ObamaCare Expands IRS to Become Health Care Auditing and Enforcement Arm on All Americans - Video 3/22/10
Here is video of Michigan Rep. Dave Camp explaining that the new ObamaCare Law that will be signed into law tomorrow by President Obama will result in the IRS becoming involved in the Health Care of Americans.
Because the new law mandates all Americans to buy Health Insurance, the IRS will be the audit and enforcement arm for ObamaCare. According to Camp, people who do not buy Health Insurance as defined by the Federal Government will be taxed, not fined. Camp said even if a person is without insurance for one month, they will pay 1/12th of the tax levied for not being in compliance.
To know who has not had insurance, Camp said the IRS will have to perform an audit of every American every year to determine if they have had Health Insurance that meets the definition of the Government and will then enforce the law by taxing those who have not complied. This audit and enforcement function is estimated to cost $10 billion in the first 10 years, and will likely add an additional 16,000 IRS employees.
