GOP Congressman: Health Care Bill Would Increase IRS

House Republicans say the IRS will hire more than 16,000 new employees to enforce the so-called healthcare individual mandates requiring people to buy coverage.
 
Republicans also say the new healthcare bill will require 10-billion dollars to pay for new auditors, agents and employees at the IRS.
 
Herger says it's another reason to oppose the legislation.
 
HERGER: "One-sixth of our entire economy to be taken over by Washington… by the federal government, with the IRS implementing this, enforcing it I should say is just one more outrage among many many outrages."
 
Democrats say their overhaul plan will reduce health care costs over time - by making the size of the insurance pool larger.  The House is expected to take a final vote on the plan Sunday with no Republican support.
