DUmmie FUnnies 03-22-14 (DUmmies Call Drudge LIAR On ObamaCare Tax Claim)
DUmmie FUnnies ^ | March 22, 2014 | DUmmies and PJ-Comix

Posted on 03/22/2014 8:09:01 AM PDT by PJ-Comix

Be prepared to experience a wonderful OOOPS moment. After the members of the DUmmieland Animal Farm fall over each other in calling Matt Drudge a LIAR, Liar, Liar: TPM Catches Drudge With His Pants Down, over his claim about paying the ObamaCare tax, a Kewpie Doll Award Winner corrects them and then the thread pretty much goes silent. However, the DUmmies shouldn't feel alone in their idiocy. Much of the left and the Obama Regime has made the same mistake and ended up with egg on their collective faces as you can see HERE. So let us now watch the DUmmies scream LIAR at Matt Drudge in Bolshevik Red only to be forced into silence with their tails between their legs while the commentary of your humble correspondent, wondering if WILLIAM RIVERS PITT, has been forced into Witness Protection since posting his ObamaCare heresy, is in the [brackets]:

Liar, Liar: TPM Catches Drudge With His Pants Down

[Stupid, Stupid: DUFUs Catches DUmmie kpete With His Brain Down.]

Just paid the Obamacare penalty for not 'getting covered'... I'M CALLING IT A LIBERTY TAX!— MATT DRUDGE (@DRUDGE) March 21, 2014



There's just one problem: Americans don't pay a penalty for not having health insurance until they file their 2014 taxes -- in 2015. So either Drudge is lying or he paid a huge penalty a year earlier than he needed to.

[And now more DUmmies follow DUmmie kpete in his ignorance.]

Were there eggs involved?

[Only the ones about to end up on ALL your faces.]

This was a very stupid lie by Drudge. Either Drudge has an idiot doing his taxes or he is lying

[Or...All of you are complete idiots as we shall see. Hee! Hee!]

Typical Republican spending habits. Spend a bunch of money on nothing, then lie about it. nt

[The "nt" stands for "no thinking."]

Drudge is such Lair and obviously hates Obamacare as much as all the other assholes who lie about it.

[Lair! Lair! Okay folks, here comes that great OOPS moment that pretty much shuts down this thread...]

This is incorrect. Businesses (and individuals) must pay estimated taxes at least quarterly. If you haven't paid most of your 2014 taxes already before the April 2015 filing deadline you owe additional penalties. Since it is nearing the end of March, Drudge likely is referring to paying his first quarter's estimated tax. Since Drudge apparently knows he won't be purchasing the required health insurance at all during the year he knows what his penalty will be and can add 1/4th of it to his first estimated tax payment to avoid additional penalties.

[OOOPS! And DUmmie PoliticAverse WINS a Kewpie Doll for having a brief moment of mental clarity. However, DUmmie randome looks desperately for a way out of the hole the DUmmies have dug themselves into.]

The penalty only applies for businesses with more than 50 employees. And even then the penalty isn't payable until 2016. So Drudge is a flat-out liar. And the more pissy Tweets he makes on the subject, the worse he looks. He may be heading for a full-blown meltdown.

[Unfortunately for him, the Kewpie Doll Award winner adds this tidbit...]

Is he referring to the business penalty or the individual one (which is in effect now)?

[And DUmmie Randome tries one last desperate bid to extricate himself from the tar patch...]

In one of his Tweets, he mentioned the penalty that small businesses pay. Either way, he clearly lied when he said he paid a penalty unless he has more than 100 employees, which TPM and Huffington Post doubt.

[But the Kewpie Award Winner has this "sad" info for DUmmie ranDUmb...]

In his tweet he says "Ministry of Love calls it the 'Individual Shared Responsibility Payment'" implying it is the individual penalty now in effect not the business one that Obama delayed.

[That was 9:35 PM yesterday, after which the humiliated DUmmies pretty much shut up except for this tidbit from DUmmie Mariana...]

Doesn't matter that he lied or that his lie was so easy to disprove. All his fans will believe it anyway. He wins.

