IRS & Debt Collectors Enforce Tax Rules for Government Health Care
Will IRS Abuse American Rights to Enforce Health Care Reform Tax?
Published: Wed 24 Mar 2010
"To enforce the bevy of new tax mandates stipulated in the Democrats' latest health care reform bill, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) will experience the biggest expansion since tax withholding was first introduced during World War II, according to Representative Kevin Brady (R-TX)."
"A new prediction from the House Ways and Means Committee minority staff and the Joint Economic Committee approximates that as many as 16,500 new IRS staff members will be necessary to examine, collect, and audit additional tax information mandated on small businesses and households in the "reconciliation" bill that the House of Representatives will vote on this weekend, Brady says."
"When most people think of health care reform they think of more doctor's exams, not more IRS exams," explains Congressman Kevin Brady, the leading House Republican on the Joint Economic Committee. "Isn't the federal government already intruding enough into our lives? We need thousands of new doctors and nurses in America, not thousands more IRS agents."
