Obamacare Requires Lots Of New IRS Agents And Money

Obamacare just keeps getting better and better, via USA Today

The Internal Revenue Service says it will need an battalion of 1,054 new auditors and staffers and new facilities at a cost to taxpayers of more than $359 million in fiscal 2012 just to watch over the initial implementation of President Obama’s healthcare reforms. Among the new corps will be 81 workers assigned to make sure tanning salons pay a new 10 percent excise tax. Their cost: $11.5 million.

And that’s just to implement O-care. Seriously, $11.5 million to collect on tanning beds?

In its request, the IRS explained that the tax changes associated with health reform are huge. “Implementation of the Affordable Care Act of 2010 presents a major challenge to the IRS. ACA represents the largest set of tax law changes in more than 20 years, with more than 40 provisions that amend the tax laws.”

Unsaid: The requests are just the beginning, since the new healthcare program is evolving and won’t be fully implemented until about 2014.

Doesn’t that make your hump day feel great?

    That’s it exactly Maggie- all his new jobs are for his cronies, er I mean for government positions. All the new bureaucracies. All of the new agencies. All of the new IRS employees. And all to manage and run a healthcare debacle that we will pay for with not only our tax dollars, but ultimately, with our health!
    Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.
