IRS To Administer Obamacare
Be Afraid. Be VERY Afraid!
A Commentary by J. D. Longstreet
From ABC News we learn the following: "The
Internal Revenue Service official in charge of the tax-exempt
organizations at the time when the unit targeted tea party groups now
runs the IRS office responsible for the health care legislation.
Hall Ingram served as commissioner of the office responsible for
tax-exempt organizations between 2009 and 2012. But Ingram has since
left that part of the IRS and is now the director of the IRS’ Affordable
Care Act office, the IRS confirmed to ABC News today." SOURCE: http://abcnews.go.com/blogs/politics/2013/05/irs-official-in-charge-during-tea-party-targeting-now-runs-health-care-office/
That bit of news ought to scare you to death!
I find it incomprehensible that anyone, I mean ANYONE, is surprised by the antics at the IRS.
Conservative commentators, conservative groups, conservative political groups have been complaining for years that the IRS was really leaning on them. Now there is irrefutable proof. Heck, the IRS even admitted it!
Now we have the added horror of knowing that this same government agency will be administering our healthcare.
THIS is a NIGHTMARE!
sincerely hope that all the folks who have joked and made fun of those
of us on the right side of the political spectrum as a result of our
distrust of big government will finally see exactly what we are afraid
of from a strong central government.
All last week, I asked myself this question: If the government is willing to admit THIS overreach, just how deep IS
their overreach and what will we find if we continue to dig especially
into the depths of the agencies under the direct control of the
executive branch of the government. I shudder just thinking about it.
In the same article from ABC News we also learned: "Sen.
John Cornyn even introduced a bill, the “Keep the IRS Off Your Health
Care Act of 2013,” which would prohibit the Secretary of the Treasury,
or any delegate, including the IRS, from enforcing the Affordable Care
“Now more than ever, we need to prevent the IRS from having
any role in Americans’ health care,” Cornyn, R-Texas, stated. “I do not
support Obamacare, and after the events of last week, I cannot support
giving the IRS any more responsibility or taxpayer dollars to implement a
Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell also reacted
to the revelation late Thursday, stating the news was “stunning, just
stunning.” SOURCE: http://abcnews.go.com/blogs/politics/2013/05/irs-official-in-charge-during-tea-party-targeting-now-runs-health-care-office/
We can thank God that the AP scandal became public at the same time as
the IRS scandal. Had it not, I feel certain we would not have the
participation of the leftist Mainstream Media in coverage of the IRS
mess. They are heart broken and outraged to learn that their messiah,
Obama, could do such a thing to them -- especially them -- as they have
worked so diligently to whitewash the Obama administration. Their
lapdog-like adoration of Obama either blinded them to his feet of clay,
or they have deliberately chosen to drop their facade of unbiased
reporting of the news and throw their considerable resources toward
advancing Obama's Leftist/Progressive/Marxist agenda for America.
past four and a half years American consumers of news have been
subjected to a gusher of leftist propaganda unlike anything the country
has ever known.
Now, however, the low-blow by Obama may, and I say that reservedly, MAY have knocked some sense into them. But it will take some time for the MsM to regain the confidence of their consumers ... if ever they do.
The investigations in Congress will continue and will intensify. This is only the beginning.
Whether the end result will be the deconstruction of the Obama
presidency, or not, remains to be seen. But investigations of this type
have a way of snowballing touching off other investigations by other
congressional committees until someone -- somewhere -- breaks and spills
We have warned of the overreach of Obamacare. Many
of you are not going to believe just how deep into your personal
affairs the government is going to delve under cover of that monstrous
law we call Obamacare.
Hopefully, the hearings on
the IRS will bring Americans to their senses enough to bring pressure to
bear on the Congress to repeal that godawful law.
This is why the election of 2014 is so important. To repeal Obamacare we will need a Senate AND a House of Representatives to even have a CHANCE of repealing Obamacare. And then, to seal the deal, we must win the Oval Office.
So -- please pay attention to these hearings and learn just what the Obama administration thinks of the American electorate.
This is important, dear reader. America is on the cusp of a constitutional crisis. It could be the crisis that brings America down.
It is imperative that Americans reclaim their country -- before it is too late.
