Skip to comments.Obama bullies small employers with bogus perjury charges, threats of prison
Posted on 02/16/2014 8:06:49 AM PST by Oldpuppymax
The most thoroughly corrupt Regime in the nations history has told the Treasury Departmentread, I.R.Sthat beginning immediately, the nations small business owners must certify that they are not shedding full-time workers simply to avoid the [ObamaCare employer] mandate. Officials said employers will be told to sign a self-attestation on their tax forms affirming this, under penalty of perjury.
Could there be any example of outright thuggery which is more quintessentially Barack? Imagine employers being required to swear, under penalty of perjury, hand over heart and head bowed in supplication to The One that they, as business owners, have not taken an action that they have every legal right to take.
And could there be a less subtle way to inform the nations employers that...

..the little boy king is upset.
It's what's for dinner.
It’s been a long time since I was forced to read the communist manifesto. From which page is this tactic?
Not that this has anything to do with this thread, but, just what is a fatwa anyway?
There is always a turd in the Zero’s punch bowl.
“Say, anybody at the US Chamber of Commerce care to take a break from criticizing the Tea Party and stand up for small bidness?”
Nope, the “Chamber of Amnesty” has bigger fish to fry.
how long can we go on pretending to our children that there is some meaning in this existence
a fatwa is an islamic order from one of their religious Imam’s to engage in a “holy war” against some person or group
In other words, by orders of the Dictator, small businesses must go out of business if they can’t make a profit because of the burden of ObamaCare? If they don’t have standing in a class action lawsuit against this outrage, then our judicial system should be dismantled as totally worthless.
Obama is a pile of human ecrement why he gets away with what he does leaves a lot to be desired.
Not that I'm suggesting that has any relevance to what this thread is all about.
I'm jes sayin'.
Small employers soon to begin bullying Obummer with bogus presidency charges, threats of prison and deportation and other stuff.
zer0 IS the turd in the nations punch bowl
Comparing Ubama with a pile of human excrement is uncalled for.
There's no need to go insulting piles of human excrement.
I apologize on behalf of MooseKnuckles to piles of human excrement everywhere. And you know who you are.
Don't you, DU lurkers?
Let’s not forget career military people.
“There is always a turd in the Zeros punch bowl.”
Yup...HE is the Turd!...
The FCC was created by FDR as a tool to silence his radio critics. Looks like Obama has revived the tool. Political officers placed in press newsrooms is one scary development.
If a payment is a tax, and not a penalty, the Supreme Court has already ruled that tax avoidance is perfectly legal. See Gregory v. Helvering,1935, opnion written by Learned Hand, who said...
Anyone may so arrange his affairs that his taxes shall be as low as possible; he is not bound to choose that pattern which will best pay the Treasury; there is not even a patriotic duty to increase one’s taxes.
Republicants don’t recognize fascism when it slaps them around, and democrips embrace fascism warmly.
To me, this is a no-brainer.
But I'm sure the Republican leadership can come up with all kinds of reasons why they can't do it.
From where I am sitting, there is no more “Republican” leadership; they are complicit. Our government is no longer “ours”, it is theirs and they intend to keep it that way.
Joe owns a business, and because of lower demand for his product, Joe has to lay off one employee or cut his hours to part-time. Joe's healthcare bill would be reduced by this action.
How can he NOT be guilty of perjury?
And who decides whether he is guilty?
And why would Joe EVER hire another full-time employee?
Do not comply
I sent this article and a letter to my Senator and Rep. in congress.
Hopefully they get complaints about this and finally wake up that this is much worse than anything Nixon ever did.
Take the oath then show your books and how you intend to cut costs and increase profits so you can pay more taxes. It’s the patriotic thing to do.
Ideas so good they are mandatory. :-)
Talk about a waste of money. The “reporters” only report what the white house tells them to report. Are they afraid there is about to be a revolt? Or maybe the guy from the feds is actually the pay-off guy, the bag man.
It's the exact opposite of a skinnywa...
How can you commit perjury by swearing and failing to do something that in itself was illegal?
Barry REALLY doesn’t want lots of stories coming out about how jobs are being lost due to Obamacare. This prevents any business owner from saying to any reporter “Due to Obamacare’s added expenses, I had to eliminate XXX positions”.
Who needs a Legislative or Judicial Branch of Gov’t? We have the Negro-In-Chief who has usurped these branches entirely. And we have about 50% of the population who supports him, because he is black and a Democrat.
Thus for those small businesses that must shed because of ObamaCare, their options are lie or go out of business?
In other words, small businesses must lie like Barack Hussein?
Little Andy can move back to Italy where his kind of gangsterism comes from.
It was a black day when the corrupt Cuomo family was allowed into our country, hundreds of years after better people made the heroic efforts to establish it as a land of individual freedom.
He can move to Sicily and run a protection racket, I’m sure that will make him a Big Man.
So right, So corrrect and insightful. And the subbsequent IRS audit will not be connected with it in any way.This spake the boy king.
“Anyone may arrange his affairs so that his taxes shall be as low as
possible; he is not bound to choose that pattern which best pays the
treasury. There is not even a patriotic duty to increase one’s taxes.
Over and over again the Courts have said that there is nothing sinister
in so arranging affairs as to keep taxes as low as possible. Everyone
does it, rich and poor alike and all do right, for nobody owes any
public duty to pay more than the law demands.”
Judge Learned Hand..... United States judge and judicial philosopher. He served on the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York and later the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit.
I haven’t seen any business owners speaking up on this. I’m guessing they are afraid of losing their business.
There is no law against a thing and suddenly it is illegal.
U.S. Appeals Court Judge Learned Hand famously wrote in Helvering v. Gregory, 69 F.2d 809 (1934) that,
Justice Hand uses the word "cant" here. It's a hard to find the definition of this seldom-used word. Here it is:
Anyone may arrange his affairs so that his taxes shall be as low as possible; he is not bound to choose that pattern which best pays the treasury. There is not even a patriotic duty to increase ones taxes.
Over and over again the Courts have said that there is nothing sinister in so arranging affairs as to keep taxes as low as possible. Everyone does it, rich and poor alike and all do right, for nobody owes any public duty to pay more than the law demands:
Taxes are enforced exactions, not voluntary contributions.
To demand more in the name of morals is mere cant.
- insincere, especially conventional expressions of enthusiasm for high ideals, goodness, or piety.
- the private language of the underworld.
- the phraseology peculiar to a particular class, party, profession, etc.: the cant of the fashion industry.
- whining or singsong speech, especially of beggars.
verb (used without object)
- to talk hypocritically.
- to speak in the whining or singsong tone of a beggar; beg.
Islamics "putting out a hit" on someone or some organization.
Ah. Not that that's what's going on here.
Maybe a comparison with the Communist regimes of Eastern Europe would be more accurate...and more in keeping with the ideological roots of the Democratic Party. They don’t have concentration camps and aren’t shooting people to get the others to comply, but they are trying to achieve total control by intimidating people through audits, fines, and excessive bail, with the threat of imprisonment (see Dinesh D’Souza and the filmmaker whose stupid video did not cause the attack in Benghazi).
