Maine Governor Paul LePage says the Obama’s IRS is the new Gestapo. Estimates suggest Obama needs 16,500 new IRS agents to implement Obamacare. I’d bet anything that number will grow many times over.
The Portland Press Herald reported on LePage:
Obamacare “made America less free.”
“We the people have been told there is no choice … You must buy health insurance or pay the new Gestapo – the I.R.S.”
A new analysis by the Joint Economic Committee and the House Ways & Means Committee minority staff estimates up to 16,500 new IRS personnel will be needed to collect, examine and audit new tax information mandated on families and small businesses in the ‘reconciliation’ bill being taken up by the U.S. House of Representatives this weekend. …
Scores of new federal mandates and fifteen different tax increases totaling $400 billion are imposed under the Democratic House 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.
