Skip to comments.IRS looking to hire thousands of armed tax agents to enforce health care laws

Top IRS officials have been working with Democrats on Capitol Hill to determine how the agency will enforce President Obamas new health care law. Republican lawmakers estimate the legislation will require the hiring of many thousands of new tax enforcement agents.
While its still not known exactly how many will be hired, heres whats clear: Under the new law, the IRS is required to fine taxpayers thousands of dollars if they do not purchase health insurance. In order for the government to enforce compliance, tax authorities will need information, for the first time, about peoples health care. Collecting that data will require more IRS personnel.
Consider what has happened in Massachusetts, which passed a similar health care bill in 2006. To enforce the individual mandate, the states Department of Revenue asks filers what kind of insurance they have, as well as details like whether their sincerely held religious beliefs are moving them to petition for an exemption from the requirement.

Choose this day how you will serve; Will you serve unwillingly and at the bidding of others wearing the yoke of socialism or will you hold true to the course of our forefathers standing tall and serving freely? As for me I choose to SERVE THE REPUBLIC!
