Tax Preparers Getting Tax Dollars to Sign You Up for Obamacare?

It is tax season and Americans everywhere are taking their receipts and forms to their favorite tax preparer to find out what that final tally will be. But are our tax preparers getting a cash bonus from the taxpayers to sign customers up for Obamacare while they are filling out our tax forms? It seems so.

This new waste of tax money–possibly illegal, definitely unethical–came to light when Will Upton made to write a piece on Obama’s attack on those that want to defund Arkansas’ “private option.” In Arkansas, legislators made a move to mitigate the disaster that is Obamacare (ACA) by passing a law colloquially known as the private option.

As Upton explains it, the private option is “essentially an expansion of Medicaid eligibility, under the auspices of Obamacare, to any Arkansan under 65 years old who is at or below 138 percent of the federal poverty level.”

As the funding for this state-level Obamacare fix is up for approval, Obama and his cohorts are blanketing the state with attacks on defunders of the private option. In particular is a study floated by tax preparing company Jackson-Hewitt claiming that defunding the private option is nothing but a tax hike on the business sector.

Thought Police: Employers Will Be Forced to Inform Obama Why They’re Firing Someone

Now businesses will have to go hat in hand to Obama to explain themselves about why they are firing any particular employee. This is just another of Obama’s steps toward the fascist-styled control by Washington bureaucrats over the entirety of the business sector.

As Fox News reported it: “Obama officials made clear in a press briefing that firms would not be allowed to lay off workers to get into the preferred class of those businesses with 50 to 99 employees. How will the feds know what employers were thinking when hiring and firing? Simple. Firms will be required to certify to the IRS – under penalty of perjury – that ObamaCare was not a motivating factor in their staffing decisions. To avoid ObamaCare costs you must swear that you are not trying to avoid ObamaCare costs. You can duck the law, but only if you promise not to say so.”

Here is what friend and candidate for Congress Dan Bongino said of all this…

Era of Obama: Number of Americans Renouncing Citizenship Soars

During the age of Obama, Americans have renounced their citizenship at record numbers. In fact in four out of Obama’s five years in the White House, expatriation numbers set record highs.

Just as an example, during all eight years of George W. Bush’s terms in office, 3,865 Americans renounced their citizenship and moved overseas. But during Obama’s first five years fully 7,988 Americans quit being Americans and in 2013 expatriation soared to 2,999, a record that smashed the previous high of 1,781 set in Obama’s third year in office.

Graphic courtesy of the International Tax Blog:

Much of this is due to the outrageous tax situation that the US forces on Americans that live abroad. Ridiculously, the US is the only nation in the world that forces citizens that live permanently abroad to pay taxes on their income to the US even if derived from overseas sources.

This situation has gotten worse recently with the IRS attempting to force forcing countries to report US citizens living abroad to US authorities.

[UPDATE] Coke Balkanizes USA With Super Bowl Ad

With UPDATE at bottom

The left was ecstatic over Coca-Cola’s decision to air a commercial during the Super Bowl that featured as its sound track the song America The Beautiful. Oh, they weren’t ecstatic because of the song. They were ecstatic that Coke decided to have the song sung in a myriad of foreign languages. They weren’t excited over an American song they were happy that Coke decided to snub English and American traditions, of course.

Naturally, the retort against those that were upset that Coke produced the song in a string of foreign tongues is that they are “racists” and “haters” who hate the fact that there are people other than White, English-speakers in the US.

Just as naturally, this is simply not why people were upset at Coke.

Coke posted a press release claiming that its commercial was “a salute to America” and that “the ad features real people enjoying each other and a Coke.”

Further explaining the commercial in the press release, Katie Bayne, President, North America Brands, Coca-Cola North America, said, “For 127 years, Coca-Cola has been proud to be a part of bringing friends and families together while memories are made. With ‘It’s Beautiful,’ we are simply showing that America is beautiful, and Coke is for everyone.”

