OK! Justify this!!!!!
This is an image of a sales receipt from Cabela's, a popular sporting goods store with almost 50 locations throughout the US.

The 2.3% Medical Excise Tax that began on January 1st is supposed to be "hidden" from the consumer, but it's been brought to the public's attention
by hunting and fishing store
Cabela's who have refused to hide it and are showing it as a separate line item tax on their receipts, the email states.
I did some research and found directly from the IRS's website information that PROVES this to be true and an accurate portrayal of something hidden in
Obamacare that I was not aware of! Now being skeptical of this I went to the IRS website and found this!
Q1. What is the medical device excise tax?
A1. Section 4191 of the Internal Revenue Code imposes an excise tax on the sale of certain medical devices by the manufacturer or importer of the device.
Q2. When does the tax go into effect?
A2. The tax applies to sales of taxable medical devices after Dec. 31, 2012.
Q3. How much is the tax?
A3. The tax is 2.3 percent of the sale price of the taxable medical device. See Chapter 5 of IRS Publication 510, Excise Taxes, and Notice 2012-77 for additional information on the determination of sale price. Chapter Five tions/p510/ch05.html
So being more curious I clicked on "Chapter 5
Of IRS Publication 510."

And what do I find under "MEDICAL DEVICES" under "MANUFACTURERS TAXES"?

The following discussion of manufacturers taxes

Applies to the tax on:

Sport fishing equipment;

Fishing rods and fishing poles;

Electric outboard motors;

Fishing tackle boxes;

Bows, quivers, broadheads, and points;

Arrow shafts;


Taxable tires;

Gas guzzler automobiles; and


I NEVER KNEW THAT A TIRE IS A MEDICAL DEVICE. I think we have definitely been fooled, if we believe that the Affordable Care Act is all about health care. It Truly does appear to be nothing more than a bill
laden with a whole lot of taxes that we the people have yet to be aware of.

Please pass this on. I am still incredulous that this can go on. Where is our press? I guess its just like Nancy Pelosi said

We have to pass it to see what is in it .What is next? What else is there we do not know about? I am sick to death about our government
God help us bring this nation back to a land of freedom, and to have the courage and commitment to do so.
Tip of the iceberg!! Also don't forget the 3.8% tax on unearned income which includes profit from sale of homes, condos etc.

And the truth just keeps on spilling out all over this monstrosity of a govt fraud.

Outboard motor, really???? I guess if you're out in the wild and suddenly need a scalpel to perform emergency surgery, your boat's motor will be a trusty stand in...

Amazing doesn't even begin to cover the degree of fraud and deception in this govt!
