Maine Governor Calls Obamacare’s Army of IRS Agents the “New Gestapo”

Maine Governor Paul LePage accused the Obama Administration of organizing an army of “new Gestapo” agents to enforce the ObamaTax law.

Maine Governor Paul LePage called Obamacare’s army of IRS agents the “new Gestapo” today in his weekly radio address.
The Portland Press Herald reported, via Conservative Nation News

Gov. Paul LePage used his weekly radio address to blast President Obama’s health care law and described the Internal Revenue Service as the “new Gestapo.”

The IRS description was a reference to a provision in the Affordable Care Act that requires most Americans to buy health insurance or pay an annual penalty when filing their tax returns. The provision, known more broadly as the individual mandate, was the subject of a multi-state lawsuit, but was recently upheld by the U.S. Supreme Court.

LePage said the court decision has “made America less free.”

“We the people have been told there is no choice,”
he said. “You must buy health insurance or pay the new Gestapo – the I.R.S.”

The debate over the mandate has become a political flash point since the health law was enacted. Republicans maintain that the requirement is an unfair tax. Democrats say the mandate was originally a Republican idea borne from the conservative Heritage Foundation, which introduced the measure in 1989 as counterpoint to calls for a single-payer health care system.

The Gestapo were Nazi Germany’s official secret police under Adolph Hitler, who imprisoned and murdered thousands of people without cause.

LePage also addressed another element of the health-care law that was immediately thrust into the public debate: Medicaid expansion. Originally the Affordable Care Act required states to increase eligibility for low-income residents or pay a penalty. The court decision struck down the penalty, however, the federal government is still offering to pay for the expansion.

The federal government will fund 100 percent of the expansion from 2014 to 2016, gradually declining to 90 percent after that.

The Obama administration is building up the IRS by another 16,500 agents to enforce Obamacare.

    Don’t you love how they spin it as some kind of separately beneficent federal government paying for it all, why it’s practically free, except in reality… Actually it just adds another enormously expensive layer of government bureaucracy to the real costs, reducing personal and other choices and alternatives, in addition to the left-wing police state attributes now nipping at our heels everyday by first eroding our wallets. Every dollar the Democrat’s police state steals from us is money which can’t go to our families, or to the charitable causes we personally value most.

    As the wheels start to come off Obamatax, and the issue of freedom is now at the forefront of the campaign (although dumbass Romney still can’t grasp it), and Obamatax is NOT a liberal rallying point, the governors are starting their rebellion.

    Welcome to the new civil war, fought this time in courts- hopefully. Scott in Florida says no way, Jindal the same, I think about thirty now.

    As the horror that is Obamatax bleeds into the minds of the people, something that would not happen if the SP went the other way, the people will simply reject it and anybody who supports it.

    Watch and see how many democrats in the House change sides as a way to see how effective our votes can be.

    As recently as June 27th, the Government Accountability Office was reporting that the number of new IRS employees would be around 4,500.

    Now that the Supremes have endorsed Obamacare, they don’t need to be so conservative with their numbers. Now, it’s 16,500 new employees looking through your underwear drawer. On top of the 110,000 employees they reported in 2010 (most recent numbers I could find). You do the math yourself, and figure average payroll and fringes cost for each employee at $120,000 per person.

    They’ll be spending $330 Billion to “upgrade their systems” to accomodate the law that Obama promised would not replace private insurance. That’s almost the total “savings” from “streamlining” Medicare.

    Man, this just keeps getting better and better. Last week, it was announced that there are already 13,000 pages of new federal regulations, and they’re just getting warmed up.

    I wonder how much federal money has ACTUALLY already been spent ramping up for this monstrosity and how much more money we can afford to “save” before our economy collapses.

    “Democrats say the mandate was originally a Republican idea borne from the conservative Heritage Foundation, which introduced the measure in 1989 as counterpoint to calls for a single-payer health care system.”

    The Republicans don’t pass it; they rejected it. Now the Dems are running scared about what they have done. They are turning every which way to avoid taking responsibility for their abortion. Taking responsibility is literally the last thing any proper Dem would ever do. Why heck, you can’t take responsibility and still claim that you are a victim! What to do? Blame it on the Republicans. Yeah, that’s it; the Republican made them do it. Well, there is one other thing Dems do all the time: lie, lie and lie some more. They may be trying to block out 2009 and 2010 when they were trying every imaginable corrupt way to cram ObamaCare down our throats, but the rest of us remember those times, vividly.

    How could it possibly require thousands of IRS agents to enforce Obamacare? From everything I’ve read, it’s pretty simple … if you don’t have health insurance, you pay a tax/penalty. Seems to me, it’s just another line on your tax return. Not a line that I think should be there mind you, but just a line. How it could require thousands more agents to enforce something like that is beyond me. I smell a rat …

    Here’s the exact quote for post 17.

