Millions Diverted to IRS to Implement 'Obamacare'

Ad Feedback

The Obama administration is giving approximately a $500 million to the Internal Revenue Service to help implement its controversial health care law.

The Hill reported Monday that the funds are only part of the amount the IRS will get to help enforce the law. The money is being given to the agency outside of the normal process for funding.

The IRS will be responsible for enforcing several key parts of the law, including the individual mandate that requires Americans to buy health insurance.

Meanwhile, Republican lawmakers are scrambling to cut off that funding until the Supreme Court issues a ruling on the law.

"While President Obama and his Senate allies continue to spend more tax dollars implementing an unpopular and unworkable law that may very well be struck down as unconstitutional in a matter of months, I'll continue to stand with the American people who want to repeal this law," vowed Rep. Denny Rehberg, R-Mont., chairman of the House Appropriations Subcommittee for Healthcare.

He also promised to replace the law "with something that will actually address the cost of healthcare."
