You Man the same unknown that gave an inspiring speech that, eventually opened the door for his run at the presidency back in 2004, at the Democratic Convention? That nobody sure turned out to be somebody! Unlike the nobody y'all overhyped as VP in 08 or, the nobody y'all presented as presidential material in 2012! There's an old church song that goes

I'm just a nobody
trying to tell everybody
about somebody, who can change anybody

Talk about prophecy! Obama's election dominations made the good better &, those with bad hearts show their true colors. Which side so you belong to?

Ah Fox News. I was wondering why all the lemmings were fired up this morning, some of their headlines -

OBAMACARE WOES
- Insurers get faulty data
from glitch-riddled website

- Obamacare site wasn't tested until week before launch

Tell you what folks, for those of you using Internet Explorer go in to advanced settings and check the box to 'show a notification for every javascript error' and then surf the web and see how many you get, you can even go to your beloved Fox News site where you will get about a dozen before you can get the home page to load.

Topix throws errors all the time.

Technically speaking these are glitches.

Trust me it will get very annoying and you will soon be unchecking that button very shortly.

December 16,1998 WASHINGTON (CNN)-- From the Oval Office, President Clinton told the nation Wednesday evening why he ordered new military strikes against Iraq and starts war with Iraq.

"Saddam (Hussein) must not be allowed to threaten his neighbors or the world with NUCLEAR ARMS, poison gas or biological weapons," Clinton said.

Our mission is to attack Iraq's NUCLEAR, chemical and biological weapons programs and its military capacity to threaten its neighbors," said Clinton.

Do you know the only two changes in Obamacare the Republicans settled on and asked for to avoid a shutdown?
I'd really like to know if you know this.
There is only one. Since the "hub" already links to the IRS to verify income eligibility. The only change is that the HHS Secretary write a letter explaining what her department is already doing.

I'm not buying any insurance from the exchange. People who don't like it can get insurance elsewhere. No one is holding a gun to their head to use "a crappy Network/infrastructure".

You're right, some things never change. Another day older and deeper in debt.

This has to be one of your dumbest posts ever..In answer to each accusation...First one. What president needlessly lied us there to begin with?. Second one...Bush- Cheney needed a war to spike their failing leadership while deflecting from their total incompetence..Third one...I do believe that Obama pretty much stuck to the guidelines of removal that were set by Bush...Last one..Only a total moron and a person that has no connection to reality would even go to the Obama didn't care and the sacrifice part...

Ever single death and casualty there belongs to Bush and his band of chicken hawks. People like you that show so little real concern for the sacrificed make me sick. You are pretend patriots...When in essence yours is power greed and a total ideolog willing to believe any and everything to the point of fanaticism. You and those like you have regressed to the point of simply slinging shit and hatred with never a thought of right or wrong good or bad. Disgusting cowards that never show any concern for the ones you so willingly sacrificed. Pathetic.

Among the IRS' biggest tasks will be to:

*Collect information from employers and insurers: The ACA requires employers to tell the IRS whether an employee has insurance.

At the end of the year, insurers must provide the IRS and policyholders a form verifying coverage status and individuals must include those forms with their federal tax return.

*Figure out who qualifies for subsidies or Medicaid: When a person applies for coverage on an exchange, the information he provides will be cross-checked with income, job and coverage information from the IRS. That cross-check will determine whether someone is eligible for a premium credit, or if he's eligible for Medicaid, which the ACA expanded.

While the IRS is authorized to share income and other data with the exchanges and some federal and state agencies, those third parties may only use that information for determining eligibility for coverage and subsidies, according to the TIGTA report.

*Determine who must pay a penalty: Starting in 2014, individuals must buy qualified health insurance or pay a penalty. Some groups are exempt from the new rule, including those whose income is so low that they're not required to file a tax return.

In 2014, the penalty will be no more than $285 per family or 1% of income, whichever is greater. In 2015, the cap rises to $975 or 2% of income. And by 2016, the penalty would be up to $2,085 per family or 2.5% of income, whichever is greater. The dollar amounts for a single adult would be $95,$325 and then $695 during that same time period.

(Sheesh...$2085 per family sure helps those struggling already.)

The law prohibits the IRS from putting liens or levies on your property to collect the penalty. It may, however, be able to withhold your future refunds if you don't pay.

(In other words, they're fairly impotent to collect penalties.)

*Penalize employers that don't provide affordable coverage: Starting next year, employers with 50 or more employees must provide affordable, qualified coverage to employees. If they don't, they have to pay an "Employer Shared Responsibility payment." The IRS must establish rules and guidance for employers in this regard and collect the penalty from them.

The Supreme Court ruled Obamacare a tax law, so sounds to me like the IRS has a pretty big role - enforce and punish.
