Because the vast majority of Obama voters are ignorant and don't know what IRS even stands for, and the educated progressive radicals actually approve of this kind of unscrupulous tactic against who they consider the enemy. Anything for the cause.

In both cases they are the product of liberalism: radicals and Useful Idiots. There's your fundamental transformation Obama was really referencing.

Chicago style politics at its finest. Did we really expect any different from this administration?
Oh...and if the heads of these agencies don't know what's going on right under their noses (yeah, right!), they need to be fired and replaced with more competent people.

Seems the administators that are the source of the problems are left over Bush appointees. Imagine that! Yes, O would be wise to fire them all and start anew.

And the IRS will be a leading component in implementing Obamacare. People who put ideology and party above ethics and morality, then claim ignorance as an excuse when caught trampling over peoples' rights. Nice group of radicals in control of your personal health coverage, among other things.

That might shoot a thrill up the leg of fellow radical progressives like Chris Mathews, but it doesn't do much for people who see beyond the styrofoam columned Utopian Obama crap.

Maybe you should actually READ the bill - you know the one that Pelosi DEMANDED it be passed before you could find out what's in it? The IRS has been put in charge of making sure you actually have health insurance and that if you don't, enforce a penalty up to and including jail time for not purchasing your insurance. Oh that and SCOTUS agreed it was a TAX. Who handles TAXES??? hmmmmmm.....

He can't read the bill, it doesn't have pictures and the little man doesn't understand anything that doesn't have pictures. you will have to cite page and section and subsection for Little Napoleon to understand.

That's no conspiracy, progressive. I made a factual statement.

Of course the IRS will have a role in Obamacare.

[Obamacare contains no fewer than 18 tax increases, including new taxes on medical devices, insurers, and pharmaceutical companies, to name but a few.[1] According to the most recent estimates, those tax increases will raise revenue by at least $1 trillion over the next 10 years—followed by higher sums in future decades.[2]
Moreover, 12 of the 20 tax increases will affect middle-class families,[3] directly violating Barack Obama’s “firm pledge” to families making under $250,000 per year that he would not raise “any of your taxes.”]

Your turn, progressive. Prove to us how stating the IRS will play a role in Obamacare is nothing but a false conspiracy theory.

Your baseless insults and attention-seeking antics are entertaining as far as laughing at you goes, but now it's time to prove who's credible here. You have every opportunity to prove how the IRS will play no role in Obamacare. Either prove me wrong, or prove yourself the Useful Idiot moron that I am accusing you of being.

Amazing is the only word that comes to mind for this post. Amazing that someone hasn't locked you up for being totally gone in the mind. IF the head of the IRS was truly a Republican, then perhaps your "hero" Obama was the stupid one to keep a Republican on board when he is a flaming progressive???? Of course, your "perception" wouldn't allow you to see that since it wasn't done with crayons and pictures.

And, if that's true, one wonders why the useful idiot progressives here aren't calling for his head instead of supporting everything their government does to violate their rights and invade their privacy?
Things that make you go 'hmmmm.....'....
