The wrecking ball swung again toward the crumbling Obamacare edifice yesterday. Ironically, it continues to be the Obama administration that is operating the heavy machinery.

Barack Obama Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius announced, in the form of a letter to Democratic senators, that Obamacare’s individual mandate tax will be waived in 2014 for persons who had their policies canceled in 2013 due to Obamacare.

At this point, after months of on-the-fly pronouncements, delays, and exemptions (often announced, not coincidentally, in the days just before a major national holiday), perhaps nothing should surprise us anymore about Obamacare’s disastrous rollout. But yesterday’s announcement is still startling because of what it says about the state of the president’s signature domestic legislation. The law is falling apart before our eyes.

Come to think of it, the IRS and Vendors across the Govt spectrum bilk the Taxpayer too. It's Professional Courtesy.

Yes Bill, there are many Obama staff members that OWE us or are breaking the laws that they are supposed to uphold. In this administration instead of upholding the laws they are holding us up! Liars and thieves!

Additionally Knickman, anyone who has not paid federal or state taxes should be excluded from consideration for appointment to public office. That would, of course, had excluded some of Obama's appointees, including the treasury secretary.

Continued: So if you don't pay your taxes, you have lower overhead which means you can bid lower. These scofflaws should be disqualified.

And its unfair to competitive vendors that pay their taxes. The company I work for lost a bid to another vendor who has numerous tax liens against them a few years ago.

I wonder how all of those new agents are doing? If the IRS cannot do the job that they are tasked with now what happens when they are supposed to enforce the Obamacare mandated insurance scheme?
