Rep. Diane Black gives the Weekly Republican Party Remarks
Hi, Im Diane Black, R.N., and I represent Tennessees Sixth Congressional District in the U.S. House of Representatives. What an honor it is to be speaking with you.
Protecting taxpayer dollars is one of Washingtons most important responsibilities. Your money should be spent wisely or not at all. And everything we do to stop waste and fix broken government removes obstacles to creating jobs and building a stronger economy.
This week, the House took on a hot spot for fraud and abuse in the presidents health care law by passing a bill I authored called the No Subsidies Without Verification Act. This legislation stops the government from issuing health care subsidies until it has a system in place to prevent fraud. Its that simple.
Now, youd be right to ask, why isnt this the case already? Well, in an attempt to prop up its struggling health care law, the Obama administration decided theyd hand out subsidies without verifying whos eligible. They just want to rely on the honor system.
You heard that right: instead of exercising common sense and accountability, the Administration is willing to just give away your tax dollars no questions asked.

In particular, the questionnaire should ask if the tax-funded "Navigator" program intends to transfer personal/ financial/medical data of the insured to the local/county/national Democrat Party, relevant Unions, banks, investment companies, drug companies, insurance companies. Trial Lawyers' associations and whether "Navigators" have sub rosa contracts with these, and other groups, to provide significant info to enrich databases for pecuniary purposes.
REFERENCE A West Virginia nonprofit has turned down a federal grant it received to help residents navigate new health insurance options under the Affordable Care Act after it received an inquiry from Attorney General Patrick Morrisey about how it would protect consumer information. Clarksburg-based West Virginia Parent Training Inc. did not respond to a letter it received from Morrisey directing it to answer 26 questions about the group's personnel and hiring practices, including employee background checks and employee monitoring programs, the Sunday Gazette-Mail (http://bit.ly/17M1QVe) reported.

PLANNED PARENTHOOD WILL HAVE ACCESS TO SS#, TAX, MEDICAL INFORMATION
Breitbart Big Government ^ | 8/23/2013 | William Bigelow / FR Posted by markomalley
EXCERPT Planned Parenthood is about to obtain access to your Social Security number, tax form, bank account, and medical records.
With the advent of ObamaCare, consumers buying health insurance through health care exchanges will be required to speak to navigators. Navigators are supposed to help consumers find the best coverage and ascertain whether they are eligible for a federal subsidy.
Any navigator will have access to the federal data hub, which holds information from the Department of Health and Human Services, the IRS, the Social Security Administration, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), the Defense Department, the Office of Personnel Management, the Veterans Health Administration, and the Peace Corps.
Planned Parenthood received $655,000 from the Obama administration to hire navigators. In Iowa, Planned Parenthood of the Heartland received $214,427; in Montana, Intermountain Planned Parenthood, Inc. got $295,604; and in New Hampshire, Planned Parenthood of Northern New England raked in $145,161.
And there is not much scrutiny over who these navigators will be; HHS will not require background checks or fingerprinting, and a previous criminal conviction, even if it was for identity theft , will not trigger a rejection. To make matters worse, the administration has cut the new employees training from 30 hours to 20 and reduced screening.
OKLAHOMA WINS FIRST OCARE BATTLE: Quoting AG Pruitt--- "Obamacare was meant to be so open-ended that it could mean anything. We are seeing thousands of pages of new rules being written, both by HHS and the IRS. The open-ended interpretation of Obamacare enables this.....if the law doesn't contain a particular provision, no problem. They just make it up as they go along."
"Such is the case that involves the OK lawsuit."
The court rejected the federal governments argument that Oklahoma lacked standing to challenge the law, allowing us to proceed with this pivotal case, Were optimistic the court will recognize what states have known for months that the IRS disregarded the law by making the large employer mandate effective in Oklahoma or in any of the 33 other states without a state health care exchange.
REFERENCE Oklahoma challenged implementation of the Affordable Care Act after the IRS finalized a rule that would allow the federal government to punish large employers, including local government, with millions of dollars in tax penalties in states without state health care exchanges, which is not allowed under the health care law.
Congress provided a choice for Oklahoma and other states in implementation of the health care law, and the IRS is attempting to take that away by rule, General Pruitt said. The administration miscalculated how many states would support this law, so now theyre using the IRS to push through provisions that Congress did not pass.
No I.D. needed ...
No proof of need, just a generous contribution to some Democrat organization.
