Putting the IRS in charge or Obamacare seems like a mistake of epic proportions, especially with the recent knowledge that the IRS has been harassing Tea Party groups, pro-constitution groups, pro-life organizations, Pro-Israel, and religious institutions.
I foresee the following happening.
Patient to Obamacare IRS office: I need medical attention.
Obamacare IRS office: Yes, I can help you with that. I just need you to fill out these forms.
Patient: Holy crap, I’m going to need treatment for carpal tunnel too after filling these out.
IRS office: You’ll need to fill out a different set of forms for those, let me get those for you. *hands patient a stack of paperwork twice the size of the first one*
Patient: *begins filling out paperwork* Hey, why do you need to know what political party I’m registered too? AND who I voted for last election?
IRS office: It’s standard procedure.
Patient: Okay…wait, you need to know what books I’ve read in the last year?!
IRS: With a summary of the content as well, yes.
Patient: You want a book report?
Patient: -Procedure, I know. Hey, you can’t ask me if I own guns. That has nothing to do with my medical needs.
I am getting tired of people comparing the Tea Party to Occupy Wall Street. Now I am not fully in support of the Tea Party, while I like what they stand for they need to prove to me that they can last beyond a single election…at that point I will whole heartedly say I am a Tea Party member (also assuming it stays solely focused on economics and ignores social issues). And the Tea Party hates the fact that the government gave bailouts to banks because it was a bad economic move…Occupy Wall Street hates that banks took the money (not so much with the government giving money)…but this is really the only place where the two movements kinda sorta touch…as an example of a Venn Diagram these two movements are a poor case. The Tea Party is asking for government to get out of the economy, the Occupy idiots are asking for the government to take charge.
Occupy Wall Street = Nothing like the Tea Party. There, now can we move on from making these comparisons CNN and MSNBC?
