Obamacare Gives Health Bureaucrats Access to Your Tax Records

28 08 2009

Thanks to Declan McCullagh at CBS News Blogs for pointing out another horrible aspect of the Obamacare plan.  This time, it has to do with healthcare bureaucrats having access to your IRS tax records. (Read  Declan’s blog story here.)

Section 431(a) of the bill says that the IRS must divulge taxpayer identity information, including the filing status, the modified adjusted gross income, the number of dependents, and “other information as is prescribed by” regulation. That information will be provided to the new Health Choices Commissioner and state health programs and used to determine who qualifies for “affordability credits.”

Section 245(b)(2)(A) says the IRS must divulge tax return details — there’s no specified limit on what’s available or unavailable — to the Health Choices Commissioner. The purpose, again, is to verify “affordability credits.”

Section 1801(a) says that the Social Security Administration can obtain tax return data on anyone who may be eligible for a “low-income prescription drug subsidy” but has not applied for it.

There seems to be no limit on the intrusions the Democrats are willing to make into your private life.  From deciding what healthcare you should have to spreading around your tax records, they think they’re entitled to all of it.

By the way, if you’d like to read the whole stinking pile of manure for yourself, go here.
