Skip to comments.McConnell: IRS Can't Be Trusted to Implement Obamacare
Posted on 05/15/2013 7:24:27 PM PDT by Jim Robinson
Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell tells Newsmax TV that the current scandal facing the Internal Revenue Service proves that the agency cannot be trusted to implement Obamacare.
"I dont think so," the Kentucky Republican says in an exclusive interview. "I dont think we ought to have Obamacare. We ought to pull it out root and branch, if we possibly can.
"And, certainly, the IRS part of administering Obamacare, particularly in the wake of this IRS scandal with regard to suppressing the views of Americans who were critical of the IRS, raises further suspicions about their involvement in the administration of Obamacare."
Obamacare has 47 separate provisions that involve the IRS. It is the second-largest agency, after the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, charged with implementing the Affordable Care Act.
The IRS has to implement Obamacares required purchase of health coverage, checking whether millions of Americans are in compliance.
Speaking to the current scandal embroiling the IRS, McConnell tells Newsmax that Congress would investigate the targeting of conservative groups "for as long as it takes to get the truth."

Nobody should implement Obamacare.
Pull it out and burn it!! Drive a stake through its evil fascist heart!!
Every now and then McConnell get it exactly right. This is the right time to go after Obamacare.
There, fixed it for you Mr McConnell
What can be done can be undone
The IRS is a marxist gestapo with their hands on the throat of every American taxpayer
Time for that agency to be disbanded, or we will be slaves to these faceless apparatchiks who control our lives and freedom.
Republicans now have NO excuse for driving the stake into the heart of 0care. None.
They all should be making a real stink about it until it’s over and done with, including the GOPe (on TV and radio), talk radio, and We The People as well.
This is our last chance - do or die (literally).
I do not think the establishment Republicans, including McConnell, have any intention of repealing Obamacare ...i.e., "pull it out root and branch.
Key words, or weasel words, if we possibly can. Jim, these people think they can "fix" it; make it work; make every body happy. They are afraid to duke it out.
Of course they can repeal Obamacare. At the very least, by now the House should have voted to stop paying for it.
“...with regard to suppressing the views of Americans who were critical of the IRS...”
Hey, Mitch-—where the hell were YOU when the views of Americans were critical of OBAMA”care”????
Every Conservative in Congress (and Republicans too) should be screaming this angle to the American public!! Do you want the IRS controlling your healthcare?? They will pick and choose who gets what care according to their political affiliation. If they think that’s insane, hammer the point home of them being caught attacking fellow American’s for following the Constitution. This could be the moment in time.
However, I am a skeptic that they will do anything to help save us from this disaster. BTW my husband lost his job again, so I went to put him on my insurance which is a new policy as of last month. It will now cost me close to $700 a month for the 2 of us, and my company pays 75% of my coverage. So please tell me how this is suppose to save us?
A caller on Rush today pointed out that the drone who works at an Obamacare exchange will have all this info at his/her fingertips. Voting history, taxes, loans, donations, etc..
Hmm, IRS Death Panels yippee
...gee, you think?
Guess you guys should’ve fought it harder.
America does not want ACA aka; Obamacare, and never has from the git-go. ACA is a Democrat/Marxist thing only Democrats want, and it isn’t for the benefit of the people, but for the control of the people by the Democrat/Marxists.
It’s a Communist thing.
Hey Mitch, defund it. You should have all the votes right now in the house you need to do this.
I would guess its safe to say that not even Democrats want Obamacare!
Until Roberts is removed from the bench, all attempts at repeal will be nullified in court.
Jim check this link out;
Great find. Are you going to post it?
"Turbo Tax" Tim Geithner was Treasury Secretary when these crimes began and he ought to be pulled in front of a committee and grilled, the little puke.
Never, ever trust a fellow who evades taxes by giving him authority over the very entity he chose to evade. Its unbelievable he passed Congressional vetting.
I thinkin’ it’s high time to start the ‘great tax revolt of 2013’
[[McConnell: IRS Can’t Be Trusted to Implement Obamacare]]
No crap captain obvious- Now what’re you and yer fellow republicans in congress gonna do to stop dear leader from allowing htem to to run it?
And what are you going to do McConnell? Time for talk is past. You are nothing but a spineless pussy. It is every person for himself with this “leadership”.
No I need to get to bed.....
Congressional vetting has become a complete joke.
Ok, I’ll post it for you.
I plan as giving as much help to “leadership” as Lugar Cornyn and GOPee gave to Mr. Mourdock. NOTHING
There is another repeal vote on Obama Care tommorrow in the House.
Considering this IRS scandal and the IRS $440 million appropriation to enforce Obama care, maybe the repeal will pass the House and Senate.
That would be real nice.
Finally; a representative who come close to representing me.
How about: "Until it never happens again"?
That's not what Traitor Roberts wrote.
Bammy has years of potential SCOTUS appointments to go.
Quite true - although for a political strategy, connecting it to the current IRS scandal can serve to breathe new life into two very unpopular issues.
Other than Lugar, that’s just not true - not even close.
Mourdock shot himself in the foot. His loss is his own fault.
This should become a talking point.
Did this forum get targeted?
a better argument is that we'll have civil war is this continues..
can't imagine too many men, even the men today, allowing their child or wife to die because of treatment denied...
I wonder how many Americans right now even know about this story? And when they find out will they call their state and federal politicans, write letters, emails?
The Democratic and the Republican parties cannot end their love affair with the IRS.
Sadly, the American populous loves being screwed by this kind of system.
If the American people continues to tolerate this kind of abuse it deserves it and whatever it drags along.
Since the new Obama right of free birth control might be lost, we are all stuck in this foolish situation.
