Republicans were right about the army of IRS agents collecting personal medical information!

Remember when the nutcase Republicans were saying stupid shit about the IRS collecting personal health information in order to enforce Obamacare? Take, for instance, this doozy from Fox Nation:

IRS Hiring Thousands of Armed Tax Agents to Enforce Obamacare?

[…]
Under the new law, the IRS is required to fine taxpayers thousands of dollars if they do not purchase health insurance. In order for the government to enforce compliance, tax authorities will need information, for the first time, about people’s health care.

Wow…you can just envision an IRS agent pointing a gun at your head telling you to divulge intimate medical details about yourself. Gosh…that sounds scary.

(I’m only surprised they didn’t claim that Agents would be armed by mass confiscation of guns following passage of Obama’s next legislative assault on America: new gun control laws.)

At least there were no gun-wielding IRS agents in the congressional Republican’s take on it:

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.

“When most people think of health care reform they think of more doctors exams, not more IRS exams,” says U.S. Congressman Kevin Brady, the top House Republican on the Joint Economic Committee. “Isn’t the federal government already intruding enough into our lives? We need thousands of new doctors and nurses in America, not thousands more IRS agents.”

Of course, the whole thing was a lie manufactured to capitalize on fear of the IRS in order to sway public opinion against health care reforms.

Or was it a lie? (Via MoJo):

Under a GOP-backed bill expected to sail through the House of Representatives, the Internal Revenue Service would be forced to police how Americans have paid for their abortions. To ensure that taxpayers complied with the law, IRS agents would have to investigate whether certain terminated pregnancies were the result of rape or incest. And one tax expert says that the measure could even lead to questions on tax forms: Have you had an abortion? Did you keep your receipt?

Wait…this is just hyperbole invented by MSNBC or spewed by a flawed analysis from a minority party House committee, right?

In testimony to a House taxation subcommittee on Wednesday, Thomas Barthold, the chief of staff of the nonpartisan Joint Tax Committee, confirmed that one consequence of the Republicans’ “No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act” would be to turn IRS agents into abortion cops—that is, during an audit, they’d have to detemine, from evidence provided by the taxpayer, whether any tax benefit had been inappropriately used to pay for an abortion.
[…]

“Were this to become law, people could end up in an audit, the subject of which could be abortion, rape, and incest,” says Christopher Bergin, the head of Tax Analysts, a nonpartisan, not-for-profit tax policy group. “If you pass the law like this, the IRS would be required to enforce it.”

Keep classy, G.O.P. congresscritters!

The expression may be hackneyed, but…this really is a classic case of Wingnut Projection.

Remember folks…when the Republicans accuse Democrats of something outrageously over-the-top, you can be pretty sure it’s because they are planning to do something similar. (Or are actually doing it already…You know, like Newt Gingrich going after Clinton for adultery.)

And that, oddly enough, leads to my financial tip of the day: If Republicans make gains in 2012 in the Senate or the Executive-branch, then before they are sworn in…take out a big fat live insurance policy on Granny.

    perhaps the IRS can help obama with his fuzzy math.

    A new, nonpartisan analysis of President Obama’s proposed 10-year budget revealed Friday that the administration underestimated future deficits by more than $2 trillion.
    In a preliminary report, the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) calculated, “In all, deficits would total $9.5 trillion between 2012 and 2021 under the president’s budget.” The Obama budget projected $7.2 trillion deficits over the same period.
    Even more alarming, the CBO estimates that the “federal debt held by the public would double under the president’s budget, growing from $10.4 trillion (69 percent of GDP) at the end of 2011 to $20.8 trillion (87 percent of GDP) at the end of 2021

    obama is so arrogant, or stoopid.
    neither one is good.

Billions in cost overruns! Hence they rejected it. Remember the BIG DIG Michael? How many $billions did that cost Massachusetts in overruns?

    @10 Seriously? We’re going to focus on the different methodologies for getting a worse-than-weather-forecasting estimate… When we’re talking about TRILLIONS of dollars added to the debt EITHER way!?

    I guess I’m not surprised that a Republican would chide the president for projecting that we’ll be strangling ourselves slower than the CBO thinks we’ll be strangling ourselves.

    According to the CBO Director’s Blog:

    The President’s policy proposals, on net, would have the largest effect on the revenue side of the budget. Those proposals would reduce revenues, relative to CBO’s baseline projections, in every year of the coming decade.
    […]
    Most of the revenue changes would result from extending tax policies that are currently in effect or were in effect in the recent past. The tax package enacted late last year extended through December 2012 many of the tax reductions originally enacted in 2001 and 2003. The President proposes to extend those reductions permanently, with some modifications, and to permanently index for inflation the amounts of income exempt from the alternative minimum tax, starting at their 2011 levels. In addition, the President proposes that, beginning in January 2013, estate and gift taxes return permanently to the rates and exemption levels that were in effect in calendar year 2009. Those policies would reduce tax revenues and boost outlays for refundable tax credits by a total of more than $3.0 trillion over the next 10 years relative to the amounts projected in CBO’s baseline.

    Hmm… Now there’s your $3 trillion.

    Maybe if Barack O-Bush-ma weren’t such a Republican patsy, we could reduce the damn deficit.

    Y’know, “There may come a time when we elect a president at age 45 or 50, and then 20 years later the country comes up against the same kind of problems the president faced before… People would like to bring that man or woman back.”

