Letter: We have reasons to fear the IRS and 'Obamacare'

Published: Wednesday, June 26, 2013 at 07:21 PM.

The Affordable Care Act passed several years ago, also known as Obamacare, will begin in January 2014.

This health insurance program will be run by the IRS. The same IRS that targets people for their political beliefs. The same IRS that wastes millions of taxpayers’ money on parties. The same IRS that employees lie while under oath, don’t know or just refuse to answer questions given to them by Congress. The same IRS that gave out 90 million dollars in bonuses last year to their management, that know nothing about what is going with their job.

Under Obamacare, the IRS is the enforcer and is responsible for collecting on medical bills. We are all familiar with IRS collections tactics, which will be implemented now on medical bills! In other words if you don’t pay the bill on time, the IRS can seize your business, your home, your car, your boat, your savings, your investments, your furniture, your jewelry, garnish your pay, ruin your credit rating, even put you in jail.

So for all you folks who think Obamacare is a great idea, wait till the IRS comes collecting at your door right after you get out of the hospital!
