The Fascistic States of America

Via Mark Steyn:

A couple of weeks back, cancer patient Bill Elliot, in a defiant appearance on Fox News, discussed the cancelation of his insurance and what he intended to do about it. He’s now being audited.

Insurance agent C Steven Tucker, who quaintly insists that the whimsies of the hyper-regulatory bureaucracy do not trump your legal rights, saw the interview and reached out to Mr Elliot to help him. And he’s now being audited.

It’s true.

The cancer victim:

[I]n an interview with Sara Marie Brenner this week, Bill Elliot revealed that he is now being audited by the IRS for the tax year of 2009:

The thuggery never stops with this administration. All Bill Elliot did was tell the truth about his insurance and how he’s being targeted by the IRS because he spoke out against Obamacare.

And the cancer victim’s insurance agent:

One afternoon a few weeks ago, Chicago insurance broker and ObamaCare critic C. Steven Tucker happened to see a cancer patient tell Fox News’ Megyn Kelly about losing his health care insurance policy. Tucker looked up the South Carolina resident on Facebook and offered help him find health care coverage immediately so his badly-needed cancer treatments could continue.

Tucker and cancer patient Bill Elliott connected and Tucker was able to find Elliott the help he needed. Elliott publicly thanked Tucker for his life-saving assistance, but little did either know they would soon be fighting another battle – this one with the Internal Revenue Service.

Wednesday, the day before Thanksgiving, both Tucker and Elliott received official notifications that they were being audited by the Internal Revenue Service.

Elliott, who is a retired government worker, was told he would be facing audit in 2014. Tucker says the IRS letter to him demands $4000 from 2003 and $2000 from 2010 be paid before December 26, 2013.

The seeming coincidence of two vaguely connected persons getting notice they are being investigated by the federal government is sending shock waves throughout the web. A growing number is wondering if the message is “Don’t publicly embarrass or challenge ObamaCare, or you could face the IRS.”

Who can’t scrounge up $6,000 on a month’s notice in the holiday season?

This is the same unreformed IRS that denied the free speech and free assembly rights of conservative Americans in the 2012 election cycle, by the way, thereby stealing the election for the namesake of ObamaCare. Webster’s defines fascism as “a way of organizing a society in which a government ruled by a dictator controls the lives of the people and in which people are not allowed to disagree with the government”.

Any argument with that word here? I didn’t think so.

PS: Why was I not surprised to read this weekend the first mainstream media plea for abolishing presidential term limits? Or that the Obamas plan to remain in DC after his term in office? One way or another, he’s not going away.

    The most disturbing piece of this, BTL, is that there is nowhere to hide. If health care was bad enough for a given Canadian, he or she could go to the United States. If an oppressive ruling class took over, say, Ukraine, you could flee to the United States. Where in the world are we going to be able to access both health care and political freedom?
