Trump Tax Cuts Just Took A Major Swipe At Obama Few Saw Coming

Trump Tax Cuts Just Took A Major Swipe At Obama Few Saw Coming

President Donald Trump said Wednesday that the GOP-led tax reform bill “essentially” repeals the controversial 2010 health care law pushed for and signed into law by then-President Barack Obama.

Trump’s comments on the matter came hours after Senate Republicans successfully passed the final version of the tax reform legislation in the upper chamber of Congress.

Praising the bill during a Cabinet meeting later in the day, the president told reporters that the bill does what Senate Republicans failed to due earlier this year — repeal Obamacare.

“When the individual mandate is being repealed, that means Obamacare is being repealed,” Trump said. “So in this bill, not only do we have massive tax cuts and tax reform, we have essentially repealed Obamacare and we’ll come up with something that will be much better.”

Trump was referring to a provision of the legislation that repeals the individual mandate, one of the most criticized aspects of Obamacare.

The mandate forces Americans to either prove that they have health care, or else pay a fine.

Trump once again reiterated that “Obamacare has been repealed in this bill.” But the president indicated he did not want emphasize this point up until now so that the “fake news media” wouldn’t talk about it.

“We didn’t want to bring it up,” he said. “I told people specifically, ‘Be quiet with the fake news media because I don’t want them talking too much about it’ because I didn’t know how people would … but now that it’s approved I can say — The individual mandate on health care where you had to pay not to have insurance … has been repealed.”

The president was correct in that the tax reform bill gets rid of the individual mandate, but as pointed out by The Hill, Obamacare is not entirely repealed. The individual marketplaces will stay in place, as will Medicaid expansion and other aspects of the Affordable Care Act.

Congressional Republicans attempted to repeal Obamacare earlier this year, and in the House, they were successful. The bill did not get past the Senate, though. GOP Sens. John McCain of Arizona, Lisa Murkowski of Alaska and Susan Collins of Maine all opposed the measure.

But early Wednesday, Republicans gained a major legislative win, as tax reform passed in the upper chamber with 51 votes.

Later in the day, the House — which had to re-vote on the measure due to a technicality — also passed the legislation, thus finally sending the bill to Trump’s desk.

Following Senate passage of the legislation, Trump took to Twitter to praise the bill, as well as Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.

“I could have not asked for a better or more talented partner,” Trump said of McConnell. “Our team will go onto many more VICTORIES!”

CONGRESSMAN FILES ONE SENTENCE BILL TO REPEAL ‘OBAMACARE’

By Brandon Morse

Mar 27, 2017

Rep Mo Brooks, a Republican from the 5th Congressional District in Alabama, has filed a bill simply titled the “Obamacare Repeal Act,” and it contains just one sentence.

The bill simply reads:

    “Effective as of December 31, 2017, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (Public Law 111–148) is repealed, and the provisions of law amended or repealed by such Act are restored or revived as if such Act had not been enacted.”

No really. That’s it. You can see for yourself below.

BREAKING: Obama Tax Audit Turns Up MILLIONS In Offshore Accounts Stolen From Taxpayers

Liberals are always on Donald Trump’s case about his tax returns. They don’t seem to get that our president doesn’t feel the need to rush to get his tax returns out because he has nothing to hide. Making them squirm and speculate is just fun. If I were Trump I’d release my tax returns promptly…on January 21st, 2025.

That’s not the case, however with former president Barry Soetoro. Using the alias he has denied is his many times, Obama was just nabbed with more than $400 million in taxpayer money sitting in accounts in the Cayman Islands, Ireland and Caledonia. The deposits, all made directly from the national treasury, are listed as “royalty payments” for Obamacare.

Few people know it, but when the liberal congress of 2010 passed the Obamacare bill without reading it, a percentage of the proceeds was automatically routed to the bill’s author, Barack Obama, to cover “expenses and royalties associated with naming the bill.” It wasn’t until the Affordable Care Act came out later that Obamacare was officially renamed and the royalties stopped, but not be3fore the Obama family pocketed $411 million. Of that, it appears that $400 million was transferred discreetly to accounts offshore to Barry Soetoro, LLC, a legal entity operating out of three foreign countries.

By transferring his money there, Obama has avoided paying more than $170 million in taxes that could have gone towards funding all of the free stuff he gave to the inner city folks so they’d re-elect him in 2012. Instead he ran up a deficit higher than any president in history and quadrupled our debt.

If Trump or any honest American companies and businessmen did what Obama did they’d be under federal investigation. Now that Obama isn’t in the White House and there’s nobody around to shield him, he can certainly be investigated and charged for these serious crimes.