[You're right. He wins because YOUR lies about him were easy to prove wrong. WINNING!!!]

Questions and Answers for the Additional Medicare Tax

On Nov. 26, 2013, the IRS issued final regulations (TD 9645) implementing the Additional Medicare Tax as added by the Affordable Care Act (ACA). The Additional Medicare Tax applies to wages, railroad retirement (RRTA) compensation, and self-employment income over certain thresholds. Employers are responsible for withholding the tax on wages and RRTA compensation in certain circumstances.

LOL they don’t call it a correction. They call it an “update” at the end of the story.

Not surprised at all. If leftists understood how business people could be absolutely tortured by taxes and how invasive they were, to the place were even the smallest, newest businesses have to hire expensive professionals to protect them they wouldn’t be such avid government controllers. How many times have I heard people like Colmes say, “Oh, just go to court? Oh, just hire an accountant?”

I had a young friend start a small, new business. He was one day late filing a form (he was unaware of)where he had to check a box confirming he was still at a certain address. The fine was $500, his entire month’s profit.

When I tell small business tax or zoning stories to ardent libs, they simply refuse to believe them. They will challenge you outright, like the clueless at DU. Leftists are unaware of the barrage of paper business owners get, and how difficult it is to comply with it.

:: wondering if WILLIAM RIVERS PITT, has been forced into Witness Protection ::

I’m thinking Skinner may have given him the “stealth granite cookie” because he was featured in
(i) DUmmie FUnnies
(ii) NewsBusters
(iii) Daniel Greenfield

Seems he might have too much “Republican Cred” for the DUmp?

There are a surprising number of posts in the Huffpo comments that understand paying taxes.

When I first saw his headline, I thought it was odd since we don’t pay that tax until next year, and then I realized that as a self-employed worker, he pays quarterly taxes.

I am surprised that Drudge has never purchased health insurance though. I totally oppose the government requiring health insurance, but also think that most people should at least have a catastrophic policy, because you never know when you might have a heart attack or a brain aneurism, and even if you are relatively wealthy, it might be hard to scrape together the money in short order to pay for treatment.

Rush doesn't purchase health insurance either.

Rush Limbaugh doesn’t have insurance either. I suppose when you’re as wealthy and reviled as the two of them are, it’s worth it not to have your insurance records “leaked” to the media every time you go to the doctor.

Well, I don’t know how successful Drudge is, but I doubt he is making 10s of millions of dollars a year like Rush. Rush probably has a million dollars in readily available cash.

When I was a child, my parents paid cash for every doctor visit. It was just the way it worked, and it worked well.

Now get off my lawn! Heh.

Drudge is annually estimated to generate $10-15 million annually in profit based on pretty standard CPM rates for internet advertising.

The value of the site, if 15-25x multiple of earnings is used as a multiplier, is $150-375 million.

http://www.businessinsider.com/drudge-report-is-worth-2012-10

Regardless there’s no way Drudge isn’t pulling a minimum of $5 million personally out of his business annually.

Given the fact that you never hear about his plane, golf outings, lavish Florida estate et al like Rush?

He undoubtedly had millions of dollars in ready cash.

Rush might talk about his plane, golf outings and other things, but I respect him. When Rush golf, it’s not costing the taxpayers dollars.

And that's it in a nutshell why every libtard Moonbat, except one, was clueless on Drudge's *lie*. Not a single one has, or had, the balls to take a f--king risk with their own g-dd-mn money, go into business for themselves, and be 'Self Employed'.

Hell, it's much easier to work for someone who did take that risk -- likely an evil right-wing Rethug whom they loath -- and then b-tch and moan about the pay, working conditions, the owners' paycheck, or just a gazillion other imaginary wrongs inflicted on the poor moonbat by, 'That 1% Motherf--ker' in the corner office.

Or, like 99.963% of all DUmmies; Live in a Pizza Box Fort down in mommy's basement and play Donkey Kong all day, while sucking off the teat of taxpayers with never ending 99 week unemployment comp. Or with an EBT Card, a *free* ObamaPhone, and direct deposit welfare checks.

Friggen chickensh-t parasites.
