Obamacare? IRS Requirements? For us Laymen American's, just what the hell is in that document, called "Obamacare"?

Medical Excise Tax on Retail Receipts
This is an image of a sales receipt from Cabela's,
a popular sporting goods store.

The 2.3% Medical Excise Tax that began on January

1st is supposed to be "hidden" from the consumer,

but it's been brought to the public's attention by

hunting and fishing store Cabela's who have refused

to hide it and are showing it as a separate line

item tax on their receipts, the email states.

I did some research and found directly from the IRS's

website information that PROVES this to be true and

an accurate portrayal of something hidden in

Obamacare that I was not aware of!

Now being sceptical of this I went to the

IRS website and found this!

What is the medical device excise tax?

A1. Section 4191 of the Internal Revenue Code

imposes an excise tax on the sale of certain medical

devices by the manufacturer or importer of the device.

Q2. When does the tax go into effect?

A2. The tax applies to sales of taxable

medical devices after Dec. 31, 2012.

Q3. How much is the tax?

A3. The tax is 2.3 percent of the sale price

of the taxable medical device. See Chapter 5 of IRS

Publication 510, Excise Taxes, and Notice 2012-77 for

additional information on the determination of sale

price. Chapter Five

So being more curious I clicked on "Chapter 5

of IRS Publication 510."

And what do I find under "MEDICAL DEVICES" under


The following discussion of manufacturers taxes

applies to the tax on:

Sport fishing equipment;

Fishing rods and fishing poles;

Electric outboard motors;

Fishing tackle boxes;

Bows, quivers, broadheads, and points;

Arrow shafts;


Taxable tires;

Gas guzzler automobiles; and


I think we

have definitely been fooled, if we believe that the

Affordable Care Act is all about health care. It

truly does appear to be nothing more than a bill

laden with a whole lot of taxes that we the people

have yet to be aware of.


was updated for 2013 changes in the tax law. The new software kicked in on January 1 and mistakenly began applying the Medical Excise Tax. Cabela's caught the mistake that day and quit charging the tax. Here's a link to an article with further info.

and it is coming as soon as most of the people get a backbone and stand up for their rights and quit paying for all these ungodly taxes which pay for BO's, Michelle's and Liberal Democrats and Republicans in Congress and in State Governments' expenses and trips that most of us cannot have or make because of going deeper in the hole financially! Now, I don't know if every state does this, but some are charging taxes on the Blue Book cost of a car, no matter how much is paid for it! The greedy County by Liberal Dems...have increased the value of my home so they can charge more RE Taxes and mine have increased $300.00 this year on top of the $2,000 plus I now pay yearly! My house isn't worth in this economy what they say it is and will not sell unless God steps in and brings me a buyer who will pay the price they say my home is worth now! GREED and SELFISHNESS is the name of the game in the USA and getting worse, so a storm is brewing and will become a huge tornado sooner than we might think! May God have mercy and help us to get out from under these ungodly, evil leaders, who live high off the Gov't trough than we the poorer and working people are having to do! Amen! angel Ma
