Half of America celebrates but the rest of us know the plagues Obamacare will bring us on Jan.1

Those who are “whooping it up” over Barack Obama and his Party’s victory won’t care about this list of taxes and other plagues that will be forced on us by Obamacare come next January.

Some are blissfully ignorant of what is coming; others have always been content to be surfs and still others know all this and don’t give a damn – they like hanging out and drinking beer in the park. Nevertheless, those who voted for Barack Obama still work and have a real life have big surprises coming their way.

The most serious plague of re-electing Barack Obama is that it has put into peril the spiritual life of his Christian and Orthodox Jewish supporters. Someday they will be called upon to explain their support for those who desecrate God’s laws.

Obamacare will force faith based medical facilitates to close or commit abortions. Obama’s voters have opted for a free phone and a loaf of cheese rather than standing tall for the laws of God.

On a secular and immediately tangible level Obamacare does not make anything about healthcare free for anyone for very long. The few years of false “healthcare prosperity” that we’ll see in the short run will eventually give way to a harsh new reality.

Less than two month from now the threshold after which medical expenses are deductible will rise from 7.5% to 10%. This will be a very serious problem for many people – some who voted for Obama and don’t know it whether they realize it or not.

There are 24 million Americans who have Flexible Spending Accounts, and doubtlessly many voted for Obama. In less than two months a new federally imposed $2,500 annual cap will take the place of the current $5,000….

Heck, the’ve been, in effect, taxing God-Given, unalienable rights like “Life, Liberty & Pursuit of Happiness”, for years; why not healthcare? (rhetorical)

If it merely exists, they’ll tax it. That who and what they are...

There actually was no cap, just a guidance number.

Right. It should be noted though that if both spouses work and both make more than $2500/year, both can elect to contribute $2500 each.

And also, the Dep Care FSA remains unchanged at a $5K cap (thank goodness for me.)

That cap will decimate Orthodontist, I heard of one that sold his practice, I am wondering if it was in anticipation of this. It also effects the parents of special needs kids and not in a good way, they are livid...

Interesting and probably somewhat true but really I don't see it. Instead of saving $5K tax free you save $2500 tax free (a spouse can also do $2500 into the FSA is spouse also works). I wouldn't forgo braces for my kid because I was taxed on $2500 bucks.

But as a parent of a special needs 6 year old, yes, this would suck but my wife works so we're okay. Unless of course you have an HSA plan in which case you can not have a healthcare FSA. It's all a shell game.

I’m hoping that the House defunds any Obamcare agency and that the states reject it. It seems that’s all we have,

LOL. Thanks the hearty laugh. With Boehner as Speaker there will likely be over funding of Obamacare.

If anything thinks Boehner will do ONE thing to fight Obama, they are delusional.

And it has started.

Just now I received a call from my diabetes doctor's office. She is closing her practice as of December 20th. A few months ago she told me she would retire rather than practice under obamacare. During today's call I found out that another doctor in the practice was also quitting for the same reason.

This morning my husband scheduled an appointed with his ortho doctor to have his second knee replacement surgery. She told my husband "It is about time. After February the doctor will no longer be taking patients or do surgeries.

Do any of you have a doctor who plans on quitting his practice because of obamacare?

My Doctor retired this year. Even before Obamacare he was fed up with forms, delinquent payments for Insurance and Government, disputes and partial payments with same that took up a lot of his time, lawyers, rules, regulations, paperwork requirements and general business regulations in the State on top of the fed. His wife is a lawyer, the only reason he survived his years in practice. Insurance coverage ate up most of his income and it was hardly worth working just to pay liability insurance. He was fed up already. He is only 55 but threw in the towel.
