THE IRS SCANDAL AND OBAMACARE: Yes, Your Private Health Information Will Be Used Against You

When even The Washington Post takes notice of the Nixonian machinations, you know there's real trouble in D.C.

The IRS admits to targeting conservative groups for additional review and laughably claims the witch hunt wasn’t “motivated by political bias.” What will its math-challenged spokeswoman Lois Lerner say about allegations that the IRS gave “extra-special attention to the tax-exempt status of some Jewish groups for political reason"?

In fact, the IRS is (or was) targeting "groups [focused on] ‘educating on the Constitution and Bill of Rights,’" according to Prof. William A. Jacobson.

So what could possibly go wrong with the IRS administering all of your health care data?

When Obamacare’s individual mandate takes effect in 2014, all Americans who file income tax returns must complete an additional IRS tax form... The new form will require disclosure of a taxpayer’s personal identifying health information in order to determine compliance with the Affordable Care Act’s individual mandate.

As confirmed by IRS testimony to the tax-writing House Committee on Ways and Means, “taxpayers will file their tax returns reporting their health insurance coverage, and/or making a payment”.

...Simply put, there is no way for the IRS to enforce Obamacare’s individual mandate without such an invasive reporting scheme... As a service to the public, Americans for Tax Reform has released a projected version of this tax form to help families and tax specialists prepare for this additional filing requirement. Taxpayers may view the projected IRS form at On the form, lines 3-4 show where taxpayers will disclose their personal health ID information.

I've said it before and I'll say it again. Obamacare isn't about health care. It's about control over you and I.

Your health care data will be used to punish you. It will be used against you. It will be leaked into the public record if you oppose the government. Government-run health care is tyrannical.

Had we a Speaker of the House who was not either an abject coward or being blackmailed (a very good possibility), he or she'd be dragging these lunatics before Congress and driving them out of government --if not starting the process of putting them in prison.

I say we ALL enter the words F---You on every line. What are they going to do...jail all of us? Fine: 3 square meals a day, free health care, yada yada yada!

It's " you and me" not "you and I". Would you say "control over I"? I didn't think so

I am dead set against Obamacare. However, do you expect anyone to take this seriously? "Form OBMA"? And the term "Obamacare" (instead of "Affordable Care Act") on an IRS form? While it may wind up being true, this document is BS.

To spy on your political adversary with the IRS is about as bad as it gets on abuse of power. To throw Jews in there should make it Impeachable as they is even beyond.
Add on top gunrunning into Mexico and through an embassy resulting in deaths and you have a busy 2nd term.

When I receive this form from the IRS, I'm going to use a big black sharpie and I'm going to cordially invite them to attempt self impregnation.
No amount of 'penalties' no amount of cajoling, threats or taxations will make me fill it out and sign my name.

increase catbackIf Roe V Wade allows for mothers to murder their babies under the guise of "privacy" - that this health care decision is between the woman and her doctor- then how does ACA manage to break through that privacy?
IMO- this means either Roe needs to be abandoned so as to support ACA, or ACA has to respect Roe, which eliminates the governments ability to pry into individual health matters.
For the life of me I cant understand why opponents of ACA have not hammered this, and used Roe as precedent.

I believe the first indication that the form may not be official is the huge circle in the center that states" this is not an IRS form".

They won't arrest you or Fine you for non-compliance;you just won't get yout meds,treatment,or Dr. visits. You'll likely be moved up the list of "numbers" who will not be treated later on,as the alleged "death Panel" will be informed that you were "uncooperative,and thus are not a productive "number". At least,that's what I expect will happen to ME.

"Shared Responsibility Payment for Not Maintaining Minimum Essential Coverage" is the enabler. And enforcing that gives the IRS a free hand to do anything it wants regarding your medical benefits.

I've shared this document with trusted pros in the insurance and financial sectors and they are absolutely shocked at what it portends.

For one, absolutely no reliable safe-harbor -- as everything is base on "community" ratings and averages, you may not know until it is too late that you have failed to buy "too little" coverage.

But don't take my word for it -- read every last word of this official IRS documents and then come back and tell me what you think.
