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