Several Illinois Republican Congressmen released statements after President Obama’s State of the Union speech last night. Congressmen Roskam, Hultgren, and Kinzinger reacted to the speech, and so did the President of the Illinois chapter of Americans for Prosperity.

First of all, Obama straight out lied several times in his speech last night. His biggest lie was the claim that he once again trotted out saying women only make 77 cents to a man’s dollar in the job market. This is simply a lie, one the left trots out repeatedly despite it being wholly false.

Obama also misled when he touted how his constantly failing Obamacare law has signed up. His claimsRead more


Illinois Democrats Are Planning to Raise Income Taxes on the Middle Class

Illinois Democrats want to put a measure on the next ballot to get Illinoisans to agree to change the state constitution to allow a progressive income tax to be instituted. But Democrats are lying to the faces of every citizen when they say that this would only raise taxes on “the rich.” The fact is a progressive rate would immediately raise taxes on every single citizen not to mention open the door for a constant jiggering and re-jiggering of the rates–a jiggering that would only and always go upward.


Illinois State Senator Michael Connelly is leading the charge to stop the progressive tax scheme in Illinois.

Currently the state constitution has an amendment that stipulates that the state will only have an across the board flat tax for everyone. It won’t be higher for some and lower for others as a graduated tax is. Those who wrote this measure in the constitution put it into law because they felt that a flat tax would help small businesses and give the state’s tax structure some stability. Now, Democrats want to throw that stability to the four winds.

To sell the idea, Democrats are pretending that this progressive income tax would only hit “the rich,” but right at the outset this is a lie. Several proposals show that it would hit everyone right at the beginning.

The other day I mentioned how interesting it was to see Fox Business Network continue to grow and make inroads into the ratings of the once wholly dominant CNBC. Today FBN announced that it has stolen away one of CNBC’s biggest names. FBN has announced that it has signed Maria Bartiromo to a multi-year contract.

According to the press release, FBN chief Roger Ailes proudly said, “I tapped Maria to report live from the floor of the New York Stock Exchange while at CNBC, and I am delighted to have her join me once again alongside our star lineup at FOX Business”

Bartiromo had been with CNBC since 1993 and in 1995 became the first business journalist to report from the floor of the New York Stock Exchange. Before her long stint at CNBC, Bartiromo worked for CNN’s business news.

Illinois keeps racking up those plaudits as the worst of the worst states in the country, this time coming in second of the top states for outward migration. Illinois has seen more of its citizens fleeing its failing edifice than every other state but New Jersey.

This list is maintained by one of the nation’s largest moving companies, United Van Lines and is compiled every year as the company tracks the migrations statistics of the nation.

“As the nation’s largest household goods mover, United’s shipment data illustrates national state-to-state migration trends,” Carl Walter, vice president of United Van Lines said in a statement. “We’ve been tracking the number of inbound and outbound domestic moves for nearly 40 years, and through our study are able to identify the states that are attracting or losing residents.”

Allowing Unions to Organize Volkswagen is Like ‘Injecting Cancer’ Into US Auto Industry

It seems like a foolish move by Volkswagen for allowing the United Auto Workers (UAW) to organize its American plants. Not only did the UAW screw Volkswagen in the past, but even now the union admits that it is raising union dues solely to replenish its strike fund so unionistas can walk out. It’s like Volkswagen is buying its own rope for its execution.

Or, as Steve Moore of The Wall Street Journal says, “it’s like inserting a cancer cell into a body.”

That is how Journal editorial board member Moore characterized the act of allowing the UAW to organize Volkswagen’s American auto plants. “That one cancer cell is going to multiply and kill the body. It’s a disruptive influence,” he continued.

Worse, the UAW wants to raise dues for members for the expressed reason of filling strike fund coffers, this according to UAW Boss Bob King.

So, if Volkswagen gives in to the UAW’s demands it will only be helping the union to walk out at the earliest opportunity.

