Obama administration accused of theft of $7 billion from taxpayers to try to bail out Obamacare

Washington Examiner:
House lawmakers lashed out at the Obama administration Thursday, arguing that officials knowingly circumvented Congress to get $7 billion for Obamacare.

The House Ways & Means Committee held a hearing on the funding surrounding Obamacare's cost-sharing reduction payments, which pay down copays and deductibles. The committee, and the Energy & Commerce Committee, issued a report Thursday that said the administration didn't get a congressional appropriation for the payments, as required by law.

"Congress has never provided an appropriation for it. The administration knew this and didn't care," said Rep. Kevin Brady, R-Texas, the committee chairman. "This is stealing from the American people."

Brady also argued that the administration stonewalled the joint committee investigation that began in February 2015.
