Warner Todd Huston @ Breitbart:

During the May 22 broadcast of National Public Radio’s “Talk of the Nation,” host Neil Conan repeatedly contradicted a guest by claiming that the IRS has nothing at all to do with Obamacare.

NPR’s Conan is, of course, completely incorrect. The IRS is up to its Tea Party harassing neck in Obamacare.

The guest Conan contradicted was Kellyanne Conway, a Republican strategist and pollster. Conway was on to discuss the various scandals in which Obama is mired and close to the end of her segment she questioned how the American people can trust the IRS to implement Obamacare.

Conan initially pressed her on the claim saying that she must have “misspoken.”

“And I think you may have misspoken earlier, Kellyanne Conway, about the IRS and its role in health care,” the host claimed. “It is responsible for collecting the fine if somebody does not get healthcare, it’s not responsible whether somebody gets healthcare or not.”

Conway went on properly to note that the IRS does, indeed, have a large hand on the tiller of Obamacare.

The Republican pollster noted that the American people are quite in the dark about how far reaching this Obamacare law is. They are in the dark about how it is supposed to work. “When [the American people] think of implementing Obamacare…they aren’t thinking of the IRS,” she said.

Conway also reminded host Conan why Obamacare was upheld by the Supreme Court last year. It wasn’t upheld under the Commerce Clause but under the federal government’s taxing powers.
