Obama administration wants to use IRS to hawk Obamacare

Image result for irs obamacareThe administration wants to use the IRS to hawk Obamacare, drawing fire from Republicans, who fear President Obama is turning the tax agency into part of his political operation by enlisting it in the health care effort.

Administration officials want to use IRS files to identify and contact the millions of Americans who have refused to sign up for insurance and are instead paying the “individual mandate” tax for going without coverage.

Officials say it makes sense to harness the IRS because the tax agency knows who hasn’t signed up and would be good candidates for outreach.

IRS officials insisted they wouldn’t share any private information with other agencies but said they didn’t see any problems in helping sell Obamacare by sending letters to holdouts.

“This particular mailing is consistent with our practices and the tax administration requirements set forth in the law,” the IRS said in a statement about its plans.

The IRS said it frequently makes tax filers aware of other government benefits, such as the earned income tax credit for low- and moderate-income workers.

How about us ALL requiring the IRS to justify it's own existence..., since that agency was NEVER ratified by the individual states? It is in fact an unlawful agency used to confiscate interest funds from the American people to pay the interest on the debts that are created by our so called government. The phrase "The full faith and credit of the United States", is the camouflaged phrase to hide the fact that WE, each individual one of us, actually are held responsible for the debts of the United States. That is why we can LEGALLY be incarcerated in FEMA camps for non payment. So that we can work our debt off "eventually", before we die.....................SOUNDS LIKE LEGALIZED MURDER TO ME.

        YOU COULD BE VERY RIGHT ABOUT WORKING OFF DEBT !!  WE NEED TO FIGURE OUT A WAY TO PUT AN END TO ALL OF THIS !!   VOTING TRUMP BUT WE NEED TO GET HIM IN OFFICE !!!!  YOU KNOW THE ELECTION WILL BE RIGGED AND WE MUST BE READY TO DEAL WITH THAT !!!!

If I understand Trump correctly Obamacare is dead and Trump wants to bury it!

        YES AND THIS IS WHY THEY WANT TO LET THE IRS INTO IT !!  WE WILL REALLY GET OUR POCKET CLEANED WITH THE IRS IN TO IT !!

VOTE TRUMP

They're obviously at his disposal.............Corruption Reigns.

As a free citizen of this country, I should not have to sign up for any healthcare if I don't want to.  I also should not have to pay a penalty tax if I choose not to sign up.  It is none of the government's business. 

Amen, but the milk is spilled, unless, we rein in this "Reign of Terror", it may be a lot more than our Healthcare we'll lose. Vote, campaign, donate, talk to Friends and Relatives, get Yard Signs out, Bumper Stickers, Trump cannot win without all of us, let's do it!!!

The IRS needs to be dismantled.  Only one person could get this job done.  Donald Trump!

IRS cannot perform their prescribed functions without resorting to FEAR TACTICS!  If THEY get to selling Obumbum Care, they will do the SAME THING!  ('Sign up or we'll make you sorry you didn't)  IRS needs to GO AWAY!  And the sooner the better!

        THIS WILL TURN OUT VERY BAD !!!!  THE IRS WILL FIGURE OUT HOW USE THIS AGAINST THE PEOPLE AND PUSH OTHERS INTO PAYING OR FIGURE OUT HOW TO MAKE THEM PAY MORE !!!!

‘Breaking: Supreme Court Sides With Trump Over Sanctuary Cities In Deportation Case

 The US Supreme Court sided with President Trump over sanctuary cities today in a 5-4 decision.

The court ruled the government has the power to detain people who are facing deportation because of the crimes they committed.

Chief Justice John Roberts joined justices Alito, Thomas, Gorsuch and Kavanaugh in the majority.

Bloomberg.com reported:

A divided U.S. Supreme Court bolstered the government’s power to detain people who are facing deportation because of crimes they committed, siding with the Trump administration in a clash with implications for so-called sanctuary cities.

The case focused on non-citizen legal residents who serve a criminal sentence, get released and later are arrested by federal immigration agents.

The 5-4 ruling Tuesday said those people aren’t entitled to a bond hearing, and the possibility of re-release, while the Homeland Security Department presses its case for deportation. The ruling reversed a decision by the San Francisco-based 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.

In announcing the decision from the bench, Justice Samuel Alito said the lower court had made a “policy judgment” using reasoning that “makes a mockery” of the federal immigration laws…

…Chief Justice John Roberts and Justices Clarence Thomas, Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh joined the majority, but they splintered in their reasoning.

Thomas and Gorsuch didn’t agree with all of Alito’s opinion. They said courts lack power to consider issues involving the detention of non-citizens until those people are facing a deportation order.
