Incredibly, President Obama’s biggest expansion of government is still looming on the horizon: his Washington, D.C. takeover of our health care. ObamaCare’s ever-increasing cost is now estimated at over $1.8 trillion for just the first decade (and since when did official cost estimates of government programs ever prove accurate?) Aside from the cost, the expansive new regulations in the law hang over the heads of American citizens and business owners alike, threatening to bury them in red tape.
Most ominously, the federal agency that will be enforcing all of ObamaCare's mandates, taxes, and rules and regulations will be the Internal Revenue Service. If we cannot trust the IRS to refrain from an unfair assault on groups that oppose President Obama's big government policies, then how on earth can Americans trust the IRS to oversee their personal health care? That's a question we will be asking folks across the nation in the coming days and weeks.
Not to keep anyone awake at night or anything, but Sarah Ingram, the very person who oversaw the IRS division currently under investigation, was promoted and is now the person in charge of enforcing the President's new health care law. Sleep tight.
