Steve Daines Co-Sponsors Act Calling for End of IRS Enforcement of the Affordable Care Act


Today, May 27, Montana Representative Steve Daines announced that he would be co-sponsoring H.R.1990, also known as “The Keep the IRS off Your Health Care Act of 2013.”

In explaining his support for H.R.1990, Daines referred to a recent IRS scandal as a source of mistrust.

“Like most Montanans, I was appalled to learn that the IRS had deliberately targeted groups for investigation based on their beliefs,” Daines said. “Given these events, it would be senseless to empower this agency to oversee major aspects of the American health care system. Yet that’s what Obamacare calls for. That’s why I’ve signed on to the Keep the IRS Off Your Health Care Act, which states that the IRS may not be involved in any aspect of President Obama’s health care law.”

Under the Affordable Care Act, the IRS is responsible for enforcing the “Individual Mandate,” a type of tax (at least as far as the Supreme Court is concerned) for those who choose not to buy insurance but can afford to do so.

According to Daines, more than 90 percent of Montanans at an over-the-phone town hall meeting on Tuesday supported the resolution.
