The IRS admits to targeting conservative groups for additional review and laughably claimsthe witch hunt wasn’t “motivated by political bias.” What will its math-challenged spokeswoman Lois Lerner say about allegations that the IRS gave “extra-special attention to the tax-exempt status of some Jewish groups for political reason“?
In fact, the IRS is (or was) targeting “groups [focused on] ‘educating on the Constitution and Bill of Rights,’” according to Prof. William A. Jacobson.
So what could possibly go wrong with the IRS administering all of your health care data?
When Obamacare’s individual mandate takes effect in 2014, all Americans who file income tax returns must complete an additional IRS tax form… The new form will require disclosure of a taxpayer’s personal identifying health information in order to determine compliance with the Affordable Care Act’s individual mandate.
As confirmed by IRS testimony to the tax-writing House Committee on Ways and Means, “taxpayers will file their tax returns reporting their health insurance coverage, and/or making a payment”.
