Below is a list of votes cast last night in the House on Obamacare at gunpoint and a takeover of one fifth of the economy by the federal government. Remember the names come the November mid-term elections. Vote them out of Congress.

Republicans are attempting to portray themselves as defenders of the Constitution and advocates of smaller government and less federal borrowing and spending. Don’t let them get away with it. A Republican Congress under Bush tripled the federal budget, started two illegal and undeclared wars, and passed the unconstitutional Patriot Act.

The only Republican worth keeping is Ron Paul.

Ron Paul: IRS Will Steal More Money To Fund Health Care

Ron Paul: IRS Will Steal More Money To Fund Health Care 220310top

Texas Congressman Ron Paul warns that last night’s passage of the health care reform bill will prompt the government to hire thousands of new IRS agents who will be used to steal money from taxpaying Americans to fund the new program.

Paul also told Fox News that the passage of Obamacare will only be repealed once the United States enters bankruptcy as a result of its exploding national deficit and runaway spending.

“Any time a government tries to give you a service or something of substance, they have to steal it from somebody else, so the whole process is immoral because it’s based on government theft, that’s why they’re hiring 16,000 more new IRS agents, because they have to steal more money,” stated the Congressman, referring to an analysis by the Joint Economic Committee and the House Ways & Means Committee that found “Up to 16,500 new IRS personnel will be needed to collect, examine and audit new tax information mandated on families and small businesses,” under the health care bill.

Paul said that the passage of Obamacare will precipitate a deepening of the economic crisis that will be “defined by the destruction of the dollar,” meaning government won’t be able to pay for anything.

“You cannot spend this kind of money, borrow this money and create new credit to finance this debt….medical care will get worse and this country will go into bankruptcy,” added Paul.

“This idea of an executive order amending the bill just is such an outrage,” said the Congressman, slamming Obama’s intention to bar federal funding for abortion after the vote as both misplaced and completely unconstitutional.

“To think that we’ve gotten to a point where we allow our presidents just to write an executive order as the law of he land, there’s nothing conceivable about that being Constitutional,” said Paul.

Throughout his campaign, Obama promised not to use executive powers and signing statements to change laws, a principle he has completely abandoned in pursuit of his big government agenda.

Congressman Paul warned that apparent efforts to prevent health care money being used to fund abortions were utterly ineffectual, saying that hospitals and clinics are just going to shift money around to fudge evidence of where the funds are being used.

On the wider argument behind government providing health care, Paul stated, “Central economic planning, if anything the 20th century proves, central economic planning fails, every country in the world today is on the verge of bankruptcy….and we’re marching on to a worldwide economic catastrophe if we’re not careful.”

EDITORIAL: IRS to control your health care

Obamacare gives tax agency broad new powers

By THE WASHINGTON TIMES

Congress is creeping closer to passing a government health care bill without telling taxpayers how they are going to pay for the crippling bureaucratic expansion. The reason Democrats are so secretive is that they are ramping up the power of the Internal Revenue Service to make Americans’ health care decisions for them.

A new report on the poor quality of service Americans receive from the IRS doesn’t augur well for the agency’s central role in government health care. With the April 15 tax day just three months away, the IRS already is warning tax filers that about three of every 10 taxpayers who phone the tax office “will likely be ignored this year.”

In its annual report to Congress, the IRS admitted that it is overwhelmed as more people are calling for help because of increasingly complex questions about the bewildering, nearly 70,000-page tax code. Twisted up in its own red tape, the IRS lamely admits that answering just 71 percent of those seeking help is a target for the agency. Efforts to improve performance will be considered a success so long as the IRS answers more calls than last year, when it picked up 64 percent of the time. One major problem with this measure is that the 64 percent figure is meaningless because it has no relationship to how many of the calls that were answered were done so correctly. Alas, taxpayers are still liable even if the IRS gives the wrong answer over the phone.

The House and Senate health care bills are more than 2,000 pages each, and both are chock-full of new regulations that further empower the IRS. So many new tax rules mean the tax system is about to get a lot more complicated, and the IRS is going to have to handle even more confused customers. In particular, the IRS will be involved in monitoring whether people have the “right level” of health insurance, which the bureaucracy will determine. Not even Sen. Charles E. Grassley, Iowa Republican, can get an answer from the IRS about this mess. “Are they capable of doing it? How much more is it going to cost to do it? Do they know what the law requires?” the senator asked. “And we never got a concrete answer from the IRS.”

If the Obama administration can’t answer Mr. Grassley’s basic queries, there’s little chance the Democrats are capable of accurately answering – or even willing to address – the myriad other questions about the implications of the IRS’ expanded role in the government health care bill. At least two fundamental concerns demand attention but are being ignored because Democrats know their plans would be undermined if they were honest about the issues. The simple questions are: Do Americans really want the IRS even more deeply involved in their lives? Do Americans really want to do battle with the IRS each year on yet another front? The answer to both is clearly no.

Taxpayers should all be afraid of the fact that the Obama administration and the IRS refuse to answer the most basic questions about the tax agency’s proposed new powers over individual health care. Democrats are secretive because the truth is going to hurt.
