Not a Tax: IRS to Hire Thousands of New Agents to Enforce Obamacare

By John Nolte | July 7, 2012 | Breitbart News

Thanks to some unforced errors committed by Team Romney last week regarding the ObamaCare tax/penalty issue, the corrupt media was able to keep the focus of the presidential election exactly where Obama wants it kept: off his failed record and on Mitt Romney. The media never, however, will expose the White House’s own hypocrisy on the issue — including its own Solicitor General making the tax case for Obama Care before the Supreme Court.

Something the media won’t be able to spin, though, is that even though ObamaCare is a job killer in the private sector, it’s a boon for federal employees who enjoy the kind of health and pension benefits you and I can only dream of — specifically IRS agents.

How many, exactly? Numbers range from 2,700 to 16,500:

The IRS says it is well on its way to gearing up for the new law but has offered little information about its long-term budget and staffing needs, generating complaints from Republican lawmakers and concern from government watchdogs.

The IRS is expected to spend $881 million on the law from 2010 through 2013, hiring more than 2,700 new workers and upgrading its computer systems. But the IRS has not made public information about its spending plans in the following years, when the bulk of the health care law takes effect.

The lack of information makes it impossible to determine whether the IRS will have adequate workers to enforce the health care law, the Treasury inspector general for tax administration said in a report three weeks ago. The report, however, concluded that “appropriate plans had been developed to implement tax-related provisions” of the law.

In 2010, House Ways and Means Committee Republicans issued a report saying the IRS may need as many as 16,500 additional auditors, agents and other employees “to investigate and collect billions in new taxes from Americans.”

That assessment has been widely cited by opponents of the law. The IRS disputes the jobs number but hasn’t offered another one.

Well, it’s good to know ObamaCare is creating jobs somewhere.

Remember this information and spread the word.

Yes, as I said, the media can’t spin this story — but that means they’re going to memory-hole it — just like they’re memory-holing the fact that 75% of the ObamaCare burden will fall on the already drowning middle class.

After all, Americans need to know about Ann Romney’s horses and Mitt’s jet ski and Seamus and to be told more lies about Bain’s outsourcing and, and, and, and, and….
