If you opted to pay the tax to the IRS instead of exchanging your hard earned dollars for crappy ObamaCare, well, the President is not pleased with you. He has asked the IRS to use your private tax information to hunt you down and politely ask you to get in line.
(Forbes) “…at President Obama’s direction, the IRS is “reaching out” to people who paid the tax penalty for not buying mandatory health insurance or who claimed an exemption in hopes of “attracting” more people to sign up for ObamaCare insurance. The government is particularly interested in compliance from healthy young people.”
Claimed an exemption from the fee? You will also receive an intimidating letter from the Internal Revenu Service, no doubt questioning your patriotism or suggesting that continued non-compliance (even though the law allows you to do what you’ve done) could result in a more detailed investigation of “your situation.”
I honestly have no clue what they will do, but Congress is having words with HHS and Obama about this blanket harassment of a segment of the population that isn’t doing anything wrong. And healthy young people take note.
And healthy young people take note because this applies to everything the Progressive State creates. Every time you ignored them when they ignored the law as written, because it didn’t seem like it would affect you, you gave them your permission to ignore it when it finally does affects you.
