The Relationship between Obamacare and the IRS
Obamacare gives unprecedented powers and authority to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) – the same agency that for three years was targeting and harassing conservative organizations.
Obamacare includes 47 major changes to the revenue code. According to the IRS Inspector General, these 47 changes “represent the largest set of tax law changes the IRS has had to implement in more than 20 years.”
In order to implement all of these Obamacare tax rules, the IRS has requested funding for 1,954 new agents to begin in 2014.
Perhaps the most frightening aspect of Obamacare’s expansion of the IRS is the fact that the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and the IRS are now working together to create a massive online database with personal information. This database is the largest personal database the government has ever attempted. The database is called the Federal Data Services Hub and is a central portal where individuals’ medical records, citizenship information, criminal records, and all of their tax information on file with the IRS will be collected.
