Who Is The Irs More Likely To Target On That Obamacare Mandate The Old Or The Young?

Postby Wendlesora » Tue Sep 26, 2017 4:09 am

It doesn't make any sense to target the old since they are more likely to be sick and utilize the health care system. So if the old and infirm aren't filing their taxes because they don't have insurance and they don't want to pay a fine. The IRS like our border patrol agents will be under pressure from the Government to look the other way. Its already happening with the border patrol.


Oh, we can't enforce the borders because it costs too much money. So the same thing is going to happen when it comes to making the old, sick and poor who refuse to file taxes to avoid those Obamacare fines.


Personally I think its the young who will be targeted by the IRS because they are far less likely to file for health care services. Any insurance company that has more old people vs young people is an insurance company that is bankrupt. So its the young who will be targeted with a vengeance. Those student loans and other expenses are not going to protect you either.

Your premise is false.
The IRS won't target anyone.
Your team lost, and America won.

The old will be eligible for Medicare so they probably won't be bothered by the individual mandate.
Usually those who choose not to have insurance are the young who feel that they're healthy and want to save the money.
Part of the point of the individual mandate is to balance out the costs of unhealthy people by getting more healthy people into the program.

That being said, the IRS has limited tools with which to enforce the individual mandate.
The creators of the law purposely designed it to limit the ability which the IRS has to "go after" people.
They can't take you to court or garnish your salary for back taxes related to the individual mandate.
Basically all they can do is ask you to pay and withhold any refund you might be due until you're paid up.

It will be the young people they go after, I would love to see the look on their face when they do.

A dollar is a dollar from wherever it comes.
In countries that have centralized healthcare, all who pay taxes pay for it, and pay through the nose.
Obama has tweaked the normal procedure by involving efficient and experienced health insurers, as opposed to dumb government bureaucrats, but they still need the support of the young to pay for healthcare that they might not need right now, just as they need the contributions of the young to pay for pensions that they do not need right now.
That is collectivism.
Do you like the notion of collectivism but not the cost that it entails?

The concept of the insurance exchange is to pool the risk with young and old and sick and healthy to get lower rates. The IRS will function as it always has, to collect taxes and impose taxes. If you buy insurance you get a tax credit, otherwise it is a tax liability when you file your return next year. The taxes paid will go to subsidize those people who buy insurance to help pay their premiums.

The year 2014 (next year) is when the mandatory coverage item kicks in for the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA, P.L.111-148) and its companion bill Health Care and Education Reconciliation Act (HCERA, P.L.111-152) in the provision ruled Constitutional by the very conservative Chief Justice John Roberts---and the target is only the 1% of the population who try to game the system and FREELOAD even though they can easily afford to have health care coverage (key point: These few are those who are healthy and well-to-do, and who can AFFORD to have insurance coverage but choose NOT to, trying to wait until they become ill or injured to show up for free-bies, passing the costs of their care onto others, like those who do have insurance, through higher premiums.
So you are against personal responsibility?

The IRS will review the medical care received by these above-moderate-income freeloaders and simply assess a year-end FEE FOR SERVICES RECEIVED---which then prevents the cost of the freeloaders' care from being passed on down to others through higher premiums or higher hospital costs.
You gudda problem widdat?

The IRS would not play around while doing their interest. even in spite of the undeniable fact that the Tea occasion is way less ordinary than Syphilis suitable now, no you're able to be singled out by utilising the IRS. It became into incorrect while the N.A.A.C.P became into singled out in 2004 while Dubya became into president and it continues to be incorrect today! i think of the republicans have been doing greater effectual with the Kenya socialist Muslim without are start certificates tale. a minimum of the had the loopy those with leave out spelt signs and warning signs out marching, lol.
