IRS wants 4,000 new agents, $300 million budget to enforce Obamacare
March 31, 2012
(NaturalNews) More than quadrupling an estimate it put forth last year for new agents (http://dailycaller.com), the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) now says that it will need more than 4,000 new agents to enforce the provisions of the Affordable Care Act (ACA), also known as Obamacare. And in addition to these new agents, the IRS is also asking for more than $300 million in new funding to help fortify the infrastructure it will supposedly need to unconstitutionally force Americans to purchase government healthcare.
The constitutionality of Obamacare is currently being reviewed by the U.S. Supreme Court, and yet the IRS is already acting as though the overhaul is definitive law. According to IRS budget requests, the agency says it needs a massive cash infusion to “continue the development of new systems and modifications of existing systems required to support new tax credits.” But in reality, this money will more than likely be used to spy on Americans and fine them for failing to purchase adequate health coverage.
“Health reform’s insurance mandate says if you do not have ‘adequate’ insurance, you’ll have to pay a fine as part of your tax return,” writes Elizabeth MacDonald for FOX Business (http://www.foxbusiness.com). “If your business doesn’t provide ‘affordable’ coverage, you’ll have to pay a fine to the IRS, too, as part of your tax return filing.”
