“It’s a tax”

The condescending arrogance of that wh tweet is unbelieveable. It’s mocking Amercia.

Does the Obama administration only hire 12-year-olds?

    That was my first thought. Not since grade school have I observed a preponderance of juvenile behavior. Perhaps it’s a side-effect of narcissistic disorder. If nothing else, I hope the revenue generating scheme known as “Obamacare” will provide treatment for his symptoms.

BTW, I like Boehner’s response. Maybe he can keep it up. Naw, who am I kidding?

Oh! Goodie, I’m going to go play. I just love these hashtag games . . . though I’m sure I can hear the IRS, EPA, and who knows what other executive agency chomping at the bit to “get” me.

This Republican circus has gotten out of control:

Led by Michele Bachmann, tonight Republicans will vote to repeal Obamacare for the 37th time.

We want to reach one million people standing behind Obamacare to show that Bachmann and House Republicans have lost the faith of the American people.

Declare your support for Obamacare before tonight’s repeal vote: Click here to automatically add your name >>

This is all just a petty ideological game and I know you are as tired of it as I am.

Lets show House Republicans that their antics will get them nowhere.

Thanks for your support.

Nancy

The vote gets even more worthless when you consider that a real repeal would actually COST money rather than save it.

Hashtags, gamesoftag – both are exceedingly juvenile. Twitter turns thinking adults, invested in keeping up with the Joneses, into blathering idiots.

I vote for eliminating all tweets from future posts. Some of us have always come here for the considered wisdom and analysis provided by Professor Jacobson. Now we must abide content contained in tweets that is, more often than not, offensive. Worse, the tweets add nothing to discussions of conservative values.

I had an up-close and personal experience with Obamacare this month that caused me to utter only ONE word!

As a newly minuted card-carrying Medicarian, I decided to pay for extra coverage, part D, though Aetna. When my first Medicare bill came, there was a separate line item for Part D, IRMAA. Not sure what that was, I called Medicare and asked. I knew I was doomed when the agent laughed. Here’s what he told me.

Part D-IRMAA stands for the Income Related Monthly Adjustment Amount for Part D and this is mandated by the Affordable Care Act to help fund the Medicare Part D Trust Fund. The Part D-IRMAA is required to be paid by those who have Part D coverage and higher income.

In response to the WH’s It’s. The. Law I’ll borrow one from the NFL:

Not. For. Long.

(At the beginning of preseason camp, a veteran pro football player asks a rookie if he knows what NFL stands for. The rookie says, ‘no, what?’. The veteran says Not For Long, in reference to how tough it is to make an NFL roster.)

Arrogance of power –> RT @whitehouse: It’s. The. Law. #ObamaCareInThreeWords, twitter.com/whitehouse/sta…

What a bloody hypocrite is Boehner! What has he done to repeal Obamacare? What has Eric Cantor, the other quack, done?

Juba Doobai! | May 16, 2013 at 7:56 pm

Government As Slavemaster.

I hope enough people now see just what Obamacare was engineered to do. If the Obama gang foresaw that the IRS scandal might break soon after the election, they probably had a ‘plan B’ in place. Hence the 1.6 billion rounds of 9mm ammunition.

If anyone seeing Eric Holder’s behavior in Congress the other day refuses to recognize the coming tyranny by our government – enabled by Obamacare — they are blind.

We are close to civil war. And that is the truth.

That signature looks like something one would do with one’s feet .

Not that here is anything wrong with that.

I’m told I didn’t play the game right. Okay. So:

Repeal. This. Obamanation.

My.Doctor.Quit.

You must die!

Whiny. Petulant. Arrogant.

Laws can change.

I found the architect of the policy. Sarah Hall Ingram made a 2009 speech about just this topic where she outlines her vision of “good governance” on how citizens should act and how the IRS is responsible in finding out if those citizens qualify.

The PDF didn’t transfer perfectly to my blog, so here is both.

This is the person and she is in charge of Obamacare/IRS unit. Not by accident either.

http://truthandcommonsense.com/2013/05/16/who-is-she-the-head-of-the-irs-during-the-scandal-is-in-charge-of-obamacare/

http://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-tege/ingram__gtown__governance_062309.pdf

here is a key part:

IRS Promotion of Good Governance

Somewhat controversially – at least to some – we have advanced the notion that there is a link between good governance and tax compliance. This concept
seems intuitively true to many people. I certainly believe it; it does not seem like a controversial statement to me. But so me have challenged this association of good governance and good compliance – not by pointing out cases in which well governed organizations nonetheless seriously
violated the Code and put their tax-exempt status at risk – but simply by saying the point has not been proved.
These critics often note that effective governance arises from intangibles – the dedication and diligence of responsible officers and board members – rather than
from the adoption of numerous rules and procedures. These, in their view, can pile up on top of each other to such an extent that they prevent good governance
rather than promote it . Knowing who is right in this discussion is not easy. We have set out to collect some information on the point. We are going to start
asking agents, at the end of each examination, to fill out a check sheet about certain of the examined organization’
s governance practices and internal controls. The check sheet is intended to identify instances of noncompliance
found during the exam, and also to gather information about whether the organization had, and used, any internal controls. For each instance of noncompliance found
– excessive compensation, political intervention, inurement, private benefit, material diversi
on of assets – the agent should ask, who made the decision to do it or to allow it? Was there a policy in place concerning the transition or activity, for example, and if so, was it followed? Let me be clear – we will be gathering objective data, not subjective views. And we will do this over time. As we collect enough information to be interesting, we’ll share it with the community, and
everyone can have a go at it.
