File this under 'you never thought it would happen in America.'
The Senate healthcare bill that is scheduled to be 'deemed as passed' by the House of Representatives Sunday afternoon, H.R. 3590, mandates the Internel Revenue Service as the enforcement arm of Barack Obama's dictate that all Americans be covered by health insurance.
The IRS will be empowered to check every month to ensure that every American meets Obama's dictated health insurance standards.
The IRS is also empowered to levy fines on those not in compliance. Under existing federal law, refusal to follow the rules of the IRS can lead to imprisonment--or worse.
An analysis released yesterday by Republicans on the House Ways and Means Committee estimates that 16,500 IRS agents will need to be hired to meet the expanded authority granted the IRS.
The nine page .PDF document details how the IRS will become the new overlord of the American people. A new section of the IRS code, 5000A, would be created by the bill. Americans would be required to maintain insurance deemed acceptable by the secretaries of the Treasury and Health and Human Services. Failure to do so would result in enforcement fines levied by the IRS in the hundreds or thousands of dollars depending on the income of the offender. The fines would be known as the Indivdiual Mandate Tax. The report adds that the IRS could add interest and penalties for failure to pay the IMT.
Health insurance providers would be required to file reports with the IRS on each individual they insure. The IRS would be able to share confidential taxpayer information with Health and Human Services.
According to the report, exemptions to the IMT dictate would be granted by Obama to approved groups and individuals for the following reasons: religious conscience, members of a health care sharing ministry, those below the poverty line, members of Indian tribes, incarcerated individuals and illegal aliens.
Under this bill, every American would be forced to answer to Barack Obama. If they fail to submit to his will, they will be fined, imprisoned or worse.

** IRS Buying 14 Combat Shotguns **
The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) intends to purchase sixty Remington Model 870 Police RAMAC #24587 12 gauge pump-action shotguns for the Criminal Investigation Division. The Remington parkerized shotguns, with fourteen inch barrel, modified choke, Wilson Combat Ghost Ring rear sight and XS4 Contour Bead front sight, Knoxx Reduced Recoil Adjustable Stock, and Speedfeed ribbed black forend, are designated as the only shotguns authorized for IRS duty based on compatibility with IRS existing shotgun inventory, certified armorer and combat training and protocol, maintenance, and parts.
Planted? My FRiend, they are sprouting!
“It can happen here” They won’t get away with it for long!
Will tarring and feathering tax collectors come back into vogue?
DESTROY DEMON PASS !
When the Government hires 15,000 new people to police Americans to enforce their compliance to a “gift” - - THAT is dictatorship: 101
That the IRS even owns a single shotgun is outrageous!
Does this mean that Obama himself would be exempt, and if so, wouldn't granting himself an exemption constitute a conflict of interest?
Then they're going to need to build a whole lot more prisons.
Maybe this is Obama’s idea of shovel ready jobs?
I can see more clearly now why tax collectors were so dispised and hated back in Jesus’ day.
What Good Can a Handgun Do Against an Army.....?
St. Joseph, terror of demons, pray for us.
Hang the Democrats from lamp posts in November (metaphorically speaking).
Rep Garamendi (D-California) is now sicking capitol police on persons calling his office and opposing the HC bill. We will soon be subject to arrest and prosecution by federal agents for opposing Obama and the Democrat congress. How far will they go?
the real deal...comrade
So, who’s gonna sign up for retribution when the IRS goes after someone over a violation?
