Congresswoman Jenkins Supports No Subsidies Without Verification Act

WASHINGTON – Today the U.S. House of Representatives passed H.R. 2775, the No Subsidies Without Verification Act, which provides a safeguard against ObamaCare’s failure to create a workable, secure and fair system to verify the eligibility of individuals who will attempt to receive federal insurance subsidies once the healthcare exchanges are ready. Congresswoman Lynn Jenkins (KS-02) released the following statement after voting for the bill:

“I am proud to support a bipartisan bill that provides some protection for hardworking American taxpayers against another failure of the president’s healthcare law. Over the last couple weeks, I traveled across the state listening to Kansans’ concerns, and one of most common concerns I heard involved uncertainty caused by the president’s healthcare law,” said Congresswoman Jenkins. “It has been three years since ObamaCare became law, and hardworking Americans and job creators are still struggling to get the information they need to understand the law and plan for the future. As I have been saying since it became law, this healthcare law needs to be repealed and replaced immediately. It is clear ObamaCare is not ready for prime time, and I do not believe it ever will be.”

The No Subsidies Without Verification Act is a measure that will help protect against waste, fraud, and abuse of taxpayer dollars by requiring an accurate verification system be present to ensure only eligible Americans will receive health insurance subsidies from the new ObamaCare exchanges before they are handed out. Currently, the administration has no plan to verify eligibility for these taxpayer subsidies.
