Oopsie! IRS reports Obamacare will force millions to go without health insurance

Gee, it's so surprising how a 2,200-page bill that no one read could lead to all of these... complications:

President Obama's healthcare law will leave millions of families without affordable coverage unless tax officials rewrite the rules on who gets subsidies, advocates warned Thursday.

...The issue risks blowing up in Democrats' face in 2014, when the subsidies for coverage in state-based insurance exchanges become available. House Republicans have already used the glitch, which The Hill first reported in July, as ammunition to hammer the law for allegedly discriminating against marriage.

Advocates shared their concerns in person with the IRS during a hearing on the tax credits after deluging the agency with comments about its proposed regulation last month. The proposed rule would not penalize families that can't afford insurance, but advocates say that's not enough.

IRS officials listened silently for two and a half hours and asked no questions. The Treasury Department has said its hands are tied because of the way the law was written.

In related news, Obamacare architect Jonathan Gruber just threw a temper tantrum.
