Officials on Capitol Hill have been working with the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) to determine how they will enforce Obamacare. Under the newly approved law, the IRS will fine taxpayers thousands of dollars if they do not obey the US government and purchase health insurance as defined by Obamacare. The IRS demands the ability to collect data on Americans so that the IRS can enforce compliance.
An estimated 4,000 agents and $303 million will be needed to force Americans into submission. The creation of the Government Accountability Office (GAO) review of the IRS 2012 tax returns shows that US citizens are reluctant to comply.
The GAO asserts that the $303 million for Obamacare will “continue the development of new systems and modifications of existing systems required to support new tax credits.”
Obama is diverting over $500 million to the IRS under the guise of administering subsidies for the poor which are actually tax credits that the government can collect on later for their social assistance.
Obamacare allocates $1 billion to the Department of Health and Human Service (HHS) to use at its discretion. Referred to as a “slush fund”, half of those monies will be directed to the IRS.
The GAO claims these transfers of funds are “legal and consistent with how agencies have used general implementation funds in the past.”
The author of Obamacare is Liz Fowler, who is also the vice president of Well Point, one of the biggest insurance corporations in the US, has defined American health insurance oversight and implementation. Fowler, a part of the Obama administration, is the Chief Health Counsel for the Senate Finance Committee and has been promoted to the deputy director of the Office of Consumer Information and Oversight at the US Department of Health and Human Services.
It is Fowler who will allocate funds without Congressional oversight and make sure that the Independent Payment Advisory Board (IPAB) will:
• Policies regarding healthcare to Congress
• Recommendations on costs, mitigating waste, prioritizing disbursement of care
• Impose taxes whether the US government pays the medical bills or not
• Ration medical care to Americans as they see fit
The Medicare surtax that begins in 2013 will force individuals whose income is $200,000 ($250,000 if married) to pay more into Medicaid. This tax effects taxpayers by imposing a tax on wage income at a certain level and invents a new Medicare tax on invested income
Individual income could see a 0.9 to 1.45% increase in taxes on wages. Investment income could see a 3.9% tax on a portion of their capital gains.
Penalties on failure to purchase health insurance under Obamacare will be structured as so:
• By 2014, the penalty will be $285 per family or 1% of income or whichever is greater
• By 2015, the cap rises to $975 or 2% of income
• By 2016, the penalty would be up to $2,085 per family or 2.5% of income or whichever is greater
This translates to beginning at $95 for individuals; rising to $325 and then $625 within a short period of time.
Despite the US Supreme Court decision to uphold Obamacare, the Commerce Clause in the US Constitution states: “[The Congress shall have Power] To regulate Commerce with foreign Nations, and among the several States, and with the Indian tribes.”
This means that the US government cannot force its citizens to purchase a service from a corporation.
Semate Minority Whip Jon Kyl explained back in March of this year with regard to Obamacare: “. . . since the Constitution was designed to preserve the freedom of the people and their sovereignty over the government, if the government can’t draw a line beyond which its power cannot extend, than we have just confirmed or the Supreme Court will have confirmed an all-powerful government which is not what the founders intended.”
However the US Supreme Court let us down by ruling in favor of this unconstitutional law by way of a loophole. If the law is actually a tax, then the US government can impose their will on the American public.
Chief Justice John Roberts, appointed by former president George W. Bush, asserted that “the federal government does not have the power to order people to buy health insurance”, however seemed to flip-flop as he stated: “The federal government does have the power to impose a tax on those without health insurance.”
In this statement is the “tell” about the purpose of Obamacare. Although the promise of assured health insurance for Americans sounds like a good thing, the fact is this law is a scheme to impose a penalty tax on Americans for not obeying orders from the Obama administration. And by using the US government’s right to impose taxation (by the right of the US Constitution) Obama and the Supreme Court have perverted the intentions of our Founding Fathers by demanding the American public pay taxes . . . not purchase insurance.
Since Obamacare is a tax, it is redirected to the IRS and ultimately the Federal Reserve for collection and payment purposes. Again, we are paying money to the central bankers in an outright ploy to strip Americans of their sovereignty as our Constitution is used against us.
