EMIEL FISHER’S SECURITY BLOG / NOVEMBER 9, 20187 / THURSDAY

I HAVE PLACED THE FULL ARTICLE BELOW FOR THOSE THAT DON’T SUBSCRIBE TO THE WALL STREET JOURNAL. IT IS THE LIBOTARD TRAITOR, JOHN KOSKINEN’S SCREWING OF AMERICAN BUSINESS BY THE IRS.

COMMENTS GIVEN FREELY: I will put my comments first here. You can read the article below to be depressed and pissed off at the traitor Koskinen, Obama and the gutless politicians who voted for the Unaffordable Care Act (Obamacrap). He is screwing American businesses now because he is leaving and living off of American tax payer dollars in his retirement, full healthcare benefits for free for life I might add. It will be tough, but Trump should let this screw job go through as it will now put massive pressure on American business and the American workers who will have to be fired to pay the penalties and the healthcare extortion. Up to now there has been no pressure, but it will be now. Obama screwed us all and didn’t enforce his own laws because he knew there would be tremendous kick back, but now Koskinen is going to do, after three years, what he should have done the first year, enforce Obama’s sorry ass law, and suffer the blow back. As in all things politic, Koskinen was a piss bucket tool for Obama and Hillary Climinal. He is a low life scum bag, always was and always will be. Hopefully, Americans put out of work by this crap law will go after the gutless politicians that would not put a hatchet in Obamacrap for good. If they don’t Trump should scream at the top of his voice, “I told you idiots what was coming, now suffer the consequences!” MAGA!

KOSKINEN’S PARTING GIFT FROM THE IRS

IRS Commissioner John Koskinen has made no secret of his contempt for Republicans who tried to hold his agency to account for Tea Party targeting. His payback as he walks out the door is a major hit on employers.

The IRS confirmed Tuesday that it is now for the first time beginning to enforce the Obama Care employer mandate, issuing thousands of penalty letters to noncompliant companies. The letters are on the way to firms with more than 50 employees that have failed to provide what ObamaCare defines as qualifying coverage to its workers. The letters reach back to 2015, setting up companies for years of penalties.

The IRS was supposed to start this enforcement in 2014, but the Obama Administration never got around to it. The employer mandate is among the bill’s most unpopular provisions and the White House feared the economic fallout. Mr. Koskinen long attributed the delay to a lack of resources and the time it took to stand up enforcement systems.

Yet after Donald Trump’s inauguration the IRS suddenly found its giddy-up, and last week it quietly issued agency guidance. Mr. Koskinen’s last day in the job is Thursday. You decide if the timing is a coincidence.

Nobody knows how many businesses will be hit, but by some estimates it will be tens of thousands. The Congressional Budget Office estimated in 2015 that employers would owe $9 billion in fiscal 2016 and $13 billion in fiscal 2017. This comes as premiums continue to rise on the ObamaCare exchanges.

The mandate is particularly burdensome for smaller job creators hard-pressed to comply with an extraordinarily complex mandate that requires them to report on the status of every employee and dependent. The letters are also a blindside hit, since the IRS was silent about its plans.

Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin could have overruled Mr. Koskinen and delayed enforcement until the IRS could better prepare the business community. The IRS is not an independent agency but is part of Treasury, and the IRS Commissioner reports to the secretary. The employer mandate remains the law, though Republicans on Capitol Hill have been trying to repeal it.

Treasury’s defense is that the law says the IRS “shall” enforce the mandate, and a Treasury spokesperson said: “Based on a review by Treasury lawyers, there is no ground for the Secretary to direct the IRS to not send out the letters to collect this tax.” But that view was hotly contested inside the White House, and after so long a delay, allowing some time for a new IRS chief to review is hardly stretching the law.

At Treasury Mr. Mnuchin has ducked every fight that looks politically tough—on marginal tax rates, the Federal Reserve, bank regulation, the MetLife case, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. It’s a shame he’s now taken a powder on Mr. Koskinen’s parting gift.

DEMOCRAPS WIN SOME! WOO! WOO! (SO WHAT!)
http://thehill.com/homenews/campaign/359310-dems-win-from-coast-to-coast

COMMENTS GIVEN FREELY: The Democraps and Libotards won offices that they were expected to win. In Virginia all of the libotards, democraps and foreigners in northern Virginia and few other large cities swayed the vote to the Democraps. This was expected and predicted. They attack Donald Trump still because their butts are still sore after the ass kicking last November. There is NO gotcha here it is just the same old whiny democraps and libotards doing what they do. I will say that Gillespie was not a well liked candidate. The racists and corrupt clowns at the DNC will do their war dance that sounds more like hyenas whining over an already dead animal. We, Republicans and conservatives will have to listen to it for weeks and months to come. This is the torture of politics and whiny crying democraps.

OBAMACRAP SIGNUPS SURGE IN EARLY DAYS TO SET RECORD
http://thehill.com/policy/healthcare/359011-obamacare-signups-surge-in-early-days-to-set-new-record

COMMENTS GIVEN FREELY: Maybe you haven’t heard yet being an idiot and all, but its against the law not to sign up. We thought the gutless whiny democraps and Republicans would do the right thing and put this disease to bed for good, but that would be giving scumbags credit. We are stuck with the extortion of Obamacrap and supporting the garbage from the Swamp! I put this entirely on the shoulders of the monolithically traitorous and gutless JOHN MCCAIN. Put that in your self-hero worship scumbag resume Johnny Boy, Democrap tool! There are no wins here only America having to support a bankrupt, idiotic, collapsing democrap program. My insurance went up 33% this one year, $200.00 a month for nothing. Just another tax on the wealthy by the democraps and worst President ever elected, Barack Obama.
