April 13, 2011 Press Release
WASHINGTON – U.S. Rep. Tom Marino, PA-10, voted Wednesday to defund a portion of ObamaCare that authorized a Cabinet Secretary to spend more than $17 billion in taxpayer funds without any oversight. The House passed the bill, H.R. 1217, by a 236-183 vote. The spending allowance, referred to as the Health Care Slush Fund, was part of the massive health care legislation that passed last year. The slush fund provision of ObamaCare allowed the Secretary of Health & Human Services to spend more than $17 billion of taxpayer funds over the next decade. “Besides another example of the hidden costs of ObamaCare, this was disturbing in another way,” Marino said. “Giving a Cabinet secretary that much authority over our health care system and the money to carry it out is totally unacceptable.” Marino said the slush fund was another “hidden provision” in the 2,000-plus-page ObamaCare bill that was never fully explained to the American people. “Every day we learn of something else that is contained in the health care law that is unacceptable, not only to those of us who are trying to cut federal spending, but to those who see this as a blatant disregard for the American people,” Marino said. “I am sure that many of these discoveries are real eye-openers to Senators who will have an up and down vote on whether to repeal ObamaCare.” Part of the federal budget agreement for the fiscal year 2011 that was reached by House Republicans, Senate Democrats and President Obama last weekend calls for a Senate vote on the repeal of the health care bill. The House already voted to repeal the law.
