By JAVIER MANJARRESDefunding and defeating Obamacare is the U.S. House of Representatives’ number one focus, as the body voted on and passed a bill that would prevent the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) from having an enforcement or implementation role in Obamacare.
Under Obamacare, the IRS is the government agency that has been given the responsibility of enforcing the healthcare law.
Big win for Americans, bigger slap in the face to Obama.
“The IRS has demonstrated a willingness to use the machinery of government for political purposes and they should not be involved in the healthcare decisions of American families. Patients, families and doctors should be making personal healthcare decisions, not Washington bureaucrats from the IRS.” –Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN)
“With recent revelations that the IRS targeted groups based on political philosophy and flagrantly wasted millions of taxpayer dollars on conferences and videos, the last thing Americans need is this agency in charge of putting Obamacare in place,” said Crenshaw. “That’s why I recommended that the IRS be stopped from doing so and included that step in next year’s Financial Services Bill, which has passed the House Appropriations Committee. On Friday, I continued my fight against Obamacare and for accountability by voting on the floor of the U.S. House to keep the IRS from putting this wrong-headed bill in place.”-Rep. Ander Crenshaw (R-FL)
