It's -- for its misuse of funds and targeting of conservative groups in our next guest says.
Those issues make him question the agency's ability to oversee obamacare so he's come up with a bill.
Just got them from being able to do that now Republican congressman and physician.
Tom price said -- to -- today congressman -- Great it's great to be with you thank you very much all right as you just heard Chris firewall talking about the fact that the next phase of the health -- -- -- is going to roll into -- when you say IRS a lot of people say.
Health care Internal Revenue Service how -- these two linked explain.
Well you're -- -- -- right people are concerned about a -- I remember the IRS -- Internal Revenue Service is the enforcement arm.
For the Affordable Care Act for Obama care.
And and their job is to enforce and and implement portions of the law which we believe it's just crazy in this time when the -- -- shown themselves to be.
In complete disarray and clearly not having the trust of the American people so we introduced a bill HR 2009 and says the IRS can't either enforce or implement.
Obamacare or the Affordable Care Act.
My understanding is you have a least a hundred co sponsors on the bill are any of them Democrats do you need that let me get this through the house what happens when -- hits the senate.
Well we hope that we can get some democratic support in the house we don't have any as co sponsors right now my suspicion is that if were able to get this bill to the floor that we will have.
Some Democrats who will support it on the floor of the house because there is concern in private conversations.
There is concerned as we are about the IRS being involved in in americans' health care.
Now what a ghost of the senate my suspicion is that what they will do is is listen.
Hopefully to their constituents.
And what their constituents are screaming loudly is that the last thing we want the IRS to do is to be involved and our health care so hopefully what will be able to do is move this bill forward.
And then have the president recognize that -- individuals.
Families and physicians and and -- -- and the doctors and the families and patients ought to be the ones making medical decisions not Washington DC.
If the IRS.
It would somehow had divested.
Of the ability to enforce this health care law.
Would there be any -- it to enforce it and is that the entire point that the whole -- and falls park.
Well the last thing we need and and as you understand this clearly is is the Internal Revenue Service getting into our health activities and enforcing this.
How about going with somebody oh I don't know maybe and I Health Department somewhere to deal with -- health -- in our country that would be the kind of thing that Americans could understand.
I disagree with the law because I think that it that harms quality health care and has a position.
I can tell you that my colleagues are are very very concerned about their ability -- ability to continue to care for their patients.
But what we need to do again -- get patients and families and doctors making medical decisions not Washington DC we've got a lot of legislation -- move us in that positive right direction.
We just hope that we can get it through the house and through the senate and have the president recognized that his law is going to destroy quality health care in this country and that's not the direction we -- -- All right and we want to leave you with this poll -- and Fox News and we asked what kind of changes should be made to the IRS a full 66%.
Said either abolish it and build an entirely new agency.
Or a major reorganization.
Will see what happens to your point with health care -- -- price thank you.
Thanks so much take care a great -- -- --
