As Tax Day approaches, you may be delighted to learn that the Tax Man doesn't just cometh. He's already here. Big time.
We all know that we're grossly overtaxed in America as it is. You literally cannot even breathe or eat without paying taxes. What many Americans may not know, however, is that of the hundreds of new taxes in ObamaCare, many have already kicked in. And the biggest new taxes are set to hit you within months.
That's why Team Obama is diverting $500 million to the most feared bureaucracy in the nation: the Internal Revenue Service. After all, massive new taxes require a huge new IRS workforce in order to enforce them.
According to The Hill today:
"The Obama administration has plowed ahead despite the legal and political challenges.
"It has moved aggressively to get important policies in place. And, according to a review of budget documents and figures provided by congressional staff, the administration is also burning through implementation funding provided in the healthcare law.
"The law contains dozens of targeted appropriations to implement specific provisions. It also gave the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) a $1 billion implementation fund, to use as it sees fit. Republicans have called it a "slush fund."
"HHS plans to drain the entire fund by September - before the presidential election, and more than a year before most of the healthcare law takes effect. Roughly half of that money will ultimately go to the IRS.
"HHS has transferred almost $200 million to the IRS over the past two years and plans to transfer more than $300 million this year, according to figures provided by a congressional aide."
There is a reason Team Obama vested the IRS with the power to enforce ObamaCare: because their "health care" law had nothing to do with health care. It was, from the start, about government power and control...and about an added source of revenue to keep their big government growing ever bigger. They don't care about your health. They care about controlling you and raiding your bank account.
Note how fast they're moving to wrap the tentacles of ObamaCare around every aspect of the economy and your life, even as its very Constitutionality is before the Supreme Court. Team Obama knows that if they move fast NOW, it'll be ever-more difficult to unwind it.
That's why defeating Obama in November isn't just a political necessity. It's an economic one. And a Constitutional one.
