More hidden facts about the downside of Obama Care


By Jim Campbell

Things that happen when our elected representatives pass a bill without knowing what is in it.

1. Hidden in Health care law: Calorie Count For All Menu Items

A requirement tucked into the nation’s massive health care law will make calorie counts impossible for thousands of restaurants to hide and difficult for consumers to ignore. More than 200,000 fast food and other chain restaurants will have to include calorie counts on menus, menu boards and even drive-troughs.
The new law, which applies to any restaurant with 20 or more locations, directs the Food and Drug Administration to create a new national standard for menu labeling, superseding a growing number of state and city laws.

ONLY A CLUELESS IGNORANT ELECTORATE COULD HAVE ALLOWED THIS TO  HAPPEN.

2. Breast Feeding Mothers:

The law, which applies to companies with more than 50 workers, says an employer shall provide a reasonable break time for an employee to express the milk. And that it must be a place other than a bathroom, that is shielded from view, and free of intrusion from workers and the public.

3. Democrat Health Care Bill is Sexist and Anti-Mom:

When Nancy Pelosi said” being a woman will no longer be considered a pre-existing medical condition.” “She might have ‘read the law before she talked about it,” said Mary Jane Smiles of Santa Ana, CA.

Under the new health care law:

The Mommy taxes, including the tampon tax (KO-TAX)
As the result of a public back lash, the proposed tax was then amended to only be applied to Class II items that are at a price point of $100 or higher.

That was still a major tax increase on a large number of items and procedures, but was more of a “hidden tax” on fewer people that would be passed on indirectly by their health care providers.

Being a woman now does become a pre-existing condition, for which we are to be taxed punitively. The Democrat health care bill punishes women. For being women. It is also decidedly not For The Children ™.

4. Taxes on Medical Devices

HR 4872, Health Care and Education Reconciliation Act of 2010, As Passed By The House:

“SEC. 4191. MEDICAL DEVICES. (a) IN GENERAL. There is hereby imposed on the sale of any taxable medical device by the manufacturer, producer, or importer a tax equal to 2.3 percent of the price for which so sold. (b) TAXABLE MEDICAL DEVICE.—For purposes of this section— (1) IN GENERAL.—The term ‘taxable medical device’ means any device (as defined in section 201(h) of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act) intended for humans. (2) EXEMPTIONS. —Such term shall not include— (A) eyeglasses, (B) contact lenses, (C) hearing aids, and (D) any other medical device determined by the Secretary to be of a type which is generally purchased by the general public at retail for individual use.’’

5. New Hidden Tax Provisions

According to Section 9006 of the 2,409-page Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, beginning on January 1, 2012 all businesses will have to issue 1099 tax forms not just to contractors but to any individual or corporation from which they buy more than $600 in goods or services in a tax year. Currently 1099s need only be issued to individuals, not corporations.

The requirement will now include items such as shipping charges, hotel bills, and equipment purchases, all currently exempt from 1099 reporting.

The removal of the corporate exemption had been bandied about Washington for years, most notably in a Government Accountability Office paper last year that suggested the government could close the “tax gap,” an estimated $345 billion in federal taxes annually in part because there was no 1099 paper trail on the income.

6. More forms:

IRS advisory has stated this could result in a fivefold increase in 1099 filings once the new law is applied in 2012
Section 1501 also spells out exceptions, those who are not considered “applicable” individuals, both for the mandate and for the penalty. Illegal aliens, foreign nationals and incarcerated prisoners, for example, are exempt from the mandate. The extreme poor and members of Indian tribes, while not exempt from the requirement, are nonetheless excused from paying the penalty.
But section 1501 also carries a pair of “religious exemptions” that will allow the Amish to escape the mandate but require Muslims and other religious objectors to get more creative

9. Certain Religious Groups Exempted?:

Section 1501 of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act adds a new chapter to the Internal Revenue Code mandating all “applicable” individuals either obtain health insurance that meets the bill’s “minimum essential coverage” standards or pay a penalty on tax day.

Section 1501 also spells out exceptions, those who are not considered “applicable” individuals, both for the mandate and for the penalty. Illegal aliens, foreign nationals and incarcerated prisoners, for example, are exempt from the mandate. The extreme poor and members of Indian tribes, while not exempt from the requirement, are nonetheless excused from paying the penalty.
But section 1501 also carries a pair of “religious exemptions” that will allow the Amish to escape the mandate but require Muslims and other religious objectors to get creative.
