Well turning to acting IRS commissioner Danny were -- -- today admitted he wouldn't change his current health care plan after erupting him.
When excesses were only sixty days away from implementation.
And it's time the Obama administration admits it's not ready and do something about what is surely a train -- joining us now.
Congresswoman Diane black she serves on the house Ways and Means Committee.
Above or which were -- today appeared she's also -- the Budget Committee.
-- and by the way she has been -- registered -- for more than forty years great to have you with us.
Always great to be with you Lou thank you for having me on this evening well it's our pleasure and and you heard it.
Her work rules say he just certain keep his health care plan that obamacare stuff -- let that be for -- you know for all of us peasants out here.
Yes that's I just tell the story that this is a train wreck that even the acting commissioner Eric IRS says.
An opera mini -- I don't want anything to do it it.
Of his agents are supposed to be.
-- -- obamacare.
The agency doesn't even want to be covered by Obama care.
What is it going to dawn on everyone that this is a mess and that something had better be done and done court.
And that's the reason why we have been hearing today is to shed light on -- number of things that we've been looking out for several months.
We have been looking at the whole issue of verification.
And if this is really odd that the secretary civilians came before our committee back in April and said.
And fifteen different times during that hearing that we're ready to go there will be no delays during July the fourth week while we were all -- -- the celebration of the birthday of our country they came out with two provisions to say we're going to delay.
One was the employer mandate and the other is the verification of income.
For subsidies which is just defrauding taxpayers and it just about the funeral -- you don't like the honor system when it comes -- -- away governor government money.
That's right and look if -- -- to that idea why don't we just I asked I had questioning as mr.
wonderful today do you think we ought to just not have the W two.
Forms be required -- winning come tax returns any longer if we just want to ask everybody to self attests to the amount of money that they make.
We know that this is just.
Again a train mat rat and it is defrauding the American taxpayer gulf hardworking taxpayer that's doing the things the right way.
It would be defrauding them if we don't check and verify their income after all as a part of their own bill.
Yeah it is in is really.
Absurd stuff frankly.
Because we know for example and -- larger program at this point.
Medicare that broad is estimated.
Billion dollars a year just.
He brought along.
And -- we have other programs that are just like Medicare.
Where we can point to by the inspector general's report and we have one from the treasury that talked about earned income tax credit.
Eleven billion dollars a year is given out and potentially fraudulent claims for just that program another three billion for education tax credits.
And -- there's been an estimated 2.5 billion dollars of fraudulent.
Taxpayer credits tax credits.
That would be given out if there's not a verification system as provided for in their own wall.
Once again these are not provisions that are coming from the Republicans.
It is the provisions that they put in there in the two major -- The employer verification that someone has access to employer sponsored insurance right.
And the second -- the income verification before someone qualified to get those tax credit.
On both of those together are just.
For huge amounts of fraud.
It an underlying mission correctly you guys are gonna vote again.
Two through defund.
-- -- roll back the Affordable Care Act.
Yes we continue to do everything that we can to stop this train wreck from occurring.
I believe that the more we can do Chris I'd love to just totally repeal this bill and start all over again.
But something that is patient centered -- market base we know that that really is the way this should be done but.
Besides that the fact that were not able to fully repeal it we need to do everything that we can.
-- to -- this train wreck so that we don't have this huge amount of money taken from hardworking taxpayers.
To find something that is not going to work at the end of the -- congress -- we thank you for being with us appreciate it -- -- congresswoman Diane black candidate you think.
