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:
THIS WILL MAKE YOU WANT TO THROW UP (Congress exempts self from pain of Obamacare)
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.
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.
PS Hi NSA pukes. BTW, enjoying butting up against some serious hackers at DefCon? Got non-hacker friends who are attending. The serious hackers are truly pizzed off at you. Fools. That was a hornets’ nest you should not have kicked...

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.
