medicines - yeah there is a great track record of that, the FDA really does their job so well - those with the most $$$ get approvals.
Air travel is safe, the TSA are the ones doing the terrorism now. Let the privately owned airlines protect their own property.

Tsk tsk, danny BOY.
Lying about the data base you keep of Topix comments confirms your obsession in tracking your adversaries' posts, doesn't it BOY.
Paste the Google search string, BOY, that you used to pull up the half dozen 'Ted' posts you quoted in post #43620 then aggregated and posted in five minutes time.
What's that, BOY, you can't? Saying you used Google was just another danny BOY lie wasn't it.
Not very honest, are you BOY.
Your vivid fantasies that others fantasize about you is just your narcissism whispering. You're just not very bright to believe it. LOL!
danny BOY's Topix reputation:'white privilege' racist, unrepentant plagiarist, pathological liar.
#43662 Nov 28, 2012
BOY, you make yourself look stupid with your own conspiracy theories. Again. As usual. LOL!
But you at least confirm there IS a conspiracy-of-lies and cover up under Obama's executive 'leadership'. Isn't the CIA under Obama's executive authority, BOY?
Obama's White House let four die--one an ambassador--rather than risk confirming the obvious before the election--that despite Obama killing Bin Laden <smirk>, Al Qaeda is alive and well and killing Americans.
Try to catch up on the facts, BOY.
You can't speak without lying, can you danny BOY.
#43663 Nov 28, 2012
Just when I think you can't be any stupider, you go and post a steaming pile like this.
Google "site:topix.com ted johnstown obama lose" The first result from this thread is a pager where you said:
You posted a whole lot of stupid shit days before the election. Anybody with more than half a brain can find it (which obviously explains why you couldn't. LOL!)
Just because you're a dumbass who doesn't know how to use Google doesn't make me a liar, WATB.
#43664 Nov 28, 2012
Nobody "let" anybody die. The administration followed the CIA's advice. If they hadn't you'd be pitching a hissy about them not respecting the judgment of the CIA.
No serious person is still hung up on this non-issue. It's just more partisan distortions and lies. Hell, even Grandpa McCain is backing off. Only mentally defective bullshit artists such as yourself are still talking about it.
Grow up, Ted WATB. You're taking childish whining to a brand new level. LOL!

No files but you saved my racist posts?
Did you save your posts that led up to my so called racists posts?
Did you save the post where I explained why my posts appeared racist? You know....I gave it back to your the same as you gave it out.
Did you save the posts where I said some of my closest friends are black?
Did you save the post where I had my black friends read your so called definition of what a racist is and their comments, one was you and your thinking is one reason why racism continues?
I could go on and on about your BS of calling me a racist but there is no sense in doing so. You just keep referring to my previous posts with your spin. I won't go there again with you.
Dan the Man, when you know you are posting half truths and it changes the story you lie. When you put a spin on a story it's a lie.
Now, you show me proof that I know you don't lie? Just because you hide behind an ID and say you don't lie is not proof.
My final question to you is why do you keep files on my comments that you call racist? Do you forward these to Morris Dees?
My suggestion to you is if you want to fight racism then start with exposing the black racists that you defend. Then and only then will I ever consider what you post as worth replying to.
Racism is not limited to color.

Bush and congress, many which were democrats relied on intelligence reports yet Bush is the only one condemned for going into Iraq. Oh, why has Obama expanded war and is the cost of Obama and his war for the last four years Bush's fault?
Obama watched and four Americans died. Campaigning was more important than dealing with this serious situation. After all is was to close to the election to bring out the truth.

You should look things up to be sure of what you are saying. The strongest party IS NOT the democrat party, it is the independent party. The numbers are 40% are independents, 31% are democrats, and 29% are republicans. What these numbers are saying is that the majority of people are fed up with republicans and democrats and heading for the independent party.
Look it up if you don't believe me.
#43668 Nov 28, 2012
in Pennsylvania "Independent" means no choice in primaries.
#43669 Nov 28, 2012
In some states that can be crittical, but in Pennsylvania it really isn't an issue and the reason I said that is because by the name Pa. votes in the primary, the candidate has already been decided.
I am an independent and that has never been a problem for me. In 2008, Obama already had the nomination locked up by the time he hit Pa. The same thing this year with Romney.
Not all states are like Pa. and deny voting in the primary.
Regardless, the independent party has the most people and it's the independents that BOTH parties (dems and gop) are always trying to win over to their side because no one really knows what way they are going and many times its the independents that win the elections, not the democrats or republicans.
