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Discussions are still in flux, however, and ObamaCare taxes could be repealed right away.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Obamacare needs to be completely repealed including the taxes.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Obozo Care needs to be repealed all of it every single word.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.

Joe Biden Vows: Give Taxpayer-Funded Obamacare To All Illegal Aliens In U.S.

Former Vice President and 2020 Democrat presidential primary candidate Joe Biden is vowing to give Obamacare, funded by American taxpayers, to all 11 to 22 million illegal aliens living in the United States.

During an interview with Telemundo’s Jose Diaz-Balart, Biden forgot that Obamacare technically bans illegal aliens from enrolling in healthcare plans — although illegal aliens are still able to obtain subsidized and free healthcare at Americans’ expense — and promised that under his plan, all 11 to 22 million illegal aliens would be able to get Obamacare.

The exchange went as follows:

DIAZ-BALART: When I … NBC moderated that first debate with you, I didn’t … I don’t recall a clear answer, under your plan should … would the 11, 12 million undocumented immigrants that live in the United States, that have been here many for generations, would they have access …

BIDEN: Yes.

DIAZ-BALART: — to health insurance.

BIDEN: Yes, they … if they can buy into the system like everybody else.

DIAZ-BALART: Because you know, in [Obamacare] they can’t.

BIDEN: Yeah. Yeah, I know. Well they can, that’s my point. They continue to be able to do that.

DIAN-BALART: They cannot under the ObamaCare.

BIDEN: Well and that’s my point, they will though. They will be able to buy into … [illegal aliens] would be able to buy in, just like anyone else could.

Biden joins Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), and South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg — among other 2020 Democrats — in committing to forcing American taxpayers to pay for healthcare for illegal aliens who arrive in the U.S.

Already, due to loopholes, American taxpayers are spending nearly $20 billion every year to provide illegal aliens with subsidized healthcare, emergency room visits, and other health services.

Under the 2020 Democrats’ plan to provide taxpayer-funded healthcare to all illegal aliens living in the U.S., Americans would be billed potentially $660 billion every decade just to cover the costs. Other research has found that the plan would cost Americans at least $23 billion every year.

As Breitbart News has reported, experts have said that giving taxpayer-funded healthcare to effectively all foreign nationals who can make it to America’s borders would drive “strong incentives for people with serious health problems to enter the country or remain longer than their visas allow in order to get government-funded care.”

Despite 2020 Democrats’ continued push for taxpayer-funded healthcare for illegal aliens, American voters are overwhelmingly opposed to the plan. The latest Wall Street Journal/NBC News survey revealed that the healthcare-for-illegal-aliens plan is the least popular policy position, with opposition from 62 percent of U.S. voters.

Similarly, a CNN poll from July discovered that 63 percent of likely swing voters oppose providing healthcare to illegal aliens, along with nearly 6-in-10 of all likely U.S. voters and 61 percent of moderates. A Rasmussen Reports survey also found that likely voters, by a majority of 55 percent, oppose giving healthcare to even the most low-income illegal aliens.
