Posted on 02/11/2014 8:47:02 AM PST by ColdOne
How will the feds know what employers were thinking when hiring and firing? Simple. Firms will be required to certify to the IRS under penalty of perjury that ObamaCare was not a motivating factor in their staffing decisions. To avoid ObamaCare costs you must swear that you are not trying to avoid ObamaCare costs. You can duck the law, but only if you promise not to say so.

This is what “focused like a laser creating jobs” looks like.
The ONLY way to end the wave of tryanny by the irs is to eliminate it completely.
Firms will be required to certify to the IRS under penalty of perjury
To avoid ObamaCare costs you must swear that you are not trying to avoid ObamaCare costs....?
and Obama lies to us each time he opens his mouth?...LMAO!
If you're a business owner, why would you want to piss-off the IRS?
Baraq never came clean on how it was that the GM dealerships owned by GOP donors were closed.
Barry never came clean on how it was New York City came to own a retired space shuttle when mission control and the Johnson Space Center was in Texas.
This is not the America where I grew up.
Some company with some cojones out there needs to fire a bunch of people, say openly “Yes, it was because of Obamacare”, and then file a 14th. Amendment suit when they do not get their waiver.
Barack keeps avoiding compliance with his own law by unconstitutionally kicking the can down the street until AFTER each election cycle.
Obama lied about Obamacare, so why can’t businesses?
I thought Keith Ellison and his Democrat pals were proud of Obamacare getting those people out of nasty “job lock” to pursue their hobbies.
Employers claiming Obamacare as the reason for layoff should be getting an award for increasing “freedom” as Chuck Schumer claimed on Sunday TV.
Pinky promise or what?
How could ObamaCare that not be a genuine and legal consideration ???
“penalty of perjury”?? Like the IRS is now a court?!
Barry: Lawlessness begets lawlessness.
A time is fast approaching when people will no longer fear you.
Since when is it the reponsibility of the feds how you manage your business.
Are they some sort of de facto HR department for every small business in the country?
WHERE IN THE F#CK ARE THE REPUBLICANS???
How can they possibly enforce this? It’s not part of the law passed by congress... /s
If I FEEL that avoiding Obamacare costs was not a factor in my decision to fire anybody, that should be good enough for the feral government.
and where is neighbor’s Obama shrine ???
I agree, but it isn't going anywhere. Too many in this country like having the government jackboot on their necks.
Probably 20 years ago my SIL was on some kind of state board. The subject of unemployment came up. My SIL said something to the effect that policies should encourage people to work, not discourage them.
A black woman on the board told her off. Said work was not a part of the black culture and that my SIL should show more sensitivity to cultures other than her own.
This was 20 years ago.
Truth is the first thing that is not allowed in a Marxist State. It is the Big Lie-—where “Up is Down” and “Sodomy is a Virtue”.
Truth is Truth is Truth.....give it up and tell little children, Up is Down,-—guess what? They will believe it when they are adults.
Cognitive Dissonance—being lied to in childhood-—like the public schools do since they censor Christian Ethics-—removes “thinking” (Classical Education/Bible) and destroys the ability to understand Good and Evil. People with no character will do as the government COMMANDS. It devolves into irrational fascism.
As Socrates stated: Wisdom is being able to discern Good and Evil.
Our children are being programmed now into believing Evil is Good and Good is Evil-—with the Common Core/Race to the Top/Goals 2000 curricula-—actually ALL curricula which is laced with the programming of Wundtian Psychology which removes God/Truth from children-—and habituates the Marxist “worldview” so Truth will never matter even when they are adults.
They will believe whatever irrational cr(p they are fed by the State. They are conditioned to do so....and it is habituated in their “education” institutions.
The contempt for small business was aptly summarized by Hillary Clinton back in 1993, when she was pushing her plan to nationalize health care. Told that her proposals would devastate small companies, she replied: I cant be responsible for every undercapitalized small business in America.
Eliminate the IRS or the tyranny?
In fact - they want to be. That's one of the reasons the Left hates small business so much - they don't have fully staffed arms of the Federal Government controlling all employee affairs like large firms do.
WHERE IN THE F#CK ARE THE REPUBLICANS???
Keeping quiet as mice while they count their insurance company donations.

