Bob Adelman of The New American highlighted ATR’s prediction of the new IRS form necessary for Obamacare: "‘Form OBMA’ Added to Tax Forms for 2014?”

“The added responsibility of accounting for ObamaCare’s 47 mandates that will roll out over the next two years will so overload the IRS’ information technology as possibly to cause some serious reflection and rethinking about government-run healthcare. As Ryan Ellis, ATR’s tax policy director, noted last month:

‘This tax season’s Keystone Kops buffoonery has made it abundantly clear that the IRS is in no position to take on even a small number of these 47 enforcement mechanisms.’”


The Antioch Herald published ATR’s press release on the worst Obamacare tax hikes: “Obamacare’s Tax Hike Train Wreck”

 “Asked about Senator Max Baucus’s (D-Mont.) recent “train wreck” comments, President Obama said, “A huge chunk of it [Obamacare] has already been implemented.” Unmentioned was the wave of destructive Obamacare tax increases that will begin to hit Americans during the next tax filing season and beyond.”


Paul Kersey of the Illinois Review highlighted one of these Obamacare taxes which will hurt union workers the most: Buyer’s remorse: “ObamaCare tax will slam union workers”

 “Obamacare Tax on Union Member and Early Retiree Health Insurance Plans: Obamacare imposes a new 40 percent excise tax on high cost or “Cadillac” health insurance plans, effective in 2018. This tax increase will most directly affect union families and early retirees, who are likely to be covered by such plans. This Obamacare tax will be levied on insurance policies whose premiums exceed $10,200 for an individual and $27,500 for a family. Middle class union members tend to be covered by such plans in states like Ohio, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, and Michigan.”


The Wall Street Journal contained a column co-authored by David B. Rivkin Jr. And Lee A. Casey Which focused on the deceit and scandal of the IRS:

“The IRS and the Drive to Stop Free Speech”

“The unfolding IRS scandal is a symptom, not the disease. For decades, campaign-finance reform zealots have sought to limit core political speech through spending limits and disclosure requirements. More recently, they have claimed that it is wrong and dangerous for tax-exempt entities to engage in political speech.”
