Muslims are exempted from the mandate to purchase health insurance??


Nancy Pelosi said that the Health Care Bill needed to be passed so that people can find out what is in it. Here is a little of what is in it.

Muslim Exemption

Muslims are specifically exempted from the government mandate to purchase insurance, and also from the penalty tax for being uninsured. Islam considers insurance to be "gambling", "risk-taking" and "usury" and is thus banned. Muslims are specifically granted exemption based on this.

page 128:
"(A) RELIGIOUS CONSCIENCE EXEMPTION.—Such term [i.e., "applicable individual"] shall not include any individual for any month if such individual has in effect an exemption under section 1311(d)(4)(H) of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act which certifies that such individual is a member of a recognized religious sect or division thereof described in section 1402(g)(1) and an adherent of established tenets or teachings of such sect or division as described in such section.






Tax On Home Sale
A Federal tax of 3.8% on the sale of homes [that is $7,600 on the sale of a $200K house].

Tanning Tax
A 10% tax on tanning. That should pretty much shut down those businesses.

Investment Income Tax
Investment income is already taxed, but an additional 3.8% tax will be added to people with incomes of $200K. Since the tax is not indexed for inflation it will eventually include anyone with investment income.

Cadillac Health Care Tax
I thought the government wanted us all to have health care coverage? However, if your coverage is too good [a value of $10,200] you must pay a 40% tax or an additional $4,080/ year

Individual Penalty Tax
A penalty of $695 or 2% of your income [whichever is more] is the penalty for individuals who do not purchase health care

Family Penalty
A family that does not purchase health care will be taxed $347/child up to $2,250 per year. Your children fall under this penalty to be paid by you until they are 27.

Employer Penalty
Any business with 50 or more employees will be taxed $2,000 per year per employee, if you do not provide health care coverage to the employees. As a small business with 40+ employees, I am sure that you will avoid hiring that 50th employee. This will certainly discourage hiring by small business which provide 70% of the jobs.

IRS Enforcement
The final good news is that the IRS will enforce all these new taxes and penalties with the power to withhold tax returns, place liens on property, and if the first two fail put you in jail. We all know what fun it is to deal with the IRS. Oh yes, the IRS will have to expand by 15,000 to 60,000 employees to cover the new work load. At $100,000 per year for pay and benefits per new employee [probably a low figure] that means new IRS payroll of $15-$60 billion per year. They will really have to be aggressive to be sure to cover their payroll needs.



All this shows that it never was about health care. It was all about expanding government, taxation, and the power of government to control all aspects of our lives.

    If the Amish and the Muslims are exempt, then so are the rest of us as far as I'm concerned. Time to make our demands known and force the issue even if it means all out war. If William Ayers can commit murder and try burning down the Pentagon, if Reverend Wright can blurt out racism like he's handing out lemonaide on a hot day, if known and committed communist Van Jones can slander the United States of America with his communist BS, then we can drive these a**holes out. The constitution gives us that power, we need to use it.

    Great post. I knew the big winners were the insurance companies collecting billions in premiums people will be forced to have and for the poor paid for with tax dollars. I did not know it was also a massive tax increase bill.

    Since the Obamas have been involved in healthcare I wonder how much money they stand to make from their stocks in healthcare.

    Support America! Deport Obama!

    Who wasn't paying attention to this? Wasn't this passed when a majority of the population said "no"? Which party was the one that pushed this? Which party did not cast a single vote for it?
    If you can't answer these questions, you don't need health care, you need a brain replacement.

    Section 1402(g)(1) reads as follows:

    (g) Members of certain religious faiths
    (1) Exemption
    Any individual may file an application (in such form and manner, and with such official, as may be prescribed by regulations under this chapter) for an exemption from the tax imposed by this chapter if he is a member of a recognized religious sect or division thereof and is an adherent of established tenets or teachings of such sect or division by reason of which he is conscientiously opposed to acceptance of the benefits of any private or public insurance which makes payments in the event of death, disability, old-age*, or retirement* or makes payments toward the cost of, or provides services for, medical care (including the benefits of any insurance system established by the Social Security Act)*. Such exemption may be granted only if the application contains or is accompanied by—
    (A) such evidence of such individual’s membership in, and adherence to the tenets or teachings of, the sect or division thereof as the Secretary may require for purposes of determining such individual’s compliance with the preceding sentence, and

    *I wonder if they're exempt from participating in Social Security as well?

    You bet it does. Since the Bill of Rights explicitly keeps any religion from being granted favored status over another, this is in violation of that.
