Has anyone else seen a "Medical Exise Tax" line on their receipts?

The link shows a half dozen receipts from various retailers, with a "medical excise tax" added in.

This, plus the rise in the payroll tax, means every taxpayer is going to be paying higher taxes...but less than the top .01% since they have loopholes to designed by them for their advantage.

So much for not raising taxes on the poor. Fuck the government. They just steal from the poor to give to the rich.

Living with the lowest tax burdens in the modern history of this country is rough.

The payroll tax cut was going to be temporary from the start. No one planned to have it be permanent.

Where are you getting that 90% number from, R4? You seem to be having some problems with reading comprehension.

The Medical Excise Tax only applies to medical devices. That some stores screwed up just means that those individuals who are overcharged can get their money back.

And yes, the payroll tax cut was always intended to be a temporary stimulus. That money is needed to fund Social Security.

Instead of whining that your taxes are going up, perhaps you should instead be grateful that Obama negotiated that two-year benefit for you?

It actually only shows 2 receipts from the same right wing gun shop, OP. On a web site that raves over the glory of Michelle The Cunt Bachmann?

ROFL.... Oh my.... I didn't realize that OP was our usual libertarian/anarchist nutcase. And, as usual, got the basic facts completely wrong. This is hilarious!

Does this mean I'm going to be paying more for dildoes?

He's not a freeper, R9. He's a Ron Paul, anti-Fed, pro-gold, pro-anarchy, pro-gun, anti-government, libertarian lunatic. He has started dozens of threads over the years, all of which are just like this one, where he can't get even the basic facts right.

They all end with him getting his ass handed to him, like this one, or the webmaster getting tired of his spam and locking or deleting the thread.

The Ron Paul crowd is worse than the freepers.

{quote]When you can point out why Anarchy- meaning the ability of people to live freely without worry that someone will force them blah blah blah blah

1 - All of the things you have listed can be achieved without anarchy.

2 - You are wrong on the meaning of the word anarchy. Please try to find another word to use.

In order to get out of this deficit, we have to cut spending by a third, and raise taxes on EVERY American by a third.

These raises are nothing.

Oh, just look at who owns Twitchy, the linked site. That would be Michelle Malkin, the batshit crazy, right wing nut who elevates lying to a performance art on Fox News. HEr newspaper column is even more hysterical. OP is obviously a Freepazoid.

[quote]R8, so, your default position is that all of the money we earn is the property of the government and we should be thankful that they let us keep a portion. That's fucked up.

ROFL.... Why no, dear, that's not my "default position," which is why I didn't say anything even remotely resembling that. What's "fucked up" is your inability to read or to muster a coherent argument. Not to mention, your unquestioned faith in anything you read on those nutcase conspiracy sites you frequent. Case in point, this thread, in which you got it badly wrong.

[quote][R9]- Bachmann is an idiot, but that doesn't invalidate the reality of higher taxes on all of us.

Only if you are purchasing a medical device, which just isn't that many of us.

[quote]When you can point out why Anarchy- meaning the ability of people to live freely...

Life is so much easier when you get to make up your own definitions, isn't it? Now out here in the real world, that's not the way we define anarchy. You should join us here someday.

Note how the OP *still* can't bring himself to acknowledge just how badly he got it wrong in his first post on this thread. Funny, that.

National Legalization of drugs so we can tax it rather than spend our tax dollars to fight a war on it. Legalize gay marriage so we can tax it rather than spend our tax dollars fighting it...

and so on...

Great thread. It shows that the OP, who has been spreading this crap all over DL for weeks, is prone to jumping to conclusions without facts.

by Anonymousreply 2401/05/2013

Obama wanted to extend the payroll tax holiday. Congress did not. THE END.

by Anonymousreply 2501/05/2013

Waiting for the OP to admit he got played. Or lied.
