    Just can’t wait to get my lifetime and annual coverage max limits, pre-existing condition exclusions, retroactive policy rescissions back… Annual out of pocket maximum? Who needs those?? I want to go bankrupt if I ever get really sick or injured, that’s the AMERICAN WAY not that pinko “Affordable Care”

    Shouldn’t this affect the 2017 tax returns, not 2016 since it was already law as of 12/31/16?

      Nope. It affects 2016 tax year, and if you didn’t expect a refund and underpaid, the LIE-RS wouldn’t pursue collection of the tax penalty for ANY prior year.

    Is he also going to do away with the mandate for Medicare Part D?
    How about those pesky state laws that require you carry auto insurance? Those laws are such a pain and don’t really make any difference anyway…

    Another well thought-out plan by the Trump Administration!

      I have two better ideas, which have already been initiated by TrumPresident;

      1. do away with ILLEGAL immigration and the associated welfare given to them by Socialist Dems.

      2. do away with redundant and inefficient regulations.

      Both of the above ‘do aways’ will be much more preferable to US citizens than the ‘do away with; crap you suggested.

      Polar, I just watched the President’s news conference. He handed the Progressive reporters their head big time. They are all buzzfeed Fake News and were all called out for their blatant bias and dishonesty.

      Listen, he is doing just what we hired him to do and he is keeping his campaign promises. Healthcare slated to come out in March, tax reform shortly afterward. The Progressive agenda is over, but they still don’t get that.

          We have been “Fed Up” with Progressive Socialism and their thousands of lies for 8 years. The agenda failed, they got beat and now we have a President who won’t put up with the liberal bias and lies about him and his administration. He is merely correcting the wrongs. Scream, jump up and down, fall in the floor kicking and having a fit if you like. There is a new Sheriff in town and Elections have consequences.

          You must be a member of the liberal Mainstream Media, which just got their collective a$$&S handed to them by TrumPresident.

          Despite being called out, several media members tried to continue their line of biased questioning. Trump dumped on them.

          What a breath of fresh air.

          This exchange was interesting:

          In response to a question about threats to Jewish centers nationwide, Trump called a Jewish reporter a liar, told him to sit down and later said antisemitism was coming from “the other side.”

          The exchange kicked off as Trump looked through the room at his White House press conference and asked for an easy question from a “friendly” reporter who liked him.

          The journalist identified himself as Jake Turx with Ami Magazine. Turx prefaced his question by saying he did not see evidence the President or his staff were antisemitic.

          Here’s the rest of the exchange:

          Turx: “What we are concerned about, and what we haven’t really heard being addressed, is an uptick in antisemitism and how the government is planning to take care of it.”

          Trump, interrupting: “See, he said he was going to ask a very simple, easy question, and it’s not.”

          Turx: “It’s an important one.”

          Trump: “Not a simple question. Not a fair question. Okay, sit down. I understand the rest of your question.”

          This is what a dictator sounds like.

            The biased, dishonest media is the reason why Trump gets short with them. They were used to asking Obama what he liked best about his job. All soft ball questions. They sure don’t like it when he gives it to them and calls them out.

            Dictators are those like your hero who issues Executive Orders countermanding the laws of this country. Trump is reversing these Progressive orders as we speak. He is exactly what this country needed during a critical time in the history of this country. Sorry you don’t like it, but elitist Progressives lost.

            No, it’s what a true leader sounds like.

            If the press were unbiased, they would get cooperation. Since they aren’t, they won’t.

            Only fair media need attend the next presser. I’m sure that won’t happen due to their deeply ingrained liberal bias, due indirectly to ‘scholastic indoctrination’; i.e. brainwashing in school by liberal teacher and administrators.

            PolarBeaRepeal,

            Since President Trump believes Vladimir Putin, a dictator, is a great leader, I am not surprised that you would find someone with dictatorial characteristics to be a leader.

            My issue was that he only wants to answer easy questions, from friendly reporters.

