A man who attempted to sign up for Obamacare online was told that a fine of over $4,000 dollars a year for refusing to take out mandatory health insurance could be taken directly from his bank account, and that his drivers license would be suspended and a federal tax lien placed against his home, according to an entry on the HealthCare.gov Facebook page.

If true, the implementation of Obamacare is going to be a whole lot more draconian than Americans have been led to believe.
Gov Targets Private Bank Accounts: Seizes Funds Of Innocent Americans Without Charge or Trial
September 27, 2013
Do you still keep a hefty portion of your savings in a U.S. bank?
If so you may want to reconsider your options. Because if the following report from the Institute of Justice is any indication, nothing you hold in private bank account is safe anymore.
Can the government use civil forfeiture to take your money when you have done nothing wrong—and then pocket the proceeds?
The IRS thinks so.
For over 30 years, Terry Dehko has successfully run a grocery store in Fraser, Mich., with his daughter Sandy. In January 2013, without warning,the federal government used civil forfeiture to seize all of the money from the Dehkos’ store bank account (more than $35,000) even though they’ve done absolutely nothing wrong.
Their American Dream is now a nightmare.
Federal civil forfeiture law features an appalling lack of due process: It empowers the government to seize private property from Americans without ever charging, let alone convicting, them of a crime. Perversely, the government then pockets the proceeds while providing no prompt way to get a court to review the seizure.
On September 25, 2013, Terry and Sandy teamed up with the Institute for Justice to fight back in federal court. A victory will vindicate not just their right to be free from abusive forfeiture tactics, but the right of every American not to have their property wrongfully seized by government.

What ever happened with the Benghazi coverup? What about the IRS scandal? How about the Department of Homeland Security ammo buildup? We don’t hear about these incidents anymore now that President Obama is threatening to attack Syria. How convenient, the government crisis to coverup multiple crises.
Sounds familiar doesn’t it? Diversion tactics used by the left to lure us away from government deception. False flags and events contrived to make us forget about what the government is doing behind our backs. Using every situation they can to keep the American people from remembering their injustice. And it seems to be working. How many people are talking about Benghazi, the IRS or the DHS? I used to hear it everyday, now I never do.
Expert Says 2013 on Pace to See Highest Number of U.S. Expatriations Ever
- By Liam Pleven and Laura Saunders
The number of U.S. taxpayers renouncing citizenship or permanent-resident status surged to a record high in the second quarter, as new laws aimed at cracking down on overseas assets increase the cost of complying and the risk of a taxpayer misstep.
A total of 1,130 names appeared on the latest list of renunciations from the Internal Revenue Service, according to Andrew Mitchel, a tax lawyer in Centerbrook, Conn., who tracks the data. That is far above the previous high of 679, set in the first quarter, and more than were reported in all of 2012.
Nation needs something that ‘can never be used as a political weapon’
The IRS gives annual bonuses of $86.9 million per year but this year, the new acting commissioner of the IRS, Danny Werfel, told employees that those will be eliminated.
“In this unprecedented budget situation, I do not believe the IRS should pay performance awards,” said Werfel, but he added, “The elimination of bonuses was not a reflection on the quality of work done by the agency.”
He said that eliminating the bonuses would prevent furlough days later in the year, as well.
The IRS has come under heavy scrutiny since it became obvious that it was targeting minority groups, such as tea party groups and Jewish organizations.

Welcome to the “New World” of transparency. Isn’t that what Obama promised us during both of his presidential elections? Everyone will know what the government is doing. We as citizens of the United States of America, will know exactly what the government is doing and what it is up to. Right?!!
Obama’s government is anything but transparent. The evidence is quickly stacking up against the promises he made to the American people. Where do I start? NSA collecting phone conversations, email, web-blogs and internet browsing. IRS fraudulently targeting conservatives. Department of Homeland Security building an army of one. FEMA building concentration camps, coffins and apparent box cars with guillotines. “ObamaCare”, what more do I need to say about this one? Nobody even knew what was in the bill until it was passed. Now we find out that there is a clause stating that every American will be made to have an implanted microchip with health information. This is only the tip of the iceberg.
What about his stance on equality? Making sure that everyone is treated fairly. Well, he sure seems to be keeping his word to at least some of the people. Muslims are not only guests in the White House, but are cabinet members as well. The gays are sure happy with him promoting gay marriage, and are joyfully dancing in the streets. Pro-abortionists are happy with him, defending the murder of innocent young lives. Christians seem to be left out of the equation. In fact I would say that he is targeting Christians unfairly. What about Israel? When Benjamin Netanyahu came to visit Obama in the White House, it seems as if the President treated him as a second-rate citizen, not as a close Ally and Diplomat. We see where Obama places his trust and values.
I wonder what else the government has been up to that they are not telling us about? If what we already know is as bad as it sounds, what we don’t know must be so much worse.
Obama, man of transparency. Obama’s definition of “transparency”: only let them know what I tell them; don’t give them too much information; twist the facts in my favor; never admit to anything; I am NEVER wrong; I am who I think I am and the people love me.
I just cannot believe the people who voted this man into office, not once, but twice! I knew before he was elected the first time, that Obama spelled trouble. Now we shall all pay the price.
Transparency, what does that word even mean anymore?
God Bless us all!

As bad as it was that the Internal Revenue Service targeted conservative and Tea Party groups filing for tax-exempt status, it appears now that the IRS wasn’t the only federal agency doing so.
According to June 4 Fox News report, the Environmental Protection Agency – itself used by successive administrations to harass and punish Americans – was also targeting conservative groups:
The allegations concern the [EPA], which is being accused of trying to charge conservative groups fees while largely exempting liberal groups. The fees applied to Freedom of Information Act requests – allegedly, the EPA waived them for liberal groups far more often than it did for conservative ones.
‘This cannot be tolerated’
WASHINGTON (AP) — The Senate Republican leader, who last year accused the Obama administration of Nixon-style dirty tricks, says the Internal Revenue Service’s targeting of conservative groups is part of a broader government assault on free speech.
Seizing on the spate of controversies besetting the White House, Sen. Mitch McConnell of Kentucky says the American people are recognizing a pattern that encompasses government agencies, the administration and its allies in Congress, left-wing groups and public-employee unions and their coordinated attack on First Amendment rights.
WASHINGTON (AP) — Already reeling from a pair of scandals, the Internal Revenue Service is drawing new criticism over plans to hand out millions of dollars in employee bonuses.
The Obama administration has ordered agencies to cancel discretionary bonuses because of automatic spending cuts, but the IRS says it’s merely following legal obligations under a union contract.
The agency is about to pay $70 million in employee bonuses, said Sen. Chuck Grassley of Iowa, a senior Republican on the Senate Finance Committee, which has jurisdiction over the IRS.
