Congressman Joe Wilson (SC-02) issued the following the statement after the House passed H.R. 2775, the No Subsidies Without Verification Act, a bill that challenges the Administration's recent announcement to no longer verify each applicant when requesting assistance for exchange subsides.
Congressman Wilson stated, "Obamacare is flawed, unworkable, and unaffordable. The President knows this fact, which is why he continues to skirt around the law when attempting to implement it. Today, a bipartisan group in the House acted to protect American taxpayers by requiring individuals to seek approval before receiving support for government healthcare. It is shameful that the Administration has chosen to rely on the honor system with the people's money when Americans overwhelmingly have lost faith in the President's ability to implement his law accurately. The passage of today's bill is a step in the right direction to achieve House Republicans' plan of repealing Obamacare in its entirety. It is my hope that the Senate acts immediately so that hardworking American taxpayers will not be forced to suffer massive fraud and abuse at the Administration's expense."
