Your ♡bamaCare!!! Fail of the Day

FORM

Hate doing your taxes? Wait until you see how ♡bamaCare!!! is going to help you out with that:

“We’re having some trepidation,” said Judy Solomon, vice president for health policy at the liberal Center for Budget and Policy Priorities. “This is going to be another new thing just like the roll out of HealthCare.gov.”

Last month, the Obama administration released drafts of the forms employers and individuals will have to fill out. But those leave unanswered many questions about how it’ll all work. The details are expected to be included in “practical” instructions the agency plans to release later this month that will detail how to complete the new forms, the IRS said.

At this point, the new forms look “very daunting” for taxpayers, said Mark Ciaramitaro, vice president of health care services at H&R Block. “Overall, we expect the complexity level is just going to go up for a significant group of moderate- to low-income people, whether they got insurance through the marketplace or they didn’t.”

Remember when ♡bamaCare!!! was going to save money by reducing waste and inefficiency and paperwork and stuff?

Good times.

I would make it a federal offense, punishable by mandatory minimum jail time, for federal employees or elected officials to use tax preparation services. Then we’d see some tax simplification we could all live with.
