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Discussions are still in flux, however, and ObamaCare taxes could be repealed right away.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Obamacare needs to be completely repealed including the taxes.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Obozo Care needs to be repealed all of it every single word.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

Judicial Watch->  Emails Show Dossier-Connected Obama State Dept Officials Set ‘Face-To-Face’ Meeting On ‘Russian Matter’ Shortly Before 2016 Election

Judicial Watch and the Daily Caller News Foundation on Thursday released 84 pages of documents showing Obama’s State Department was central to pushing the ‘Trump-Russia’ hoax shortly before the 2016 election.

The email exchange between then-Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland and Special Coordinator for Libya Jonathan Winer, a very close associate to Christopher Steele, show them discussing a ‘face-to-face’ meeting in New York on a ‘Russian matter’ in September of 2016.

Via Judicial Watch:

Judicial Watch and The Daily Caller News Foundation today released 84 pages of documents, including a September 2016 email exchange between then-Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland and Special Coordinator for Libya Jonathan Winer, a close associate of dossier author Christopher Steele, discussing a “face-to-face” meeting on a “Russian matter.”

(In June 2016 Nuland permitted a meeting between Steele and the FBI’s legal attaché in Rome. Nuland told CBS News that the State Department knew about the Steele dossier by July 2016.)

According to an op-ed Winer wrote for The Washington Post in 2018, also in September 2016, “Steele and I met in Washington and discussed the information now known as the “dossier… I prepared a two-page summary and shared it with Nuland, who indicated that, like me, she felt that the secretary of state needed to be made aware of this material.”

A September 17, 2016, email exchange between Nuland and Winer – that was classified in the interest of national defense or foreign policy – discusses the political situation in Libya, but also brings up a “Russian matter:”

Good. I’ll reach out when im there Sunday. [Redacted]

If Victoria Nuland’s name sounds familiar it’s because she has been on Judicial Watch’s radar for a long time and in many of TGP’s previous reports.

In December 2018, Judicial Watch released documents revealing that Victoria Nuland was involved in the Obama State Department’s urgent gathering of classified Russia investigation information and disseminating it to members of Congress within hours of Donald Trump taking office.

In a related lawsuit, Judicial Watch is suing the State Department communications between Ambassador Nuland and employees of Fusion GPS, as well as top ranking Department of Justice, FBI, and State Department officials.

“The Obama State Department was central to the effort to target President Trump with the Russia smear,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “These new emails further show that senior Obama State Department advanced the Russiagate hoax just before the 2016 presidential election.”
