Sign Up for Obamacare or Go to Jail!!

Fox News’ Judge Napolitano recently had some important warnings about President Obama’s takeover of our national healthcare system. Firstly it isn’t healthcare, it’s a tax and secondly be prepared to go to jail if you don’t pay your Obamacare tax.

First of all–and it really isn’t noted enough–Obamacare was OKayed by the Supreme Court of the United States not because it is a “healthcare law” and not because it is “insurance,” but because Obama told the court it was a “tax.” So, Obamacre is not healthcare at all. It is merely just another big government tax hike.

Because Obamacare is a tax hike, it can be treated like any other tax. And who collects those taxes? The IRS? And what sort of power does the IRS have? It has the power to kick down your door with armed forces, it has the power to confiscate your bank accounts, it has the power to detain you, and it has the power to put you in jail if you do not do everything it tells you to do.

Now, it is true that as the law was passed the IRS has not (yet) been given the power to proactively use its police powers to force us to pay these “taxes.” Currently, the IRS will just take any fines or fees assessed by Obamacare right out of your refund payments. But if you have just enough taxes withheld during the year, or if you pay your taxes at the end of the year and have nothing withheld each year, then the IRS cannot come get you for the Obamacare assessments. Yet.

But this is a meaningless distinction because if Obamacare is a tax, then there is absolutely nothing stopping Obama from changing his law to allow the IRS to come with its armed stormtroopers and batter down your door and carting you off to jail for not paying the Obamacare “tax.”

And we’ve already seen this lawless president changing laws on his whim dozens of times over the last five years, so don’t imagine tat he cannot or will not do this. He has lied at every step of the way during his entire presidency. Remember how he told us we could keep our insurance plans and out doctors if we liked them?

Worse, weak willed Republicans have done nothing whatsoever to stop this most anti-American president from doing just anything he wants to do, so don’t expect the GOP to be on your side, America.

Obamacare is not insurance. It is not medical care. It is a tax and non payment of taxes can send you to jail. There are no two ways about it.

    Funny blog post, in the same sense that watching Glenn Beck smoke crack would be funny. The combination of ignorance and hysteria is amazing. Don’t worry, Sparky, they won’t be sending stormtroopers to the golf course at the country clubs. And, FYI, the GOP House caucus only has voted, oh, say, dozens of times to repeal this disaster. Ask Sharron Angle, Todd Akin, Richard Mourdock, Ken Buck and Christine O’Donnell why that’s not gone anywhere. Also ask the folks who stayed home in ’08 rather than voting for Norm Coleman or, yeah, wait for it, Ted Stevens. And those who stayed home in ’06 rather than voting for George Allen. That all said, this train wreck of a law is a tax, always has been a tax and always was intended and known to have been a tax, at least by those in the sentient camp. It was designed to wreck the healthcare and health insurance systems, thereby to pave the way for the Dems’ final push for single payer. Not a single Republican voted for it. Virtually every Democrat voted yea. Keep all that in mind when you decide for whom to vote and for whom to stay home and not vote.

      So the gist of the above comment is to assure us that Obamas 40,000 armed lawyers will not pursue selected individuals to use as guinea pigs to scare the masses into compliance?

    There’s a big difference between the President not choosing to enforce a law, and enforcing a law using methods specifically denied him. If the IRS was to put someone in jail, or even take property, to collect the mandate, that taxpayer would have standing to sue and would win easily. However, there is one lawyerly way the administration could pull this off that I’m surprised no one has mentioned anywhere that I can find: the IRS could count all tax payments as paying the mandate tax FIRST, and then say that you still owe regular income tax. Since money is fungible,they could probably use that to get around the prohibition on using force to enforce the mandate.

    • jim_m

      While money is fungible the law is not. The IRS does not have authorization to collect the mandate tax via withholding. They might require an act of Congress to repurpose those funds.

      Regardless, I believe they would have a hard time withholding your money for income tax purposes and then sending you notice that you are short on your income tax because they decided to use that withholding to pay for something else.

      While such a lawless solution would not surprise me coming from the obama admin, I don’t think they will do this.
