“I bet Obama and his ilk forgot about the quarterly tax being due for business. I bet they are scrambling and a little panicked.”
Since Obama nor his socialist elite administration have never ran a business, nor even had a job producing a thing, they don’t understand how the tax system works. They show their ignorance again and again. The media should be the one pointing this out but are instead complicit.
“Its ironic to see that the libs main (false) argument is that Drudge wont have to pay the penalty until next year. They arent arguing that it isnt bad. Just delayed. And its not.”
I find it ironic that their only point in all this is to inaccurately state he’s wrong about WHEN to pay the penalty. That is not the point of his tweet. Goes to show you can’t even talk to these illogical morons.
In MN, 140,000 people lost their coverage, 130,000 got coverage that didn’t have it prior. Of the 130,000 that were uninsured prior to obamacare, 70,000 are entirely subsidized (medicare/medicaid/SSDI).
So we had to boot 140K people who had insurance in order to provide for 130K who didn’t, but the 140K who just got booted have to pay more than double what they were paying, get worse coverage, have higher deductibles and out of pocket expenses - all so 130K can be leeches.
The country would have whiplash watching the coverage change from Obama's defenders denying there was a tax yet, to Obama's defenders demanding criminal charges against Rush and Drudge for not paying it! There would be no normal monetary penalty. They would cite the size of the crime (1% of Rush's sizable income!) by one of the 'evil rich' and demand both monetary penalties and jail! And they'd take away his cochlear implant's transmitter for 'safety reasons' while in jail, hoping the stretch of deafness would break his mind and will. They would have the FCC lean on all of Rush's stations to prevent any caretaker from maintaining "the felon's" program while incarcerated.
Maybe they could resist jumping Drudge, although I'd bet enough old Clinton hands would demand revenge for revealing Monica. But Rush would be an irresistible target. Any similarly guilty Hollywood types would be ignored.
May we live in less Interesting times.
