Under Obamacare, IRS Has Power to Penalize Americans Who Refuse to Buy Required Insurance
Associated Content (AC) ^ | March 20, 2010 | Marc Schenker

In another indictment of Obamacare, a congressional report has found that the IRS will have the power to penalize, by means of fines, Americans who refuse to buy required, government insurance. This further, nauseating factor of Obamacare is actually merely a symptom of what the report by the House Ways and Means Committee is really saying: greatly expanded powers for the IRS to encroach upon the lives of average Americans. In the report titled "The Wrong Prescription: Democrats' Health Overhaul Dangerously Expands IRS Authority," other ills of Obamacare are outlined in ever more shocking detail. Some of these include the power of the IRS under Obamacare to: confiscate Americans' tax refunds as a doubly insulting complement to aforementioned penalties for not buying government-mandated insurance; the likelihood of IRS audits (always nice around this time of year) increasing; and the swelling of an already unpopular bureaucracy by increasing by nearly 17000 the number of IRS auditors and agents!

EXIT LIFTS EMANUEL OF HOLLYWOOD (Ari tops the Hollyweird heap)
By PETER LAURIA, NY POST

EXCERPT Less than a month after a merger, Jim Wiatt, CEO of Tinseltown talent agency William Morris, will resign. Sources noted that the question was not whether but when Endeavor boss Ari Emanuel would officially grab power......Sources said Wiatt, after consulting with his inner circle, decided to make the move voluntarily rather than go through a bloody coup. "Ari took over an unbelievable brand for nothing and crushed the internal competition in days."

Ari Emanuel, whose brother is White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel, is kindly called aggressive and temperamental by sources -- he's the inspiration for Jeremy Piven's wildly popular "Entourage" character Ari Gold. Despite their history -- Wiatt fired Emanuel when they worked together at talent agency International Creative Management.

=============================================

THE OTHER BROTHER, Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel was tapped as White House health care policy advisor (thank God perfect Rahm will help perfect Ezekiel handle O/Care-Medicare/Aid trillions--snix)

Rahm's brother, Dr. Emanuel, has received numerous awards....election to the Institute of Medicine (IOM) of the National Academy of Science and the Association of American Physicians. Hippocrates Magazine selected him as Doctor of the Year in Ethics.....the AMA-Burroughs Welcome Leadership Award, the Public Service Award from the American Society of Clinical Oncology, the John Mendelsohn Award from the MD Anderson Cancer Center, and a Fulbright Scholarship (which he declined). Dr. Emanuel served on President Clinton’s Health Care Task Force, the National Bioethics Advisory Commission (NBAC), and on the bioethics panel of the Pan-American Healthcare Organization. Dr. Emanuel has been a visiting professor at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine, UCLA, the Brin Professor at Johns Hopkins Medical School, and the Kovitz Professor at Stanford Medical School.

It's no wonder De Zeke is "overseeing" trillions in healthcare tax dollars.


On the plus side, Dr Zeke was spit-shining his penny
loafers when the subject of O/Care "death panels" surfaced.

Thanks for the information, Liz. Sounds like the deviants snaked their way into the most important and influential places, and unfortunately, in our society, that includes Hollywood...

I can’t see that evil pro-eugenics doctor-brother without being reminded of the Bolshevik Revolution, he has to be reincarnated from one of them.

Now that you mention it-—Dr Zeke looks a lot like the Tom Courtenay character in the Dr Zhivago movie.

You know, seriously, I wanted to mention that character this morning!!! I love that movie, one of the few “allowed” to reveal what went on over there, and it reminds me of my own family’s escape (although theirs was during WWII), but that character is BEYOND frightening. And it seems like a lot of today’s leftists (purposely?) wear those same glasses...
