IRS Spent $5 Million Coaxing Americans to Buy Obamacare
OCTOBER 03, 2017
Judicial Watch has recovered documents showing the IRS spent $5 million on notices to taxpayers urging them to purchase insurance under the Affordable Care Act.
The documents reveal that the IRS coordinated with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and the White House Social and Behavioral Sciences Team in an effort to coax Americans to sign up for Obamacare under the individual mandate.
As Judicial Watch noted, more than $5 million was spent drafting and sending the notices to taxpayers who “legally refused to sign up for Obamacare and elected to pay the penalty or individuals who claimed an exemption.”
