Skip to comments.IRS Audit For Cancer Patient Choosing Death Over ObamaCare
Posted on 12/04/2013 4:00:57 AM PST by raptor22
Health Reform: A cancer patient who spoke out against the cancellation of his insurance by ObamaCare now faces an IRS audit he may not live to see, and says he'll pay the fine rather than burden his family.
Bill Elliott knows the meaning of the adage that the only two things that are certain are death and taxes, for he is now staring both in the face.
Like the Tea Party before him, Elliott faces an IRS audit for speaking out against the ObamaCare that canceled his insurance coverage he liked and was promised he could keep.
He appeared recently on Charleston, S.C.'s WQSC and was told by the radio host that "you stood up and spoke out about how ObamaCare screwed over your insurance and probably would kill you, and what's the next thing that happened? You get audited by the IRS. That is not a coincidence."
Elliott responded, "No, it's not."
"I like my doctor. I love my insurance," Elliott told Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly last Thursday night. "They were paying just about everything, including medication and medical devices."
Then he got the letter that told him that his cancer was considered "beyond a catastrophic pre-existing condition" and his plan was being canceled because of new regulations.
Elliott says he was given the option of a new $1,500-per-month plan, up from the $180 per month or so that he'd been paying.
"Now with ObamaCare, the man that I've got looked into it, they are not going to pay for pharmaceuticals or medical devices. MRI that I had last month before I got canceled was $3,000. Now, if I have to have another one, it costs me out of my pocket $3,000," Elliott told Kelly on Nov. 7.

Who did he vote for?
I see. He voted for Obama. Sorry. He is getting EXACTLY what he wanted and EXACTLY what he deserves.
Pay the first month, then stop.
Still think we live in the land of the free? Sweet land of liberty? From sea to shining sea?
I see. He voted for Obama. Sorry. He is getting EXACTLY what he wanted and EXACTLY what he deserves.Yeah, where were these people when the Pubs were shouting this from the rooftops?
Can "We The People" find no champion to defend us from this vain and odious tyrant?
BTW, have you tried buying ammunition lately?
Lots of bare shelves.
The cancer patient gets to keep his insurance:
The IRS is auditing him AND the guy who pointed him in the right direction to the ‘rule’ that forced the insurance company to keep his policy active (this is the person who wrote the article above). More people with cancer, etc. who are being cancelled should be aware of this rule and use it if they can - see below:
“This is the worst time to cancel someones coverage. And, that is precisely why Public Law 104-191 was written and passed by Congress in 1997. It was written to protect Americans from such a situation. I am writing this article not just to help Bill but to help all Americans who are suffering from an ongoing preexisting condition. If you are one of the 5 million Americans who have already received a policy termination letter or one of the 14 million Americans who will soon receive a letter, you need to print out Public Law 104-191 and highlight section 2742 and then contact an attorney. Or, if you have access to your governor as Bill does (his governor is the awesome Nikki Haley) contact your governor or state Attorney Generals office because your health insurer is violating a Federal law based on a posting in the Federal register that was not passed by Congress and as such does not trump an existing Federal law.”
Just a distant memory, but most Americans could care less. They truly believe that government can "solve" any "problem".
Even as recently as November 2013, most of those going to the polls were still stuck on tyranny.
tis the season to stockpile ammo. fa la la la la la la la la
..is the (cancer law) measure, statewide or federal?
I believe it’s federal (link in article I posted will take you straight to it):
HEALTH INSURANCE PORTABILITY AND ACCOUNTABILITY ACT OF 1996 (Public Law 104-191 104th Congress)
I believe there is an overabundance of Obunga followers who actually believed it WASN'T going to COST THEM any more than they were already paying, or that they may eventually be getting something for nothing.
Live and learn.
Is he still strong enough to swing a baseball bat?
“They truly believe that government can “solve” any “problem”.”..........
The gubmint IS the problem and are unable or unwilling to solve themselves. They are too busy pushing crap like odumbocare down our throats instead of doing the things that are REALLY needed. Certainly the U.S. health care system needed some “repair” but it did NOT need anything like odumbocare.
Where the *ell are Boehner and Cantor? Those girly men are focusing on amnesty when this guy should be used a poster child for 0bummercare!
In light of this “coincidence”, I’d like a leftist to explain how they
OBAMACARE DEATH PANEL PING
They are creating a serious situation.
