Yet a detailed analysis of this issue by Heritage Foundation experts found that the Office of Personnel Management does not have the legal authority to do what the Obama Administration promised Congress last night.

America is finished. If we ever get control of this corrupt government again it would be time for tar and feather.

I didn’t think the OPM could just do that.. citing ‘pressure’ from Capitol Hill. The valets at Congress could flood their lines posing as legislators, or even calling on their own behalf! and the OPM could just act on that? Another thread:

One of these days someone in that administration is going to make a mistake and actually do something right.

This could be seen as a change of subject for this thread but it’s in line with most everything else they get wrong in that administration.

I ran across this today in the obamacare Survival Guide and found it interesting. We’ve all gotten the emails about a 3.8% tax on sales of real estate that is spelled out in obamacare. Anyone getting them has (hopefully) checked it out for accuracy. They find the limits etc., when they do and find the email not entirely TRUE.

HOWEVER, something we haven’t been told is that Clinton signed a special homeowner’s exemption to the capital gains tax in the ‘90’s which remains in place today and neutralizes the obamacare tax in most cases!

Remember that the next time that same email reaches your inbox again. Send it back with the correct info and maybe we can stop the circulation of bad info.

Of course, even with this still valid exemption in place doesn’t preclude these crooks from ignoring it and going for the 3.8% tax....

Do yourself a favor and follow the link in reply #2 and go read the Heritage article on this. It is long and very complicated.

I managed to wade through it and am glad there won’t be a test on it :)

My thought after resting my eyes for a few minutes: what a Fluster Cuck.

This is an awful lot to go through just to eventually get to single payer.

Does anyone reading these stories on FR honestly believe this WH clown cares one whit what the law says? If so, you have been asleep for 5 years. How did Zero get permission to rewrite the Obamacare law and extend it's implementation date for employers? The same way he decided Congress was in recess and promptly made recess appointments to the DEM controlled NLRB, and the same way he went to war in Libya and ignored the 90 day notification and requirement to get Congress approval under the War Powers Act (whether I agree with this Act or not - he did it).

THE GOP RUN HOUSE IGNORES EVERY LAW THS ASS#%T HAS BROKEN AND ALL THEY CAN DO IS SIC ISSA ON IT TO HOLD ENDLESS HEARINGS.

THIS IS NOT WHAT THE FOUNDERS IMAGINED OF THE SEPARATION OF POWERS FOR OUR CONSTITUTIONAL REPUBLIC.

AUTHOR: Benjamin Franklin (1706–90)

QUOTATION: “Well, Doctor, what have we got—a Republic or a Monarchy?”

“A Republic, if you can keep it.”


It would appear to me we as a nation have no intention of keeping it.

Exactly. So what if they can’t LEGALLY do this. They can ACTUALLY do it.

Laws are for the ruled, not the rulers. And yes, this is tryranny, plain and simple. But we won’t do anything about it. To be blunt, we can’t. They have all the power, they get 140+% voters in elections (re: Lt. Col. West), and nothing happens. Except if we speak up too loud, we get audited. Or worse.

It’s done, people. The only reason I feel kind of safe enough to risk posting anything like this is that I live in Texas, and we still (mostly) do that “rule of law” thing here. Example: Corrupt cops and officials get arrested by the Texas Rangers. Just happened recently. Again.

But I do realize that even this last bastion won’t hold out forever.

Silly writer. When will they realize Obama does whatever he feels like regarding the law. Including ignoring them completely. A compliant media facilitates it also.
