ObamaCare Clusterfuck: Administration requests $440 million for IRS enforcement
President Obama’s budget proposal seeks a major funding boost to bolster the IRS, which will enforce his health care law’s individual mandate, and to set up insurance exchanges.
The 2014 plan, submitted to Congress on Wednesday, requests $440 million to help the Internal Revenue Service get ready.
The agency must process tax credits for the exchanges and will assess tax penalties on those who fail to acquire insurance. Both of those provisions are slated to begin in 2014.
I agree that taxes are the price we pay for civilization. But I don't agree that tax credits are the price we should pay for ObamaCare.
If we were truly civilized, we'd have single payer, which would save at least $400 billion a year and thousands of lives. And wouldn't have to spend $440 on the IRS that we could spend on, ya know, actually delivering care.
