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 !!!!

Boom! President Trump Issues Warning To Deep State: “You’ll Be Surprised At The Names Of People Involved In The Corruption”

President Trump joined Judge Jeanine Pirro by phone last night for an extensive interview.

The president sounded very upbeat in the interview and hopeful that Democrats will act soon on border security and end to their government shutdown. “We’re doing very well with China. We’re doing well with North Korea. You know I was dealt a very tough hand.” On the shutdown President Trump said, “They think it’s politics. I think it’s very bad politics. I think the country wants to have protection at the border.”

The President also discussed the ongoing deep state witch hunt of him and his campaign and administration. Judge Pirro then asked the president if he has ever been actively working in Russia. “I think it’s the most insulting thing I’ve ever been asked. I think it’s the most insulting thing I’ve ever had written. And if you read the article you see that they found absolutely nothing.”

President Trump took a swipe at Jeff Bezos, “Washington Post that’s basically the lobbyist for Amazon. He uses that, Bezos has bigger problems than anybody right now.”

Then President Trump dropped this bomb. “The whole Russia thing is a hoax… Everybody knows it… Wait til you see how it all ends up. You watch. McCabe, Lisa Page, Strzok.

You watch. Including some others I should not name. I better not. You watch. It would make front page news if I do. You’ll be surprised at the names of the people involved in the corruption.“

Now THAT is some real news!
