IRS looking to hire thousands of armed tax agents to enforce health care laws
The Daily Caller ^ | 3/22/10 | Jonathan Strong

Posted on 03/22/2010 9:01:11 PM PDT by Nachum

Top IRS officials have been working with Democrats on Capitol Hill to determine how the agency will enforce President Obama’s new health care law. Republican lawmakers estimate the legislation will require the hiring of many thousands of new tax enforcement agents.

While it’s still not known exactly how many will be hired, here’s what’s clear: Under the new law, the IRS is required to fine taxpayers thousands of dollars if they do not purchase health insurance. In order for the government to enforce compliance, tax authorities will need information, for the first time, about people’s health care. Collecting that data will require more IRS personnel.

Consider what has happened in Massachusetts, which passed a similar health care bill in 2006. To enforce the individual mandate, the state’s Department of Revenue asks filers what kind of insurance they have, as well as details like whether their “sincerely held religious beliefs” are moving them to petition for an exemption from the requirement.

Gee! Maybe I can get a job! But no, I’d collect $0 from people, so I’d probably get fired.

Yes it was that "civilian security force that is as powerful and well funded as the military" B O kept referring to in his campaign but wouldn't explain...little did we know it was going to be the teeth behind the collection of all the new taxes and fees...all is going perfectly according to plan....

I read the article, and it says nothing about hiring “armed” agents.

In any publication, the body of the story and the headline are written by different people, so sometimes mistakes are made. However, this appears to be a BIG error, and very misleading.

"...armed tax agents to enforce health care laws"

Kind of ironic that they will shoot you if you don't buy health insurance. The good news is that a gun shot is a preexisting condition , so you will be able to buy the appropriate policy at the hospital

I am not convinced that Americans have the will to use theirs. Show me. They are too consumed with paying the cable/imternet bill and getting up to go to work. So, we'll have to see about that, won't we?

I was thinking about "Brazil" last night after this crapfest was voted on. One of my favorite movies, but a future we will soon be living, I'm afraid.

Yeah, it's been absolutely insane to watch this unfold before our very eyes. A real nightmare in the daytime.

THX-1138 was pretty decent too, as far as flicks in the “dystopian future” genre (many border on the heavy cheese-factor, i.e. “Logan's Run”).

The founding fathers DETESTED standing armies that could be used against the people!

That’s why they provided for a Navy to guard the shores, but relied on the militia, which were the people themselves, to defend against invasion.
