  • DeMint on Fox News: "Obamacare Puts the IRS on Steroids"

    Heritage Foundation President Jim DeMint appeared on Fox News’ “On the Record with Greta Van Susteren” tonight to warn about the new powers granted to the IRS as a result of Obamacare.

    “Obamacare puts the IRS on steroids,” DeMint said. “It opens the door for the IRS to come into all of our lives.”

    DeMint noted that more than 2,000 new IRS employees are charged with implementing President Obama’s health care law. They will be closely examining the incomes of Americans as well as business operations.

    The interview runs about 4 minutes.
