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.”

Gov. Paul LePage



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.”

    New Gestapo...the Financial Wringer......call it whatever you wish, Governor Lepage is spot on. He's the Governor of my state and the libs hate him after over 30 years under their control.
    LePage however, knows what it's like to be without having grown up with nothing on the streets of Lewiston. He earned where he is today by the sweat of his brow and while a lot of people hate him for his bluntness......I applaud him. I voted for him the first time and I'd do it again.

    THE IRS has always been the Gestapo, but Until Obama made it an issue no one ever thought of it. Perha[ps a number of th non-Constitutional things the Democrats invented can be cast away.

    He's right. They have been all along, but now they are going to be much worse. He's hired a bunch of new agents to help process all the additional BS paperwork incurred by this tax. Costing us millions of dollars that could be better spent on healthcare and necessary items.
