IRS Commissioner Doug Shulman said yesterday that the IRS will confiscate or reduce any individuals tax refund if they do not purchase health insurance.

Reduce withholding so you don’t have a refund.
F them I always owe.
Maybe some Dems out there will start to get upset at the thought of IRS confiscation
There ya go.
Then I guess you would just owe more...they will find a way to take your hard earned money.
And then they’ll up the welfare checks....like they did here in NYS.
have to pay taxes first...doubt if many of them do...they’re in the “where do i get tax credits” line!
Imagine what the Founders would say about this...
Founders? Who are they? I don’t think I learned about them in public school.
Is welfare still hiring? I hear its a pretty lucrative career; tons of perks and benefits.
What tax refund? I always work it so that there is no refund, I usually pay in. Anyone can do this, so the plan of “don’t get health insurance”, “Pay the fine”, “sign up when I get sick “ is sill the cheapest way to go.
They will eventually need to ramp up the threats/penalties, but so far they have not hit on a punitive/effective set of rules.
I KNOW what our Forefathers would’ve done and it has to do with the nearest tree they could find.
We are all going to be owing, and owing a heck of a lot more....
I used to have an accountant that thought she was a junior IRS agent. Fired her.
Once the IRS gets their paws into the cookie jar of your bank account, they will not leave you so much as a fossilized chocolate chip.
I am closing one down right now, and looking at alternatives to close two other banks. I am preparing for the worst. May keep one in place with a small balance that minimizes what the Federal Government can take from me without asking.
Question - will they tap “any” refund? Like where certain folks get more back than they ever paid in?
I know someone who is stockpiling large amounts of silver.. May be the only thing which can buy a loaf of bread. Gold is nice, but pricey.. “God, Gold and Guns”
Will all of the "31 million," now uninsured, be "insured" if they don't buy health insurance?
Am I going nuts, or is it our government that's gone nuts?
Tired of the Chicago politics of holding people hostage through threats! This is how the health care bill was passed. It’s brute thuggery.
If everyone claimed exemption from withholding, self employed did not pay their quarterly, and nobody filed a 1040, what would the IRS do? Arrest the whole country?
In other words, hold all of us for ransome? What the heck are they doing now?
For 130+ years, the federal government ran solely on income from tarifs and other minor forms of taxations (none of which were directly on citizens.)
Harry Reid told Greta last night that people aren't going to cheat on health care. NO, he really said that!
I never let them use my money for a year. Just fix is so you never have a refund.
The penalty you pay will insure them.

Are we living in AMERICA?
Is it true that the health care bill has now given the government the right, at any time it choses, to look into our personal bank accounts...saving, checking, etc., and MOVE our money out if it determines we owe something? Without a court order or without notice or without discussion or even a court date? With NO DEFENSE? Are our bank accounts now like a social security number and OWNED BY THE STATE or FEDERAL GOVERNMENT?
WHAT IN THE HELL IS GOING DOWN HERE?
I hope I am wrong.
My withholdings are already set that they don’t get to keep my money all year intereste free.
“When you see that trading is done, not by consent, but by compulsion — when you see that in order to produce, you need to obtain permission from men who produce nothing — when you see money flowing to those who deal, not in goods, but in favors — when you see that men get richer by graft and pull than by work, and your laws dont protect you against them, but protect them against you — when you see corruption being rewarded and honesty becoming a self-sacrifice — you may know that your society is doomed.”

Progressives, liberals, socialists, Marxists..... All paths lead to h3ll.
I hate ta tell ya, but they will start withholding for health insurance, just like FICA and FUTA and all the rest. I am confident with this (obvious) prediction.
Apparently they havent got the memo yet. They belong to a ten by ten mile radious only
I’ll underpay my witholding.
Whatcha going to do? Lock me up because I refuse your mandated economic transaction?
Better come very well armed.
What’s a “tax refund”?
It’s a good idea anyway not to give them so much, people should do it anyways and always owe.
Won’t matter unfortunately, they will just access your bank accounts and take the penalty.
Might be time to go bankless too. But they can always garnish wages even if your withholding is maxed.
It’s just ridiculous.
If you don’t buy health insurance, they’ll fine you. If you don’t pay the fine, they’ll arrest you. If you resist arrest, they’ll kill you...but they better plan on bringing more than 1 body bag.
Fine, PECKER-HEAD; we’ll start working for cash and you can stuff your IRS.
IRS Won't Hunt the Uninsured

A centerpiece of the new health care law calls on most Americans to buy health insurance by 2014 or start paying fines collected by the Internal Revenue Service. But IRS Commissioner Doug Shulman said Monday that federal agents won't chase after people who don't pay up.
"These are not the kinds of things we send agents out about," he said. "These are things where you get a letter from us. Congress was very careful to make sure there was nothing too punitive in this bill." .
And this is truly unconstitutional. The SCOTUS better do their job...
I’d like to remove/disown the banks (and any other financial institution) but where I work - we are required to have direct deposit. So, I’m thinking - that on payday, using my debit card, withdrawing my pay over a period of several days and leave ten bucks in the account to keep it open. I’ll buy money orders instead.
Me, I tweak withholding so that I wind up with a small refund check. I'd prefer to get a few bucks back in April, rather than need to write a check, myself. Of course, it's easy to dial it the other way, too. :-)
I wonder how he explains away all the cheating that has been going on in Massachusetts--people paying the inexpensive fine instead of high insurance premiums while they are healthy, then buying insurance when they are sick, going off again when they don't need care, in a cycle that lets them rip off the system just like Greta said she feared.
The one good thing about this policy is that it will convert a lot of liberals to conservative. Overnight.
Actually, I haven’t decided yet whether I’m going to be a political prisoner or a rebel. It’ll be a surprise to them one way or another when it happens.