OfficeMax Sends Flyer Addressed to ‘Daughter Killed in Car Crash’

An OfficeMax stationary store in suburban Chicago has courted controversy and raised questions of consumer privacy by sending a direct mail flyer to the home of a man whose daughter was killed in a car accident addressing the mail to the resident and “Daughter Killed in Car Crash Or Current Business.”

The mail was sent to the home of Antioch resident Mike Seay whose 17-year-old daughter, Ashley, was killed in a car accident in April of 2013.

Seay said he thinks of his lost daughter every day, but when that OfficeMax coupon came in the mail addressed like that he was shocked and outraged.

“Why would they have that type of information? Why would they need that?” Seay told Chicago’s NBC affiliate. “What purpose does it serve anybody to know that? And how much other types of other information do they have if they have that on me, or anyone else? And how do they use that, what do they use that for?”

Northern elites love to look down their noses and sneer at southerners whom they consider loutish hayseeds who are just plain stupid. But as many in the north have dismissed the south, our states south of Mason and Dixon’s line has risen again right under the north’s very nose. Now, the best quality of life is in the south.

Recently Joel Kotkin noted that much of the economic power in the United States today is located in the old Confederacy where taxes are low, weather is pleasant, and jobs are plentiful. Meanwhile, the north is struggling under mounting debt, job loss, and rising taxes and a dwindling populace to tax.

In his article, “How The South Will Rise To Power Again,” Kotkin points out that current trends show that, “the South will expand its dominance as the nation’s most populous region. In the 1950s, the South, the Northeast and the Midwest each had about the same number of people. Today the region is almost as populous as the Northeast and the Midwest combined.”

Jimmy Kimmel Reminds Youth They Are Paying for Old Folks’ Expensive Obamacare Insurance

ABC’s late night comedian Jimmy Kimmel did an hilarious job slamming Obamacare and pointing out to young people that under Obamacare they are the ones stuck paying for the expensive healthcare needed by the elderly with a spoof “commercial” about the President’s disastrous healthcare policy (See video above).

You see, the way Obamacare is supposed to work is that millions of young people who are healthy and don’t need to use health insurance are supposed to buy it anyway so that the premium money they are paying into the system can be given to the elderly who need coverage now. It really is little else but a giant pyramid scheme.

Obamacare Disaster Continues: Sen. Rand Paul’s Son Ends Up on Medicaid

The disaster that is Obamacare rolls ever onward. This time we have U.S. Senator Rand Paul who has been trying to get his own family signed up for Obamacare only to find that the state of Kentucky automatically assigned Paul’s own son to Medicaid even though the Senator was trying to arrange for an insurance policy he intends to pay for himself.

Senator Paul is no indigent character, here, and he has plenty of money to pay for healthcare insurance for his family. But as he attempted to sign up for insurance through his state-based Obamacare exchange, the state automatically signed his son up for Medicaid, the health service that is supposed to be reserved for the poor.

As Paul notes in the video clip above, the state of Kentucky is supposed to have one of the best services in the nation–a low bar, there–but if the state is shunting people who can pay for their insurance into Medicaid, that is another failure of the system that should not be happening.

Obama Exposed In Another Major Obamacare Lie

If the Old Media establishment were honest, Barack Obama would long ago have replaced Richard Nixon as the biggest liar in Presidential history. And now, a new study reveals yet another major Obama lie.

Just last November, for instance, President Barack “Milhous” Obama said that his failed Obamacare law would make healthcare cheaper by keeping more Americans out of emergency rooms.

Obama said of insurance companies and hospitals, that, “instead of having to take in folks in the emergency room, they suddenly have customers who have insurance. That means those of you who already have health insurance, your premiums will not be subsidizing folks who don’t have health insurance. People will get preventive care, which means that people are likely to be healthier.”

But a new study proves that this is simply a pipe dream.

Now Liberals Want an Obamacare Czar, Telling Obama to Name ‘CEO’

As Obamacare continues to spiral down into an ever deeper morass, Democrats are coming to understand that the law will be an anchor around their necks in the upcoming 2014 midterm elections and so they badly want the mess fixed before it is too late. Now they are urging Obama to pick another czar to fix the healthcare law, this time calling the position a “CEO” for Obamacare.

