Modern Healthcare

The tentacles of the Internal Revenue Service controversy have reached the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. On Wednesday, Sen. Dean Heller (R-Nev.) introduced legislation, the IRS Accountability Act, to halt funding to the IRS for new agents enforcing the ACA.

He said Congress wants to “see an improvement” at the IRS, referring to greater accountability from the service regarding its activities with regard to the reform law.
