Obama And His Expanding the IRS To Be His Obamacare Auditing and ENFORCEMENT Arm


ObamaCare Expands IRS to Become Health Care Auditing and Enforcement Arm on All Americans

Michigan Rep. Dave Camp explaining that the new ObamaCare Law that will be signed into law tomorrow by Communist Obama will result in the IRS becoming involved in the Health Care of Americans.

Because the new law mandates all Americans to buy Health Insurance, the IRS will be the audit and enforcement arm for ObamaCare. According to Camp, people who do not buy Health Insurance as defined by the Federal Government will be taxed, not fined. Camp said even if a person is without insurance for one month, they will pay 1/12th of the tax levied for not being in compliance.

To know who has not had insurance, Camp said the IRS will have to perform an audit of every American every year to determine if they have had Health Insurance that meets the definition of the Government and will then enforce the law by taxing those who have not complied. This audit and enforcement function is estimated to cost $10 billion in the first 10 years, and will likely add an additional 16,000 IRS employees.


The IRS would be in charge of verifying that every American taxpayer has obtained acceptable health coverage for every month of the year. If the IRS determines that a taxpayer lacks acceptable insurance for even a single month, then the IRS would impose a new tax on that taxpayer, even auditing the taxpayer and could assess interest and penalties on top of the tax.

This is an unprecedented new role for the IRS – one that will inject the federal government even further into the lives of American families. The bill also gives the IRS some new "teeth" to strike fear in the hears of the people with, including:

* IRS agents verify if you have “acceptable” health care coverage

* IRS has the authority to fine you up to $2,250 or 2 percent of your income (whichever is greater) for failure to prove that you have purchased “minimum essential coverage”

* IRS can confiscate your tax refund

* IRS audits are likely to increase

* IRS will need up to $10 billion to administer the new health care program this decade

* IRS may need to hire as many as 16,500 additional auditors, agents and other employees to investigate and collect billions in new taxes from Americans Nearly half of all these new individual mandate taxes will be paid by Americans earning less than 300 percent of poverty ($66,150 for a family of four). There goes that less than $250,000 thing the POTUS promised.

And then the Pièce de résistance:

The IRS is barred from imposing these taxes and penalties on illegal immigrants

Lets put it a different way, if you are here legally you are screwed, but if you are here illegally, hey don't worry, be happy.

The IRS' new powers will simply be another loss of freedom from the folks who brought you "hope and change."

The Blind leading the Unwilling to do the unnecessary. Is it any wonder why the government can't tie its own shoes. Without a committee first investigating the shoe lace company.

Now we will have someone between us and our Doctor, and they will be the deciding factor on whether YOU get a treatment that could possibly save your life.

This is the beginning of worst things to come.

This one plan is the single greatest loss of freedom in US history. Honest, hard working Americans can potentially become criminals if they don't purchase a minimal amount of health insurance.

Using the IRS as the enforcing agency for this health plan is just a further poke in the eye. A friend of mine remarked last night that the news claimed ACORN was folding up and going out of business. That was the good news. The bad news was, how many of the ACORN people will be hired for the 16,000 IRS slots?

This is pure socialism/Marxism. Almost a dictatorship. This plan needs to be reversed. Maybe by SCOTUS. If it stands I am afraid it will be joined by other plans such as cap and trade and America wll no longer be a constitutional republic. We have to fight this. My hope is the states will evoke the Tenth Amendment and stand tall against the Federal govt.

Tom, well said, all you said is so true.

"This one plan is the single greatest loss of freedom in US history."
