IRS wants 4,000 new agents, $300 million budget to enforce Obamacare

(NaturalNews) More than quadrupling an estimate it put forth last year for new agents (The Daily Caller), the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) now says that it will need more than 4,000 new agents to enforce the provisions of the Affordable Care Act (ACA), also known as Obamacare. And in addition to these new agents, the IRS is also asking for more than $300 million in new funding to help fortify the infrastructure it will supposedly need to unconstitutionally force Americans to purchase government healthcare.
The constitutionality of Obamacare is currently being reviewed by the U.S. Supreme Court, and yet the IRS is already acting as though the overhaul is definitive law. According to IRS budget requests, the agency says it needs a massive cash infusion to "continue the development of new systems and modifications of existing systems required to support new tax credits." But in reality, this money will more than likely be used to spy on Americans and fine them for failing to purchase adequate health coverage.
"Health reform's insurance mandate says if you do not have 'adequate' insurance, you'll have to pay a fine as part of your tax return," writes Elizabeth MacDonald for FOX Business (Fox Business | Business News & Stock Quotes - Saving & Investing). "If your business doesn't provide 'affordable' coverage, you'll have to pay a fine to the IRS, too, as part of your tax return filing."
According to FOX News analyst James Farrell, new IRS reporting requirements under Obamacare, should it end up being declared constitutional, will require individuals to disclose personal insurance plan information such as coverage provisions and costs to the IRS. The provisions will also require individuals to reveal whether or not they have been offered health insurance by their employers, and what this employer-sponsored insurance costs, information that the IRS has never before dealt with.
Another stated reason for the increase in agents and budget funds is to enforce the new tanning excise tax. Tanning salons, health clubs, beauty parlors and other businesses that offer tanning services will be required to pay a tax similar to the kind levied on alcohol and tobacco (The Foundry: Conservative Policy News Blog from The Heritage Foundation). According to The Daily Caller, the IRS is planning to devote 81 of its agents just to collecting this ten-percent tax (The Daily Caller).
"Obamacare bashes into the Constitution at every turn because it is fundamentally in conflict to the essential founding principles of this country -- freedom and the sovereignty of states and citizens," writes Grace-Marie Turner for Canada Free Press (Supremes should declare ObamaCare unconstitutional). "It turns control over one-sixth of our economy to the federal government, ceding life and death decisions to the state."

Big socialist gov sucks.
Yeah but that's 4,000 new jobs to fill an artificial demand that creates no wealth and has to be paid for by the taxpayers to enforce an unconstitutional bill most people want repealed. Sounds like a liberal win win.
The savings to America has begun!
the deficit is and was never supposed to be paid off...lol
repudiation is the only way the US deficit goes away, and that ain't happening...
Prince I bet this news made your day
Finally, those shovel ready jobs are here!
I'm moving to Mexico and getting a job with Ford...
The IRS can suck it.
If gunners were as violent as anti-gunners believe, logically there wouldn't be any anti-gunners left.
Screw this shit...
it's why guest workers from Mexico have no problems taking the low wage crappy jobs here in the US that nobody wants to do, they pay dream wages that they could never earn back home.
I'm really glad to see this limited government thing is taking effect.
Cause if we had more government things could really get bad!
in a real country with a functioning representative government we would be seeing a reversal of bad economic policy that got the US to this point but you don't, nothing.
it's a money grab by those at the top right now in preparation for when the USD tanks and hyperinflation hits, it's not a matter of if but simply a matter of when.
for the past 40+ years regardless of what party is in power there are no many major changes in legislation for the good of the people. I think the last time I counted between GWB and Obama there were at least 600 people in positions of power in the US that where either CFR, TLC or Bilderberg members.
