A Hidden Obamacare "Tax" That Few Know About But Close To 40% May End Up Paying
Yesterday the Internal Revenue Service posted guidance outlining its intent to enforce Obamacare’s “individual mandate” – a tax on those who don’t sign up by the end of March for health insurance that meets the law’s requirements. It was part of the plan all along, that health officials would raise noise around the tax penalty heading into the closing days of Obamacare’s open enrollment. The idea is to use the specter of this tax as a way to coerce a few more stragglers and holdouts into the insurance market.

Interestingly enough The forgotten treaty which could drag the US and UK into WAR with Russia if Putin's troops intervene in Ukraine
Of the many provisions in the treaty, one of the most important and controversial required "Germany [to] accept the responsibility of Germany and her allies for causing all the loss and damage" during the war (the other members of the Central Powers signed treaties containing similar articles). This article, Article 231, later became known as the War Guilt clause. The treaty forced Germany to disarm, make substantial territorial concessions, and pay reparations to certain countries that had formed the Entente powers. In 1921 the total cost of these reparations was assessed at 132 billion Marks (then $31.4 billion or £6.6 billion, roughly equivalent to US $442 billion or UK £284 billion in 2014)
