Treasury Inspector General Outlines A Brand New (Obama) IRS Scandal

Built into the Obamacare bill is a provision requiring the IRS by the end of June to notify people who did not have the minimum required health insurance coverage (MEC) that they were non-compliant and to inform them what was available via their state's exchanges. According to a report released by the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration on Thursday (report embedded below), the IRS sent the letters late, skipped some people who were supposed to get the letter, and "misled" people about the cost of plans. Note: misled is government doublespeak for lying.

In other words, there must be snowballs in hell, because a federal agency tried to save money (by not informing people they might have to pay a penalty in the future).

The second group who didn't receive the letter seems to have a more reasonable rationale. 1.9 million individuals who filed a TY 2015 return and reported an exemption from MEC or reported an SRP, were treated as a market test control group. The Treasury Dept. randomly selected these people for the purpose of measuring the effectiveness of the letters. They will be compared to the people who received the letters to determine if the letters motivated people to purchase the required insurance.
