Administration Extends Enrollment Period, again.
On February 20 the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) announced the creation of a special enrollment period for taxpayers to avoid penalties for non-compliance with the obamacare individual mandate.
Open enrollment for 2015 officially ended February 15, and prior to the CMS announcement, those who failed to sign up for insurance and weren’t otherwise covered would have been subject to a fine (or “shared responsibility payment”) of the greater of $325 per adult, or two percent of taxable household income when they filed their tax returns in 2016. Because many people may not be aware of the individual mandate penalties until they file their 2014 tax returns this year, CMS extended the deadline to coincide with tax filing deadlines.
We have another moron who doesn't know the difference between the legislative and judicial branches of the government.
"Congress cant vote determine the legality of his EO."
That's right. Now, tell it to the clown obama who pretends to be a constitution expert.
obama Dares GOP: Go Ahead, ‘Have a Vote on Whether What I’m Doing Is Legal…I Will Veto’. Can he really be this stupid?
Meanwhile, Kerry is telling us we have never been so safe. Can you believe anything these idiots are telling us?
Where's Warren? He's busy loading his rail cars with crude oil. obama took good care of ol' Warren when he vetoed the building of the Keystone Pipeline.
Why is that?
obama continued his amnesty tour this week with a stop in Florida. His remarks, both to the crowd during his speech and during an interview with MSNBC’s Jose Diaz-Balart, were rife with the usual “blame the GOP” rhetoric and defenses of the amnesty actions he himself declared beyond his constitutional authority. But he was asked by audience members and his media interviewer as well about why some people were still being deported. His answer was revealing.
MR. DIAZ-BALART: But what are the consequences? Because how do you ensure that ICE agents or Border Patrol won’t be deporting people like this? I mean, what are the consequences
obama: José, look, the bottom line is, is that if somebody is working for ICE and there is a policy and they don’t follow the policy, there are going to be consequences to it. So I can’t speak to a specific problem. What I can talk about is what’s true in the government, generally.
eeeeeerazorrrrrrrrr. Wherrrrrrrrrrre arrrrrrrrrrrrrre you? You can't hide, ya li'l devil. You have an assignment, ya know.
Don't pretend for a minute that obama cares about America's middle class. The Husseins of the world are like that.
This number goes up as the number of obama regulations goes up.

First-time claims for U.S. unemployment benefits rose by much more than expected in the week ended February 21st, according to a report released by the Labor Department on Thursday.
The report said initial jobless claims jumped to 313,000, an increase of 31,000 from the previous week's revised level of 282,000.
Economists had expected jobless claims to edge up to 290,000 from the 283,000 originally reported for the previous week.
When you think of the downstream effects of obama’s EPA regulations, the first states which come to mind tend to be in coal country and what remains of the rust belt and manufacturing centers. That’s all true enough, but it seems that when the government puts its thumb on the scale, the ripples can be felt in ever widening circles. This includes what might be one of the last states you’d think of… Vermont. (Vermont, one of the bluest of blues gets what it voted for. Sweet, huh!)
Vermont will lose 3.4 percent of its manufacturing jobs by 2023 due to obama climate regulations, according to a report on the impact of EPA rules on labor.
In recent years, the EPA has issued new rules for power plants and vehicles in an attempt to cut carbon dioxide emissions. (According to lib loons, a carbon dioxide shortage could cool the planet.)
While many studies examine how the rules will affect global emissions, a study published last week by The Heritage Foundation calculates how many manufacturing jobs states will lose due to environmental regulations.
According to the report, the U.S. will surrender 586,000 manufacturing jobs by 2023 due to increased regulatory cost burdens on businesses. Of those job losses, an estimated 1,378 will come from Vermont.
The Mountain State isn’t the only one in this rather light manufacturing area feeling the squeeze. The report estimates that tiny Rhode Island will lose 3.16% of their manufacturing jobs and New Hampshire will bleed out a shocking 6.39%. But Vermont still seems like the strangest sister in this particular group. How do they explain this? (Let's ask erazor.)
