    If you don't pay your fine, the IRS will target you, and either take your property, garnish your wages, or place you in jail. Think about that. That's who will manage health care.

    A list? What happens to students who don't study, or do homework? Lower the grades of honor roll students, and give points to the irresponsible ones? Level out the grades? Life has never been equal, and you don't punish responsible people.

    I still do not understand Obamacare. If somebody does not have health insurance they are fined about 2 thousand a year. If they do not pay this fine what then ?

    Mark B,
    we'd LOVE for BO to try to revitalize the economy rather than put a damper on it. Everything he does from Obamcare to EPA regulations to shutting down the domestic coal industry to stopping the pipeline hamper rather than help the economy.

    BO is an economic disaster!

    Someone shows up at my house 118 times I'm probably going to have an idea what he is up to.

    I'll be happy to declare I'm wrong.

    Till then, do some research on communism, and compare to the transformation occurring to this country. Please explain how our freedoms are being preserved, and enriched.

    Please find some evidence to debunk "The door to communism".

    I would be thankful to you.

    All these meetings between the IRS officals and the Obama administration - yet no one can name WHO gave the ok for the IRS to target conservative tea party organizations and those who gave large donations to the Romney campaign?

    Mark B,
    Of course everyone wants the Obama administration to succeed in revitalizing the economy, but that is not what we are getting. Sure it bottomed out and now just treading water, but what policy of Obama's has helped with that? It is very interesting that the commissioner for the IRS was meeting at the WH twice a week( given the current scandal in the IRS). Far more than any other official. I'm sure if the IRS was specifically targeting you, you would not be so forgiving. It is interesting to see that people can no longer defend Obama. The only thing they can do is plead to the public and complain that people just want to see the Obama administration fail.

    "The door to communism"? Please. I look forward to the day when worf declares he is glad to have been wrong, but I won't hold my breath. Perhaps in the meantime he could give his personal list of people who should get no healthcare.

    No! I didn't vote for this.

    Government controlled health care is opening the door to communism with the IRS being the police force.

    Control of education, peoples wealth through redistribution, and health care, will lead to the change promised during the campaign, and level the playing field to an impoverished state.

    It's not what they say, but what they DO. Hope I'm wrong about things.

    I'm sure that worf, like all loyal Americans, wants the administration to succeed in revitalizing the economy and improving foreign relations. After all, we're all in this together, right?

    That's at least two times a week, and Obama has no idea what's going on? Hmm!

    Must be discussing how Obama Care will be forced on people, and punishment for non-compliance.

    The IRS will be in our faces.

    May our Obama voters get what they voted for.