According to Newsmax, Obama’s supporters have been quietly pushing the President to appoint a single person, a “CEO” of sorts, to head up the fixes for the President’s disastrous takeover of our nation’s healthcare system.

One advocate of this scheme is reportedly Ezekiel Emanuel, one of Obama’s chief healthcare advisors and brother to Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel. Ezekiel is part of the extremist, left-wing, George Soros-funded, anti-American organization misleadingly called the Center for American Progress (CAP), so those folks are behind this hail Mary pass, too.

A&E Backs Down, Cancels Phil Robertson’s ‘Duck Dynasty’ Suspension

The A&E network has suddenly reversed its widely panned decision to “indefinitely suspend” Duck Dynasty family patriarch Phil Robertson and has announced that Robertson is now back on the show.

A&E must have thought it could quietly announce that it had reversed its decision to suspend Phil Robertson by making an announcement late on Friday.

Following Obama’s well known practice of dumping government documents into public view late on Friday after most DC reporters have left for the weekend, A&E made its announcement late on Friday hoping no one would notice. But it’s no dice. The whole world has heard the news making it look like A&E is one of the biggest fools in the entertainment industry.

A&E was slammed by millions of Duck Dynasty fans for its knee-jerk, PC decision to suspend Robertson for his Biblically-based comments on homosexuality. Responding to left-wing complaints over what Robertson said to GQ magazine, the network quickly dumped Poppa Phil from his show.

Bloomberg is reporting that the Duck Dynasty empire amounts to some $500 million and if the show doesn’t come back on the air this could all be at risk of disappearing. But, is the money really a concern to the Robertsons? It sure doesn’t seem so.

Regardless, for Bloomberg, its all about the money. The December 23 article does a good job detailing where all the money is coming from in the Duck Dynasty franchise, but family patriarch Phil Robertson, Bloomberg says, put it all at risk with his comments about homosexuality made in an interview with GQ magazine.

Naturally, like nearly every other left leaning media outlet, Bloomberg mischaracterizes Robertson’s comments. As Bloomberg explains it, Robertson got in trouble for, “telling GQ magazine that homosexuals were akin to adulterers, the greedy, drunkards and swindlers and would not ‘inherit the kingdom of God.’”

Monday, December 23 was supposed to be deadline day for Obamacare, the day when everyone in the country was supposed to have signed up for Obamacare. But for many who were trying to do so, a crashed website turned out to be the Christmas gift that wouldn’t stop giving.

Apparently the many months of constant “fixes” didn’t help put the website on stable footing so that last minute insurance hunters could scoot in under the law’s deadline.

Obama has spent billions of tax dollars selling this failed website and hundreds of millions on faulty website code-writers who have not been able to get much of the site in working order.

White House officials announced that on Monday Obama “signed up” for his own signature–and massively failed–healthcare system.

On Monday afternoon, April Ryan, the White House Correspondent and Washington Bureau Chief for American Urban Radio Networks, was all excited to Tweet that “President Obama signed up for insurance and selected the Bronze plan for health insurance over the weekend while on vacation.”

This, of course, was the propaganda that the White House fed their lapdog mediot. The truth is, Obama himself was not involved in signing up for anything. He is on vacation in Hawaii. It was the White House propaganda office that did it for him as a way to get the nation talking about Obamacare as the hours wind down until the so-called sign up deadline arrives.

Obama was asked to respond to his lie of the year award by no less than a reporter from The New York Times, a paper that was mocked mercilessly for claiming that Obama had merely “misspoken” when he lied three dozen times telling us we could keep our healthcare plans and doctors when he knew full well we most Americans would end up losing them.

NYT reporter Jacki Calmes wound up a long-winded question on Obama’s lie of the year close to the end of the press conference. When he responded, of course, he ignored the question and went rambling on about things unconnected to Politifact’s finding.

