WHAT ARE THE TAX INCREASES IN THE BILL AND WILL THEY AFFECT ME?

The bill includes almost a half trillion dollars in new taxes, fees, and penalties on individuals and businesses.

AM I REQUIRED TO PURCHASE HEALTH INSURANCE?

Yes, you will be required to purchase health care insurance beginning in 2014.

HOW DOES THIS BILL AFFECT MEDICARE?

In 2010, this bill will begin making cuts to the Medicare program, with over $100 billion in cuts to hospital, nursing home, and hospice reimbursements.

HOW IS THIS A "GOVERNMENT TAKE-OVER" OF OUR HEALTH CARE SYSTEM?

This bill creates 159 new programs, offices, and authorities for the federal government, and the Congressional Budget Office estimates that 25,000 new government workers will be needed to run these new programs. Over 16,000 of those will be IRS employees responsible for collecting the new taxes in the bill.

“Over 16,000 of those will be IRS employees responsible for collecting the new taxes in the bill.”

Well now that can’t be true! Just today whitehouse.gov said that this was completely false because factcheck.org said it had no factual basis.

And no, I’m not kidding. Whitehouse.gov said that it was not true that they needed 16,000 new IRS employees because factcheck.org said so.
