Washington, D.C. – The American public recently learned that the IRS specifically targeted conservative groups for rigorous scrutiny and that the secretary of Health and Human Services solicited private funds to implement the president’s health care law. These two scandals are the subject of a new video that U.S. Senator Mike, R-Wyo., recorded this week. The video addresses questions and comments Wyoming constituents have concerning these issues and were selected from comments Enzi received on Facebook and Twitter, in phone calls to his D.C. and Wyoming offices, and in email and written letters.
IRS targeting conservative groups
“Right now I don’t have a lot of confidence in the attorney general being in charge of Justice. I’ve seen too many things that fall through the cracks there. But we’ll keep the pressure on to see that justice is done.
“Government agencies should be blind to ideology and should not be used as political weapons, no matter how many times they have in the past. This can’t happen. Not in America.
“We know that the administrator that oversaw the IRS is now in charge of overseeing the president’s healthcare law. That should worry us, too. We need to know who knew what when, and those in charge should be held accountable.”
HHS Secretary soliciting private funds to implement president’s health care law
“She’s twisting the arms of those companies, telling them they have to help pay to do advertising that says Obamacare is a really good thing.”
Senator Enzi records “Collecting Common Sense from Wyoming for Washington” videos every other week when the Senate is in session. He encourages Wyoming residents to continue sharing their thoughts, ideas, and questions and he will address as many of the topics as possible. For individual responses, constituents should email him through his web page – www.enzi.senate.gov.
