I’m sure you realize that I will be updating the information on the new tax laws soon. I haven’t decided if I will rewrite the 9 blogs that covered the House and Senate version or just “X” off the parts that didn’t make it to the signed version. (I’m leaning towards the latter- with only two or three posts to cover the individual and business tax provisions.)
I’m sure you’ve heard that the Senate version of the (creatively named) Tax Cuts and Jobs Act is now going to attack PPACA (Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act), affectionately (sic) known as Obamacare. But, if you don’t truly understand the intracacies of the bill, it will be difficult to discern how NOT collecting the tax penalty on those who don’t enroll in a health care plan can be used to reduce the deficit incurred by the behemoth of a bill. (Sorry for all those negatives- but that’s the true concept.)
It starts. Today is the beginning of open season. Time to choose our health care plan. Or, if you are like me and entitled to Medicare, today is the day to decide to ADD to the mandated service. Because years ago, the government cut Medicare provisions. Now, we need to choose a drug plan and a Medicare Advantage plan to cover all those things that aren’t covered. Or pay through the nose.
Today, I ‘ll discuss some of the upcoming changes to PPACA (Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, aka Obamacare) that are coming. Yes, I’ve brought some of them up– and because there’s a lot of information, I will continue this discussion tomorrow, too.
Here we go again. Not only, as I’ve reported before, has TheDonald shortened the open season for PPACA (Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, aka Obamacare), but he and his minions have been hard at work to prove that it is failing. By making it fail- or at least continually trying to kill it.
More finagling with Obamacare. TheDonald keeps screwing with the insurance companies so that PPACA will die. And, since he is clearly the smartest person in the world (do you think he drinks Dos Equis?)- NOT, he is positive that the world will believe that he didn’t kill it, but it died a natural death. (Hmm. Must be like the Nazis and KKK- that had a torch march on Friday night, threatened the Jews of Charlottesville (without guns while they marched, with guns by the only synagogue in Charlottesvile), and employed vehicular manslaughter (with 19 others maimed and hurt)- were the ones endangered and justified in their actions.)
