Obamacare’s Next Challenge: IRS Verification
The Fiscal Times ^ | April 4, 2014 | Brianna Ehley

Now that the open enrollment period has come to a close, the next challenge for Obamacare lies with the cash-strapped Internal Revenue Service, which is tasked with enforcing a handful of new provisions under the president’s healthcare law—including issuing penalties to Americans without health insurance.

Part of ObamaCare was the hiring of an additional 10,000 IRS agents.

What is happening here and now sounds like double billing.

They will tackle this like they have all else. First you determine who is Tea Party and make sure that penalty is applied.

So easy, even an Obama could do it.

....the next challenge for Obamacare lies with the cash-strapped IRS, tasked with enforcing contrived O/Care provisions—---like issuing penalties to Americans who were faced w/ botched enrollment sites and could not get health insurance.....

This is not a problem----when you're a practiced con artist. Remember, none of the political flim-flam WRT skyrocketing premiums/deductibles/co-pays, nationalizing 1/6 of the economy, the ominous IPAB's, was ever mentioned when Democrats marched in lockstep to foist the O/Care scam on Americans.

The con artists dreamed up a bunch of oily phrases that would put Madoff to shame:

<><>O/Care means "freedom"---not being tied to an employer for health care.

<><>Millenials subsidizing oldsters is "Individual shared responsibility".... something Madoff said when he was screwing his investors.

<><>and the unforgettable "we'll aggregate the numbers" to nail employers forced to downsize to escape onerous O/Care mandates).

===========================================

HOW IT WAS SUPPOSED TO WORK Once upon a time in Obama's Utopia, tolerant compassionate Democrats kindly conferred cheap affordable universal healthcare on us American who are total scum.

Even though we are all rank cowards on the subect of race, for the first time, we undeserving misogynist, racist, homophobic Americans were going to have our health needs taken care of by our benevolent government.

Kindly Democrats (who despise the 1%) conferred cheap health benefits on all of us Americans, not just those intolerant greedsters with money (who create all the jobs that make the economy run smoothly).

Benevolent Democrats in Capitol Hill offices dreamed of millions of formerly uninsured Americans, and their illegal brethren, marching in lockstep to the polls to vote for kindly Democrats---the givers of all good governmental things.

Kindly benevolent Democrats would sail to electoral victory b/c they stood up to the evil insurance-medical-industrial complex on behalf of us cowardly, undeserving Americans.

Peace, happiness and universal well-being would reign over the land.

And we'd all live happily ever after.....even with astronomical deductibles, drug rationing, and I-PAB Death Panels looming in the distance.

How very American...as interpreted and applied by a duplicitous Indonesian islamist.

But that’s the American way these days. islamists destroy with hijacked airliners, and America elects an islamist to the presidency.

Low information voters, indeed. I don’t think we’ll ever recover.

Way to simplify the lists that will be generated: Pick out all known Republicans or conservatives that show up on some kind of delinquency in acquiring “health insurance”, then concentrate fire upon them, in highly publicized instances.

This is especially good for those of whom are compelled to make quarterly payments on expected income, as they shall almost always send in MORE than the estimated income tax for the quarter, and consequently would be vulnerable to having their returns audited and a fine taken out of their expected refund when filing their taxes for the next season.

Of course, if the person has “voted right”, or made contributions to the candidates favored by the Current Regime, there would be endless deferrals, or even exoneration, of any action upon irregularities in the tax returns.

But they already do this sort of “selective reviews”.

So the IRS is going to penalize me because I couldn’t afford his insurance because HE killed the economy and took away my means to earn it. Yeah thinks a$$hole...

Probably. I have no illusions that the IRS operates in a non political mode anymore. The Obama admin has made it into an agency that is primarily used to punish detractors of the regime.

So sad and pathetic how we have all allowed this to happen with hardly any fight.

The simple solution is to charge everyone the penalty, then make them provide proof of insurance to claim a refund.

With so-called ‘conservatives’ savaging Tea Partiers who, if elected, will likely become these same ‘conservatives’, just like the last bunch, with the absolutely slimmest exeptions, such as Trey Gowdy & Ted Cruz perhaps. But is that enough?

The IRS is “cash strapped”?? How stupid does this writer think we are? This government prints money like no other in history. Obastard has added $5 TRILLION to the debt in five years. Just grab some of that to pay your thug-enforcers, Obama.

I wish, I wish, I wish! But those two are very dug in. They have a control over the party funds and support mechanisms that will be very hard to shake. Do you seriously thing that either could be primaried or voted out?

I laughed out loud at ‘cash strapped’. We should be so lucky.
