Skip to comments.LePage calls IRS the 'new Gestapo'

Gov. Paul LePage used his weekly radio address to blast President Obama's health care law and described the Internal Revenue Service as the "new Gestapo."
The IRS description was a reference to a provision in the Affordable Care Act that requires Americans not insured by their employers or Medicaid to buy health insurance or pay an annual penalty when filing their tax returns. The provision, known more broadly as the individual mandate, was the subject of a multi-state lawsuit, but was recently upheld by the U.S. Supreme Court.
LePage said the court decision has "made America less free."
"We the people have been told there is no choice," he said. "You must buy health insurance or pay the new Gestapo -- the IRS."

Actually, the EPA is the new Gestapo, and the IRS is a close second.
Give either a little more time, and there’ll be no doubt that either is something lifted from the 1930’s-40’s Reich, or worse.
when you pull money out of your pocket to pay for your stuff... things stop being free
when you’re forced to pull the money out, under threat of violence, to pay for other peoples stuff without your consent... it’s just theft
re-read the Declaration of Independence. you’d be surprised how many of the grievances fit today
First the TSA and now the IRS.
The government is sure making a pretty little bunch of Storm Troopers.
No, I wouldn’t.
Governor of what?
Gov. of Maine
From the address;
“Wether you take it from my left pocket or my right pocket, you’re still taking it from me.”
It seemed that every mad lunatic liberal moved to Maine twenty years ago and converted a somewhat oppressive State to an Obamma republic.
Maine, surprisingly, which also gives us those two seminal/senile RINO’s, Sens. Snowe and Collins.
The democrats call conservatives every name in the book. All the Tea Party congressfolk should call a press conference and announce that anyone who calls them a racist will get their butt kicked. Then follow through.
