Force the Senate to End the UNLIMITED Obamacare Slush Fund

I urge the Senate to vote immediately on H.R. 1213, a bill to eliminate the massive, open-ended Obamacare slush fund for state-based exchange grants. HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius is already using this UNLIMITED slush fund to seduce states into collaborating in the implementation of Obamacare.

Dr. Donald Berwick, the chief administrator of Medicare and Medicaid, has hinted at plans to tap this completely uncapped source of funding to bail out state governments, who are experiencing exploding Medicaid spending.

The Congressional Research Service has confirmed that this fund is open-ended and requires no further action by Congress to be tapped by the Obama Administration.

The Congressional Budget Office estimates H.R.1213 would save taxpayers about $14 billion over the next 10 years; but this is only a guess on their part -- the savings could be much, much more -- because the slush fund is not subject to any controls or meaningful limits.

Under our Constitution, only Congress has the power of the purse. Obamacare's creation of an open-ended slush fund ("indefinite appropriation") for state-based exchange grants was a dangerous and irresponsible delegation of money and power to the President. It must be repealed as quickly as possible.

Hold a vote on H.R.1213 now!
