As of now, I am in control here, in the White House

Obamacare Tax Increase Could Cost Up to 286K Jobs

A tax increase used to fund Obamacare will reduce private sector employment by 152,000-286,000 by 2023, with about 56 percent of the losses being sustained by small businesses, according to a study by the National Federation of Independent Business.

The NFIB, the nation’s major small business trade group, esimates the new “Health Insurance Tax” will raise the cost of employer-sponsored insurance by 2-3 percent, imposing a cost of nearly $5,000 per family by 2020. While the tax is nominally a “fee” on health insurers, the insurance companies are bound to pass much of the cost on to consumers – meaning businesses and individuals.

But who cares, really. Small business, you gotta pay. Because . . .

Of course, those who don’t lost their jobs will face premium increases.

  1. ………….because this will lead to a single-payer system. The plan all along. There will be no more company paid insurance. Many people have taken jobs to get good insurance protection for themselves and their families.

    • People have uprooted their family moved OUT of their home area for that insurance protection.
      Many people for years took jobs for that protection.
      This follow your dream bull is another point.
      People for years… joined the military partly for that coverage.
      They want to shove us all into one LONG, LONG, LONG line.
      The people who voted for this O Garbage are not going to be a part of this. They make enough money to pay $$$$$$ to stay with their doctors.

    • Thanks for the site.
      That reminds of another situation that does not get discussed.
      Many people who took jobs decades ago, for the insurance and the retirement. I have known people that were layed off JUST before their FULL retirement date came about.
      These people would have taken other jobs YEARS ago, if they knew their Company was going to do that.

  2. The carnage/collateral damage from a despot’s illegitimate theft of our American h/c system. is incalculable. One size fits all for 320M ppl. Throw the baby out with the bath water. Eat your peas and take your medicine (pain pill). RIP, Amerika!

    • Wanted to chime in here Girly and give you a big hug for the grand attempt at trying to behave like an American. Short of a quarantine and yellow tape wrapped around the Left (rhymes with theft) we’re in for a long haul. Even in a post 2016 America, the damage will be felt and the idiots will still blame it on Bush, climate hot/cold/medium and the Koch Brothers. These bastards have off-spring waiting in the wings.

      • Thanks so much, Sadie. Borrowing a line from Annie Get Your Gun…’Just’ doin’ what comes natur’lly’. (Wish I knew how to type your famous musical notes, lol)

        Unfortunately, the offspring of those ‘bastards’ you refer to will be flying to the moon on gossamer wings. Sadly, it’s ‘just one of those things’. (apologies to Cole Porter)

  3. When/where will you first reveal Obama’s Friday (May 9) schedule? Do you only publish each day’s schedule on the morning of that day — or are you aware of it ahead of time?

  4. OT. Here’s some good news — New conservative news site coming online. Heritage Foundation. What with the” Net Neutrality” and the FEC wanting to regulate the media (see second link), the overwhelming liberal bias in the MSM, and don’t forget the hardcore Obama propagandists, the need for good conservative media is critical. And this will be out Heritage — so not muck.

  5. One of my Gang-Of-Usual-Suspects Forwarded this to me today. Thought it was pretty much on the mark!

    Here is the 2700 page Obama Care condensed to 4 sentences…

    1. In order to insure the uninsured, we first have to un-insure the insured.

    2. Next, we require the newly un-insured to be re-insured

    3. To re-insure the newly un-insured, they are required to pay extra charges to be re-insured.

    4. The extra charges are required so that the original insured, who became un-insured, and then became re-insured, can pay enough extra so that the original un-insured can be insured, free of charge to them.

    (This is called “redistribution of wealth” … or, by its more common name, SOCIALISM.)

    • If it was so sad (how future) that would be funny.
      The lines you just typed are the kind of things I would like stated in the Carney Circus.
      We would need at least FIVE reporters to pick up with the next line, as the one before is CUT OFF, IGNORED, GIVEN A HALF &%* REPLY.
