Yes,m, you should read the law.
The ACA dores not make your employer provided healthcare benefits taxable as part of your income.
You are either lying or dumber than sh*t. In your case, likely both.
For the very ignorant students in the class:

The value of health care coverage provided by your employer is now reported in Box 12 with Code DD to identify the amount. The amount reported in the box should include both the portion paid by your employer and any amount paid in by you.

Prior to ObamaKare, this wasn't on the W-2.
So why is this information showing up on your form W-2 now? Under ObamaKare, most employers must now report the cost of your health care plan. A few small businesses have received an exemption from reporting under the transitional relief subjectively offered by IRS.

If it's on the W-2, it's already taxable, dumbass. The only thing that's required is the order given to the IRS to apply a tax. I'm thinking that will happen in 2017. It doesn't really matter who wins, as far as this goes. The government has been driven so far into debt, it will have to use any excuse it has to get revenue. With the economic "recovery" putting 5 people into poverty and being supported by the government for every tax payer it generates, the IRS will be given the order to count the health care benefit as taxable income.

Do you ever know anything about what comes out of your mouth?

The new Civil Rights (leaders Racist propaganda comes in many forms, and from many sources. Russell Simmons and Lee Daniels are well-paid Black purveyors of the anti-Black propaganda arts. Daniel’s turns history and truth on its head in The Butler, while Russell Simmons depicts Harriet Tubman as a whore who turns tricks for freedom.

The fact that Simmons chose to make Harriet Tubman a character in a porno reveals much about him, his feelings about black people and his high regard of white people.”

On August 14, 2013, Russell Simmons posted these words on twitter:“Funniest thing I’ve ever seen Harriet tubmans [sic] sex diary.” Those are words guaranteed to catch one’s attention, the way a bomb going off gets attention. Simmons wasn’t lying or joking either. His latest entertainment venture, All Def Digital, had in fact produced something he called The Harriet Tubman Sex Tape. For the worst and most despicable reasons possible, Mr. Simmons chose to commit a character assassination of Harriet Tubman, one of the greatest in the pantheon of black American heroes. By extension he defamed not only Tubman, but all black people and perpetrated the worst slanders used against black women. The fact that Simmons chose to make Harriet Tubman a character in a porno reveals much about him, his feelings about black people and his high regard of white people.

One might conclude that Simmons is nothing more than clueless and ignorant of the history of this country and of his people. Yet his treachery shows something far worse than obvious misogyny, self-hatred and stupidity. This so-called parody existed because Simmons determined that the path to success must go straight through the heart of our heritage and bring down a woman whose actions were above reproach. Simmons obviously believes that his success depends on black people being demeaned and willing to laugh about it.

Why Republicans Are Starting to Love Health Reform

Turns out a lot of Republicans love Obamacare. Or at least, they like coverage for their kids, health-care rebates and a ban on denying coverage for preexisting conditions.

In the old days, they used to say that a conservative is a liberal who has been mugged by reality. When it comes to health insurance, it seems a liberal is a conservative who has been mugged by an illness.

The war in Syria is between the pro-Iranian Assad government (Shi'ite) and an invading Al Qaeda jihad (Suni).
The winner of that war will have chemical weapons facilities and stores.
Who here wants Al Qaeda to have chemical weapons to use in their terrorist attacks here?
Russia will give Assad the most modern anti-ship missile systems they have. These systems are just as good as ours. It is a certainty US ships will be hit by these missiles. It is a certainty US sailors will be killed. It is likely US ships will be sunk. It is certain the aircraft carrier will be the most significant target, and these missiles are capable of sinking it.
Who here wants perhaps thousands of US sailors killed just so Obama can help Al Qaeda acquire chemical weapons?
If we have to become involved, we should kill the existing enemy of the United States. We should help Assad kill the invading Al Qaeda Suni jihad army.
Otherwise, there should be no US involvement.

If Obama had a War, it would look just like Syria.

Well actually, Syria is Obama’s Third Iraq, but who's counting? wink, wink--the MS media? wink, wink.

President Obama has made his entire career off of not being George W. Bush.

During his shockingly fast political rise, he differentiated himself by claiming that he had stood alone against the warmongers who wanted to depose Saddam Hussein (never mind that he wasn't in Congress at the time).

During the 2008 campaign, he claimed that he wouldn't be the kind of president who would enter America into open-ended conflicts without true American interests at stake. Iraq, he said, was the bad war; Afghanistan was the good war.

Well, so much for that. First there was Iraq-Libya, then Iraq-Egypt and now in Iraq-Syria, President Obama has decided to double-down in his support of the al-Qaida-led opposition to the Bashar Assad regime. Never mind that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton called Assad a "reformer." Never mind that Russia and China oppose action against Assad, and that the Obama administration had announced a new era of international cooperation with both countries.
"Syrian President Bashar al-Assad should heed U.S. warnings to neither use nor move chemical or biological weapons, lest he risk crossing a 'red line' and provoke a U.S. military response," Obama said.

