Skip to comments.Drudge's 'Liberty Tax' Proves How Little White House, Left Know About Business
Posted on 03/22/2014 6:08:45 AM PDT by PJ-Comix
Checking Breitbart News before bed last night (I'm both an employee and a fan), I thought I knew exactly what had happened based on the headline of Matthew Boyle's story about Matt Drudge paying a "Liberty Tax." Based on a previous tweet, I was already aware that Drudge was not going to enroll in ObamaCare. Therefore, I simply assumed he had filed his quarterly business taxes in advance, used Twitter to announce he had chosen to pay the ObamaCare fine, and in turn this had caused outrage from the Obama White House and Left.

The article on Talking Points Memo is still up this morning though. They may not ever admit they were not just ignoran, but behaving as they did, that they are prjcks — so not just ignorant, not just prjcks, but ignorant prjcks.
I wonder how many of these clowns will offer Drudge an apology and admit that they were wrong?
I am going to guess 0. It doesn’t fit their propaganda.
It really is testimony to the impossible complexity of the ACA and it's 2,700 pages of law and who-knows-how-many pages of the Federal Register administrative rules that people can so misunderstand what Drudge is correctly paying in his 2014 estimated taxes. The instructions for the current Form 1040ES, line 12, "Other Taxes," lists "additional Medicare tax" and refers the tax filer to IRS Form 8959. Self-employed individuals who earn over $200K-$250K owe an extra 0.9% tax on their Medicare wages, and it has to be paid in 2014; hence Drudge encountering it in doing his 2014 estimated taxes. And, if you dig a little further, you'll find out that this "additional Medicare tax" was imposed in the 2,700 pages of the ACA that we had to pass to find out what was in it.
2,200 pages of a law that DEMOCRAT congresscritters passed without reading, chock full of taxes, new IRS agents, death panels, higher deductibles, higher premiums, fewer doctors and hospitals, and on and on and on - and this is something Pelosi and her ilk say Democrats should run on. The biggest scam perpetrated on this country compliments of an inexperienced president and his barrage of non-business, marxist, hacks.
Obamacare is a gift the GOP better collect on come November.
This administration knows all about lying. With regard to Obamacare, they have shown time and again that they are expert and highly skilled practitioners in the art of deceit and outright lying. For them to accuse someone else of lying is pathetically laughable.
Drudge was mistaken to come out so quick to correct them.
A much deeper hole with many more shovelers would have been preferred. .02
“...by calling Drudge a liar.”
The favorite ploy of Progressives is to call opponents
One of their all-time favorites was to call soldiers “baby-killers”in the 1960’s.
And now, in the 21st century, they are the leading baby-killers of all time by way of “abortion rights”. (It would be wonderful if they went to all 59,000 plus graves and apologized to each and every one of those killed in SE Asia for their false accusations)
Not really, because their vapid readers will never hear the truth.
How hard it must be for them to hang on until 2015 when they can work with the “global community” to shut Drudge down.
oooh yeah, those obama bots are dumber than a box of rocks
Did not see an ‘amount’ while scanning the article, so it doesn’t mean much.
Did he pay the $95 or the 1% of his income? Without knowing his income, 1% could be a rather sizeable amount.
If he paid the 1%, was that greater or less than what the insurance premiums would have been for the year?
neither it was a medicare tax of .09%
“As this helpful IRS explainer details, Americans who go without insurance in 2014 should “make an individual shared responsibility payment with your 2014 tax return filed in 2015.” Ouch
I don’t claim to be an expert, I read it on the link I provided earlier, provided again below
College students, teachers & professors, media types, government workers, Obamaphone women, Trayvons, Starbucks employees ....
Not many Democrat groups would have any clue about this. Maybe hairdressers and trial lawyers? That’s about it.
But muslims lie and accuse others of lying. Obama is a muslim, and his legions are proud to help him lie.
you decked a woman?
and that proved you weren’t a baby killer?
you picked a weird strategy
If its not on the faculty lounge ‘post-it’ board they don’t know about it.
“I wonder how many of these clowns will offer Drudge an apology and admit that they were wrong?”
Because if you stick with a lie and repeat it often enough, it becomes the truth...a “go-to” tactic for oppressive regimes that has proven reliable for almost a century.
Exactly. Here is the IRS reference on the additional Medicare tax as implemented by Obamacare - http://www.irs.gov/Businesses/Small-Businesses-&-Self-Employed/Questions-and-Answers-for-the-Additional-Medicare-Tax
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 doesnt have to pay that Obamacare Tax until next year!!
They dont 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!!
“Whose next you feckin’ commies?!!”
Hats off to you.
He&& will freeze over when all of those punks apologize at the graves of all the people who didn’t make it home.
The only consolation will be, some day, to see them head for the hills when they’re voted out of office in droves, en masse, picking off the feathers from the tar.
Semper Fi, Welcome Home, Never Forget.
Maybe they are angry because they were planning to levy a late fee on all those who didn’t pay ‘like Drudge’ in their quarterly taxes after the tax filings next year for 2014, and he has now warned business owners of truth. Could it have been a plan all along to boost revenues through deception and a LATE penalty? Thereby hurting small businesses once again.
Back in 06’, my cuz’ just got back for R&R from Red Cloud at the DMZ. It was still the height of those anti-US pukes against the Iraq War.
When we picked him up from the airport, 3 of these idiots were picking on him because he still wore his uni when waiting near the tarmac. Eventually, there was a scuffle. Eventually the police came up and questioned everyone. He was smart enough to angle towards the security camera for evidence. Actually he decked one of them and he bled on the pavement.
The long story short: after questioning we were in the car going home and we asked him what the liberals said that ended with him decking one of them to the ground.
He said “oh the usual I hate the Iraq war, oil for war blah blah. But the one thing that blew my fuse was that they spit on my boots. It took me 2 hours to shine my boots.”
I apologize for nothing. upyourz
Democrats are stupid communist fools. They know so little about America, business, economics, or taxes. They will soon learn however that payment is what government wants most of all. Payment. Government is really about money.
Progressive are baby-killers.
The ultimate Progresives, Uncle Joe Stalin, Pol Pot,
Mao Tse Tung, not to mention Uncle Adolf, killed alot more than babies.
From those Progressive heroes the neo-Progressives take thier example.
Somebody is spamming the comments section with the Bill of Rights every few seconds, so it’s impossible to read the other comments. I wonder what they’re hiding?
she deserved to be decked
Thank you for doing that. I wanted it to happen every time I saw them on TV back then.
And, thank you for your service.....all of it.
Thx ... I’d do it again in a heartbeat.

Has anybody asked Pelosi, Reid or BO why they keep putting off its implementation if it is so awesome?
