Posted on 07/26/2013 11:12:26 AM PDT by drewh
Every other story about Obamas union pals and government employees demanding waivers from the health-care disaster they supported pale in comparison to this one. ObamaCare is all about expanding the power of the Internal Revenue Service thats the only promise it has actually kept, the only part of the 11,000-page program thats actually working the way it was supposed to. The IRS became as important to health care as any doctor or hospital when ObamaCare was passed, because they are its enforcement arm, and like all central planning schemes, theres a huge amount of enforcing to be done.
And IRS employees want no part of the program theyll be enforcing on everyone else. They know better than to get involved in this train wreck. They like their existing plan, and unlike you, they think they should be able to keep their plan. All thats left now is for the navigators hired to shepherd confused Americans through the paperwork maze to unionize and demand a waiver from ObamaCare. Im not sure if thats sarcasm or prophecy.
From the Washington Examiner:
National Taxpayer Employee Union officials are urging members to write their congressional representatives in opposition to receiving coverage through President Obamas health care law.
The union leaders are providing members with a form letter to send to the congressmen that says I am very concerned about legislation that has been introduced by Congressman Dave Camp to push federal employees out of the Federal Employees Health Benefits Program and into the insurance exchanges established under the Affordable Care Act.
The NTEU represents 150,000 federal employees overall, including most of the nearly 100,000 IRS workers.

It’s all a communist plot. Literally.
well you helped rig the last Presidential election so now you must face the consequences
“Repeal it altogether or we quit paying taxes” would be the magic words here.
“Repeal it altogether or we quit working and then you get no income tax from us” is good too.
But this is no longer the land of the free and the home of the brave, is it?
Obamacare for thee but not for me.
Many of the wealthiest zip codes in the country are clustered around Washington DC. Government workers expect the best and usually get it (on our dime) and they sure as hell don’t want the ObamaCare. I suspect they’ll find a way to get the best for themselves... again.
Typical leftist hypocrisy and double-standards.
They want to enforce and inflict this crap legislation on the rest of us (taxes for thee but not for me is their mantra)...
but they want to be considered “special” and exempt from following the same laws that they forced upon us.
Pardon my language....but F*CK them.
Exactly how do yo stop paying taxes when they withhold the money up front? Your return simply tries and negate your obligation.
Quit working. Under a certain threshold you don't have to pay income tax, but you can still live on that income.
Yes, it's a hardship. But Valley Forge it ain't.
Yeah but just read an article by Krugman claiming Obamacare will work...lol
Greatest scandal of the day! Laughing! Oh, the irony!
With the IRS in charge of Taxation and Obamacare, the wealth and health of the LEGAL citizens of the United States of America will become totally controlled by corrupt politicians at the Federal level, IOW, we will be a Communist State.
We need to create as much civil disobedience as legally possible, because our sorry Congressional RINOs will not Impeach Obama for violations of the US Constitution, Anti-Trust Laws, Cowardice in the face of the enemy, or Dereliction of Duty.
Commie Obama will succeed ONLY if the RINO enablers allow him to do so.
Communist Tyrant B. Hussein Obama has no intention of allowing the US Congress to interfere with Obamas selective implementation of the Anti-Trust violations of Obamacare.
Commie Obama will use HIS Bureaus, HIS Executive Orders, and HIS Military to preserve, protect and defend his Commune-Style, Communist Obamacare in order to insure the complete financial destruction of The United States of America, and thus fulfill his first Inaugural vow to Fundamentally change the United States of America.
Keep in mind, the average government worker is really no different than many of us. His politics may inform his decision making at the poles, but when it come to having his sacred cow gored they will be upset and you ask what are the sacred cows of the government employee,’benefits, paychecks, and as little work as possible’. So when congress reaches an impasse over the budget, who still gets there paycheck, benefits, and doesn’t have to show up for work. A real government shutdown should mean no check are cut for work not done!
