On September 27, 2013 Rep.Kenny Marchant of Texas asked for permission to address the United States House of Representatives for one minute regarding the IRS involvement in healthcare funding.
“Mr. Speaker, a report released yesterday from the Treasury Inspector General shows that the IRS failed to track $67 million spent in the implementation of ObamaCare so far. This is before the health exchanges are even opened. My constituents, like myself, are concerned that this type of waste is what happens when Washington takes over health care.”
“The IRS has consistently demonstrated its inability to function as a responsible agency. Despite the scandals and blatant mismanagement by the IRS, the agency is also at the forefront of running our health care system. The IRS has little credibility with the American taxpayers right now. The agency must significantly be reformed before we should let them anywhere near our health care system.”
“I encourage my colleagues to join me in repealing ObamaCare and getting the IRS completely away from our health care”, said Rep. Marchant (source: Congressional Record http://thomas.loc.gov).
Rep Marchant serves on the powerful House Committee on Ways and Means, Subcommittee on Select Revenue Measures and Subcommittee on Oversight.