What is the legal justification for such a certification?
The IRS have never followed the 5th Amendment. You are required by law to present a signed 1040 which will be used against you in a court of law.

Nanny goat administration
King Obama does not have constitutional authority to declare normal behavior a crime.
IRS AND Homeland Security AND TSA AND ATF.
When this obozo government keeps peeing in our faces and telling us its just rain, the last thing we should do is open your mouths.
Yup. And our so-called courts backed that up. People have gone to prison for claiming that right.
“WHERE IN THE F#CK ARE THE REPUBLICANS??? “
Not part of the executive branch.
Because the government is allowed to lie to you but you cannot lie to the government.
It is an outrage that businesses who respond to the IRS WRT employment practices--could be charged w/ perjury.
AS USUAL, WHAT HE DOES IS ALWAYS THE EXACT OPPOSITE OF WHAT HE SAYS His SOTU speech urged Congress to give America a raise.....now it turns out America's getting a $70 billion annual "pay cut," courtesy of Obamacare.
Too bad for wage-earners---yet, the parasitic Obamas live in the lap of luxury, sucking off the backs of struggling Americans.
The Obamas are itinerant, luxury-loving parasites, living high, greedily sucking at the public teat......(wire-transferring a bundle offshore for a cushy retirement and to finance Mrs O's political ambitions?).
NRO tallied what taxpayers are paying for M/M O to live large on the taxpayers' dime: a grand total of $1.4 billion per year:
Air Force One ($181,757 per hour), executive chef ($100,000 per year), three full-time White House calligraphers ($277,050 per year for the trio), chief of staff to the presidents dog ($102,000 per year), Ohaha's royal motorcade ($2.2 million). $100 million alone for the African apology tour.
$1.4 BILLION is the current annual cost of the White House just in household expenses, not including US policy operations for which the WH exists-- administered by some 900 parasites--- policy staff recruited by Ohaha.
There's the $100 million trip to Africa not including the foreign aid billions O handed out to these oil-rich satraps. There's serial Ohaha vacations costing taxpayers millions---- (the low estimate Hawaii vacays is $4 million each, but is probably five times that); the pricey Martha's Vineyard stays; Mrs O's costly trip to elite Marbella w/ an entourage of 30.
Mrs O's $3900 PER NIGHT in Ireland PLUS 30 more rooms for her entourage.
Ireland's Grace Kelly hotel suite.
TAXPAYERS SUFFERED RUINOUS HEALTHCARE CANCELLATIONS--BUT THEY PAY $7 MILLION FOR THE OBAMAS HEALTHCARE---NRO found the first familys yearly health-care costs Americans $7 million; the reason why only Boobamba himself was "enrolled" last month --and not his family.
Mrs O wore her pricey diamond bangles (bought on a govt salary?) at a DNC fund-raiser, attended by "tolerant and compassionate" Dems....raised big bucks to keep Mr O in office so he could work for "the poor." Her diamond Gothic cuff priced at $15,350 set with 2.17 carats in diamonds and the Quatrefoil bracelet at $11,800 set with 1.73 carats in diamonds. (Excerpt) Read more at houston.culturemap.com.
Mrs O wowed all the "tolerant and compassionate" Dems who hate the rich and support endless tax-paid programs "for the poor."
Mrs O has 24 assistants at her beck and call. Her
wardrobe, nails and hair pieces subsidized w/ tax dollars
of struggling Americans.
boehner and cantor and ryan are all rolling over on their backs to pass a "clean" debt ceiling now that their surrender on immigration has failed.
They let their paymasters down on cheap labor and so they want to make it up w/ more cheap money.
Companies that can afford to do so will just gradually phase out their USA based operations and escape to a less oppressive country.
Just like Mag-Pul has decided to Escape From Colorado.
