Its highway robbery!
City hacks now have to shell out 6 cents per fare so they can pay for tutorials on ObamaCare, The Post has learned.
Nobodys happy about it, said Charbel Sfeir, a yellow-cab driver since 1984. Its not fair. The moneys going to go to paperwork for ObamaCare. I dont need to pay them do to paperwork.
The hack tax, mandated by the city Taxi and Limousine Commission, went into effect Oct. 1 and requires that drivers pay for disability insurance and health-care navigation services.
The TLC has placed the Taxi Workers Alliance, a drivers union, in charge of administering the fund, and a final contract is being hammered out.
This is a good thing, said Bhairavi Desai, executive director of the TWA. This is going to give services to a population thats been exploited.(continued)

HAHAHAHHA....and just WAIT til the REAL ESTATE SALES TAX kicks in to pay for Obamacare!!
I don't care about the cost. I value the illegality!
Aren’t there about 20 some odd taxes under ObamaCare?
Who did they vote for?
Hope and Change.
Zero’s pappy wrote a paper on the possibility of taxing people at 100%.
Crippling taxes are just another dream from his Marxist (putative) Dad.
Raise it to a buck a fare, why fool around?
The ACA Real Estate Tax is the subject of many misleading emails. Not to defend it, but few will be affected and it will not have any effect on the market except for the most expensive homes. (west coast? justice.....)
for example, 1 clause -
For married filers the first $500,000 in gain from the sale of a primary residence is not subject to the 3.8 percent Medicare tax, even if the taxpayers have a modified adjusted gross income greater than $250,000.
Not many people are gaining $1/2 million from their home sales anymore.
Most of them are Pakistani Muslim filth and their cabs all stink like curry.
Geeze. Maybe NOW would be a good time to re release that Obama 2016 movie in my and not when they’re in a star struck love gets mood
My went for Reagan in 1980
I just realized I have a huge smile on my face as I read this.
The biggest wealth takeover in the history of this country.
Tough! They all voted for the One. They deserve it.
It doesn;tmatter if only ONE persn is affected....WHY IS THERE A SALES TAX FOR OBAMACARE!!! PLUS it’s NOT just on REAL ESTATE but on UNEARNED INCOME I THINK!! That can EASILY be UPPED to a LOT of PEOPLE PAYING THAT TAX!! Look at who paid INCOME TAX WHEN IT STARTED......VERY FEW!!!
...now their hoping the change doesn’t kill them
Aw, that’s a shame. Here in cheap little old Grand Rapids it costs something like $3.75 just to get inside the cab when it arrives (however long that takes).
