Six Million Taxpayers To Owe IRS For ObamaCare Tax…Wait, It’s Not A Tax, So, Penalty Or Fine Or Oh Alright, It’s A Tax

Hat/Tip to Newsmax. In 2009, President Obama and George Stephanopoulos got into a feisty discussion on whether ObamaCare was a tax or a penalty or a fine or a…*sigh* Anyway, it went something like this: GS: “Under this mandate, the government is forcing people to spend money, fining you if you don’t. How is that not a tax?” To which, Obama offered his standard, rambling response… BO: “Well, hold on a second, George. Here’s what’s happening. You and I are both paying $900, on average—our families—in higher premiums because of uncompensated care. Now what I’ve said is that if you can’t afford […]

Story Update: Woman’s Tax Refund Stolen By Government for Something She Did Not Owe

In what appears to be the next IRS scandal, the government is stealing tax refunds from people-even if they do not know if the targeted person actually did anything wrong.  Greta covered that recently. Watch the latest video at  We know that government, and especially the left, believes that all wealth and income belongs to them-not you. The honestly believe that government, as “god,” determines what, if any, of your income that you GET to keep. Given that belief, it should be no surprise that this is happening.  And, if they have to tax you into poverty, they’ll do […]

Just as Predicted, Insurance Premiums Continue to Skyrocket-Because of ObamaCare

ObamaCare was supposed to decrease heath insurance premiums.  In fact, we were promised a $2500 DECREASE in ObamaCare Premiums.  Instead, however, we are seeing vast INCREASES in premiums.  I guess, just like the “If you like your plan” lie, and just like the “If you like your doctor” lie, the “premiums are going to go down” claim is every bit the lie as the first two.  Wyblog has more… Now, in a Superfecta of Obamacare #fail, if you were expecting to save $2,500 per year, well, the joke’s on you. Do you remember when Barack Obama told you the average […]

Your Tax Dollars at Work: Obama Voter Explains Why She Refuses to Work

This person is funded by your tax dollars, and it should come as a no surprise.   Would it come as a surprise that she was Obama Voter? Yeah, this has been going on for years.  With social media, it is easier to see, as it encourages people to be more vocal. H/T: Buzzpo  

Just in Case You Needed a Reminder; The ObamaCare is a TAX!

The Hobby Lobby Care was being heard before the Supreme Court today, and while liberal justices were dismissive of religious rights, as predicted, they also reminded us of another lie told by democrats. There are no taxes in ObamaCare! Just like, “if you like your plan,” or, “if you like your doctor,” lies, the no taxes claim will go down as one of the many blatant lies told by democrats in order to gain support for ObamaCare.  Wyblog has the details… Kagan, Sotomayor to Hobby Lobby: Pay the Obamacare Jizya, you Christofascist women-haters It’s no surprise that Obamabot Justices Elena […]

Will The Government Steal Your Savings? It’s More Likely Than You Think?

This has been a recurrent theme for several years.  It’s been simmering on the back burner, so to speak, but it continues to get some attention from time to time.  The issue is savings.  Whether it be your 401k, or your IRA, or even a savings account; the democrats has been eying them like a crackhead views their pipe.  Big government has wasted trillions on making more poor people, creating dependency, paying off contributors, punishing enemies, arming those that kill Christians, and trying to prop up their union buddies.  Now, after building up an unsustainable debt, they need another fix, […]

Ignorance Is Not Bliss. Ignorance Is The Tool Of Those Who Would Rule Over Us

Something has been bothering me since Boehner and McConnell and the Republicans caved-in to raising the debt level….again. America and most of the rest of the developed world, for that matter, has been building a mountain of debt that will bury us all one day in the not to distant future. We conservative/libertarians are the only ones who seem to be worried about the debt. The people we elect to our federal government see themselves as some kind of Robin Hood. They steal money from those that earned it and give it to people who did not earn it. The […]

The #ObamaCare Draft Card Might be Flammable: Yahoo News Reporting That IRS Can Only Collect ObamaCare Tax if You Get A Refund

Back in August, I covered the claims that the ObamaCare “penalty,” or tax, can only be collected if one is owed a tax return.  No tax return, according to the claim, no tax collected.  Yahoo News has more… As it stands now, the individuals who don’t obtain health coverage in a given year (and are not exempt from the mandate) are subject to a fine of $95 for an individual or 1% of family income, whichever is greater. In 2015, the penalty increases to $325 per adult, or 2% of family income, whichever is greater. How exactly will the penalty […]

Obama Is Eyeing Your Savings!

