The IRS is gearing up for its new role as health care cop. The agency, whose main responsibility is to collect taxes, will soon be in charge of enforcing ObamaCare. How can the IRS police a bill that comes with no civil or criminal penalties for those who refuse to pay?
Judge Andrew Napolitano weighed in on the issue on today’s Fox & Friends, saying that if someone chooses to pass on the health care plan and pay the tax, the IRS can withhold tax refunds, put a tax lien on your house, and send threatening letters in order to collect the tax.
Napolitano said that the scary part about this law is that it provides for 16,000 new IRS agents and funds them for the first four years.
