Press Release

Today, Congressman Kerry Bentivolio announced that he cosponsored the Keep the IRS Off Your Health Care Act and the Prevent IRS Overreach Act.

“Both pieces of legislation will ensure that the confidential information belonging to the American people isn’t abused by partisan bureaucrats, “ said Rep. Bentivolio. “It’s foolish to give the IRS more responsibility while they are deservedly under fire for abusing the power that they already have.”

The Prevent IRS Overreach Act would prohibit the IRS from hiring or designating any personnel to further implement Obamacare. The Keep IRS Off Your Health Care Act would prohibit the IRS from implementing or enforcing any provisions of thehealth care law.

Both pieces of legislation have been referred to the House Committee on Ways and Means.
