Matt Drudge has a link today regarding the new ObamaCare "personal health ID" requirements you and I will have to send over to the nice folks at the IRS once ObamaCare is implemented.
One piece of paper to rule them all...
Obamacare IRS Form
More from Americans for Tax Reform:
When Obamacare’s individual mandate takes effect in 2014, all Americans who file income tax returns must complete an additional IRS tax form. The new form will require disclosure of a taxpayer’s personal identifying health information in order to determine compliance with the Affordable Care Act’s individual mandate.There was a time in America (not even that long ago, frankly) when this type of infringement upon our privacy and liberties would have been met with near-violent revulsion. Americans would not have accepted garbage like this. Think about it, for God's sake, our forefathers risked their lives to protest a miniscule tea tax from the British crown.
As confirmed by IRS testimony to the tax-writing House Committee on Ways and Means, “taxpayers will file their tax returns reporting their health insurance coverage, and/or making a payment”.
So why will the Obama IRS require your personal identifying health information?
Simply put, there is no way for the IRS to enforce Obamacare’s individual mandate without such an invasive reporting scheme. Every January, health insurance companies across America will send out tax documents to each insured individual. This tax document—a copy of which will be furnished to the IRS—must contain sufficient information for taxpayers to prove that they purchased qualifying health insurance under Obamacare.
Today we've given it all away with nary a whimper:
On the form, lines 3-4 show where taxpayers will disclose their personal identifying health information.
