    CO-OP FLOP: The Biggest Obamacare Disaster You’ve Never Heard About

    [​IMG]
    MARK TAPSCOTT




    It’s an Obamacare story with every imaginable outrage — blatant conflicts of interest, millions of tax dollars going to political cronies, thousands of Americans left without health insurance, lavish pay for incompetent executives, federal funds diverted illegally, multiple congressional investigations, insider trading convictions and big decisions made behind closed doors.

    Tragically, there is even a child abuser. But search the New York Times web site for “Obamacare co-ops” and nothing comes up. Just three entries appear for the same search on the Washington Post web site.

    Not so, Richard Pollock of the Daily Caller News Foundation’s Investigative Group. Pollock has filed dozens of stories about the Obamacare co-ops since 23 of the tax-funded groups were created in 2011 at a cost of $2 billion. President Obama promised the co-ops would help lower medical costs by competing with profit-driven private companies.

    Seven of the co-ops have closed. A recent report by the Department of Health and Human Services Inspector General said the rest of the co-ops are in deep financial trouble and more are expected to close.


    None of these dismal developments come as a surprise to those following Pollock’s byline for the past four years. Here are a dozen of his most significant co-op stories, some of which were reported when he worked for the Washington Examiner.

    They pay nothing and have teams of lawyers working the loopholes.

    sorry, i gotta stop using objective data :jj:



    Buried inside a Congressional Budget Office report this week was this nugget: when it comes to individual income taxes, the top 40 percent of wage earners in America pay 106 percent of the taxes. The bottom 40 percent...pay negative 9 percent.

    You read that right. One group is paying more than 100 percent of individual income taxes, the other is paying less than zero.

    It's right there in Table 3 on page 13 of the report. The numbers are based on 2010 IRS and Census Bureau figures.

    http://www.cnbc.com/2013/12/11/the-rich-do-not-pay-the-most-taxes-they-pay-all-the-taxes.html



    Top 2.4% pay 50% of total taxes


    In 2013, according to our analysis of preliminary IRS data, people with adjusted gross incomes above $250,000 paid nearly half (48.9%) of all individual income taxes, though they accounted for only 2.4% of all returns filed.

    better luck next time, old loser

    Rich people already had health insurance, same with the upper middle class. Medicaid existed to give the poor free healthcare already. All obamacare did was force the lower middle class that got by without insurance to pay the bills for the bottom feeders.

    Obamacare is just another guise to screw the middle class.

    I know there is money taken out of my checks every week.
    I didn't think you believed the LIBERAL media. Especially when the letters NBC were involved.

    The bottom (feeders) get earned income tax credit check for a few thousand dollars every year after paying a few hundred in taxes. That's how they pay negative tax.

    Every single tax dollar is taken from someone who earned that dollar and spent to buy something for someone who did not earn that dollar.

    To think, much less utter or type, that a tax dollar could "finance the wealthy" shows an incomprensible misunderstanding of what's actually taking place in OUR country.

    How much of what I work for belongs, not to my wife or children, but to you?

    All of what you earn should go to those too lazy or stupid to "help" themselves. Didn't the President tell you that you didn't build your business? Shame on for assuming that fruits of your labor should go to you and your family as opposed to the animals that burned Baltimore.
