WASHINGTON – House Republican Conference Chair Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA) released the following statement today after the House passed H.R. 2775, the No Subsidies Without Verification Act.
“Today the House voted to bring greater accountability to the federal government and put an end to the fraudulent payments under the President’s health care law. Our bipartisan legislation addresses one of the most unworkable parts of the law: an existing verification system that is tremendously vulnerable to fraud. With enrollment in ObamaCare exchanges set to begin in less than a month – and with subsidies being provided to anyone who claims they’re eligible – this must be solved. And the legislation the House passed today does just that. It protects hardworking Americans from a system that is both irresponsible and fraudulent. It saves billions of taxpayer dollars in improper payments and holds the Administration accountable to the American people. We urge the Senate to pass the No Subsidies Without Verification Act, and implore the President to sign it into law immediately.”