And so now America will likely embark on another episode of swashbuckling Democrat-led interventionism in a part of the world in which America has no friends. At least President Bush went to Congress for authorization to use force in Iraq.

President Obama's imperialistic ambitions match his imperial attitude toward the executive office:
He needs no Congressional approval, and so he will seek no Congressional approval.
In Libya, Obama never bothered to ask Congress to sign off on a no-fly zone; instead, he simply put the military in place, then ignored Congressional deadlines for a cut-off.
In Egypt, Obama has avoided declaring the current Egyptian military coup a coup -- and yet Obama is apparently ready to cut off aid regardless, meaning that he wants to avoid any sort of Congressional control over his decision-making.

Now, in Syria, Obama is readying the missiles, despite the fact that just 9 percent of Americans want America to intervene in Syria.

Why you ask? Because for Obama, personal pride is at stake.

Obama once accused George W. Bush of a petty obsession with Saddam Hussein and Iraq.
But at least America had interests in Iraq ranging from preventing terrorism to quashing threats to American oil flow. America has no such interests in Syria.

President Obama is intervening in Syria for one reason: He wants to. He wants to because he set down a "red line" on the use of chemical weapons in Syria; he wants to because he is sick of being seen as a lead-from-behind world ninny; he wants to because he believes that his personal influence trumps the Islamism of the enemies we now fund and arm.

Most of all, President Obama wants to intervene in Syria because we have no interests in Syria.

This has become a running theme with Democrat-led wars. American interests in Yugoslavia were non-existent. American interests in Somalia were non-existent.

For Democrats, the virtuous war is the war in which America has nothing to gain -- except, of course, glory for the occupant of the White House.

President Bush could rightly be accused of wanting to remake the Middle East in the American image.

President Obama wants to make the Middle East over in his own image, unblemished by considerations about America. A new world. A world without American hegemony. And he'll use American force to do it.

And the MS media will still be asking the easy questions and getting tingles up and down their legs. Now, if this WAS Bush, that would be a horse of a different color (pun intended).

This movie was a lie when you read the real story oprah made a bigotted movie in a mask The Butler is a fictionalized account of the life of Eugene Allen, a man who served as a White House butler from the Harry Truman through Ronald Reagan administrations. This story could be interesting on many levels but in the hands of the ham fisted and black hating Daniels the civil rights movement is in the end just a useful backdrop for absolving white people of any guilt.

Daniels does know what makes for an engaging film and it is this skill that makes The Butler so insidious. He cleverly depicts how the lead character, named Cecil Gaines for the purposes of the movie, must escape from the cruelty of Jim Crow era South, where America’s apartheid took shape. Most of the black actors in the film are talented and popular audience favorites. The combination of seeing our experiences validated in an entertaining film guarantees box office success.

“Lee Daniels’ The Butler is a train wreck of a film which leaves a bad taste for anyone even dimly aware of the basic facts of American history.”

It is true to this very day that black people show two faces, or in the case of people like the Gaines character, only one face, not being allowed to be fully human when interacting with white people who have power over them. Having seen lynching and terror, Gaines is fearful for himself and for his son who chooses to be in the forefront of the black freedom movement.

What might have made for an intriguing dynamic is turned into a hodge podge of phony hopefulness about how the “good negro” inspires white people to do the right thing. Movies of course depend on some degree of dramatic license. But it is absurd in the extreme for the Gaines character to literally be serving breakfast to presidents and their top staff people as they discuss what to do in Little Rock, Selma or Birmingham.

Every president in the movie confesses his sins to the magical Cecil and then tries his best to help the Negro. In fact, however much or little any of these presidents did was dependent upon the intensity of the struggle among the masses of people and not by their liking of any domestic worker. Yet the Lee Daniels butler inspires Eisenhower to send troops to integrate Central High School in Little Rock. John F. Kennedy spent most of his term in office looking for ways to placate the Dixiecrats. He and his brother Robert were opposed to the March on Washington and any other actions that might force them to do the right thing. As for the Freedom Riders, Kennedy asked an aide,“Can’t you get your goddamned friends off those buses?” In the end he was forced by the demands made in the streets to finally give a speech in support of a civil rights bill.

80 Republicans in the House already committed to shutting down Government if ACA funding is included.

12 in the Senate have signed a similar pledge.

Yep, Republicans are digging their own grave. Now to avoid a shutdown, the House will need Democrat votes which will mean the bill will need to be more to the liking of Democrats.
