Medical Excise Tax on Retail Receipts Shows How We're Screwed by Obamacare

Medical Excise Tax on Retail Receipts Shows How We're Screwed by Obamacare

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

CNN, MSNBC, the New York Times and other apologists for government theft naturally don’t expose the heavy dose of taxes hidden in Obamacare.

A screenshot of a Cabela's

A screenshot of a Cabela's store receipt that has widely circulated the internet in recent weeks shows purchases made for $279.67, with $26.69 of this total representing taxes.

Not only had the Obama administration previously indicated that medical devices sold at the retail level would be exempt from the tax, but Cabela's does not even sell medical devices, which makes the appearance of anomalous charge highly confusing.
