These clowns can’t get anything right. Today’s Obamacare debacle? 800,000 bogus tax forms.
The White House has some bad news for those ObamaCare-insured taxpayers who prepared for early tax filing — or actually had already filed. That form that they sent out about premiums and subsidies? More than ten percent of them turned out to be wrong, so … you’ll have to either wait to calculate your taxes, or have a do-over.
They’ll mail corrected forms “soon.”
Hey, filing your taxes wasn’t painful enough, right?
It’s not just the federal exchange, either. The Covered California system issued 100,000 erroneous tax forms, too. The AP has no word on other state exchanges, but it’s beginning to look like ObamaCare may snarl tax preparation for weeks.
But don’t worry, your health care is in the very best of hands!
Really. You’d think Obama would take a few minutes from playing golf or apologizing to Muslims to make sure his signature legislation isn’t screwing over the people he’s claiming to help.
Meanwhile, HHS has Hillary’s back — if a low-information voter has been living under a rock for the past 5 years she can still sign up for Obamacare even though enrollments are technically “closed” for 2015.
The Obama administration said it would allow people to sign up for plans on HealthCare.gov through April to avoid tax penalties for going uncovered in 2015.
The extension, which adds more than two months to the enrollment period for health coverage this year, was announced by Health and Human Services officials on Friday.
People who pay penalties for going uncovered in 2014 and are still uninsured will be allowed to visit HealthCare.gov until the end of April, said Andy Slavitt, principal deputy administrator at the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, the HHS unit overseeing implementation of the law. They will be able to apply for coverage starting March 15 as long as they attest that they didn’t learn about the health law’s requirement to carry insurance or pay the fine when they filed their taxes. The site had closed Sunday for most users.
Democrats were in a panic that their voters would get socked with two tax penalties this year, and take it out on Hillary Clinton’s presidential ambitions in 2016.
Besides, deadlines are for suckers. Obama’s minions just rewrite the law to suit their whims, because, uh, it’s good to be king!
It’s us peons who have to live with the fallout. Good thing I haven’t filed my taxes yet.
