Obamacare bully boys about to get benched?
Need to bench Obamacare.
Check it out:
Just days after the IRS admitted making life miserable for conservative organizations applying for tax-exempt status, Rep. Tom Price, R-Ga., warned that the agency cannot be trusted to enforce Obamacare and is pushing legislation to strip the IRS of any new powers connected to the law.
On Thursday, ABC News reported the IRS official in charge of the tax-exempt organizations when the agency targeted tea-party groups is now in charge of the IRS office responsible for enforcing Obamacare. Also, the Daily Caller reported the agency is the subject of a class action lawsuit alleging that “15 of its agents improperly seized 10 million Americans’ medical records.”
However, the “Keep the IRS Off Your Health Care Act of 2013″ would bar the IRS from “implementing or enforcing” any components of the health care laws.
“We always opposed utilizing the IRS in this fashion. They have no expertise in that area, and we just think that it’s inappropriate to have the IRS involved in people’s health care,” said Price, a physician and member of the tax-writing House Ways and Means Committee that will hold hearings on IRS abuses Friday.
