Providing for Consideration of H.R. 45, Repeal of Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act

Floor Speech

Location: Washington, DC


Mr. FORBES. Mr. Speaker, I would like to thank my friend, Dr. Burgess, for his leadership on this issue and for yielding me this time.

We just heard the speaker talk about the definition of ``insanity,'' and Americans woke up the last few weeks and realized the definition of ``insanity'' is giving massive amounts of information to thousands of new Internal Revenue Service agents who can use it as leverage over our lives.

I hope that, despite the fact that this bill is increasing costs on individuals and businesses, at least we ought to agree we don't want to hire thousands of new Internal Revenue Service agents and give them all of this information that they can use as an abusive process over our lives. In addition to that, Mr. Speaker, I have introduced the Prevent IRS Overreach Act which would at least take the Internal Revenue Service out of this provision.

I hope that we'll adopt this rule and we'll support the underlying bill.
