Skip to comments.Passage of Obama health care plan will mean new jobs (IRS Jobs)
Posted on 03/21/2010 7:04:12 PM PDT by GOP_Lady
A report on the New York Post website yesterday reports the IRS may hire as many as 16,000 new agents. This is alleged by Republicans on The House Ways and Means committee. Under the Obama plan the IRS would be given new powers of enforcement. The IRS will be given the charge to see every American has acceptable health insurance. If your plan is not acceptable the IRS may be able to withhold your income tax return and or levy fines due to your non compliance. Everyone under the Obama plan will be required to purchase insurance. If you cant pay for the insurance the subsidy to purchase will come through the IRS in the form of a tax credit. Under one version of the plan the money will come from a Health Choices Administration. Do we really want the IRS involved in assessing our health care and possibly releasing our tax information to other agencies?
Both options create legions of new federal employees. The Federal Government has created lots of jobs during this recession and I have written about why that kills private sector jobs . Federal jobs pay wages and benefits higher than the private sector and are paid for by tax payers. In earlier articles I have already written about the drag of government employment on the private economy.

More jobs for government bureaucrats.
yes....the makings of a real gustapo
Yeah, at the unemployment benefits division of your state's Department of Labor office.
Don’t forget Obama’s brownshirts.
How is hiring 16000 irs agents going to reduce our health costs?
Seeds for a new civil war.
Since Fed employees do NOT pay taxes...where do they think they are going to get the money?
Outside of the government, jobs, I think Pawn Shops and Pay Day Loan places will be doing pretty good
Wow, who knew we’d be paying for other people’s insurance premiums? Snicker...
Fed employees don’t pay taxes? Really?
Undertakers are going to be in heavy demand also.
Just wait until the IRSS starts dipping into people’s personal checking accounts to abscond with the funds to pay for a policy they demand that person take out.
I wonder if they budgeted for as many new Secret Service personnel as they did IRS agents.
You forgot to add the laugh alert.
And how many health care workers will lose theirs? An estimated 1m eventually.
