Andrew Cuomo explaining how much he wishes to tax you…

 

Democrats love taxes. They’ll tax anything, anyway they can. Their mantra is Pay up, sucka!

But even by their standards, this latest Catch-22 is over the top.

As we all know, if you don’t have health insurance, Obama will tax you.

But now, if you DO have health insurance, Andrew Cuomo will tax you.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s new budget includes a nearly $69 million tax on health-insurance policies to pay for the administrative costs of continuing New York’s ObamaCare health exchange, The Post has learned.

The levy is intended to make up for federal funds no longer available to the states as of this year. Adding up to about $25 per person insured under the plan, the cost is almost certainly going to be passed on to consumers.

The tax is being called a bait-and-switch by opponents of Cuomo’s decision to start a state-run ObamaCare health exchange in New York. Had he not done so, they argue, there would have been no need for the tax.

“There was no indication that there would be a new tax to pay for this. We had plenty of debate on ObamaCare. I never heard this mentioned,” said Assemblyman Steve McLaughlin (R-Troy).

Damned if you do, damned if you don’t.

Because ObamaCare is so gosh-darned wonderful, right? A bargain at twice the price! Or something.

The important thing is that we pay. And then pay some more.

Democrats. Meh.

How ironic would it be if a college, a bastion of liberalism, got stung by ObamaCare mandates?  What if the professors, who program youth with the glories of socialism, had to live with the consequences of their policies?  Well, it has happened at Community College of Allegheny County.  Breitbart has the details, and the ir0ny…

Pennsylvania’s Community College of Allegheny County (CCAC) is slashing the hours of 400 adjunct instructors, support staff, and part-time instructors to dodge paying for Obamacare.

“It’s kind of a double whammy for us because we are facing a legal requirement [under the new law] to get health care and if the college is reducing our hours, we don’t have the money to pay for it,” said adjunct biology professor Adam Davis.

On Tuesday, CCAC employees were notified that Obamacare defines full-time employees as those working 30 hours or more per week and that on Dec. 31 temporary part-time employees will be cut back to 25 hours. The move will save an estimated $6 million. 

So then, these folks got what they voted for, and they aren’t happy about it.  I guess they didn’t take the time to find what we have know for a couple years, that ObamaCare was going to cost jobs and hours.  In the end, all we can say is…

Elections have consequences.
