According to the Congressional Budget Office, over the next ten years the IRS will require between $5 and $10 billion in funding to implement Obamacare.
Scores of new federal mandates and fifteen different tax increases totaling $400 billion are imposed under the recently passed Healthcare Bill. In addition to more complicated tax returns, families and small businesses will be forced to reveal further tax information to the IRS, provide proof of ‘government approved’ health care and submit detailed sales information to comply with new excise taxes.
This increase in IRS funding will be used to hire, an estimated 16,500 or more, additional IRS agents and employees. Now I ask you why should reforming our health care system require an expansion of the IRS?
Healthcare needs to be moved to the states and the IRS needs to diminished in size, not expanded, as we overhaul and simplify the tax system.
