Watch Out for Obamacare's Subsidy Cliff: Earn $1 More in Wages, and You Could Pay $20,000 More for Insurance

On Tuesday, the Congressional Budget Office released a new study finding that the Affordable Care Act, aka Obamacare, will cause "a decline in the number of full-time-equivalent workers of about 2.0 million in 2017, rising to about 2.5 million in 2024."
Obamacare

That doesn't mean that Obamacare will cause 2.5 million employees to be laid off, but rather that the law will encourage the equivalent of 2.5 million full-time workers to drop out of the workforce. Here's how it will work (or rather, discourage work): Obamacare offers Medicaid to people earning up to 138 percent of the federal poverty line in states that opted into the program, and it provides subsidies to people earning above that amount, up to 400 percent of the federal poverty line. As your income increases, the subsidy decreases.

CBO explains that "the phaseout effectively raises people’s marginal tax rates (the tax rates applying to their last dollar of income), thus discouraging work."

For some people, CBO notes, the incentive to reduce their hours or quit their jobs will be especially strong: "People whose income exceeds 400 percent of the FPL are ineligible for premium subsidies, and for some people those subsidies will drop abruptly to zero when income crosses that threshold."

The Obamacare subsidy cliff is so steep that if you earn just $1 above the threshold, you could end up paying anywhere from a few thousand dollars to $20,000 more for insurance, depending on your age.

Take the case of a couple of 55-year-olds living in St. Croix County, Wisconsin, where the median household income is a little over $68,000.

"On Friday, the Labor Department reported that the economy added just 113k jobs in January. Economists had expected a gain of 180,000 after a very weak report in December. The two months are both far below employment growth trends last year. The unemployment rate was down a tick to 6.6%."

obama the fake president can't do anything right.

...we all could care less. obama is the new Hitler 2.0, and will act in a similar fashion in the end. At least the other countries are not blind like you are with him. They know EXACTLY who he is and what he stands for: fascism and communism and pain.

March can't get here soon enough. I hope it comes out in March as Zullo said, and not April or May. But whatever happens it will blow obama away and the rest of the world. obama will be seen to be the traitor of all traitors in the end. The resultant Constitutional crises will be incredible. Perfect timing for the midterms.

Unemployment falls to five-year low on weak jobs report...

Teen Rate Hits 21%...

When Will Obama Start Caring? SHOCK: Almost One in Four 26 year-olds still live with parents!

obama is the only president in history that the more people are OUT of jobs he counts it as MORE people that have jobs.

....what do you expect from a guy that doesn't have even one shred of evidence that says who he is. Not one. A man with 6 different names,multiple birth places, Nobody saw him in college, was not in the yearbook, no friends from college, no SS#, fails e-verify, his own book says he was born in Kenya, bows to the muslims, supports Al-Qaida, and everything else. A fake president that has now created a monster Constitutional crises for this country. Good luck with that.

Which way will impeachment go? Because he is a complete fraud? or on some Constitutional issue so that the entire world doesn't sue us for what he has done as a fake president. That is what props him up now.

The rest of the world knows who obama is while we deny knowing anything while he shreds our laws, and ruins this country.

It is just a matter of time before he is impeached. March can't get here soon enough.

****Obama birth certificate case to go before federal grand jury?, Doug Vogt’s affidavit submitted to US Attorneys by federal judges, Attorney Montgomery Blair Sibley explains, Forgeries require Obama explanation

Obama birth certificate case to go before federal grand jury?, Doug Vogt’s affidavit submitted to US Attorneys by federal judges, Attorney Montgomery Blair Sibley explains, Forgeries require Obama explanation

“Why has Obama, since taking the White House, used Justice Department Attorneys, at taxpayer expense, to avoid presenting a legitimate birth certificate and college records?”…Citizen Wells

“Khalid Al-Mansour was “raising money” for Obama.”
“Khalid Al-Mansour was trying to help Obama get into Harvard Law School.”…Percy Sutton

“Barack Obama, show me the college loans.”…Citizen Wells





From Attorney Montgomery Blair Sibley.

“Mr. Obama, Your House of Cards May Be Tumbling Down”
“In my last post I related that 175 federal judges had received copies of Doug Vogt’s affidavit which forensically established probable cause to believe that Barack Hussein Obama’s certificates of live birth are forgeries. The cover letter accompanying the affidavit asked each Judge to refer the evidence contained in Doug’s 95 page public affidavit – and 75 page sealed affidavit – to a Grand Jury to investigate.”

“In fact three (3) federal judges have acknowledge receipt of Doug’s Affidavit. Two of them have forwarded the affidavit to their respective United States Attorneys. The third wrote back stating:“I was very impressed by the letter and attachments you sent to me. I do not dismiss the allegations you make as untrue.” The letter continued with the commitment to submit Doug’s affidavit to the Grand Jury for their consideration. So like a modern-day Diogenes, perhaps we have found one honest federal district court judge.”

“Let me posit what will happen next. Doug and I – a former criminal prosecutor with extensive experience presenting evidence to a grand jury and securing indictments – will be invited to appear before the Grand Jury. Doug to detail the forensic evidence contained in his affidavit; Me to explain the legal options available to the Grand Jury to follow up on the evidence that Doug presents them. Operating outside the control of the United States Attorney’s office and with the support of the federal judge and the United States Marshal’s Service, a dozen federal Grand Jury subpoenas will be issued and served by the Marshal’s Service nationwide. The originals of Obama’s birth records from Hawaii, college transcripts from the three colleges he attended, along with his Social Security and Selective Service records would all be compelled to be produced to this Eric Holder-free Grand Jury. Additionally, the players in the Obama Birth Certificate pageant would all be called to testify as to their roles: Remember, there is no Fifth Amendment privilege to refuse to answer a question put to a witness by a Grand Jury.”
