Americans Have to Pay Back Their ObamaCare Subsidies


A Lot of People Have to Pay Back Their 2014 ObamaCare Subsidies to the IRS
- by Nate Russell

A lot of people who received subsidies from ObamaCare in 2014 are finding out that the Affordable Care Act is forcing them to pay that money back to the Internal Revenue Service because the administration did a poor job of spreading important information.

When individuals enrolled in the program at the beginning of last year they had to estimate their income for 2014. The amount of the subsidy that the individual would receive was based on this estimate. Some people thought they could get away with receiving higher monthly subsidies if they intentionally estimated a low income for 2014, while many others simply had no idea what their incomes would be. Read more here...

ObamaCare: A Lesson in Poor Lawmaking
- by Michael Greibrok

A good law needs to be clear, concise and open to debate throughout the entire lawmaking process; ObamaCare had none of these things. Since public opinion was opposed to ObamaCare from the start, the law was forced through Congress with no time to debate. Now, it appears to be up to the courts and executive orders to try to fix the many problems with the bill.

The Supreme Court heard oral arguments this week in King v. Burwell, where plaintiffs argued that the IRS illegally offered subsides to individuals that purchased health insurance through federally established exchanges, but King will not be the last time ObamaCare comes before a federal court. Currently there is a case regarding ObamaCare before a federal judge in every circuit in the United States. The number of ObamaCare cases in the federal courts is impressive and is the result of a rushed and poorly constructed law. Some of these cases may eventually find their way to the Supreme Court just like NFIB v. Sebelius,Burwell v. Hobby Lobby and King v. BurwellRead more here...

Hillary Clinton: Costing You Money Since 1993
- by Logan Albright

She hasn’t been in the White House for over a decade, and hasn’t been Secretary of State for more than two years, but that doesn’t stop her from continuing to soak the taxpayers.

Bloomberg is reporting that the task of sorting through the 55,000 emails that Hillary Clinton turned over to the State Department could cost taxpayers millions of dollars. Of course, this cost need not have been incurred if the former Secretary of State had simply followed the rules and conducted government business on a government email account, but then again, rules have never really stood in the way of the Clintons doing whatever they want to do. Read more here...

Tell Your Senators: Support the REDEEM Act
- by Matt Kibbe

As one of our more than 6.9 million FreedomWorks members nationwide, I urge you to contact your senators today and ask them to support the Record Expungement Designed to Enhance Employment (REDEEM) Act, introduced by Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) and Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.), “to provide for the sealing or expungement of records relating to Federal nonviolent criminal offenses, and for other purposes,” and to co-sponsor the bill if they have not already done so. Read more here...

The FCC's New Rules are a Predictable Monstrosity
- by Logan Albright

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) just released its final rules on how they will regulate the internet. You know, the rules they voted to pass several weeks ago. Better late than never, I guess.

To the surprise of no one, the rules comprise a monstrous 400 pages that no one in their right mind would ever read through. I am in my right mind, or at least I like to think I am, but I did take the time to take a look at the executive summary. A couple of things jumped out at me. Read more here...

Big Business Steps Up Pressure to Keep Export-Import Bank Alive
- by Tom Borelli

With the clock ticking to end government funding of the Export-Import Bank, big business is stepping up the pressure to keep the bank alive.

Support of Ex-Im will stop on June 30 unless Congress passes legislation to keep it going.

Knowing it must make Congress act to maintain big business subsidies for their customers overseas, business trade groups and individual companies are swinging into full lobbying panic mode. Read more here...
