Outrageous: IRS gives foreign diplomats taxpayer funded Obamacare

Unknown to most Americans is the added benefit foreign diplomats -- some from nations that criticize, dislike or are uncooperative with the U.S. -- receive from the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) using American taxpayers' money: subsidized healthcare. On Thursday, GOP lawmakers decided "enough is enough" and wrote a scathing letter to the IRS chief.

While Americans struggle to pay their taxes, the IRS gives Obamacare to foreign diplomats.
 

The chairman of the House of Representatives' Committee on Foreign Affairs, Rep. Ed Royce, R-California, along with his colleague Ways and Means Committee Chairman Dave Camp, R-Michigan, reported on Thursday that they wrote to IRS Commissioner John Koskinen after they discovered that foreign diplomats assigned to embassies, consulates, and diplomatic missions in Washington, D.C., and New York City are eligible for subsidized healthcare coverage under the "monstrosity Affordable Care Act (ACA)," commonly known as Obamacare, a law read by few legislators and understood by even fewer.

"It boggles the mind how Americans can barely afford the premiums for their healthcare insurance thanks to Obama and the Democrats and their fiasco ACA program, yet they're forced to subsidize the healthcare for men and women from foreign countries many of whom hate America and Americans," said former police sergeant and hospital security director George Pintos.

The Republicans' official letter asks the IRS chief to provide information on just how many foreign nationals have enrolled in ACA and the total cost of all subsidies given to foreign diplomats.

You mean congress. Nazis Germany liked america more the thieving government

LOL, "a scathing letter" ?? Yeah, that will get this anti-American administration's attention and have them jumping to appease the GOP's demands. Like the GOP didn't already know this was happening. What do they plan to do with the information assuming the IRS even provides it? Hmmmm...

Why not --- illegals, diplomats -- all part of the plan to eliminate the middle class ! 

Look deeper, is it just the diplomats or also their family members, house keepers, limo drivers, etc.?

Letter sent to IRS Commissioner - John Koskinen?  Are you kidding me?

Does anyone remember this sleazy jerks comments when he was being questioned by Trey Gowdy during congressional hearing re: IRS a few months ago?

With all due respect to Rep. Royce and Rep. Camp....why did they even bother to waste time writing Koskinen a letter.....for they will not get an answer.

I am opposed to government handouts on principle. But, this sort of thing galls me. None of our dollars should be going to any body from anywhere else.

Once the so-called affordable health act was signed into law by the president and the supreme court made a decision that is was constitutional as a tax, it was assigned to the IRS and from that point on they write the laws that are followed. These unelected appointed bureaucrats( that the senate has approved}  have the powers of the executive branch, both houses of congress and the courts to write the laws that we follow.

its bad enough when we know that illegal aliens are signing up...it seems that obamacare has more invisible tentacles attached to it than anyone is aware of....when the gop wins the senate..they say they will fix obamacare....this very thing would be a great place to start..the American tax payer is funding the entire world...and getting very little in return..but more and more people and things to fund....by time Obama leaves the oval office he will probably have run up some 25 trillion dollars...that our childrens...children...will still be paying off......don't forget that these foreign diplomats have their families with them...and I bet they fly their aunts, uncles and distant cousins in for their medical care also.

This is an insult on top of the first insult of forcing us to pay for an unchosen product.  What is the proper function of government?  Certainly not to inflict force upon us.  Watch this series of short videos for more details.

They can write all the letters they want, trouble is, no one at The White House opens the mail, or reads the Daily Briefs, or does anything, but plan the demise of our Country. Injunctions are a lot more noticeable, and when these Namby-Pamby Lawmakers figure that out, we will get somewhere.

That's because Obama thinks that we are a rich imperial country, and that we now have to pay for everyone else in this world. How wrong is he, we have to struggle to make a living and there is no free money like foreign think it is. Perhaps, it is he who does not work for living and stays in golf course all the time. I had to work for a living, so that I would be able to retired. I never learned golf because I was working for my family. 

Samantha's Power diplo.,for the United States at the U.N. Is an Irish, Chicago, commie married to Cass Sunstein another Chicago commie lawyer. This duo is hell bent on forcing America into the ATM of the globe. There is so much damage that this administration has done to the American people. This is what happens when the press becomes an arm of the state. There is no truth and no loyalty to the American public.

ALERT ALERT

1 Billion Dollar Net Worth!!! Oberlin College Claims Poverty To Avoid Paying Punitive Damages To Gibson’s Bakery

Although IRS reports show the university is worth around $1 billion, Oberlin College still claimed poverty to avoid paying punitive damages to Gibson’s Bakery.

As Breitbart News reported this week, the far-left Oberlin College lost a defamation case filed by Gibson’s Bakery after a local jury found the university liable for falsely accusing the family bakery of racism.

The jury ordered Oberlin on Friday to pay Gibson’s $11.2 million in compensatory damages for defamation and intentional interference with a business.

Legal Insurrection reported on Thursday that “the jury awarded a total of $33 million in punitive damages, which will probably be reduced by the court to $22 million because of the state law cap at twice compensatory.”

Legal Insurrection has been following the case for two years — since the beginning — and reports that the school’s only defense against a sizable punitive award is to pretend it is poor, despite holding assets that amount to a billion — with a “b” — dollars and despite paying some of its staffers more than a half-million dollars a year:

Oberlin College was so hellbent on getting the message out that their cash liquidity was in such dire straits — as the eight-person jury was figuring out if they wish to add $22.4 million to the school’s legal verdict bill — that they brought out the school’s president, Carmen Twillie Ambar to the stand to tell that part the story.

“We’ve created deficits … and over the next ten years, if this continues, that is unsustainable and we will not exist,” Ambar told the jury. She even indicated the school’s grants — about $60 million a year from the school, and lots of students get those scholarships as only 10% of them pay the full $70,000 a year — were important to preserve as “the accessibility of education” was a key component of the school’s purpose.

However…

The college has more than $1 billion in funds and net assets according to the latest IRS 990 form, an endowment fund that had grown from $440 million to $887 million in the last 20 years, and because of its non-profit status, pays no taxes on any property it owns.

It also had 18 members of their administration making more than $100,00 a year. The president and chief financial officer of the school were both making more than $500,000 a year.

Grifters gonna grift…

The day after Donald Trump won the presidency, this nutball school apparently decided to take out its impotent woke-rage on this poor bakery, which has been part of the Oberlin community for more than a century.

It all started when three Oberlin students (who would later plead guilty in a plea deal) attempted to steal bottles of wine.

The proprietors caught the students and, while attempting to hold them until police arrived, were allegedly roughed up by the shoplifters. But because the students are black and the proprietors white — and with no respect for due process or facts — Oberlin staffers and students decided some vigilantism was in order and did everything in their considerable power to destroy this local bakery forever, to smite it off the map.

Classes were canceled so hundreds of students could protest in front of the small store while enjoying free food and drink, courtesy of the school. School staffers handed out fliers that basically described the family-owned bakery as the local branch of the KKK.

As a result, the bakery had to lay off almost all of its employees and barely avoided bankruptcy.

In the end, the three shoplifters said race had nothing to do with what happened.

For those of you interested in incurring $200,000 in debt before you even enter the workforce, it looks as though you can major in Mob Justice at Oberlin.
