Posted on 03/20/2010 2:03:31 AM PDT by Suvroc10
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!

The IRS will be checking every single legal US citizen once a month to ensure compliance ...
Have a nice day,
I'd suggest that if one wants to see where Obama's true dedication is, look at his policies--protecting illegals vs. penalizing and insulting Americans; stepping on or ignoring good allies while kissing up to terrorist religions--but these days that makes one a hater.
I’ll die or go to prison before I allow this to be a part of my life. Damn Obama and all those that support him.
The question is how much will it take before adults will say enough is enough and arrest these domestic terrorists who have committed crimes against the United States of America and from within.
But, Hey, obamalama just “created 17,000 new jobs!”. His legacy is spared.
I hope we are there - if not, I’m on my own.
Wow, another feature just like here in Massachusetts under the Californian’s Romneycare.
( or is he just a carpetbagger from Utah, New Hampshire, Michigan....?)
And remember, thru this you will not be going thru regular court but thru “tax courts” which apparently operate differently. Wonder if those that don’t buy insuancce that are able to will lose their right to vote, you know being a criminal and all.
and it only cost $940 Billion to create 17,000 jobs. That’s what; $50 Million per job?
You will see I predict an “underground economy” emerging in which folks will be paid in cash.
You know, it astonishes me. One of the reasons Obama is pushing this is because he needs to find a way to pay back the horrible deficit. The reason we have the deficit is because the government stole our money and used it for purposes for which it was not intended. Now, they are going to fine us with this health care nonsense to pay back what they stole in the first place. Instead of them going to jail for their crimes, we will be fined and more money stolen. Given Congress’s past record, not only will we be fined for a non-functional new program, but this money will also be diverted to another cause, which will put us further into debt and will eventually cause our enslavement and overthrow. This is the the America I know. We seem to have disappeared.
I am amazed, but I don’t suppose that I should be.
I thought that with Obama being in office, criminals have been given the right to vote? Nothing would surprise me.
Our own government is waring against its own people. the servant is now the boss. Funny, you can’t ask an illegal his status if he is pulled over by police, he has rights you know, but our elected government can subject it’s citizens to harassment, threats, fines and imprisonment if they don’t comply with thier requests. Thier poking the tiger in the cage, the question is ....is it on purpose?
When the last man willing to die for his cause, is dead, the war is over — Spengler.
Fortunately Liberals are pussies to a man.
Their women may take a little effort...
“Fortunately Liberals are pussies to a man.
Their women may take a little effort...”
Don’t be so overconfident - we were and we lost.
"Health Care Speechwriter for Edwards, Obama & Clinton Now Without Health Insurance"
I'm a critic because what Washington is talking about doing
has made health insurance unaffordable in Massachusetts.
"Small businesses bridle at health insurance hikes (Romneycare strangles Mass. businesses)
some really bad news from Blue Cross-Blue Shield: His company's health insurance rates are going up 47 percent in January."
"Paying the Health Tax in Massachusetts [Romneycare]
Unless we ponied up for a pricier policy we
neither need nor want-or enrolled in a government-sponsored insurance plan-we
would have to pay $1,000 each year to the state.
How did we become outlaws?"
"Mr. Romney should have known better before signing on to this not-so-grand experiment, especially since the state's "free market" reforms that he boasts about have proven to be irrelevant when not fictional.
Only 21,000 people have used the "connector" that was supposed to link individuals to private insurers."
A Very Sick Health Plan; Bay State's 'Grand Experiment' Fails [RomneyCare]
Even though the Bay State commenced its program with a far smaller percentage of uninsured residents than exists nationwide,
"RomneyCare" is threatening to bankrupt the state."
