They told the IRS to stop carrying out the law that was declared unconstitutional. And they also told the dept of Health and Human Services they couldn’t pay the salaries of anyone tasked with implementing the law. Bwwahahaha
From USAToday here:
The GOP-led House voted today to block funding to implement the nation’s health care law.
Specifically, the House voted to prohibit any funds be used by the Internal Revenue Service to carry out the law’s mandate that Americans buy health insurance. The individual mandate, one of the law’s key tenets, has been struck down by federal courts.
The House also adopted an amendment by Rep. Denny Rehberg, R-Mont., to bar the Labor and Health and Human Services Departments from spending any money for the rest of fiscal year 2011 on the health care law. Still another provision adopted today would ban the government from paying the salaries of any federal employee involved in implementing the health care law.
Of course the Democrats are threatening to shut down the government which is a huge win for all Americans, except for White House Interns, who, as history dictates, must give oral sex to the President.
