Convention of States!


IRS spent $5 million to press Americans to buy Obamacare

A new report from the Washington Examiner shows just how far the federal government will go to modify the behavior of the American people.

Documents obtained by Judicial Watch found that the IRS spent $5 million taxpayer dollars to fund a letter-writing campaign designed to encourage people to purchase health insurance under Obamacare:

"Attached are drafts of the letters that IRS will send to selected taxpayers who paid a penalty for failure to have coverage or who claimed an exemption from the coverage requirement for tax year 2015," said Janet McCubbin, director of individual taxation at the IRS. "As you know, we are planning to send several different versions of the letter to see which types of messages work best."

To craft and develop these letters, the IRS spent an estimated $5 million.

"The law requires people to have a minimum level of health coverage, qualify for an exemption, or pay a penalty when they file their taxes," the letter read. "Our records show you claimed an exemption from the health coverage requirement when you filed your 2015 taxes. If you or someone in your family doesn't have health insurance or an exemption next year, you'll likely owe a penalty for 2017. We are writing to make sure you know how you can avoid this penalty by signing up for health insurance or getting an exemption."

The feds believe they know what’s best for the American people. According to them, Americans are sheep who cannot be trusted to make good decisions. That’s why the feds must continue increasing their power and imposing their will in the daily lives of We the People.

It’s time to fight back. The feds won’t stop until they achieve total regulatory control, which is why we must call an Article V Convention of States -- now.

A Convention of States can propose constitutional amendments that strip D.C. of its power and authority. These amendments can return decision-making power back to the states and the people, allowing residents of particular communities to make the laws that suit them best.

The feds control healthcare, and Republicans failed to push them back. What freedom will D.C. go after next?
