Obamacare only fines poor & idiots

Rush Limbaugh is claiming his accountant explained to him how its illegal for the fed gov to collect unpaid fines levied on people who get fined for not having Med Care....

The IRS's only legal collection method is deduction the debt from peoples annual tax refunds, they can not tap bank accounts or garnish wages for those fines...

only idiots and poor people get tax refunds - so only idiots and poor people can get fined

if this is all accurate - sounds like an epic fail 

 

isn't it always and epic fail?

 

It is indeed true. (Their only legal means of collection.) Phone Post

riots in upcoming springs when the ghetto holiday is cancelled?

If you make the same as someone else and they get a tax refund and you don't, doesn't that make you an idiot. Phone Post 3.0

Totally accurate. The IRS has never been known to seize assets, garnish paychecks, or federally convict someone who has owed them money in the past.

You arent giving anything away. They are required to pay back whatever extra you paid throughout the year. Its wise to pay in a little extra each check to make sure that if you did make a mistake somewhere that you still wont owe anything. The only risk is that the gvmt might decide to write ious or just keep the money. If that ever happens you'll have much bigger problems than not receiving your $500. Phone Post

THIS.

They can garnish paychecks, seize assets etc to collect unpaid taxes. The Obama admin has always insisted (although the supreme court disagrees) that this is not a tax, but a fee/fine. If that's true then Rush is correct the gov't can't seize or garnish (at least not legally) your assets.