            You may believe he sounded like a leader, but he definitely did not sound presidential.

      I’m going to GUESS that it won’t. But omitting PAYMENT of the penalty WON’T initiate an LIE-RS action/ bill to collect it.

        Polar, there is a new title being popularized for the left. They are now known as the ALT LEFT.

        By the way, the American people see right through these jerks. Look at what Journalism schools have been turning out for the past 15-20 years. Mandatory brainwashing into Progressive Socialist thinking by Alinsky graduates. Latest approval rating of Trump just yesterday at 55%. That is a good sign.

            Thanks, insult monitor. Please change your ‘moniker’, which is not to be confused with ‘Monica’ or ‘monitor’ (teleprompter).

      Donny, did you miss the part that the “fine” turned out to be a tax as ruled by the Supreme Court. By the way, taxes can be eliminated from about anything. Check out the tax reform in a few weeks on marginal rate reductions for all American citizens. You may be overjoyed.

    Headline is misleading. Tax penalty for not having coverage still applies – that is statute and cannot be overruled by an executive order. The change is that the IRS will not pend returns that are missing the insurance information. Since the IRS was to start pending returns this year, there is in effect no change in enforcement. It is unfortunate that this and other news coverage will lead people to mistakenly think the tax penalty no longer applies.

    The congress should take care as should the President. Should the ACA be undone or not funded, then the next reform on tap when the Democratic party takes government is single payer. Once single payer is enacted, it will never be undone. That’s the long term prospect. By undoing something which they don’t like they are, in the end, going to get something they like even less, which is to socialize the finance of health care in its entirety. Most of healthcare finance is already socialized through Medicare, Medicaid and the VA,so the remaining “free market” in finance is actually more symbolic than substantive. The ideologues will cling to their “free market” solutions until the end but they will become irrelevant.

      Everyone is quaking in their boots… or Uggs… about Single Payer.

      It will only apply if Libitterals leave the USA for Cana-duh, Britain, France, etc.

      I look forward to the dismantling of ACA (ObamaCarExit), then Medicare, then Medicaid, then – or – sooner – the VA…. by Republicans. Once The People see what the Free Maarket can do that the US Gummint screwed up in every instance, they will NEVER ALLOW Social insurance programs again. NEVER.

          And, with 5 or 6 Conservative Justices seated on SCOTUS before the end of TrumPresidency, the free market insurance scenario will never be replaced by social insurance. NEVER. EVER. FOREVER and EVER.

            Polar, saw a bit of the latest speech by our new Commander in Chief today at the Boeing Plant in SC celebrating their new passenger plane being built there in Right to Work SC. It was so insane that he got numerous cheers and a standing ovation at the conclusion. Hire American, buy American is music to my ears.

      Vox, spoken like a true believer Alt lefter. I am afraid the momentum has gone away for the left in this country and there is no one in the bullpen to lead the charge back to Progressive Socialism that Obama started. I would call the Progressive Socialist Democratic Party “toast” for at least 2-3 decades.

    It is you, Polarbear, who is deluded, deluded from ideological neurosis. Your neurosis is on display for all to see, to-wit:
    “NEVER EVER”. This is the rant of a childlike mentality.
    I am not supporting a utopian dream, I am telling you what is going to happen.

      Actually Vox, you should be paying attention to the childish rants of Progressive true believers. They have the mentality of a 14 year old. By the way, Trump won, Hilliary thug lost. Elections have important consequences. Get used to it. More to come.

        Polar, how about a few quotes from one of our greatest Presidents?

        “How do you tell a communist? Well, it’s someone who reads Marx and Lenin. How do you tell an anti-communist? It’s someone who understands Marx & Lenin”. Ronald Reagan

        “If you are afraid of the future, then get out of the way, stand aside. the people of this country are ready to move again”. – Ronald Reagan.

        By the way, the second one should be the clarion call of Trump to the leftists in this country trying to stand in his way to recover this country.