    Dontcha miss Bill “Budget Surplus” Clinton? C’mon Republicants!–Admit it… You’re so in love with hating the Bush budget deficit; you must surely LOVE Bill Clinton. Y’know: “The enemy of my budget deficit is my friend…”

    Nope. The only thing a Republican stands for these days is to be the opposite of whatever the Democrats are. No matter what that may or may not be.

    Although he now denies that lots of informal — and some formal — coordination took place on Journolist, to his credit listserv founder Ezra Klein was a force for moderation. He stopped others from organizing a weekly message, stopped people from organizing open letters on Journolist (after they did so on one occasion), wouldn’t let those currently working in the government on the list, and seemed more reasonable than many in his remarks.

    @18

    Ok, one last comment for tonight. I took that straight from here: http://www.biztimes.com/blogs/.....llion-bill

    Not exactly a haberdashery of all things liberal and according to them:

    The amount that the state “couldn’t afford” came to about $600,000 a year after federal matching subsidies. So the state ended up losing nearly a billion dollars of federal aid, thousands of engineering and construction jobs, a newly located train manufacturer in Milwaukee and countless dollars and jobs that would have occurred as a result of transit oriented development.

    Rail proponents pointed out to Mr. Walker that we also stood to lose tens of millions of dollars that were badly needed for improvements to a section of state owned train tracks east of Madison as a part of the high-speed rail project.

    A tone deaf Mr. Walker ignored those arguments and sent to gift back to Washington.

    Now, Governor Walker is making the first payment due because of that rejection. His proposed 2011-2013 budget allocates $60 million for making the improvements to the train tracks that would have been paid for with the federal gift of $810 million for high-speed rail.

    Put another way, if Mr. Walker had taken a different track, we could have had a regional rail connection that form the first link in connecting the Twin Cities to Madison to Milwaukee to Chicago and points east for about $600,000 a year. Instead, we are sent a bill by Mr. Walker for $60 million.

    That $60 million could have paid for the operating costs of the system for the next 100 years.

    DUMBOCRATS did it too is an illogical fallacy. They did it from 1954 to 2004. Then they did it again from 2006 to 2010. And Wall Street continued to fund DUMMOCRAPTS. This is your logical cesspool FARTASS. You can look up useless junk all over the ‘Nets moron. Nothing will disprove OPENSECRETS Facts!

    Your ass got kicked so you are on the ad hominem attack. It’s okay FARTASS. I know you “mean” well!

    Putttttfucker: When you admit that Republicans are fucking assholes and lickspittle lackeys for the rich, then we can turn our fire on Democrats. Until that time, you are on total IGNORE, you fucking lout.

    Go in piece, lackey cur.

    ‘cuz all spending comes from Congress.”

    Proving yet again you total ignorance of how our government actually works. Only the House sets the budget? You are beyond ignorant. Your fetishism for GOP talking points is an embarrassment.

    Got my ass kicked? Nope you Dope. Kicked your ASS? ABSOLUTELY!

    Yes, yes this FARTASS is a fool

    The primary responsibility of the Budget Committee is the drafting and preparation of the Concurrent Resolution on the Budget, commonly referred to as the “budget resolution.” This resolution sets the aggregate levels of spending and revenue that is expected to occur in a given fiscal year. Hence each session of Congress, a budget resolution by law must be enacted by April 15.

    Please, please keep coming with the ad hominem attacks FARTASS.

    Once again, in honor of MIA cynical-

    Daily Presidential Tracking Poll
    Saturday, March 19, 2011

    The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Saturday shows that 25% of the nation’s voters Strongly Approve of the way that Barack Obama is performing his role as president. Forty-one percent (41%) Strongly Disapprove, giving Obama a Presidential Approval Index rating of -16

    Seems like lack of leadership on anything, high gas prices and rising food prices are obama’s achilles heel. you know, things that are basic requirements for one becoming president which the current fool lacks.

    # 20: Nothing wrong with light rail. It’s becoming quite popular, and as the lines get extended into a real network, more and more people will be riding it.

    I remember when the interstate highways were being put in. The first time we drove on it we could go only a mile, because bridges were still being built. Not to many people on the interstate at the time. But we didn’t cancel the project because of that. Only ignorant people cancel a project because it doesn’t work at full capacity when it’s only 1/3 built.

    I guess you are confusing the Sounder Transit rail lines with light rail. The Sounder Transit rail lines use old Burlington Northern tracks which are subject to frequent mudslides. It is, and always has been, a temporary solution until we get real passenger rail service, either using light rail or substantially improved rail lines as part of the high-speed rail project. Until then, we are always going to have problems due to railbeds surveyed and first established in the 1890’s, and not significantly revised since that time.

    59 – Rising gas prices are back big time and they’re probably here to stay (we’re running out of oil) so people will be grateful for the transit.

    @60. YLB spews: Rising gas prices are back big time
    I don’t know about you all, but one of the reasons I moved back into the city was public transit and the ability to walk or bike to grocery stores. (I used to live where the closest grocery store was 19.2 miles away on the freeway.) I like having options.
    I really feel sorry for the people in the Exurbs with the monster SUVs as their sole source of transportation.
    Those people in the outlands, with rising bills and a flat or shrinking income must be s**ting little bricks in fear. Forces beyond their control are attacking their home, their land, their dreams, their sense of safety. They must be coming unglued and lashing out in anger and fear. Does that explain the tea bagger movement?
