US House To Vote On Congressman Price’s IRS Bill

We got this yesterday from Congressman Tom Price’s (R-GA-06) office:

It was announced today that the U.S. House of Representatives will consider legislation by Rep. Tom Price, M.D. (GA-06), that prevents the Internal Revenue Service from enforcing or implementing any component of President Obama’s health care law. The House is scheduled to vote on H.R. 2009Keep the IRS Off Your Health Care Act, prior to the 2013 August recess.

Rep. Tom Price, M.D., responded to the announcement, saying:

“As we’ve seen in recent announcements from the White House, the Obama Administration is clearly unable to manage the implementation of its own health care law. We’ve also learned that the IRS is clearly unable to prudently and impartially enforce current law. The Keep the IRS Off Your Health Care Act is essential in preventing further targeting, abuse and harassment, as well as in ensuring Americans have access to quality health care.

“It is thanks to the American people who have voiced their support for our plan and the more than 100 members of Congress who have cosponsored H.R. 2009 that we have this opportunity to take action. I urge more of our fellow citizens to get involved, so together, we can continue to keep the pressure on Washington to keep health care decisions in the hands of patients, families and doctors, instead of the government.”

Rep. Tom Price, M.D., is the vice chairman of the House Committee on the Budget. He is also a member of the House Committee on Ways and Means, as well as the House Committee on Education and the Workforce. An orthopaedic surgeon, Dr. Price spent more than 20 years caring for patients in the metro Atlanta area.

    I can’t wait for the third installment detailing the results of the House vote on such momentous legislation, and then a fourth when it’s dispatched to a Senate dustbin.

    The citizens are going over a fiscal cliff of obamacare and the GOP unleashes friendly fire.

    I think the GOP would be better off at this point doing nothing to prolong the implementation of Obamacare so the American people can finally see first-hand just how bad it is. Let’s say this actually passed, the Democrats would always be ragging on the GOP about how the Republicans stopped humanity dead in its tracks. Lots of dems are getting a bit uneasy as 2014 approaches and all the pieces come together for full-swing Obamacare, apparently not all of them are ready to end their political careers.

    Advice to Paul Broun:

    ‘Never interrupt your enemy’ and all that.
