    Taxation WITH representation ain't so hot, either.

    I wonder if that is how the companies will be passing along Obama Care expenses, which we all knew was gonna happen. How Washington thinks a business will just give up profits is beyond me. They KNOW the costs get passed along, but you never hear that questioned by the media.

    This isn't a tax directly on your items, though it's being posted on the receipt that way. This is extra money they retailer is having to shell out, passing the cost on to you, and they're showing you on the receipt exactly why you're paying more and by how much.

    Our representatives represent themselves, not the people who voted for them.

    It's the medical device excise tax of 2.8% the business pays on all medical device sales. Gotta pay for Obamacare somehow. What I do not get is why you were charged for a non medical device?

    There's nothing that will change someone's moral outlook quicker than cash in large sums.

    Majority rule only works if you're also considering individual rights. Because you can't have five wolves and one sheep voting on what to have for supper.

    Uh, I'd really like to see the statute that has classified guns, accessories and ammo as medical devices. I'm not a fan of obamacare, but I don't think this receipt is accurate at all. If it were, the NRA and drudge would be having a field day with it already.

    I'm not sure what the receipt is for; as I said, it's not mine. However, it's obvious that there are more taxes being added to something to pay for all that free care. We all know that this is just the beginning...it never gets better.

    Just checked, the receipt is from Cabelas.

    From a friends post on another forum....

    The new Medical Excise Tax only took effect as of 01/01/2013. Since the date on the receipt has convienently been cropped out of the picture it makes it impossible to tell when it is from.

    The new tax imposes an excise tax on the sale of certain medical devices by the manufacturer or importer of the device. Unless Cabela's started selling these medical devices these new taxes have absolutely nothing to do with anything they sell in the store.
    As far as the first line that is listed as general sales and use there is no new tax labeled as a general sales and use tax that has been passed into law as part of Obamacare.
    In 2013 there are 11 new taxes that will become law. All of them with the exception of one has to do with heath care and penalties for not complying.

    In short either the receipt is a fake or been photoshopped.


    Cabela's has more than one "tax issue"...

    It's not about medical devices, it's about business owners having to pay more for medical insurance for employees, I believe.

    Preliminary data from another study of employers that have 10 to more than 500 employees, the 2012 National Survey of Employer-Sponsored Health Plans, predicts that the average per-employee cost of health coverage will rise about 6.5 percent in 2013 and that 58 percent of employers surveyed plan to shift costs to their employees to reduce the increase, says George Lane, principal at Mercer, the human resource consulting company that conducts the annual survey.

    EDIT: I see there's a separate tax law for medical devices. My post may be irrelevant.

    We are going to be nickeled and dimed to death over "Affordable Health Care", wait and see. Looks like it's already beginning no matter who specifically is doing it. It may be companies passing along the increases to their customers or the feds doing it directly, either way, we all pay...even those of us who have health insurance and have paid for it all our lives.

    I'm just guessing here but it wouldn't surprise me if before long anything considered a hazard to your health, be it a gun or french fries, will have a "healthcare" tax slapped on it.