    “We cannot continue to rely only on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives that we’ve set. We’ve got to have a civilian national security force that’s just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded.” -Obama, July 2, 2008.

    I think it was understood at that time, to be a force of community volunteers. However, national security has been associated with national healthcare by this administration. It’s no secret they’ll say whatever they think they need to in order to get what they want.

    #27 – The scope of additional required administrative monitoring and enforcement will be immense. The system is already burdened with huge sums associated with Medicaid and Medicare fraud; while this IRS specific management task may be of less proportions, it will not be incidental. For approximation purposes, 16500 personnel (total including basic clerical roles), equates to each dealing with an average of 14,000+ returns, and their consequent payment and compliance details annually. The projections are more likely to end up being a low figure by the time higher paid government lawyers and accountants become critical for dealing with the flood of inevitable abuses requiring litigation and enforcement in this expanded role.

    From “IRS struggling to combat rise in tax fraud” (4/15/2012):

    “As the U.S.’ tax collector, the IRS processed more than 234million tax returns in fiscal 2011.”

    “To handle its responsibilities, the IRS is currently funded by an annual budget totaling $11.8billion. That’s a nearly 2.1percent cut from 2011 and marks the second consecutive budget reduction.

    Those decreases have left the IRS “unable to adequately detect and address non-compliance, requiring honest taxpayers to shoulder a disproportionately large share of the tax burden,” National Taxpayer Advocate Nina Olson said in her 2012 annual report to Congress. She heads an independent IRS office that aids taxpayers having trouble with tax issues.”

    King David when young, “Who is this uncircumcised Philistine that he should defy the armies of the living God?””

    Haman’s Plot against the Jews
    Esther 3
    3 After these events King Ahasuerus promoted Haman, the son of Hammedatha the Agagite, and advanced him and [a]established his authority over all the princes who were with him. 2 All the king’s servants who were at the king’s gate bowed down [b]and paid homage to Haman; for so the king had commanded concerning him.

    But Mordecai neither bowed down nor paid homage.

    Liberty’s brethren you see our mind must change, then our actions to deal with the evil which we are about to encounter.

    I remember an old Stevn Segal movie when he and one other man had to take on a drug gang. Segal said in the movie to motivate his partner, “we will win becaise we have a superior mind and a superior attitude.”

    Re #20 —…if you don’t have health insurance, you pay a tax/penalty. Seems to me, it’s just another line on your tax return…

    One of the really exciting things about ObamaTAX is it’s a way for the Commies to learn all about you and, most importantly, what you own.

    That “tax/penalty” is based on your income, your personal wealth, property, etc. – as I understand it. So it won’t be easy for them to assess all your assets. It’ll take a heck of alot of them sniffing around. Ready for them to go through your closets?!

    Never underestimate the Commie. Surely you’ve heard: already he’s fouled up the mortgage business so much, selling and reselling mortgages using unqualified people, that NOBODY knows WHO owns most houses! Good luck if you don’t have that deed in hand!

    And to think Barry got it all started when he sued Citi…well, after Jimmah and Cigar Willy did their bit, too. Oh, golly. Are we having fun now?!

    I am surprise it has taken an official so long to say this. Our nation has never been so depressed and lacking confidence in any leader since Obama took office. His priority was creating a New Affordable Health Care Act. He did, under false pretenses.

    And every Democrat in Congress who voted for this LIE TO A NATION AND NEVER STOPPED TO READ IT.

    Obama and all of Congress who voted for this will be voted out of office because their duty was to do the work of the people and the failed miserably.

    Our nation has no leadership when leadership LIES.

    Obama’s Plan For World Without Nuclear Weapons—Ours

    The Obama Record: In pursuit of a world without nuclear weapons, the president finalizes plans to decimate our nuclear deterrent and reduce our warhead count beyond even treaty commitments.[…]

    This plan stems from a Nuclear Posture Review conducted by an administration committed to a world without nuclear weapons, particularly American ones, based on two fraudulent conclusions, one that Cold War weapons are no longer needed in a post-Cold War world, and the weapons, not the tyrants who would use them against us, are the real threat.

    Pentagon planners were tasked to consider three force levels as part of the Nuclear Posture Review ordered by the president last August: a force of 1,000 to 1,100 warheads; a second scenario of 700 and 800 warheads; and the lowest level of 300 to 400 warheads.

    Obama tasked the Pentagon with developing options that would eliminate as much as 80% of the deployed weapon levels set by his seriously defective “New Start” Treaty.[..]

