Skip to comments.The New Face of Health Care -- the IRS
Posted on 08/18/2012 5:54:52 AM PDT by NYer
When President Obama's Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA, aka "Obamacare") goes fully into effect in 2014, the American people will only then begin to see the implications of its thorough government takeover of health care, in all its glory. But what they are not expecting is the massively expanded role of the Internal Revenue Service ("IRS") in our lives, as the IRS is the chief agency responsible for enforcing the Act.
That is explained in a new paper by Dan Pilla, just published by the Heartland Institute, "Implementing the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act." Pilla is a tax litigation consultant and a national leader in taxpayer rights defense, authoring 11 books on IRS defense strategies. His new paper explains "how the IRS can be expected to play an ever-growing role in your life and in the day-to-day affairs of every business in the nation as the tentacles of the PPACA wrap themselves around the most important and personal elements of your life."
Pilla estimates that it will take a minimum of 5,000 and perhaps as many as 16,000 additional IRS employees to carry out the "massive expansion of the power and reach of the Internal Revenue Service" under the PPACA.
Perhaps the most important and complex new IRS responsibility is to enforce the act's individual and employer mandates requiring individuals and employers to buy the health insurance not that they want, but that the federal government says they must have. This will effectively be a new burdensome payroll tax on the middle class and working people, and on job creators, as politics will force every politically correct benefit to be included in the required insurance, causing its cost to soar.

Let me guess, the IRS is asking for the most expensive leather coats, boots and uniforms as well?
Or will they have a uniform like Judge Dredd?
On the spot they declare you are guilty?
Speechless at this.
Every time my friends tell me my hatred for obama is too much i send them articles like this.
The silver lining to all this...is that after a few cycles of this nonsense, there will be so much public pressure on a Tea Party Congress to defund the IRS and redo how We the People choose to fund the DC crowd, that it MIGHT just happen.
...to see how this works....view the film “Brazil”
How many new hundreds of millions of rounds of ammo did they order?
Same spiffy, black military BDUs they’ve worn for the past, but all-new color-matching hardware. Lots of new Kevlar “touches” in their wardrobe.
We’re declared *guilty* l-o-n-g before the JBTs ever get to the house to arrest/kill us.
I doubt that a number of FR posters will read or give credence to such articles - they don't want to be diverted from going after "the real enemy"...
