Whenever the IRS is involved everyone knows its job is to collect taxes, taxes, taxes. What the IRS will be doing with the health care bill is to collect yet another tax. That is what the IRS does by definition. That is its purpose and has always been so. If voters have a choice to get rid of the IRS out of their lives, it will not be hard to divine what they will choose.
If the health care bill is not a tax, why is the IRS enforcing it?
When people think of the IRS, what first comes to mind? Taxes and nothing but taxes. Then they think of levies, fines and maybe jail. President Obama wants us to believe that the IRS is now going to be concerned about our health. Decades of the worst of abuses of the citizenry by the IRS will not fool the ordinary citizen into thinking this health care bill is good for his health.
Everyone, absolutely everyone, who is told the IRS will make them buy health insurance is conditioned to view the IRS as a tax enforcer. This has been so for many decades. Everyone hates the IRS.
This is not a winnable PR war for the democrats to convince ordinary citizens that the IRS gives a damn about them because it never has. They will never convince people that this health care bill is a gift from heaven when the mafia goons of the IRS are going to break kneecaps if you do not buy the insurance. That is more like extortion. It does not matter which socioeconomic sector an individual comes from. All have had the same universal experiences with the IRS which are terrible to nightmarish.
Obama is a lost cause for the democrats that is costing them the election. They will never convince anyone that the IRS is there to better their health. The IRS is a gruesome, unfair, sadistic organization and 100% of the working population knows it.
The Democrat’s PR game is a lost cause before it starts. The democrats are so stupid to think we do not know what is happening when they are sending in the IRS to terrorize the citizenry into compliance. Whether democrat, independent or republican a citizen will know this is a bad deal because that same citizen has had dealings with the IRS and all have been bad. Basically, when dealing with the IRS the proposition is that it wins and the citizen loses regardless of the citizen’s case.
Some of you may or may not remember when Hillary Clinton wanted to ram through her version of Obamacare back in 1994. People were so opposed to Hillarycare that the Democrats lost both the House and the Senate for the first time since the 83rd Congress of 1953-1954. Prior to the congressional elections of 1994 no pollster even registered the level of unhappiness the American citizen had with Hillarycare. No pollster had any idea that President Clinton and the Democrats were going to lose on such a grand scale. One of the overriding reasons was that the democrat vote turned against President Clinton in staggering numbers. This author remembers talking to long standing, hard core democrats in 1994 and all said the same thing. They did not want government dictating to them what they could do with their doctors. Democrat women especially were very, very vocal after the 1994 congressional elections that they were appalled at this level of government intrusion. What was shocking was that these ordinary democrats who had voted democrat all their lives did not hesitate to throw their party under the bus on this issue.
The polling data is very clear and consistent on Obamacare. 60% are opposed and 40% are for.
Even If It Survives the Court, the Health Care Law Is Doomed according to Scott Rasmussen.
This data has not changed since democrats rammed Obamacare through the senate in 2010. Add to that the following.
80% Expect Repeal of Health Care Law If Romney Wins , Economy, Health Care Top Voter Concerns , 66% Believe U.S. Has Too Much Government Power, Too Little Freedom , 66% Say Spending Cuts Should be Considered in All Government Programs .
If that is not enough, the news until the election in November is getting worse and worse and worse for Obama. The Census Bureau is about to release data that the US poverty rate is the highest it has been in 15 years and these poverty figures have not been seen since the 1960′s. In other words, Obama’s policies of which Obamacare is the central piece have rolled back 50 years of progress against poverty. This is a crushing bit of news.
In September 2010, the Associated Press prepared an advance report on the expected surge in the Census Bureau’s official poverty rate, which rose from 13.2% to a 15-year high of 14.3%. Their stated preoccupation was not with the associated pain, but with “the unfortunate timing for Obama and his party just seven weeks before important elections when Congress is at stake.” More
This health care bill is DOA with the American people. It is so clear that the electorate is overwhelmingly opposed to Obamacare. As in 1994, democrats and independents will show up in droves to vote against Obamacare in November. And just as in 1994, the pollsters are either too politically correct to do an honest poll or more likely rebellious democrats are fearful of telling pollsters how they will truly vote in November as they did to defeat Hillarycare in 1994. They already hate this bill 60% against and 40% for. Add the IRS to this equation and we are going to swear in President Romney by 8:00 PM on election night and kill the bill with a simple majority vote in the Senate. No way this has a chance of a snow flake in hell of surviving and neither does President Obama.
“It’s stuff like this that makes me confident. I think that there is a hidden majority out there. I really do. You know, ever since Nixon first talked about it, there’s been a Silent Majority. I think that there is a groundswell of anti-Obamaism out there that is set to explode and shock and surprise everybody in the media and on the Democrat side. I don’t think this is a tight race. ” More…
