Wasserman Schultz: ObamaCare Not A Tax, IRS "Easiest" Way To Enforce Penalty
Posted on July 2, 2012

**SNIP**

"The way we usually think of taxation, Wolf, is that taxation as the IRS administers is collected on broad swaths and large categories of individuals. This is a penalty that will be assessed on the tax return if you choose to roll the dice and make us all pay for your being irresponsible and increase all of our health care costs," Wasserman Schultz said on the Monday evening broadcast of CNN's "The Situation Room."

When Caesar led his men across the Rubicon, he declared "Alia iacta est!" -- The die is cast!

You want to roll the dice? Go ahead. Make my day.

The fact that she even assumes that she can get away with such a statement proves that we are already lost as a free nation of the people.

Ms. Toilet Brush Hair is such a twit.

And I can use that word with either an I, or an A.

And what about all the freeloaders that will now be placed on Medicare, at no cost to themselves. How is that not increasing costs for all the rest of us? My god, will these people ever shut up and go away.

She can and will get away with this statement. Who's going to hold her feet to the fire? The media? Boehner and the country club Republicans in charge of the House? If you're lucky a few Conservatives will, talk radio and maybe Fox, but they'd be preaching to the choir. The average dolt who puts these clowns in office doesn't care what they say as long as the government freebies keep coming.

It is a tax.

It is a penalty.

It is punishment, for not bowing to our overlords.

Yikes! The first thing I saw when I clicked on the above link was a large pic of DWS's face. As luck would have it, the 2nd thing I saw was the Maker's Mark pop-up ad down in the bottom left of the screen.

I don't drink Maker's Mark, but after what my eyes just witnessed, it may be a good time to start.

I’ll be the first to contribute to Wasser-Putz’s frontal lobotamy. If there ever was a congressional freeloader who needed one, it is her (aka electric socket hair woman)

Taxation is to fund common needs, like security and certain infrastructure.

Health care is both a common and individual need. Common in that acute care is provided to all. It’s OK to tax for that, and we already do at various levels.

Provision of individual needs, funded by taxation; is nothing more than outside control of the individual. It should be individual choice.

We fought a revolution over this a while back, and we may have to again.

There are 21 TAXES contained within Obamacare, 7 of which hit the middle class directly. Just keep repeating the lie sleezebags, you are going to get laughed out of DC in November.

Hmmm, don't we all have to pay for 911 services for those who choose to roll the dice and act irresponsibly by not arming themselves against home invasions?

Wasserman Schultz: ObamaCare Not A Tax

RIGHT!

Just like the RAT party is NOT a criminal enterprise, and just like you are NOT the madam, and Barry is NOT the Don.

And the IRS is...."The Enforcer"?

Tee-freakin-rific!

You think it is going to be easy for the IRS to get money out of me that I do not owe them and refuse to pay ? You must be joking. The IRS came after me last year for thousands. I sent them a letter they could not refuse. They waived all penalties. Go ahead. Dig into Wasserman. Have them reinstate the penalties they waived. I want this fight.

So now the bipolar dems have gone from “Obamacare is needed to give all these 30/42/whatever million poor folks who can’t get insurance” to “Obamacare is needed to get you freeloaders who don’t have insurance to have to buy it and stop mooching off the rest of us.”

Compassionate schizophrenia from our friends across the aisle.

If an intellectual lightweight like Debbie Downer thinks so then it must be true.

"This is a penalty that will be assessed on the tax return if you choose to roll the dice and make us all pay for your being irresponsible and increase all of our health care costs,"

The hypocrisy and arrogance is simply astounding. This goose stepping little sociopathic brown shirt won't even have to use so called "health care" that the rest of us will be subjected to. And then this rotten little piece of subhuman offal proceeds to inform us with glee that if we do not comply she will send the IRS Gestapo to enforce this tyranny. One way or the other we are going to have to deal with these Marxist scum.
