Behold: The ObamaCARE medical excise tax that began with 2013

obamacare-insertIt’s 2013 so it’s the year of the tax. Nevermind the weak Republicans caving on the fiscal cliff ‘negotiations’ and raising taxes on 77.1% of American households, there’s still the ObamaCARE taxes to deal with this year that started today. Here’s one example, the ObamaCARE medical excise tax:


Happy New Year or something.

    I also felt the pain yesterday when I purchased a carhart vest at cabelas. I told my liberal brother about it and he just shrugged it off. When are people going to wake up? Can you say “Agenda 21″?

      Incorrect. Cabela’s, had just confirmed they had a 1 day internal glitch within their system. The “Medical Excise Tax” should have not been charged. A second source from Cabela’s, indicated they already have started refunding the “Medical Excise Tax”.

        So they had an error that affected 1000′s of people’s receipt’s. That does just happen. Why would a hunting and outdoors place ACCIDENTLY put a medical excise tax???

    Why is this tax being charged at Cabela’s

    it was supposedly a mistake at ONE store (according to Cabela’s online assistance) .. you can get a refund if you were charged (according to Cabela’s online assistance)

    CABELA’s States they had a glitch in their system. NO MEDICAL EXCISE TAX to be collected. If you have a receipt, call Cabela’s Cu8stomer Service Department and they have instructions to credit you instantly or by check. They were in trouble once before for charging tax on food items.

      Yes, your right. It was a glitch

      Check out Snopes. It’s true.

    Why is a HUNTING store selling Medical Devises????

    • http://twitter.com/ccass357 ccass357

      it does not say ‘medical device’… it says medical ‘excise tax’.. the cost to cover employee health insurance. SCOTUS ruled it was a tax.. so, here ya go

        Sorry Charlie, but that tax is just on Medical devices and nothing else. Don’t lie, that’s not nice.

  • nonrightwingy

    This is a mistake by Cabela’s. Instead of freaking out and making up crap, I spoke with their customer service online rep within the last 30 minutes and their corporate team is aware of this issue. So you guys will have to come up with some other conspiracy theory for today.

      Your right. Avoid this website

      It is illegal to charge a “tax” and not remit it to the taxation authorities. They can charge a “medical surcharge” but then the sales tax must be charged on this as well. Or they can increase prices. Companies always pass through cost increases; to think otherwise is to be simply naive.

    • Joe

      I also called cabelas and I know it was an error,

    So now we wonder, is this the new trend for 2013? Taxing consumers in error? We shall see!

    http://www.irs.gov/uac/Medical-Device-Excise-Tax:-Frequently-Asked-Questions. This tax can be passed on to consumers. I know it was a glitch and you are subject to the tax if you buy goods defined by the above

    Ok so Cabela’s made a mistake but my question is why would Cabela’s even program a “medical excise tax” into their system? Didn’t know Cabela’s sold “medical equipment”!

    • Chris

      According to what I read, Cabela’s will have this because they sell first aid kits. It is sad to see this national tax coming out that people are so stupid to have asked for.

      • http://www.facebook.com/okparrotthead Lisa Hampton Davis

        but if you read the actual tax proposal on the irs website, first aid kits are not even taxed

  • Zombee

    The fiscal cliff B.S was just a Demoncrat smoke screen perpetrated by Führer Obama and the Demoncrat clowns in the Congress. The Obamacare-tax is the real tax increase on the middle-class. Everybody’s going to feel the wrath of this tax. Elections have consequences. A black market and smuggling of medical supplies will grow and become quit lucrative here in Amerika. .

      At least now it isn’t us Europeans making the economy worse. We may have problems, but look what you guys managed to fuck up again.

    “2.3 percent tax on medical devices” Software glitch. Google it. It’s on Snopes.
    No one is going to pay a tax on non medical devices. Not sure what Cabelas sells that would need this tax though. Anyone actually read the list of medical devices? What would Cabelas sell that would fall under it?

  • http://www.facebook.com/krysia.suttles Krysia Suttles

    If you scroll the very bottom of that Snopes story … it says they had a computer glitch that applied that to everyone. You are told to contact the customer service department and they will help correct it!

    • delco72

      This is just one instance. How many more “glitches” are there, and what about the people who don’t even notice it?

  • http://www.facebook.com/noel.genung Noel C Genung

    read it here fro the IRS publication http://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/p510.pdf go to chapter 5. it lists sport fishing equipment, coal and many other non medical items that will now be taxed,

    Here is a lovely thought to think on! If Obama and his entire GANG are removed from office, all of his actions will be reversed because he was not legally qualified to ever be in the White House! This will stop this OBAMACARE insanity and many other problems! Obama is an imposter and states his father is a Kenyan… Not an American Citizen ever! Therefore he is illegally in office! Congress must arrest him on charges of treason or they are complicit in his actions! If Congress does not act, the military must step in, declare Martial law, arrest the leaders and administer our government, until we can quickly hold proper elections and replace the guilty parties! Our entire Constitution, Way of Life and Nation is in grave danger! Congress still has time to arrest Obama and charge he and his gang with treason, with a conspiracy to topple our government! There are multiple legitimate reasons to do this. We must do something! OMG! Obama Must Go! Otherwise, we Christians will be toast!
