The controversy -- is growing at this could could could make the IRS -- held down the road by comparison.
One involving their health and human services secretary -- -- just bring you up today.
Did she break the law by forcing donations at a private companies to help essentially promote the health care law.
All -- -- Republican senator Tom Coburn wants to know.
And he wants to look into this and calls for right now inspector general to conduct an independent probe senator good to have you answers on any -- about.
I have no doubt in my mind they have broken US code.
Augmenting there -- appropriations.
Had several -- large insurance executives tell me that they were asked to contribute to this.
So we're just beginning on this but it if if it's not illegal it should be.
And it for sure is unethical.
And it is definitely a conflict of interest to extort money from the very people that you regularly.
You know what I was -- -- senator.
What about the companies that chose not to you know -- you know today.
That's -- sort of pigeonholed or day sort of today at a big scarlet letter on them what okay well this is this is this is it didn't.
This in large group of people from form pharmaceutical makers.
Two insurance companies to national chain pharmacies to packaging companies.
It always is they have hit them all up a hand in it did 31 US -- thirteen 01 day.
Says you can't do that.
And so that the I guess disconcerting thing -- Is here we are now outside the law.
In -- or at least appearance of being outside the law.
In another area and end of this administration were they just don't really care what the rule of law this is we wanna do this so -- don't care what the law says so we're gonna do it.
Sometimes when I get a.
Those senator -- -- in reality LD it be his secretary has come out and said well.
Thanks to Republicans blocking our funding and following up financing a lot of the didn't.
The progress of the health care law I think he hurt his or her comments where we we -- -- had to do this you say what -- -- It you know that's the heart of rationalizing why I broke the law why ate my homework.
You know it is the fact is of the law's the law.
And that just shows you the attitude of this administration if it doesn't matter what the law is they're gonna do what they wanna do.
And and that's what's undermining confidence both in congress and in Washington.
-- and with this administration.
You can't do that.
And so you know it's kinda like your previous -- what are the facts tell us the truth don't give a city BS.
And Google and let's look at this -- and from what it appears right now from the people I've heard from.
You in fact were given a pretty hard -- to contribute.
To the rolling them enough the private sector program to roll out Obama care.
And it it is certainly is unethical it definitely is a conflict of interest in I'm I'm not sure.
That it doesn't violate.
Supplementing their own appropriations which is against the law.
So bottom -- -- this crisis you have the holy city IRS and whether we should be having thousands of more agency's handling.
You know dozens of different financing needs in health care at the dinner at least senator would appear like the rollout of this health care law has been.
Slowed stymied stop one.
Well I didn't look it's it's not whether it's -- stymied this -- on this planet and go to work I believe they're deep ball position all along was that this ain't gonna work and the deep ball position is single Payer government run health care that's what they want and that that was -- and they want to make that decision and and so.
The point is as we don't have any good market forces allocating scarce resources and health care and we're never gonna control cost that we do.
And we can create great safety net for those that -- -- helpful well let market forces.
Cut cut the cost of health care the problem health -- -- cost too much it's not that we can't get good quality health care.
Senator thank you very much fits in your -- welcome Neil good to talk to -- --
