Volunteer Fire Fighters and ACA

I really believe in Universal Healthcare and I really want President Obama to succeed in his efforts to achieve that goal…but apparently the IRS has taken the position that volunteer firefighters (even though they are volunteers) must be considered “employees” for purposes for purposes of the ACA and therefore even provided coverage or their fire departments will be fined. Congresswoman Alyson Schwartz who is running for Governor in Pennsylvania has asked the IRS to reconsider. She points out that over 90% of Pennsylvania’s fire departments utilize at least some volunteers. I hope that she succeeds.
