Lose Insurance Under Obamacare, Speak Up, IRS Audits You
It was tragic that Bill Elliot of South Carolina was stricken with cancer; reassuring that his excellent insurance covered his expensive but medically advanced treatment and he was doing well.
And then came another tragedy--in the form of an elitist, totalitarian, Know It All Government, almost worse than the cancer. The Affordable Care Act, Obamacare, deemed Elliot's fine insurance policy unacceptable--probably because it didn't include maternity coverage--and offered him another policy with higher, "affordable" premiums that Elliot couldn't afford. As he told Megyn Kelly of Fox News, he didn't want to burden his family with the unaffordable affordable premiums so he decided to do without insurance and "let nature take its course."
But then...good news! Health insurance broker C. Stephen Tucker learned about Elliot's plight from Fox News and helped him keep his insurance.
Uh, no! Another tragedy. Mustn't upset the Big Man in the Big White (racist, I know) House from Chicago who wasn't joking more than four years ago when he told the Arizona State University Board of Regents that it was good he received an honorary degree from the school otherwise they "will soon learn all about being audited by the IRS." Yep, suddenly--and not coincidentally--Elliot and Tucker are being audited by the IRS, joining a list of other organizations and individuals who are also suddenly enduring an IRS audit or other problems after disagreeing with Obama such as several Tea Party and conservative groups, prominent black physician Dr. Ben Carson who has publicly criticized Obamacare, Catholic professor Ann Hendershott who also had the audacity to publicly disagree with Obama and even the billionaire owners of the Chicago Cubs.
Remember, President Barack Obama (D) learned his politics in Chicago with its Chicago Way's "progressive politics" as he bluntly explained in June, 2008 by paraphrasing Eliot Ness,
" 'If they bring a knife to the fight, we bring a gun,' Obama said in Philadelphia last night."

Would the IRS actually go after a cancer patient, who had voted for Obama initially, just for appearing on FOX and now being sharply critical of Obama and suggesting that he resign for his health plan lie?
Under the current insane state of affairs, where the IRS was used to silence the opposition, it's unfortunately entirely possible. The fact that we are even having this discussion shows how badly Obama has undermined confidence in government institutions and the rule of law.
Americans always hated the IRS, but it's been a while since they believed that the IRS was targeting them for their political views.
The United States desperately needs to restore the rule of law and confidence in its institutions otherwise we are facing a serious crisis in which Americans begin viewing government agencies as tools of political repression.
Yes, where is the rule of law? We seem to have a rule of law according to One Individual. His Imagined Imperial Dictator rules unilaterally, disregarding Congress as he alone decides which laws to enforce (his), which to ignore (immigration, interim appointments) and which to suspend (Obamacare) all of which is highly illegal as this adjunct Constitutional college teacher should know. And yet he continues relatively unimpeded.
Is anyone, any organization going to call him out, sue for illegality?
As for me, I was audited years ago.
