#1 OK…. Here comes some of those Obama care taxes on Jan 1, 2013. Soon every purchase you make, there will be more taxes. On 103.98 I was charged 8.58 for Texas state taxes. And then Obama care medical tax another 2.39. So the more you spend , the more goes to the “so called free Obama care”.


#2 O didn’t raise taxes, now did he. Here’s another ObamaTax receipt so you KNOW this is real. They should put ObamaTax on these so people know what they are paying. #tcot #tlot

    Oh crud! I will be making some MAJOR purchases this year. Well, maybe NOT now!

    Both receipts are from Cabela’s and is a glitch in their software….Cabela’s is refunding the mistakes….


    • Michelle Hart says:

      Feel free to explain why a sporting goods store would spend millions of dollars to alter their internal accounting code to add a tax on something they do not manufacture or sell if it’s “just a mistake”.


      • yadent says:

        Could it be that they sell first aid kits that might have a ‘taxable medical device’ in them? Or possibly they ‘jumped the gun’ and this tax will become universal at a undetermined future date hence the reason their software contained such an entry? Just speculating.


        • Michelle Hart says:

          Good speculation for sure…. But in this market NOBODY is gonna throw away a ton of money changing their entire system around to handle a “new tax” they never plan on adding to a bill.


      • Keri Green says:

        Michele, hoonan is a troll paid for by the Government to keep people from not getting stirred up while they DESTROY our country and sneak in all there dirty deceitful bull shit..


    • sundance says:

      Do you have a link to some verification to document your position that this is a “glitch” ?


      • hoonan says:

        Just the chatter on their FB page and on a bunch of hunting forums…supposedly just one location too…

        It isn’t the first time Cabela’s has screwed up in charging taxes…and had to issue money back to customers.

        And due to the lack of seeing any other receipts from any other types retailers posted all over you’d think we’d see more than two even after only 2days….

        MY “guess” on why they even have it in their system is the 1st aid kits…but even then would have to be purchased by a medical professional…..maybe sometimes they supply to rural places or wilderness first responder outfits? I dunno………….

      People just want to be mad. They will take anything they can and inflame it for their own use when they feel they can’t win by merit. It’s textbook. Regardless of who’s in power.

    Snopes is a good place to check, and they say it’s true. There is a 2.3% tax on medical devices:

    And what qualifies as a “medical device” will astound you. See the info at the link above.


  6. tara says:

    According to the IRS publication, the medical excise tax is supposed to be paid by the “manufacturer, producer, or importer of the device“. It’s not a tax paid for by the consumer at the time of purchase, so whoever programmed the Cabela’s tax calculation really screwed up!

    Affordable Care Act. . The Affordable Care Act (Public Law 111-148, amended by Public Law 111-152) (the “Act”) was enacted on March 23, 2010. It contains some tax provisions that are in effect and more that will be implemented during the next several years. The following Act provisions involve excise taxes, and fees that are treated as excise taxes.

    Medical device excise tax.The Act imposes a 2.3 percent excise tax on the sale of certain medical devices by the manufacturer, producer, or importer of the device. The tax applies to sales of taxable medical devices after December 31, 2012.

    Patient-centered outcomes research fee. The Act imposes fees on issuers of certain health insurance policies and plan sponsors of certain self-insured health plans to help fund the Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute. The fees, reported on Form 720 and paid annually, are based on the average number of lives covered under the policy or plan. The fees apply to certain health insurance policies and certain self-insured health plans with policy or plan years ending on or after October 1, 2012, and before October 1, 2019.

    Notice that second “fee” to help fund the Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute. Jesus Christ. This “Institute” has 21 people on the Board of Governors (are they paid??) and three dozen presumably highly-paid staff members. They’ve already approved “25 awards totalling $40.7 million” to fund projects. No wonder Obama needed to implement a fee.

    Here’s the pathetic PCORI mission/vision statements:

    Mission: The Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI) helps people make informed health care decisions, and improves health care delivery and outcomes, by producing and promoting high integrity, evidence-based information that comes from research guided by patients, caregivers and the broader health care community.

    Vision: Patients and the public have the information they need to make decisions that reflect their desired health outcomes.

    Yet another welfare program? Free money and nanny-ing for people who don’t want to take responsibility for their own lives?

      Consumers, one way or another, end up paying ALL costs, taxes included.


      • Eileen Helms says:

        This is true and if more Americans would get their heads out of the sand and realize how right you are, maybe more would be done to stop this madness. Increase in taxes on the producers always get passed down the line to the consumers, one way or another. The consumers are the only ones that don’t have anyone to pass the increase down to. The producers are not there to loose money, but to make it and be sure that is what they will do. I don’t blame them because they are the ones who took all the risk when they started a business and they are not at fault that our government keeps playing these games with the American public. Just for the record, I don’t own a business and with the way things are going I am glad I don’t.

    If anyone sent Christmas parcels internationally in the past two years which required the completion of a Customs declaration form, (including APOs/FPOs) you will have noted the addition of “declared value” in SDR’s.

    SDR = Special Drawing Rights.

    I shopped both Sams and Walmart yesterday and there was no such tax on my receipts I even purchased medical supplies. Seems odd this tax only appeared on receipts for a store that sells guns and ammo.

    I called the atty. gen. office for the state of Maine and burned them. It is being dealt with . I can’t believe the lack of response from Cabela’s . How many paid cash and the money will never be returned? For me it is a 5 hour drive at $3.50 a gallon. At least a apology . Maybe a donation of the money that can’t be refunded nation wide ( think about the amount) to a good cause like make a wish foundation. Any company can make a mistake, but they should be first in line to make it right. Bring in you’r receipt doesn’t cut it. Step up to the plate or you’r crook’s in my book .