    Incidentally, in the interest of fair play note part of the article from todays article:
    The tax man cometh to police you on health care

    http://apnews.myway.com/article/20120707/D9VS2E3O0.html

    “The IRS is expected to spend $881 million on the law from 2010 through 2013, hiring more than 2,700 new workers and upgrading its computer systems. But the IRS has not made public information about its spending plans in the following years, when the bulk of the health care law takes effect.

    The lack of information makes it impossible to determine whether the IRS will have adequate workers to enforce the health care law, the Treasury inspector general for tax administration said in a report three weeks ago. The report, however, concluded that “appropriate plans had been developed to implement tax-related provisions” of the law.

    In 2010, House Ways and Means Committee Republicans issued a report saying the IRS may need as many as 16,500 additional auditors, agents and other employees “to investigate and collect billions in new taxes from Americans.”

    That assessment has been widely cited by opponents of the law. The IRS disputes the jobs number but hasn’t offered another one.

    “That is a made-up number with no basis in fact,” IRS spokesman Dean Patterson said in an email. “The 2012 budget calls for about 1,200 employees for the IRS to implement the (Affordable Care Act), and the vast majority of those employees are needed to build technology infrastructure to support payments like the new tax credits for individuals and small businesses.”

    Republicans on the House committee have accused the IRS of obscuring its cost of putting in place the health care law by absorbing it into in other parts of the agency’s budget. They cite a June report by the Government Accountability Office that said the IRS has not always accurately identified spending related to the new health care law.

    “The agency’s repeated lack of transparency to Congress and its failure to provide accountability to the American taxpayers raises fundamental concerns about implementation authorities vested to the IRS,” the top four Republicans on the Ways and Means Committee wrote in a June 27 letter to the IRS commissioner.”

    Well said, I have followed Jim for a few years now, and find the information here informative, but I want more substantial direction and tact’s to inhibit the traitorous slugs who look to do this nation and its people harm. I find Ann B. intriguing and I suspect feared by many inside the Beltway. We need far more like her with fire in her belly and the courage to speak out at the corruption that is eating at our nations soul. The hardcore Left is not crazy, nor idiots, they are on a mission of the complete dismantling of our society. The media, network TV (especially the entertainment side of the house), and the press are nothing more than their tools to lie and confuse America about her greatness.
    A side note a story at AP (http://www.centurylink.net/news/read.php?rip_id=%3CD9VSC1TG0%40news.ap.org%3E&ps=1017) talks about the swing back to our national roots, a good read but I suspect an attempt by the Left to divide the vote on the Right between Romney and Ron Paul. These are the things people need to address on the Right especially in our blogs on how the machine will do everything in it’s power to inhibit our freedoms. Information is one of our best tools, but stories must include reliable links and authors.
    While not as active as I once was I still start my day here, research the stories that draw my attention, then E-Mail friends and my elected Rep. with what I find, with links. If for no other reason than to let him know many outside DC no longer trust nor depend on the media with our future.

    Re #35 — “Barack Obama and the Strategy of Manufactured Crisis” — The commies united to destroy America:

    The next time you drive through one of the many blighted neighborhoods in our cities, or read of the astronomical crime, drug addiction, and out-of-wedlock birth rates, or consider the failed schools, strapped police and fire resources of every major city, remember Cloward and Piven’s thrill that “…the drain on local resources persists indefinitely.”

    ACORN, the new tip of the Cloward-Piven spear
    […]
    ACORN showed its colors again in 1991, by taking over the House Banking Committee room for two days to protest efforts to scale back the CRA. Obama represented ACORN in the Buycks-Roberson v. Citibank Fed. Sav. Bank, 1994 suit against redlining. Most significant of all, ACORN was the driving force behind a 1995 regulatory revision pushed through by the Clinton Administration that greatly expanded the CRA and laid the groundwork for the Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac borne financial crisis we now confront. Barack Obama was the attorney representing ACORN in this effort. With this new authority, ACORN used its subsidiary, ACORN Housing, to promote subprime loans more aggressively.

    As a New York Post article describes it:

    A 1995 strengthening of the Community Reinvestment Act required banks to find ways to provide mortgages to their poorer communities. It also let community activists intervene at yearly bank reviews, shaking the banks down for large pots of money.

    Banks that got poor reviews were punished; some saw their merger plans frustrated; others faced direct legal challenges by the Justice Department.

    http://www.americanthinker.com/2008/09/barack_obama_and_the_strategy.html

    Oooh, so THAT’s why Barry didn’t want us to know he was so chummy with ACORN — and why we couldn’t know about his Columbia years…Cloward and Piven!
