Anger? Wait 'til people do their taxes next year?

In about 9 months, Americans will come face to face with ObamaCare. It will happen when they sit down to fill out their tax returns.  My guess is that most people will be angry.

ObamaCare and the IRS will work hand in hand in the implementation of the law, as Byron York points out today:

"A look at the text of the health care law reveals that much of it consists of amending the Internal Revenue Code to give the IRS more power. When Obamacare goes fully into effect in January, every American will have to prove to the IRS that he or she has "qualifying" health coverage, meaning coverage with a list of features approved by Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius. That will be done by submitting a document to the IRS, something like a W-2, to confirm coverage."

There is more. In simple language, the IRS will be the manager of the new law. 

The IRS will ask you questions that you thought heretofore belonged in the very confidential relationship between doctors and patients. 

The IRS will also need to hear about "raises" and changes in your financial condition. 

Didn't a bunch of colonists throw tea in the harbor the last time that something like this happenned?

The IRS and HHS will monitor the people through a "database," or a huge intrusion into your personal, financial and health information.

Again, my good guess is that most Democrats who voted for this monstrosity will shut off their phones next spring. They won't like what voters are telling them. 

Many shocked Democrats will likely introduce bills in the US Senate to stop the implementation. 

Others will blame their "staff" for not telling them everything that was in the bill.  

Some will blame Bush for invading Iraq.

Some will insult our intellegence, like Mr Axelrod this morning:

"The government is simply too big for President Obama to keep track of all the wrongdoing taking place on his watch, his former senior adviser, David Axelrod, told MSNBC. "Part of being president is there's so much beneath you that you can't know because the government is so vast," he explained."

So let me get this straignt.  The government is too big for one man to keep track SO we want to make the government bigger SO that he has more trouble keeping up with it?

Welcome to the era of big government.  This is what big government looks like. Now let the Democrats explain why this is better than what we had before.
