In about 9 months, Americans will come face to face with ObamaCare. It will happen when they sit down to fill out their tax returns. My guess is that most people will be angry.
ObamaCare and the IRS will work hand in hand in the implementation of the law, as Byron York points out today:
"A look at the text of the health care law reveals that much of it consists of amending the Internal Revenue Code to give the IRS more power. When Obamacare goes fully into effect in January, every American will have to prove to the IRS that he or she has "qualifying" health coverage, meaning coverage with a list of features approved by Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius. That will be done by submitting a document to the IRS, something like a W-2, to confirm coverage."
There is more. In simple language, the IRS will be the manager of the new law.
The IRS will ask you questions that you thought heretofore belonged in the very confidential relationship between doctors and patients.
The IRS will also need to hear about "raises" and changes in your financial condition.
Didn't a bunch of colonists throw tea in the harbor the last time that something like this happenned?
The IRS and HHS will monitor the people through a "database," or a huge intrusion into your personal, financial and health information.
Again, my good guess is that most Democrats who voted for this monstrosity will shut off their phones next spring. They won't like what voters are telling them.

This is the reason behind the push for gun control THIS year.
America is finished. We are now a communists controlled Country with King Obama as dictator. Make no doubt about that. Nothing to stop him.
I propose that the IRS be disabled whilst this is all being sorted out. Make everyone-EVERYONE- pay Quarterly Estimated taxes, and send a check to the irs. Result? Taxrevolt!
I see an audit in my future if filing taxes requires answering too many personal questions.
It is about time that people and businesses stop filing their tax forms. A good 50 million or so tax payers that just say no is a good start. They can’t throw everyone in jail.
Then turn in your Freeper card and off yourself. Spare us the demoralizing spew.
A Rostenkowski moment????
The author is wrong. The new tax for not having health coverage will first appear on the 2014 tax return which most people will file in the spring of 2015.
I am a tax preparer for one of the largest tax preparation companies. At least half of my clients had not heard about this tax. I could tell by their reaction that many of them voted for Obozo. I stay away from politics with my clients but I could tell that many were having second thoughts about Obamacare.
Why is this man smirking?
AuschwitzCare aka ObamaCare
(The Limbaugh Theorem in practice)
Unfortunately, the mid term elections wll occur before that.
If it had occurred a year earlier, the 2014 elections would be a bloodletting.
Then it should bode well for the 2016 elections. And if Hillary is the Dem nominee, the GOP can pin ObamaCare on her. After all, she came up with the idea (HillaryCare) before Obama was ever on the scene.
“They cant throw everyone in jail.”
Nope. At that point the summary executions will start.
Your clients will find that the fine for not having healthcare coverage is just about what the average tax refund is now.
That’s one of the reasons the IRS is doing Healthcare work.
Everything now costs double what it cost five years ago and nary a peep, from bananas to toilet paper.
I honestly do not know what it would take at this point.
But, if I am not mistaken, people will start seeing the premiums go up in Jan 14. That will generate some backlash.
Sometimes I wonder if we are finished as a country and when you look out at the landscape, it seems hopeless. Then I think about how Washington must have felt in those cold winters when his men were cold, starving, not paid, and the morale was low.
I never get why some Freepers think BHO is some sort of God. Watching these scandals and his handling of them tells me his regime won’t be taken down in one fell swoop, but more of a death by a thousand cuts. There are more shoes to fall. It’s darkest before the dawn.
Just make sure you max out the deductions on your W-4 first.
