GOP Rep: 'IRS Needs Less Power'

Rep. Andy Harris, R-Md., said given the IRS’ recent scandal, the agency should not be in charge of enforcing ObamaCare regulations.

Harris, in the weekly Saturday Republican media address, questioned the federal tax agency’s responsibility for levying fines against individuals who fail to meet new health insurance mandates, ABC News Radio reported.

Harris touted support of the House, which voted to repeal the Affordable Healthcare Act this week, citing a report from the House Energy and Commerce Committee that found premiums for people in 45 states would double on average under ObamaCare.

“This week marked the third time in three years that the people’s House has listened to the people and voted for full repeal of the healthcare law,” Harris said. “Now it’s time for the Senate to listen to the people as well.”
