Senator Cornyn also wants to keep the IRS out of your healthcare:
By all accounts, the IRS is in charge of enforcing ObamaCare. Under the law, Americans will be required to report to the IRS whether or not we are insured and, in return, the IRS will tax us accordingly. This raises an obvious question: Do we trust the IRS to implement this law — the most partisan in recent memory — with evenhanded fairness?
I do not. To that end, I introduced a bill in May that would deny the IRS the authority to implement ObamaCare. This week, I submitted this legislation as an amendment to the appropriations bill currently pending before the Senate.
