The health care reform bill to signed Tuesday 3/23/10 by the President would give the IRS a new mandate to enforce some of the initiative's key provisions but apparently not the means to do so. Under the Senate bill approved Sunday by the House, the Internal Revenue Service would be called on to ensure Americans are obtaining health care insurance and businesses are offering it, or else they could face fines or imprisonment. you know the same punishments that communist countries do. However, the derelict welfare society will receive subsidies to help pay for insurance like they already did before this unconstitutional bill was passed.
The emphasis is on incentives for healthy people to buy insurance, thereby spreading the risk of older, less healthy people over a broader pool of customers. For those earning between $22,050 and $88,200, there are tax credits for health insurance premiums. In addition, individuals initially face fines of up to $750 for not buying in; businesses would face fines of up to $3,000. The government may face a gun in the mouth if the people choose to say, "Go Fuck Yourself". This is why the IRS has purchased Remington shotguns for their door to door collections division.
It will cost the IRS $5 billion to $10 billion over 10 years to handle the new workload, according to a March 11 estimate by the Congressional Budget Office. However, the divine wisdom of these never have Owned a business before politicians can just print more money and everything is OK. So if that is the case then why do they still tax us? But the Senate bill doesn’t provide any funding for the expansion of the IRS, and it virtually ties the hands of the IRS to collect fees on individuals and businesses who don’t buy health insurance. More over, many IRS workers would refuse to try to collect taxes from real Americans out of fear for receiving a gun in the mouth or having a wiffle ball bat shoved up their ass.
“The use of liens and seizures otherwise authorized for collection of taxes does not apply to the collection of this penalty," according to the non-partisan Joint Committee on Taxation. "Non-compliance with the personal responsibility requirement to have health coverage is not subject to criminal or civil penalties under the code and interest does not accrue for failure to pay such assessments in a timely manner." This is just one interpretation of the bill seeming harmless however, these people make up the rules as they go and will interpret the complete opposite when it matters to having their coffers filled. When was the last time you knew of the government not getting paid?
That means there’s virtually nothing the IRS can do to enforce the fines in the legislation, forcing the tax man to rely on the "consciences" of taxpayers or to skim off any federal benefits, tax credits or refunds they have coming to them. If this is really true which it is not, it would be another useless bill passed by an ever growing useless government body. However, don't count on yourself getting off scott free! If you're due a refund or some other federal benefit, and you didn't obtain qualified insurance, your refund or benefit will be used to pay your government health care insurance and whatever penalties you incurred according to Bill Ahearn, director of policy and communications for the Tax Foundation. That and they will tack it on your income taxes at the end of the year.
