$67 Million Missing From ObamaCare Slush Fund


I remember a day when $67 million disappearing was a big story, which is probably the biggest story of all. Today this is a somewhat of a yawner. I actually came across this and thought about skipping it. What has become of us as a nation when the IRS can lose $67 million and it's no big deal? There are so many outrages on so many fronts these days that it's easy to overlook the keystone cop routine that is OUR GOVERNMENT playing with OUR MONEY.

The IRS is unable to account for $67 million spent from a slush fund established for Obamacare implementation, according to a Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA) report released today.

The "Health Insurance Reform Implementation Fund" (HIRIF) was tucked into Obamacare in order to give the IRS money to enforce the tax provisions of the healthcare law. The fund, totaling some $1 billion of taxpayer money, was used to roll out enforcement mechanisms for the approximately 50 tax provisions of Obamacare.

According to the report: "Specifically, the IRS did not account for or attempt to quantify approximately $67 million [from the slush fund] of indirect ACA costs incurred for Fiscal Years 2010 through 2012."

America has transcended into a different reality. Whatever happened to the IRS scandal? I'm still scratching my head over that one. But then again, this is the same agency that mailed over 20,000 refund checks to a single address. Should we be surprised? Maybe not, but we should be angry.

I look around and things that would have caused near riots 30 years ago are just shrugged off as normal activity in our government today.

And therein lies the problem… The fact that we haven't reacted a little more irrationally, a little more often, has put the people of our nation in a position where the government has become our ruling class. They have forgotten that they work for us.

If you ran a business and $67 came up missing you would likely be chewing on someone's butt and it may end up with them losing their jobs. It's just business.

Yet, we can let these clowns lose $67 million, and nothing is done, nothing at all.

Sometimes I sit in my chair, eating Fritos, and imagine that I am the character from Walking Tall carrying a big stick through Washington. Sometimes I get angry enough to feel I could be that guy. I have seen so many old WWE matches that I can do "The People's Elbow," made famous by Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, with my eyes closed.

I'm your guy. I'm that guy. I'm our hope.

But then again, doing something would require me getting out of my chair.

This is us America. This is what we have become, and we allow them to treat us this way. We beg them to treat us this way.

You don't ask for respect in this world.

You take it.
