Subject: Fw: Hidden Taxes on Fishing and Other Sports Items for Obamacare - Cabela's Blows Whistle

I read this and followed the links to the IRS site and read the info. Just to be sure I went on-line, went to the IRS web site, clicked on Forms and Publications, searched tor 510, and I got the same info as the links in this article take you to. What was really interesting was reading the pages that followed the list and seeing that the tax is different for different items, some are 10%.
SEND THIS TO EVERYONE YOU KNOW  and maybe enough people will get mad and contact their congressmen.
You need to see this. I think all Retailers need to show this on their receipts. 
This is corrupt Government at it’s best.
Sporting equipment as Medical devices???????

An Infowars reader sent along an image of a sales receipt from Cabela’s, a popular sporting goods store.

The receipt (pictured at left) spells out what Obama and the feds want to keep secret – the middle class is being heavily taxed despite all the fatuous rhetoric of Democrats who invariably play the class warfare card to sell their confiscatory taxation policies.

“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.

Now please hold on and bare with me before you say "OH, another Alex Jones article!" because 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!
Q1. 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.

So being more curious I clicked on "Chapter 5 of IRS Publication 510" And WALLAH! What do I find under "MEDICAL DEVICES" under "MANUFACTURERS TAXES"?
Manufacturers Taxes
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 definately been fooled, if we believe that the Affordable Care Act is all about health
care. It truely 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!

I am no fan of Obama, and I didn't vote for him (nor did I vote for RMoney).

I just wish these tools would get over their addiction to hyperventilating rightwing think tank propoganda lies.

There's plenty of issues that could be addressed about so-called "ObamaCare," along with a host of other issues, including the fact that "both" parties are intent on cutting & gutting Soc Sec & Medicare.

These tools would rather waste their time fulminating about "that one."

Southern Strategy rides again.

Well, John, you kinda lied there. Did it not occur to you that people might actually click the link?

To gruaud: to be fair, "John" knows that rightwingers will never bother to check any links. Why should they? Links are for pussy LIEbruls, who don't know how to have fun getting their panties inna bunch over nothing.

Anoner -

The R-Dubs capacity for swallowing codswallop whole without anything even remotely approaching skepticism has the strange effect of saddening and amusing me at the same time.

I suspect this blind acceptance is related to the authoritarian follower mindset, as described by Robert Altemeyer.

I also attribute it to intellectual laziness, as I've mentioned before.