If I were in this situation, cancer then an audit, the first irs agent through the front door gets one through the head.
Then just wait for the next one.
OBAMACARE DEATH PANEL PING
I wonder if it’s possible to just tell the IRS to take a hike. Tell them that they are targeting, persecuting a private citizen. Demand a justification for the audit, what evidence does the IRS have to prove just cause for an audit??
I will not submit, I will not comply with illegal orders!!
OBAMACARE DEATH PANEL PING
This will be covered by the MSM today.....
Stalin knew that blackmail could shut up much of his opposition. The others he arrested, tortured, and shot.
It appears we are still at the "first" stage.
Nazi Germany would be more accurate a description, comments, anyone?
He’s stage IV, what exactly does he have to lose in that scenario?
Just as in this analogy — ObamaFlowers. Pass it on — I received it in an email.
Obama Flowers - Have you ordered yours yet?
(Receptionist) Hello, Welcome to ObamaFlowers, My name is Trina. How can I help you?
(Customer) Hello, I received an email from Professional Flowers stating that my flower order has been canceled and I should go to your exchange to reorder it. I tried your website, but it seems like it is not working. So I am calling the 800 number.
(Receptionist) Yes, I am sorry about the website. It should be fixed by the end of November or maybe December. But I can help you.
(Customer) Thanks, I ordered a “Spring Bouquet” for our anniversary, and wanted it delivered to my wife.
(Receptionist Interrupting) Sir, “Spring Bouquets” do not meet our minimum standards, I will be happy to provide you with Red Roses.
(Customer) But I have always ordered “Spring Bouquets”, done it for years, my wife likes them.
(Receptionist) Roses are better, sir. I am sure your wife will love them.
(Customer) Well, how much are they?
(Receptionist) It depends sir, do you want our Bronze, Silver, Gold or Platinum package.
(Customer) What’s the difference?
(Receptionist) 6, 12,18 or 24 Red Roses.
(Customer) The Silver package may be okay, how much is it?
(Receptionist) It depends sir, what is you monthly income?
(Customer) What does that have to do with anything?
(Receptionist) I need that to determine your government flower subsidy, then I can determine how much your out of pocket cost will be. But if your income is below our minimums for a subsidy, then I can refer you to our FlowerAid department.
(Receptionist) Yes, Flowers are a Right, everyone has a right to flowers. So, if you can’t afford them, then the government will supply them free of charge.
(Customer) Who said they were a Right?
(Receptionist) Congress passed it, the President signed it and the Supreme Court found it Constitutional.
(Customer) Whoa.....I don’t remember seeing anything in the Constitution regarding Flowers as a Right.
(Receptionist) It is not really a Right in the Constitution, but ObamaFlowers is Constitutional because the Supreme Court Ruled it a “Tax”. Taxes are Constitutional. But we feel it is a Right.
(Customer) I don’t believe this...
(Receptionist) It’s the law of the land sir. Now, we anticipated most people would go for the Silver Package, so what is you monthly income sir?
(Customer) Forget it, I think I will forgo the flowers this year.
(Receptionist) In that case sir, I will still need your monthly income.
(Receptionist) To determine what your ‘non-participation’ cost would be.
(Customer) WHAT? Your can’t charge me for NOT buying flowers!
(Receptionist) It’s the law of the land, sir, approved by the Supreme Court. It’s $9.50 or 1% of your monthly income.....
(Customer)interrupting) This is ridiculous, I’ll pay the $9.50..
(Receptionist) Sir, it is the $9.50 or 1% of your monthly income, whichever is greater.
(Customer) ARE YOU KIDDING ME? What a ripoff!!
(Receptionist) Actually sir, it is a good deal. Next year it will be 2%.
(Customer) Look, I’m going to call my Congressman to find out what’s going on here. This is ridiculous. I’m not going to pay it.
(Receptionist) Sorry to hear that sir, that’s why I had the NSA track this call and obtain the make and model of the cell phone your are using.
(Customer) Why does the NSA need to know what kind of CELL PHONE I AM USING?
(Receptionist) So they get your GPS coordinates sir
(Door Bell rings followed immediately by a loud knock on the door)
(Receptionist) That would be the IRS sir. Thanks for calling ObamaFlowers, have a nice day...and God Bless America.
Most of them won’t learn.
Exactly, How many more are they creating?
