We have Obama administration officials and Democrats saying this tax/penalty/mandate from ObamaCare will only affect about 1% of the population that don't want to purchase health insurance. What about the 50 million people we were told did not have health insurance during the health care debate? Well the Government is hiring 16,000 IRS agents to collect over ONE TRILLION dollars from American taxpayers according to the Congressional Budget Office. That means even if you don't want or don't have health insurance you will pay for coverage to the IRS. The Supreme Court twisted the law to say this is a tax and that congress has the right to tax the American people. They will decide that if you have a job, you can pay and your employer can pay. This should pose a significant burden on much of the working lower and middle class and businesses. So the 1% figure being touted is a bunch of bull.
Well, well. well. So today, the President will be letting some people leave the work force. How convenient. Have you heard this one? As of today, the Department of Health and Human Services released a policy directive rewriting the Welfare Reform Act of 1996. The new policy waives the federal work requirement for able-bodied Americans to actively seek employment in able to receive Welfare. The Welfare rolls dropped from 12.2 million in 1996 to 4.5 million today. So as these people stay on welfare indefinitely, taxpayers will now be paying for their health insurance too!
Let's EXPAND Welfare and CREATE Another Program (ObamaCare) while we are going bankrupt and have a downgraded credit rating for the first time in American history. What an idiot! What a Socialist! What an Imperialist!
Oh, maybe Obama can artificially reduce the unemployment rate with this move? Typical socialism - they take some who really don't want to work out of the work force, put them on welfare and it opens up some jobs for others...just in time for the election.
