The Obama administration: finding new and innovative ways to screw you and the horse you rode in on. This particular ‘#Fustercluck’ making the rounds on Twitter involves 800,000 Obamacare enrollees who received incorrect tax statements.
As many as 20% of statements listed the wrong local premium, said Andy Slavitt, principal deputy administrator at the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, the HHS unit overseeing implementation of the law. Officials said those who received an incorrect statement are being notified. Some 50,000 appear to have already filed their taxes, and those who haven’t are being told to wait until they get corrected statements.
Those who received too large a tax credit must reimburse the government, and those who received too little can claim a refund.
It takes a whole heap of incompetence to combine the FWA* of two government agencies—each of which is capable of heaving massive weapons of mass destruction on citizens—creating a witch’s brew bucket of unflavored suck for 800,000 families. Not to mention the 50,000 who have already filed.
In the commercial world, the Sokolove Law infomercials would already be running on the Hallmark Channel and Game Show Network. But there’s no cause of action against the “Indominus Rex” (click link at your own peril; spoiler alert for Jurassic World movie) engineered courtesy of Obama Labs. This monster will chase you down, eat you for breakfast, vomit you up and eat you again for dinner.
Meanwhile, Democrats keep violating the ACA they created (and didn’t know what it does until they read it), by pushing the enrollment periods further and further back. It was
December February March, now it’s April 30. Soon they’ll just say screw it and move it to October 31, just in time for the 2015 enrollment period. Obamacare was hatched in the Duke Nukem (NSFW) school of government, “nuk’em till they glow and shoot’em in the dark”.
“The Obama administration has built a health-care law so complex, so confusing, and so costly that even they don’t know how to properly administer it,” said [mc_name name=’Rep. Diane Black (R-TN)’ chamber=’house’ mcid=’B001273′ ] (R., Tenn.). “Nearly one million Americans could see their tax refunds delayed because of this President’s inability to implement his own law.”
Law? To this administration, the law is a human institution. King Obama and his royal court don’t deign to follow such a proletarian course as implementing a law. He With a Phone and a Pen (and a Golf Club) merely speaks it into being, and his minions in congress make it so. If the now-RINO-controlled congress can muster the testicular fortitude to unravel just one of Obama’s constitutional toilet-paperings, there’s a Lilliputian possibility that some of those who suffer anal bleeding from this latest round of government date-rape can recover before the next president takes office.
If you’re one of those suffering from Obamacare-induced hemorrhoids, send the bill for Preparation H to the White House.
