Did IRS illegally strengthen Obamacare?

(Washington Free Beacon) Two House committees are investigating whether the IRS illegally implemented an important provision of Obamacare.

House Ways and Means Committee chairman Dave Camp (R., Mich.) and Oversight Committee chairman Darrell Issa (R., Calif.) sent a letter on Tuesday to the acting secretary of the Treasury Department and the acting commissioner of the IRS requesting documents and interviews with specific officials.

The two committees are investigating how the IRS decided to implement a specific tax credit created in the Obamacare legislation. The bill allows the federal government to provide a tax credit to certain individuals who purchase health insurance in healthcare exchanges created by the states.
