Maine Governor LePage Comments on President Obama’s Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) and Calls Obama’s New IRS Agents … the ‘new Gestapo’


Not a tax, eh Barack Obama … then why would one put the IRS in charge to enforce Obamacare? Cuz nothing says tax like the IRS.

Governor Paul LePage of Maine described the new IRS agents in charge of enforcing Obamacare as the “new Gestapo” as he blasted President Barack Obama’s health care law, known as Obamacare/Obamatax, in his weekly radio address. LePage commented that the SCOTUS decision on Obamacare has made America less free. You think?

Gov. Paul LePage used his weekly radio address to blast President Obama’s health care law and described the Internal Revenue Service as the “new Gestapo.”

The IRS description was a reference to a provision in the Affordable Care Act that requires Americans not insured by their employers or Medicaid to buy health insurance or pay an annual penalty when filing their tax returns. The provision, known more broadly as the individual mandate, was the subject of a multi-state lawsuit, but was recently upheld by the U.S. Supreme Court.

LePage said the court decision has “made America less free.”

“We the people have been told there is no choice,” he said. “You must buy health insurance or pay the new Gestapo — the IRS.”

There has been Democrat outrage regarding LePage’s comments and the Maine Democratic Party Chairman Ben Grant has asked for an apology. Really dude, there are many people who thought the IRS is the Gestapo long before Gov. LePage’s reference. As the Gateway Pundit reminds us, the Obama administration is building up the IRS by another 16,500 agents to enforce Obamacare. So it is not a tax, eh Democrats? Then why is the IRS in charge of enforcing Obamacare, hmm?

      Interactive Health care Subsidy Calculator ( Calculate teh Exchange premiums)
      SM: Just what we need, subsidizing freeloaders. Sorry, its the rest of us hard working people who have to pay for the rest while getting less insurance on top of it. Great. I think the very least that those getting a subsidy should do is send a thank you to those that have provided them healthcare.

      I agree. I’m barely making it and the above calculator reflects about a $1,000 yr increase in insurance premiums by 2014

      I worked with Medicaid Applications, Health & Rehabilatitive Services, Disabled adults etc, The dysfunction is beyond belief. Government workers who can’t be fired. Some are great people but with caseloads of 150–200. Utterly unmanageable.

      If you are not a TAX CHEAT why are you worried about the IRS? I pay my taxes and even let the IRS use my refund until they return it. TAX CHEATS should be pillored in front of the local court house and then turned over to the mob for the tar and feathering part. TAX CHEATING is stealing!
