Shhh: White House “Quietly” Diverting $500 Million to IRS to Implement ObamaCare

So how do they plan to repay this if and when ObamaCare is ruled unconstitutional? Is he going to dip into the Obama stash to repay it? More likely, we the taxpaying suckers will be on the hook.

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.

Republican lawmakers have tried to cut off funding to implement the healthcare law, at least until after the Supreme Court decides whether to strike it down. That ruling is expected by June, and oral arguments last week indicated the justices might well overturn at least the individual mandate, if not the whole 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 and replace it with something that will actually address the cost of healthcare,” said Rep. Denny Rehberg (R-Mont.), who chairs the House Appropriations subcommittee for healthcare and is in a closely contested Senate race this year.

The Obama administration has plowed ahead despite the legal and political challenges.

Maybe they can just blame Bush?

    Yeah, you would think so, but not with this bunch! They do not respect the Constitution or the rule of law, and no one up there does a damn thing about it! The American people won’t forget who is responsible for allowing this crisis to go on unchecked! They are all guilty of treason!

    Maybe, but I think the IRS folks who’s salaries depend on this spending will give a quit thanks to the gangsters from ChiTown for the work. And the faceless beauracrats who play middleman in all these wealth transfers in and among government staffers.Imagine a job where you sign off on spending billions of dollars without a care in the world who coughs it up.Must be heaven.

    Gee, the last time I thought about the WPA was when I watched the Waltons with my son . . . until now. Give a job, get a vote; it makes perfect sense.
