‘LIBERTY TAX’: WHITE HOUSE, MEDIA ATTACK AFTER DRUDGE PAYS OBAMACARE OPT-OUT PENALTY
BREITBART ^ | March 21 2014 | MATTHEW BOYLE

Posted on 03/21/2014 7:28:08 PM PDT by MeshugeMikey

A White House aide set off a stampede of liberal media criticism for Internet news pioneer Matt Drudge over Obamacare – but his critics don't seem to understand how small businesses pay taxes . The brouhaha started when Drudge tweeted, “Just paid the Obamacare penalty for not 'getting covered'... I'M CALLING IT A LIBERTY TAX.”

I bet Obama and his ilk forgot about the quarterly tax being due for business. I bet they are scrambling and a little panicked.

The Marxists are calling him a liar saying you don’t have to pay it till next year, but doesn’t someone like Drudge who is self employed have to pay quarterly?

A small business or an independent consultant or self employed would be paying 1st quarter 2015 IRS with holding in March. This would have to include any possible tax penality else the payee would be considered to be under with holding and subject to a possible penality. The problem is that the Drudge critics were never required to make quarterly with holding. Smucks!

All the talk about “slavery reparations” based on race for harmed parties that are no longer alive make me wonder about “slavery reparations” for us of any race that are slaves to the state.

That goes to show you how much the media - and even the White House - knows about small business in the USA!

The White House and the media claim that Matt Drudge doesn’t have to pay that Obamacare Tax until next year!!

They don’t seem to realize that small business has to pay their tax into IRS - quarterly!

This just goes to show you how ignorant and inept Obama and his people are!!

Being Obama, I think the appropriate word sounds similar to cAke, with a different vowel sound.

If he sold his House and it exceeded the Obamacare Property Valuation Penalty amount, he would have paid a new Obamacare Tax last Year.

Not relevant to us hourly contractors. :-P

The whole thing is amazing, really. Rome in its final throws.

Nobody really gets that this is so absurd that complying is the height of stupidity. I cancelled insurance because to continue is to comply. I was a religious seat belt wearer until it became the law. Then I stopped for years.

That was stupid. But cancelling your health care insurance is patriotic. It’s the first, relatively painless, act against runaway fascism.

What kills me is how they called it a tax, insisted even, then it is suddenly a penalty after they won in court. I’d love to hear Roberts explain that one considering the individual mandate was deemed legal through a lie.

Those paying quarterly taxes are paying 2014 1st Qtr quarterly taxes soon. Poor losers like me have a corporate employer as well as a small business. My corporate employer extracts health care payments, but I am investigating a way to opt out. I am looking at retirement from the corporate system to gain more control over my life which will never include zer0-care. FUBO!

Great story. I wonder if Matt knew what he was doing when he tweeted that.

He may have, though sprung the trap a little early. Should have waited until monday and really start the week off for Obama. Imagine the Obamanaughts on the talking head shows over the weekend. Matt should have taken 2 days of heat then sprung the trap. You know MSNBC would have been all over this pounding it all weekend, only to wake up monday morning with the start of a week long headache.

Small businesses and people who are independent contractors, must pay quarterly taxes, IN ADVANCE. They have to guess what they’re going to make and pay taxes on it. Right now, they’re paying their estimated first quarter taxes for 2014.

Drudge is telling the truth.

It’s ironic to see that the libs’ main (false) argument is that Drudge won’t have to pay the penalty until next year. They aren’t arguing that it isn’t bad. Just delayed. And it’s not.

Don’t these “smartest rulers” realize that people will hold them accountable for health care outcomes? They take over and they own it. Some Georgia hot head has their mom die from red tape delays and hot head pays their congress critter and possibly the critter’s whole DNA chain a pay back?

They’ve backed off the ‘slave reparations’ talk since someone pointed out that it was Obama’s ancestors who sold the slaves to begin with.

The WH knows nothing until they make things up.

Just like their 51% of voters moron LIV base. The LIV will believe ANYTHING spouted by the RAT party and ignore all FACTS broadcast by the GOP.

The country is indeed over as you and I knew it yesterday. ITS OVER - Article V will take longer to implement than the country has left to survive the financial catastrophe that awaits us all. The dollar will be collapsed.

That's what happens when you've never had a real job, with a real boss that pays real taxes, quarterly. It's hilarious how ignorant these fools are. Tweeting that Matt Drudge was lying was the ultimate "You might be an idiot if....Here's your sign", Jeff Foxworthy moment.
