Senator denounces federal budget bill as ‘trojan horse’ to fund ObamaCare

Font Size:

A Republican senator on Thursday denounced the $18 billion in provisions added to a catchall spending bill to keep the government running through next year, saying they’re a “Trojan horse to fund the new federal health care law.”

The Senate will decide the fate of the $1.2 trillion budget bill that narrowly passed the House Wednesday night and would keep the government running through September of next year. But Senate Democrats are planning to add more money, including thousands of pet projects sought by lawmakers.

Sen. Tom Coburn, R-Okla., noted that the Senate version would  provide $19 million to the IRS for dictating health insurance under the new law; $6.25 billion to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention for new health reform programs, and $210 million to the Health Resources and Services Administration for public health workforce programs.
