Despite Questionable Constitutionality, Obama Administration Allocating $500 Million for IRS Enforcement of ObamaCare
By Katie Pavlich, TownHall News Editor
Despite the Supreme Court taking up and questioning the
constitutionality of ObamaCare just a few weeks ago (set to rule in
June), with emphasis on the individual mandate, the Obama Administration
has allocated $500 million for IRS agents to enforce the legislation.
The Obama administration is quietly diverting roughly $500 million to
the IRS to help implement the president’s healthcare law.
The money is only part of the IRS’s total implementation spending, and
it is being provided outside the normal appropriations process. The tax
agency is responsible for several key provisions of the new law,
including the unpopular individual mandate.
It has moved aggressively to get important policies in place. And,
according to a review of budget documents and figures provided by
congressional staff, the administration is also burning through
implementation funding provided in the healthcare law.
Nothing says freedom like the IRS having more power and large role in your healthcare....