Remember when President Obama said “there comes a point when a person has earned enough”? Well, it should be a surprise that he also feels that people have saved more than they need for retirement. Mr. Obama has given new meaning to the word “arrogance”. With this scandal a day administration, it is no wonder some of their plans to get their hands on more of your money slip under the radar. On Aril 12, 2013, the Wall Street Journal wrote: How many times have you read financial-advice stories lecturing you to max-out on your IRA, save as much as […]

Idaho Tax Commission Demands “Tribute” From 12 Year-Old

A 12 year-old in Idaho dared to sell fruit by the road.  The state of Idaho seeks to punish him for it. News of a 12-year-old boy being investigated by the Idaho State Tax Commission has sparked a swift response from some members of the state Legislature. One senator is asserting that the staff at the state’s tax commission is too large, while a member of the House of Representatives is suggesting that it is time to reform the state’s tax laws. “I read with interest the requirement of a 12-year-old boy to collect sales tax,” wrote Sen. Steven Thayn, […]

It’s called the “Marketplace Fairness Act” and it’s Anything but Fair

Well Congress is at it again.  They’re trying to ram through a bill called the “Marketplace Fairness Act” and it’s anything but fair.  It’s a bill that would fundamentally change interstate commerce by imposing tax burdens on Internet-based businesses while not applying the same burdens to brick-and-mortar companies.  It’s extremely discriminatory by its very nature.  Representative Mike Enzi (R, Wyo) tried to introduce this flawed bill back in February, but it met stiff opposition in committee so Enzi was forced to shelve it.  Two months later it has been restructured so that it qualifies for a Senate rule that allows […]

The Fiscal Cliff, and Why We’ve Already Lost, and will Continue to Lose

OK, we’re facing the infamous “fiscal cliff.”  What doe that mean?  It means that a crisis has been manufactured in order for Obama to triumph, and the Republicans to be scapegoated.  Here’s how it will happen. 1.  If both Houses and the POTUS fail to reach an agreement (read, if he Republicans fail to capitulate) there will be a rather unpleasant set of tax increases and budget cuts. 2.It doesn’t matter how many proposals the Republicans make.  It won’t matter how many times the Democrats change the rules or break their word-it will ALWAYS be the Republican’s fault. 3.  Reality doesn’t matter, and the MSM will […]

Kroger to Slash Hours of Workers to Avoid ObamaCare Penalites

If you are an hourly worker at Kroger, there is a good chance that your hours will either cut, or your chances of becoming a full time worker are nil.  And the cause for this? ObamaCare! Dung Ross (no relation), has more… To give you a sense of Kroger’s size and importance, its sales last year were $90 billion and it employs nearly 350,000 people. Most of its jobs are hourly and the vast majority of workers are neither millionaires or billionaires. Faith is a mid-level manager at Kroger and reports the dire news: Last week we found out that, […]

List of Ways Government Can Now Control You After Obamatax Decisions

The real tragedy of the recent decision on Obamatax is not that it was upheld on the grounds that the government has the right to regulate commercial activity and thus can make people engage in commercial activity (a line of reasoning that I disagreed with but would see how the backwards folk out there would come to), but that it was upheld because the anything that might be considered a tax is always legal (or some such grounds- like clear thinking really matters any more in this political world). The door has been opened- to both Republicans and Democrats and […]

John Roberts: Missing the Mark or Right on Target?

When I first heard that Obamacare along with the individual mandate was found to be constitutional I was shocked.  When I learned that one of our own, Justice John Roberts crossed over to the dark side in a 5-4 ruling I was appalled.  The end of liberty was at hand.  The great experiment had finally unraveled and the republic our founders gave us we could not keep.  I couldn’t believe Justice Roberts ruled that the individual mandate was constitutional because he interpreted that the penalty imposed was actually a tax and within the constitutional authority of the congress to levy […]

Valerie Jarrett Admits the Personal Mandate is a Tax

But, they insisted on calling it something else.  When I started the original Conservative Hideout, I often spoke of “calling it something else.”  It’s one of the ways that the left repackages their failed ideas.  Simply put, they shine up the excrement, and slap a different name on it.    They didn’t call the personal mandate a tax (in fact, they denied that it was a tax), but they went to court and argued that it was.  Then, when the court said, OK, it’s a tax, the administration came out and said that it still isn’t  a tax.  So, just to follow along; […]

The Dream Is Over: SCOTUS Says You’re No Longer Free

THESE 9 PEOPLE JUST TOLD YOU TO TAKE YOUR MEDICINE This is no longer America. You no longer have the opportunity for the American Dream. You, we, me — we’re all slaves now. The Supreme Court of the United States of America has just made it official. Congress has abandoned you. The executive branch has abandoned you.  SCOTUS has abandoned you. The lapdog media has abandoned you. I had hopes, coming into today, that SCOTUS would uphold the rule of law, that the President of the United States and his Congresscriminal henchmen (and women) would not be allowed to rule you like […]
