Why are people leary of the IRS running Obamacare, haven't they proven themselves trustworthy and fair?

I mean, they would never single out a group for denials or further scrutiny based on political ideologies, right?

    Good thing the IRS won't run Obamacare, then.

    Well, they'd be wrong, since the IRS will not be "running Obamacare."

    Their participation in the Affordable Care Act is limited to collecting the penalty fee from people who do not satisfy the requirement to purchase health insurance.

    Fun fact: The IRS has no power to force people to pay the fee. The ACA bars the IRS from bringing a criminal enforcement case against someone who refuses to pay the non-insurance penalty. And it makes it very difficult, if not impossible, for it to enforce a tax lien.

    The only way they could collect it is deducting it from any tax refund due.

    IRS running Obamacare? Who posted this stuff? Bachmann? That lady is haunted by crazy thoughts on a regular basis but still on the Intelligence Committee. Now that tells us about the intelligence (not) of the GOP.

    Pay your own way and they aren't involved. They have a function and when it works, Republicans don't like it. But get used to paying because you're going to have too.Its the law of the land. And while you're at it, Pay your taxes too.
