COMIN’ AND GOIN’

February 3, 2015

Congratulations and thank you to all the (primarily) young and all the ignorant people who voted for Obama due to the promise of free universal health care. Ya done bin had agin by yur own pre-programmed guilt and lack o’ inteligents!

It’s becoming more and more apparent that the Affordable Care Act is anything but affordable and it does little to provide care. In fact, due to the act, it is now very difficult for many people to get any health care. Some of those who believe they are insured are still finding that they are not…in spite of having paid premiums for 9-10 months now. Others claim that they cannot find a doctor that will treat them under the plan within 75 to 100 miles of their home. Yet others, say that they avoid going to the doctor because they cannot afford the copay required to meet their annual deductible after paying hundreds of dollars per month in premiums.

Just to round things out, it’s tax season and time to man up (or woman up) to the IRS. The same IRS that unreasonably and illegally wasted their budget and manpower harassing citizens complying with the laws, needs your dollars to continue doing their dastardly deeds. And, they intend to collect it.

If you accepted a premium tax credit to help pay for your health insurance, you may have been over credited. Even if healthcare.gov figured the credit – you owe the difference by April 15. Perhaps you were unemployed or underemployed and that status changed for the positive, you may owe the IRS. Maybe, because you didn’t pay a tax attorney hundreds or thousands of dollars to help you figure out the plan and premium you needed to keep you out of trouble, you chose the wrong one. You may now owe the IRS.

If, because you’re young and healthy, you opted not to participate in an “acceptable” health care plan, you could owe up to 1% of your total household income. Perhaps you didn’t work, but your wife or husband did. Let’s say you have one child and that, after taxes, the family income was in excess of $50,000. Ya gotta pony up. Forget about rent, food and mundane stuff like that. Your first obligation is now to the IRS. You voted for it, now it’s got you.

It is, and always was, about the government taking from those who have some.  The government needs it to cover waste and ineptness. Even the very poor might be caught in this web of lies and deceit. Some of you received exemptions that were not to be or you didn’t use Medicaid when it was available to you. Or, there isn’t a doctor who accepts Medicaid payment available in your state or nearby area. Your Welfare, unemployment, or SNAP may be reduced until the overage is reclaimed.

At any rate, it’s now time to hire a good CPA to figure your taxes. It could save you from the fines and interest charged by the IRS for non-compliance. It could keep you out of handcuffs and a FEMA camp. Thanks to the ACA, the services of tax attorneys and CPAs are now affordable. NOT!

The good news for today is that the hundreds of thousands of “newcomers” invading our country over the past couple of years are covered.  And, as an extra added bonus, they don’t have to file tax returns!

LIBERALS AND TAXES

April 14, 2011

Walter Williams offered an excellent piece on his blog yesterday morning.  Read it here:  http://jewishworldreview.com/cols/williamns041311.php3 Referencing Bill Whittle’s statistics on his RealClearPolitics video “Eat the Rich” from a couple of weeks ago, it deals with the fact that no matter how much the elite steal from the rich, they will not be able to satisfy their hunger for spending.

No matter how much they’d like to, the government just can’t keep up with those wanting to avoid taxes.  Just ask “Share the Wealth” John Kerry who managed to pocket $507,500 by simply registering his new seven million dollar dinghy in Rhode Island rather than sharing the revenue with his own cash-strapped home state of Massachusetts.  The move will also save him approximately $70,000 annually in excise taxes.  A smart move when you can afford to have a yacht built with your over-flow cash and expect the less-than-rich to pick up the tab for your constituents’ entitlements.

Wouldn’t it be nice to overspend your income then go next door to your neighbor and say, “Hey listen Al, I need access to your bank account, I just can’t live within my means”?  That’s what the federal government is doing.  They are spending what they want with no thought of paying for their spending by any means other than tapping the accounts of others who have little say on the spending.

If a family runs out of money, they don’t generally continue to spend at an ever increasing rate, borrowing from extended family or friends or neighbors.  That is unless you’re a close relative of Joe “You’re telling me we have to go spend money to keep from going bankrupt?  The answer is yes, that’s what I’m telling you”, Biden.

In order to maintain, most families would cut back; ask the kids to share some of the responsibility and perhaps empty the dishwasher, vacuum the carpets, wash the windows, mow the lawn and perhaps even wash the family vehicle.  Yes, it would mean that the gardener and house cleaner would have to seek their livelihood elsewhere. In a matter of ‘some survive or all fail’, the family should prevail.  It might also help the kids alter their valuation of such assets.  They just might appreciate and gain respect for those perceived to be of lesser stature and the services they provide.

Talk again looms about a government shutdown.  With such talks, there is always mention of furloughing all non-essential personnel in order to relax the strains on the budget.  Why are there still non-essential personnel to furlough?  Shouldn’t the government function like a productive and efficient private company or the family cited above?  Are we going to continue paying the taxes that liberals like Sen. Kerry refuse to pay.

Tomorrow is April 15.  It may be the last chance for most of us to afford the taxes our representatives want to extract from our accounts.  Next year taxes, like your energy costs, could skyrocket.

Smile and remember that the only reason life costs more now is that you make over $250,000 per year.  Congratulations!
