ObamaCare is falling apart. Two-thirds of the states have refused to set up the health insurance exchanges. Only 26 Governors support Medicaid expansion. And, as Phyllis noted in a recent column, even one of ObamaCare’s leading architects, Sen. Max Baucus (D-Montana), admits it is heading for a “train wreck” later this year.
ABC News reported that the IRS official in charge of tax-exempt organizations from 2009 to 2012, when tea party conservative groups were improperly targeted for scrutiny and harassment, is now in charge of the office responsible for enforcing ObamaCare! The IRS official, Sarah Hall Ingram, received over $100,000 in bonuses during the years 2009-2012 on top of her $170,000 annual salary.
This evening, in the House of Representatives, two Democrats voted with 227 Republicans and passed another full repeal of ObamaCare. This is the 37th bill to pass the U.S. House that repeals or rescinds funding for all or part of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. Seven of these bills have been passed by the Senate and signed into law by the President. See that list here.
