House votes to block IRS from Obamacare
This one seems to be a no brainer.
Check it out:
House Republicans voted in support of legislation linking taxes, the IRS and the unpopular Obamacare, just before leaving Washington for their August recess on Friday.
The House voted 232-185 for a bill that would bar the IRS from any role in carrying out the health-care law or in collecting taxes to help pay for it.
The lead sponsor of the “Keep the IRS Off Your Health Care Act” is Rep. Tom Price, R-Ga., a practicing physician for more than 20 years before his election to Congress in 2004.
The House vote marked the 40th time it has moved to repeal parts or all of the health-care law. President Obama has signed seven of those bills but none eroded the law’s basic building blocks. The White House earlier this week said he would veto the bill.
The Obama health law grants the IRS more than 40 different enforcement powers. Price says the admitted conduct of the IRS in evaluating conservative organizations for tax-exempt status disqualifies the agency from this new role.
“The genesis for [the bill] was earlier this Spring when the revelations came out about the incredible, chilling tactics of the Internal Revenue Service targeting political groups and targeting individuals for their ideology and then leaking donors to those groups and then targeting donors for audits,” Price told WND.
