Shove the genie back into the bottle)

 Obama's Waffen Schutzstaffel  

This year is the first time ordinary Americans will experience the complicated interactions between the health care law and taxes. Based on congressional analysis, tax preparation giant H&R Block says roughly 4 million uninsured people will pay penalties.

The IRS has warned that health-care related issues will make its job harder this filing season and taxpayers should be prepared for long call-center hold times, particularly since the GOP-led Congress has been loath to approve more money for the agency.


And the cost of being uninsured in America is going up significantly.

For 2014, the fine was the greater of $95 per person or 1 percent of household income above the threshold for filing taxes. That fine will be collected when taxpayers file their 2014 returns.

But this year the fine will jump to the greater of 2 percent of income or $325. By 2016, the average fine will be about $1,100, based on government figures.

Polls show that many taxpayers are unaware of the potential financial exposure.

Democrats (trying to shove the genie back into the bottle) seek relief from health law penalties

"Polls show that many taxpayers are unaware of the potential financial exposure."

Quick thoughts: Polls will also show that many taxpayers are unaware of their potential exposure to living in a police state, which powers our currently corrupt IRS have. That said, while a majority evidently voted Obama into office, a solid majority were, and still are, against Obamacare.  It was shoved down our throats by Democrats holding a solid majority, which in itself ought be warning enough about the fragility of a free nation. Say Amen.

Useful idiots. Lawyers and unions are going to find out the meaning of that phrase too!

That is presuming folks will be dumb enough to indicate they don't have insurance on their tax form. Better still they should file a paper form and in the place where it asks simply write in ALL CAPS - TELL BARACK TO GO FUCK HIMSELF
