Skip to comments.Team Obama to use IRS data to pressure some Americans into Obamacare
Posted on 06/21/2016 3:13:13 PM PDT by PROCON
The Obama administration said Tuesday it will herd uninsured Americans into Obamacare plans this fall by targeting young adults and working with the IRS to root out people who paid a penalty for lacking coverage last year.
Officials said people who were fined under the Affordable Care Acts individual mandate can expect to receive a paper notice that explains their coverage options on the laws web-based exchanges. The state of Massachusetts is already working with its revenue agency to locate the uninsured, and the Obama administration said those efforts appeared to be working.
The Health and Human Services Department said nearly half or 45 percent of people who paid the mandate tax or claimed an exemption from it for the 2014 tax year were under age 35, even though the age group accounted for only 30 percent of all taxpayers overall.

They'll be made an offer they can't refuse.
President Obama is trying to place his signature
domestic achievement biggest failure among many on surer footing before he leaves office in January.
Message from Obama: Join up or you’ll spend so much time with the IRS that you will need health insurance.
the fascist dictatorship rolls on... (and as usual, the GOP-e sold out Congress crooks do nothing to help or protect the American people or our constiutional rights...)
Using IRS data to target a group that didn't do what you wanted them to do. Gee, that's never happened before.
A big government can force you to do anything it wants for political purposes

I’m really concerned that Republicans have really folded and have no real intention of ridding the US of Obamacare. I swear I don’t see why the entire industry couldn’t shift back to the model from 10 years ago and even improve upon it. Shouldn’t be that difficult except for all the liberals and social justice warrior types having temper tantrums projecting their evil demonic apparitions on everyone and thing they sense is an enemy. Trump could get it repealed with a simple majority as it was passed and needs to state this now repeatedly over and over. Socialized medicine is the backbone of a socialist country so the critters won’t give it up without a serious fight. The fight needs to be brought and not just forgotten about in the avalanche of issues.
If Hillary is in—it will be so. They may well rig the ballot boxes so the witch will win. We better be ready for Queen Hillary and her tyrannical rule. She may well be president for life. Donald Trump will be assassinated and she will beat Mitt Romney—or Marco Rubio. We better be ready.
When My Elected Congressman and Senators SIGN UP FOR OBAMACARE, Call me. Until then, FU&K OFF.
It’s not a tax, it’s not a penalty, it’s an “individual shared responsibility payment”.
When will these journalists ever get that right?
As I heard some one say recently - the government no longer needs the people.
And that's when it gets frightening!
Trump needs to have a big lead (over ten percent maybe?) in order to overcome all the illegal and deceased voters Hillary’s got lined up
many of whom apparently vote several times, too...
now that many illegals have been given drivers’ licenses, how will they be stopped from voting (also many will just vote absentee to escape any questions or scrutiny... even if the R’s can muster poll watchers which is questionable to begin with)
there will be millions of iillegal votes for Hillary in the computer before a single Trump voter arrives at the polls, imho
Data mining tax returns for private insurance companies has begun. This will not end well.
You have to take some action first before you can fold. Obamacare doesn’t apply to them so they don’t really care.
Until such time as all the laws Congress passes apply to them as they do to the rest of we commoners, they DON’T CARE.
Good luck with that, 0bungles. I didn’t pay your stinking penalty/tax/fine/whatever you’re calling it today so you’re just s!#$ out of luck finding me.
“”it will herd uninsured Americans into Obamacare plans this fall by targeting young adults”””
So they want these typically healthy young people to buy insurance they don’t want or need and to pay for it out of their part time minimum wage job. Good luck with that.
“Im really concerned that Republicans have really folded and have no real intention of ridding the US of Obamacare.”
Hint- They agree with it too.
