Heller Files Amendment to Stop IRS Funding for Implementing ObamaCare Keeps pushing to stop IRS from getting more funds to enforce ObamaCare due to recent targeting scandal (Washington, D.C.) – U.S. Senator Dean Heller (R-NV) today offered an amendment to prohibit the IRS from receiving any ObamaCare funding that would otherwise be used for implementing the massive health care law. Heller offered the amendment to the 2013 Senate Farm bill just one week after introducing the legislation as a stand-alone bill (S. 962). “I am deeply troubled that the IRS has been improperly targeting conservative groups. Public distrust in this agency is already at an all-time high, so providing the IRS with more power to enforce this flawed health care policy makes no sense. For these reasons, I have offered the “IRS Accountability Act” as an amendment to the Farm bill. Simply put, right now, we can’t trust the IRS to do its job,” said Senator Dean Heller. The President’s budget requested that about $440 million be diverted to the IRS for the purpose of enforcing the President’s health care law. Considering the IRS is under increasing scrutiny for targeting conservative groups seeking tax-exempt status, Heller has led the fight to stop additional funding. Last week, he sent a letter to Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius and introduced the “IRS Accountability Act.” Follow Senator Heller on Facebook On Twitter @SenDeanHeller And on YouTube *If you are no longer interested in receiving updates, please do not respond to this email, as it is an unattended e-mail address.
