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Discussions are still in flux, however, and ObamaCare taxes could be repealed right away.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.

I am not worried. Trump will crush these rinos and all who stand in his way. That's what he did with his opponents when he ran for president as well. Once Trump gets in, the opposition (rinos and democraps) will cave in very quickly. Trump will fight the establishment, which he already proved with the picks for his cabinet. Trump will make America great again and nobody will stop him.

The politicians that are not willing to repeal Obamacare do not have to live under Obamacare! They have their  golden parachute health care program for life paid for by the tax payers.

How much have these GOP "leaders" taken in bribes?

Not that i completely agree with what might be the reason for the idea of delaying completely striking down the law doing away with Obamacare for good, yet it maybe the GOP wishes a few million more people become more aware of just how bad Obamacare is. The GOP might change a few things with the law, an so doing so more people like democrats suffer under Obamacare an learn first hand just how bad Obamacare really is before completely dismantling the bad law.

Make the democrat voters, the supporters of the Left suffer under Obamacare like the rest of the country? They should do something like that to wake the creeps up to what the Left has been doing to the rest of the country not that they care about what others go through, they mostly only care about themselves.

The House Speaker AND the Majority Leader in the Senate BOTH have 'skin in the game' of PPACA

The LAW that was signed by Obama  - ruled on in SCOTUS IS Patent Protection Affordable Care Act of 2010

ALL others under the name of ACA Affordable Care Act is ILLEGAL and there for Un-Constitutional

With over 30,000 pages of regulations from HHS this monstrosity needs to be REPEALED

Both the House & the Senate seem to be takimg a 'wait and see' approach

Waiting for President Trump to make his recommendations on ObozoCare

of course republikrats are going to continue the taxes, they want the Obama plan to destroy the nation to succeed so their new world order plans can go forward.  they are traitors!!!!!  I hope and pray that Trump will follow through on his campaign promises, using executive orders if necessary to abolish everything fuhrer Obama has done to the detriment of We the People!!!!!

Bob,

i don't think its that simple. Look at the gains the GOP has had since Obama has been president. They are playing the game rather well and have done something remarkable the past 8 year. Now, i totally agree it hasn't been much of a benefit for the middle class and the rest of us conservative by no means, we were harmed considerably, and yet they now have total control. You have to admit the people were awaken that were asleep having Obama run wild the past few years? The GOP (we too) are to blame for it. They have wiped the floor with the democrats in the past few years, big time. The best they have realized since the 1920's.

President Trump will come through with the promises he made during the campaign, and yet, the GOP are looking for total defeat of the their (ours too) arch enemy, the Left and the nasty filthy democrat party. That i think is what's going on. It surely pissed me off that Obama was given free rein for the past 8 years, yet they gave (GOP) them the rope to hang themselves and they certainly did just that. We are on the road to greatness once again. Merry Christmas and the best in the coming new year.

To Congress:  Lead; follow; or get the H*ll out of the way.  But stop trying to block our President Elect's policies that were mandated from the good people of this country!!!

Trump will crush these renegade members of Congress, all of the opposition, the media and anyone who stands in his way just like he crushed all opponents to get to the White House. Trump cannot and will not tolerate any dissent when he will drain the swamp, fight the establishment, lock her up and make America great again. We the people voted for all that in a landslide victory for Trump.

In other words...who ever wrote this article has no clue...lots of "maybes'

Proof yet again that many of the gop are traitors who care NOTHING about We the People, but only care about what THEY want.  Time to put them out to pasture permanently!

New York's Green Light Law - Allows Illegal Aliens To Get Driver’s Licenses

New York passed a law to allow illegal immigrants to obtain driver’s licenses earlier this year but it was held up by challenges.

Now it is set to take effect this week.

In typical leftist fashion, supporters claim this is going to somehow make New York’s roads safer for everyone.

Could it really be about voting?

FOX News reports:

Illegal immigrants to be able to get driver’s licenses in NY after legal challenge fails.

Illegal immigrants in New York will able to obtain driver’s licenses starting next week after a last-minute legal challenge was dismissed — making it the 13th state to allow the practice, but one that critics say is unconstitutional.

The Green Light Law, signed by Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo earlier this year, allows anyone to apply for a driver’s license regardless of immigration status and does not require a Social Security number.

Illegal immigrants can use a combination of documents that include a valid passport from a foreign country and a valid foreign driver’s license, as long as it has been expired for less than two years.

“After waiting 18 years to have their right to drive restored, thanks to our legislature, New York can now officially join 12 other states in making driver’s licenses legally available to all residents,” New York Immigration Coalition Executive Director Steve Choi said in a statement this week, arguing that it will make roads safer and the economy stronger.

County clerks in New York have concerns and are sounding an alarm.

CBS News in Albany reports:

County clerks concerned by loopholes in Green Light law.

Undocumented immigrants now have the green light to get a driver’s license in New York…but several county clerks in the Capital Region are concerned.

Saratoga County Clerk Craig Hayner said, “We found that everything we were concerned about as far as fraud and all sorts of other things are in that bill, in that regulation and we’re very concerned.”

Hayner tells CBS6’s Lynsey Smith there are a few loopholes in the Green Light Law.

Loopholes, such as a person coming in to get their license and not having to provide their social security number.

“That could lead to criminals coming from other states, coming in and use that as a way to defraud by just simply saying they don’t have a social security number…and that’s a very dangerous loophole,” replied Hayner.

Does anyone believe this is going to make New York safer or that this is really about driving?

Delusional Democrats
