Employers required to attest to IRS under penalty of perjury

Fox news reports:

Further, Treasury officials said Monday that businesses will be told to “certify” that they are not shedding full-time workers simply to avoid the mandate. Officials said employers will be told to sign a “self-attestation” on their tax forms affirming this, under penalty of perjury.

The whole point is this is to prevent employers from telling employees that they are being laid off due to Obamacare. Not to prevent the layoffs, mind you. Just to prevent employers from telling the truth about why employees are being laid off.

It's an outrageous violation of the First Amendment, and it has the practical effect of denying Obama's illegal "waivers" to anyone who criticizes the law -- and losing those waivers carries a substantial financial penalty.

Hat tip to Patterico for the story.
