IRS Chief John Koskinen: “Whenever We Can, We Follow the Law” (Video)
IRS Chief John Koskines told the House Ways and Means Committee today,
“Whenever we can, we follow the law.”
The Obama IRS is currently under investigation for targeting conservative groups.
Well, that’s good to know.
Lawmaker Kevin Brady blasted Koskinen after the comets.
The Hill reported:
During another grueling hearing on the ObamaCare rollout, the head of the IRS tried to offer lawmakers an assurance about the soon-to-open enrollment period.
“Whenever we can, we follow the law,” IRS Commissioner John Koskinen told the House Ways and Means subcommittee on health on Wednesday.
Rep. Kevin Brady (R-Texas), who leads the subcommittee, immediately expressed his concern with the remarks.
“I encourage you to follow the law in all instances,” Brady said.
Koskinen, who was confirmed as head of IRS last December, has repeatedly faced lawmakers’ ire over the agency’s targeting of conservative groups.
Lawmakers spent a majority of Wednesday’s hearing grilling Koskinen and Andy Slavitt, HealthCare.gov’s fix-it man, on how they would verify that consumers were providing correct income information as they signed up for insurance subsidies.
