Quote:Gov. Paul LePage used his weekly radio address to blast President Obama's health care law and described the Internal Revenue Service as the "new Gestapo."

The IRS description was a reference to a provision in the Affordable Care Act that requires Americans not insured by their employers or Medicaid to buy health insurance or pay an annual penalty when filing their tax returns. The provision, known more broadly as the individual mandate, was the subject of a multi-state lawsuit, but was recently upheld by the U.S. Supreme Court.

LePage said the court decision has "made America less free."

"We the people have been told there is no choice," he said. "You must buy health insurance or pay the new Gestapo -- the IRS."

That's coming IMO. I've read it's embedded in this healthcare act, though that may be BS. Bottom line is that will replace cash, and if you get out of line, they simply turn your chip off. Can't say I care for where this all seems to be heading.

He's exactly right. He said it, whatever his reasons. Americans can't afford it. America can't afford it. 23% of GDP by 2016? Can't work.
