by Brad Nelson 10/28/13 • According to Rush Limbaugh, this is what you need to do to avoid paying the penalty if you don’t enroll in Obama and the Democrat’s illegal and unconstitutional (and Orwellian) socialist scheme called “The Affordable Care Act.” And if you don’t think this is a form of socialism and that it is merely “social justice,” then I have some nice swampland in Florida to sell you.
Here’s what Rush says:
Anyway, [my accountant] said to me that, according to the law, the only way that the government can collect the fine or penalty for you not buying insurance is if you are owed a tax refund. If you do not owe a tax refund, they cannot go into your bank account or anywhere else and get that money. Now, the sad thing is that most people file their taxes to get a refund ’cause they think they’re screwing the government, and they’re not…
Therefore, the only way that they can collect the penalty or the fine is by taking money from your refund. If you are not owed a refund, they cannot get money from you. They can’t issue a lien. They can’t garnish your wages. They can’t use any of the normal procedures available to them if you owe them money, even though the Supreme Court has said it’s a tax. So for those of us — I mean, folks, I’m in fat city. I’m in fat city because I always structure to where I owe money. Well, not entirely. There have been years. But if you structure your taxes so that you do not get a refund, you do not have to buy insurance and you do not have to pay a fine ’cause they can’t collect it from you if you don’t have a refund due.
