The Internal Revenue Service has determined that it will issue tax credits in states which have not set up state-run health insurance exchanges under Obamacare–even though the Obamacare legislation does not authorize it to do so. That’s the case David Catron makes over at the American Spectator’s website.
The Executive Branch is not supposed to spend money or extend tax credits unless authorized by act of Congress. The IRS–under the signature of then acting director Steven Miller–is evidently prepared to do the latter. This strikes me as another episode of gangster government from the Obama administration.
