Delaying Income Verification Under Obamacare Increases Fraud, Says Congresswoman
Diane Black talks to PJM: “If you can’t verify the various criteria that’s been set up by the law, how can you enact the law?"

After a House Oversight and Government Reform Committee hearing with HHS officials on the health law, Black said, “I’m not confident at this point in time that I can say to my constituency, ‘oh, don’t worry. The information that’s being collected is going to be secure.’”
Black also said it is “almost laughable” that the White House has vowed to veto the House-passed legislation that would delay the employer mandate in Obamacare that requires businesses with more than 50 full-time employees to buy health insurance for every worker.
The Obama administration recently announced the rule would be delayed until 2015.
“It’s really almost laughable, which I’m doing obviously, that the administration breaks the law, says what they want to do and we try to make it law and then he [Obama] says we don’t want you to make it law even though he’s broken the law,” she said.
“I can’t even think that way. That is so convoluted, I can’t even think that way.”
