With open-open-open enrollment finally over, the time has come for Americans to understand the wrath of not signing up for what was nearly impossible to sign up for.
Despite the IRS’ current trouble, don’t think they won’t make examples of a few lucky conservatives who decided to forego ObamaCare. It’s time to pass a kidney stone!
As Fox News reported:
With the ObamaCare enrollment deadline in the rearview for most, the IRS is preparing for the next step — tracking and penalizing those who choose not, or cannot afford, to buy approved health insurance.
How aggressive the agency will be in pursuing those fines, though, is an open question. The IRS already is under fire over last year’s political targeting scandal and talk of harsh fines on the millions who still do not have insurance is a touchy subject in an election year.
The agency says it is still drafting final tax forms and hiring staff to carry out the task, and is offering some details about how it will collect the penalties.
For most, the penalty will not apply until early next year. Those who failed to purchase insurance by the March 31, 2014, deadline — and are not exempt, or did not get an extension — must inform the government on their tax forms in early 2015.
The IRS is using a trust-but-verify approach.
Trust-but-verify that you have their money!
ObamaCare has no choice but to take a heavy-handed approach to collections, in order to scare people. The IRS needs people to understand that Obama was serious when he said everybody wants ObamaCare.
Obama tried coaxing the masses using Hollyweird beauties, the parents of entertainers, and finally sports figures.
Obama did everything but offer fried chicken and watermelon to blacks, and taco and enchiladas (and amnesty!) to Mexicans to get the numbers where he needed them. And they were still fraudulent.
The point is, one way or another ObamaCare will get the money they sought in the first place. One-sixth of the US economy is a tasty morsel for the lecherous Left.
