GOP considers holding off on repealing ObamaCare taxes

Image result for cut taxes nowCongressional Republicans are considering holding off on repealing some of ObamaCare's taxes, according to lobbyists familiar with the discussions. 
 
GOP lawmakers on the House Ways and Means Committee discussed the possibility of keeping some of the taxes in place during a retreat last week at the Library of Congress, the sources say.
 
Even if some of the taxes are not removed as part of the initial repeal bill, it does not necessarily mean they will remain indefinitely. Some ObamaCare taxes could be dealt with as part of a larger tax reform bill later in the year. 
 
Still, there is at least a possibility that some taxes could remain in place to provide revenue for a replacement healthcare measure.
 
Discussions are still in flux, however, and ObamaCare taxes could be repealed right away. Including the law’s taxes in a repeal bill could be an easier political move for Republicans, given the importance many have placed on repealing as much of the law as possible.

if it wasn't so predictable it'd be infuriating. the mandate from the electorate is repeal it in it's entirety. Not 'in part', or 'replace', just repeal it dammit. what's so hard to understand about that??  only politicians can get away with pretending to be so dense.

Once they get their greedy hands on taxpayer money, they are always reluctant to let go. 

Obamacare needs to be completely repealed including the taxes. And it doesn't need to be replaced with another Obamacare.

the rhinos need to be routed out

Hell no, the rings are coming out of the wood work before Trump takes office.

Obozo Care needs to be repealed all of it every single word.

what do they not get about us being tired of this bullsh**. Get rid of those penalties for not having insurance also. Since when are Americans being forced to buy a product many do not want. Do not mess around with us. 2 years is not that far away.

the republikrats don't care because our only option is to vote for their demonkrat party allies.  What we need is to rid ourselves of both political parties, they are the same, two wings of the same buzzard, the new world order socialist party!!!!!

THese idiots don't get it.   Get rid of OBUMO Taxes on healthcare.   Whether it is taxing the employer for employing over 50.   Whether if is taxing if the worker works more than 28 hours a week.   Please explain why our healthcare could be wiped out over night when the Dems illegally pushed Obumocare thru.... Open up healthcare for people to get their own.  Insurance across state lines(which is all the Obumocare bill should have been.)     How much $$$$$$$$$ do these politicians get in DC from lobbiest,  donors.   Think of the country not your pocketbook.   Politicians palms are always open.  

The prices of insurance will come down if there is competition.     If people can decide what they need.  Not what some idiot in DC thinks.... that does not live in the real world.  

They met a tax they couldn't like and raise it. We the middle class are done getting robbed and screwed over by Washington.

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.