VIDEO: A New Kirk Dillard Slam Making the Rounds

-By Warner Todd Huston

Thus far about the only GOP gubernatorial hopeful in the news has been Bruce Rauner (brucerauner.com). With his many promises to rewrite the whole Illinois Constitution to fix what ails us and his deep pockets he was early out of the chute. But this week a video slamming Kirk Dillard has also popped up showing that the race is just starting to warm up.

Of course Rauner, with all his millions of dollars, has hit the ground early with TV ads most of which slam current governor, Democrat Pat Quinn. Rauner is acting as if he is already the nominee, ignoring his competitors and going straight at Quinn and other lifer politicians.

Whatever you think of all Rauner’s many and varied promises, pretending he is the only one in the race is probably a good strategy. In any case, as things stand now, he is sucking up all the oxygen in the race.

But, wait. Today came a snide attack on Kirk Dillard (www.dillardtracy.com).

Obviously someone thinks he is a threat.

A video titled”Kirk Dillard Presents a Holiday Tribute to Jim Edgar,” came out that treats Dillard as s childish, star struck fan–and maybe a stooge–of former Governor and one-time Dillard boss Jim Edgar.

The video is chock full of images of Dillard gazing admiringly at Governor Edgar and is amusingly played to the rock tune I Touch Myself, by the 1990s Australian band the Divinyls.

The video was posted on a Youtube account under the name “Michael Martin” and ends with a message saying that the video was “brought to you by Kirk Dillard and your friends at MSI.”

For those of you who may have forgotten (as I had at first), MSI stands for Management Services of Illinois. The reference refers to a scandal from August of 2000 that linked aides of Edgar and then Senate President James “Pate” Philip to MSI, a company that was accused of bilking the state out of some $12 million dollars.

Whole Foods CEO: Obamacare Will Create a Permanent Part-Time Workforce

The CEO of Whole Foods, well known for standing against Obamacare, recently pointed out that the President’s government take over of our healthcare system will create a permanent part-time work force filled with positions that will never be able to advance to full time work. Because of that, Obamacare is hardly a very American ideal as it puts a government-enforce, concrete ceiling on top of workers who hope to better themselves.

Whole Foods CEO John Mackey appeared on Fox News with Stuart Varney on December 18 to discuss the negative impact that Obamacare is having on the nation’s economy and its workforce.

After 35 years in business, Mackey knows how badly Obamacare will hurt the country. “It’s raising our costs,” Mackey said. “We’ll have to cover things that are expensive that we may not want to cover, our team members may not want to have covered,” he pointed out.

Talk about sexual objectifying!

The video is, of course, meant to push Obamacare on the country, but by appealing to the tiny 2% of the country that is gay…. that sure seems like a “narrow” casting of the message, doesn’t it?

Pope Francis Tells Rush Limbaugh ‘I Am Not a Marxist’

Three days ago I discussed why Time magazine picked Catholic Pope Francis as its “man of the year.” We noted that the only reason the magazine would have picked this months-old Pope for its cover is because of his recent Marxist-styled attack on capitalism. Now the Pope has come out to assure his flock and warn commentators like Rush Limbaugh that he isn’t a Marxist.

Last week conservative talker Rush Limbaugh lambasted the Pope’s address from two weeks ago saying that his attack on capitalism was “pure Marxism.” For much of last week the media here and abroad went gaga over Rush’s “attack” on the Pope.

Now the Pope himself is trying to ally fears that he is a Marxist, telling Limbaugh and other critics that he isn’t one.

During an interview with the Italian newspaper La Stampa, the Pope said that Marxism is wrong.

This choice is odd for several reasons–after all the Pope stands against most of Time’s leftist ideals–but maybe the Pope’s recent Marxist-styled attack on capitalism explains the choice?

“We sent these politicians to Congress in an historic landslide election in 2010 with a mandate to stop the runaway spending train bankrupting our nation, not to wave to it from the station or – heaven forbid – increase its speed. And yet, here we are still pretending that there are no real world consequences to running up near trillion dollar deficits year after year with no end in sight.”
