New Year Brings Dawn of Obamacare Tax Increases

New Year Brings Dawn of Obamacare Tax Increases: By 2015, the employer mandate kicks in. Originally, this mandate was scheduled to take effect in 2014, but the administration delayed it prior the the shoddy implementation of the healthcare law in late 2013. The mandate will order employers with 50 or more full-time employees (or those working 30 hours per week) to offer government-approved health insurance or pay a penalty. "The penalty varies—either $2,000 per employee after the first 30 workers, or $3,000 per employee receiving subsidized coverage in the exchange, whichever is less," Heritage says.

Muslims raped over 300 Swedish children and 700 women in 7 months of 2013 The Muslim Issue

Muslims raped over 300 Swedish children and 700 women in 7 months of 2013 The Muslim Issue
Cecilia Malmström, the unkept ragged European Commissioner for Home Affairs, do not care about the rapidly rising rape crimes against children in her own country. Malmström grant Muslim immigrants entry into Europe. She has promised that more Muslim terrorists and extreme misogynists cloaked as asylum seekers, must be admitted into Europe so that more crime, rape and murder can terrorise her already saturated country. Malmström is eager to let women and children be raped and abused in Sweden so she can appear politically correct and pretend to be a humanitarian.
.
In the first seven months of 2013, over 1,000 Swedish women reported being raped by Muslim immigrants in the capital city of Stockholm. Over 300 of those were under the age of 15. The number of rapes is up 16% so far this year compared to 2012 numbers. A large proportion of the increase include rape of young [pre-teen] girls. [Bing translated]
The official radio report quoted from BRÅ (The Swedish National Council for Crime Prevention) refuses to mention the M-word in the socialist-suffocated Sweden, a country held hostage by the extreme left. But when you contact senior police and government sources they confirm (anonymous in fear of losing their jobs) that these numbers represent Muslims. And a majority of these rape cases are caused by Malmström’s new asylum seekers.

Young Invincibles Face a Rude Awakening on Obamacare

Young Invincibles Face a Rude Awakening on Obamacare: Young invincibles aren't going to decide whether or not to participate in this based on cheesy marketing ploys. Eventually, it's going to come down to the same kind of cost/benefit analysis people use for everything else. That means a lot of the young and healthy are going to sit this out, at least until the cost of refusing goes up substantially next year. Sooner or later the delusion that Obamacare is "free stuff" is going to be rudely replaced with a monthly bill.

Alabama Mom's ObamaCare Horror Story Gives America a Glimpse of Government-Run Healthcare | Independent Journal Review

Alabama Mom's ObamaCare Horror Story Gives America a Glimpse of Government-Run Healthcare | Independent Journal Review: What is the most sickening thing to me is that we have been forced into the Health Insurance Marketplace’s Exchange. We wanted to continue our coverage through BSBC and pay as we always had been. But, we found out that option would not be affordable under the new Act, which is how we were forced into the Exchange. Furthermore, not only were we forced into the Exchange, but then forced again to submit an application to ALL Kids for our children. I just don’t understand how we go from being hard working middle class family who provides everything for our family to where we are today. I feel like everything that my husband and I have worked hard for is for nothing. I pray each night that we will get something resolved with our “glitch” in the system so our children will have health insurance coverage in January and by the time I have to purchase my son’s $400 a month ADHD medicine.

Alabama Mom's ObamaCare Horror Story Gives America a Glimpse of Government-Run Healthcare | Independent Journal Review

Alabama Mom's ObamaCare Horror Story Gives America a Glimpse of Government-Run Healthcare | Independent Journal Review:

On October, 1, 2013 we received our letters like other Alabamians about our new premiums and plans for 2014 from Blue Cross Blue Shield (BCBS) of Alabama. When I opened our letter to say I had sticker shock was an understatement. Our premiums for the Blue Saver Silver would now be $753.26. This included the ACA tax but did not include the additional $75.00 we would need to pay in order to keep dental for me and my husband. So we would need to pay total $828.26 to keep health and dental insurance for the four of us. This payment is roughly $64.00 less than what we pay for our mortgage each month. I was outraged that anyone thought we could afford this. Sure we have some savings, but with that price tag we would whittle it down to almost nothing very quickly. I consider savings as a rainy day fund, a start to saving for the kid’s college, our retirement, etc. I never dreamed in a million years we would need to use it to pay our insurance premiums each month – how in the world could this help the economy too?

Whilst their release is obviously good news for everyone concerned, it is more of a public relations stunt by Vladimir ‘Bonaparte’ Putin, ahead of the Winter Olympics in early 2014 - than it is clemency, or a relaxing of Putin’s regime.

A Large New Tax on Small Business - WSJ.com

A Large New Tax on Small Business - WSJ.com: ObamaCare includes so many taxes that it's hard to keep track, but one of the worst takes effect on Jan. 1. This beaut is a levy on health insurance premiums that targets the small business and individual markets.

At $8 billion in 2014 and $101 billion over the next decade, the insurance tax is larger than ObamaCare's taxes on medical devices and prescription drugs combined. The Internal Revenue Service classifies the tax as a "fee" but it functions like an excise tax on premiums. The IRS collects an annual flat amount specified by the Affordable Care Act to be allocated among the insurers according to market share.

Collective unconscious - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Collective unconscious - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Collective unconscious is a term of analytical psychology, coined by Carl Jung. It is proposed to be a part of the unconscious mind, expressed in humanity and all life forms with nervous systems, and describes how the structure of the psyche autonomously organizes experience. Jung distinguished the collective unconscious from the personal unconscious, in that the personal unconscious is a personal reservoir of experience unique to each individual, while the collective unconscious collects and organizes those personal experiences in a similar way with each member of a particular species.

Public outcry revives tuition assistance for troops - News - Stripes

Public outcry revives tuition assistance for troops - News - Stripes: Each service runs its own program, but generally tuition assistance provides eligible servicemembers up to $4,500 per fiscal year, and a maximum of $250 per semester credit hour to cover tuition and allowable fees for servicemembers pursuing associate’s bachelor’s or master’s degrees. Last year, more than 286,000 servicemembers took advantage of the programs, according to the Defense Department.

The abrupt end to tuition assistance sparked outrage and anxiety throughout the military community as those enrolled in education programs wondered how they would pay for remaining classes. Others worried their promotion potential could be affected with the military’s emphasis on education as a key factor for advancement. A petition on the ‘We the People’ section of WhiteHouse.gov accumulated more than 100,000 signatures within 10 days — warranting a response from the White House.

Fighting to honor the promises made to the men and women who put their lives on the line for us is hardly a losing issue.

The bill had given him, he said, 95 percent of what he wanted. It had been only three and a half months since September 9, when the president had appeared before a joint session of Congress and a national TV audience to deliver an address that emphasized two things:

First, if you are among the hundreds of millions of Americans who already have health insurance through your job, or Medicare, or Medicaid, or the VA, nothing in this plan will require you or your employer to change the coverage or the doctor you have. (Applause.) Let me repeat this: Nothing in our plan requires you to change what you have.
