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Discussions are still in flux, however, and ObamaCare taxes could be repealed right away.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Obamacare needs to be completely repealed including the taxes.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Obozo Care needs to be repealed all of it every single word.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

Horrible: Democrats Set The Constitution On Fire With Fraudulent Impeachment

House Democrats unveiled two articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump on Tuesday morning after an investigation that violated fundamental provisions of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights.

The investigation of the president began with the complaint of a so-called “whistleblower” who turned out to be a rogue Central Intelligence Agency employee, protected by a lawyer who had called for a “coup” against Trump in early 2017.

Democrats first demanded that the “whistleblower” be allowed to testify. But after House Intelligence Committee chair Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) was found to have lied about his committee’s contact with the “whistleblower,” and after details of the “whistleblower’s” bias began to leak, Democrats reversed course. In violation of the President Trump’s Sixth Amendment right to confront his accuser, Democrats refused to allow the “whistleblower” to testify. They argue the president’s procedural rights, even if they existed, would not apply until he was tried in the Senate — but they also invented a fraudulent “right to anonymity” that, they hope, might conceal the whistleblower even then.

Schiff began the “impeachment inquiry” in secret, behind the closed doors of the Sensitive Compartmentalized Information Facility (SCIF) in the basement of the U.S. Capitol, even though none of the testimony was deemed classified. Few members of Congress were allowed access. Schiff allowed selective bits of testimony to leak to friendly media, while withholding transcripts of testimony.

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), having allowed the secret process to unfold, legitimized it with a party-line vote authorizing the inquiry. The House resolution denied President Trump the procedural rights enjoyed by Presidents Richard Nixon and Bill Clinton, and denied the minority party the traditional right to object to witnesses called by the majority.

Rather than the House Judiciary Committee, which traditionally handles impeachment, Pelosi also deputized the House Intelligence Committee to conduct fact-finding; the Judiciary Committee was turned into a rubber stamp. Schiff held a few public hearings, but often failed to release transcripts containing exculpatory evidence until after they had passed.

In the course of the Intelligence Committee’s investigation, Schiff quietly spied on the telephone records of his Republican counterpart, Ranking Member Devin Nunes (R-CA). He also snooped on the phone records of a journalist, John Solomon; and on the phone records of former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani, acting as President Trump’s personal lawyer.

Schiff’s eavesdropping violated both the First Amendment right to press freedom and the Sixth Amendment right to counsel. Yet he proceeded undeterred by constitutional rights, publishing the phone logs in his committee’s report without warning, confirmation, or explanation, alleging that Nunes and the others were part of a conspiracy to assist the president’s allegedly impeachable conduct. When Republicans on the Judiciary Committee asked the Intelligence Committee’s majority counsel, Daniel Goldman, to explain the phone logs, he refused to answer,

Ironically, Schiff had done exactly what Democrats accuse Trump of doing: abused his power to dig up dirt on political opponents, then obstructed a congressional investigation into his party’s and his committee’s misconduct.

Democrats’ articles of impeachment include one for the dubious charge of “abuse of power,” which is not mentioned in the Constitution; and one for “obstruction of Congress,” which in this case is an abuse of power in itself.

Alexander Hamilton, writing about impeachment in Federalist 65, warned that “there will always be the greatest danger that the decision will be regulated more by the comparative strength of parties, than by the real demonstrations of innocence or guilt.” Democrats have fulfilled Hamilton’s worst fears.

The Trump impeachment will soon replace the 1868 impeachment of President Andrew Johnson — which the House Judiciary Committee staff actually cited as a positive precedent — as the worst in American history.

In service of their “coup,” Democrats have trampled the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. The Republic has never been in greater danger.
