Seems to me the Individual Mandate, a Republican idea...

Doesn't it ever get boring reading from a script?

Seems to me the Individual Mandate, a Republican idea, calls for those who don't have insurance to be penalized via tax penalties.

How is it that the IRS is doing anything except it's duty under the law?

The individual mandate is a violation of the Constitution. If the IRS had any respect for Constitutional legality, it would refuse to enforce the tax penalties.

But silly me, the IRS is about taking your money and flushing it down the Federal toilet.


Which part of the Constitution is being violated?

I don't disagree with your disdain of the Individual Mandate. It was a Republican idea, included in Republican Healthcare "Reform" Plans, and the Democrats were dumb enough to include it in ACA thinking that Republicans would deal honorably.

As we know, they didn't.

Which ones?

Nevermind. The thread is about the IRS (part of this Administration) following the provisions of the ACA.

You know, Democrats do own this 100%!

They own it because they lacked the testicular fortitude to stand up and push the single-payer/universal healthcare aspect as was originally intended. They completely caved to the insurance lobby and instead of requiring all people to sign up for healthcare coverage provided by the colletive wealth of the taxpayers, they required you to sign up for PRIVATE insurance or pay a fee.

The individual mandate went from coverage for all, to coverage to those that can afford it, free coverage for those that are poor, and fines to the government for everyone else.

They are to blame for not going in to this issue head-on and demanding healthcare for all.

For the record, I agree with this 100%. What exists as the ACA is beneficial in some ways but is in others an abomination.

Now, don't expect any of our friends on the right to realize this.

The individual mandate requires that you purchase an in surance policy. Im 28 and in good health. I budget for my healthcare. I DONT NEED OR WANT THIRD PARTY BS. It is my right to refuse to purchase insurance as a pursuit of happiness and freedom of association (or disassociation).

The way I see it, a law that violates my Constitutional rights is criminal activity and should be treated as such. That goes for the Republicans and Democrats that asserted their unwarranted will over mine.

Screw Obamacare, screw the Republicrats, and the IRS can kiss my ass.

Single Payer was a plan to buy a Medicare policy.

Democrats were afraid it would get fumble-flopped at high levels.

Medical Industries were afraid of the low payments for service.

You're picking and choosing what laws you agree with right there.




The GAO was successful in 11 of 12 attempts to register fictitious people with the federal health insurance exchange. In seven of those cases, the fake applications were missing vital pieces of information, which should have raised red flags during the approval process.


Instead of going after people that defrauded the system, they're going after people who did nothing other than choose not to buy a product.

I understand, I think the individual mandate sucks too.

I'm asking which of your Constitutional rights are being violated, because I'm curious.

Well then, Mrs. Pelosi should have read it before she passed it

Yes it was. Better than having no insurance at all, paying for expensive private insurance or paying a fine to the bloated IRS for not having squat. That option would have taken the profit motive out and really made coverage affordable.
