Obama Administration silently diverting funds to IRS to enact Health Care Reform

The Hill has uncovered that the Obama administration has been quietly diverting funds to the IRS in order to implement their new health care reform law- to the tune of around $500 million.
The report states that the funds are being provided outside of the normal appropriations process and the $500 million is only part of the IRS's total spending to implement the reform.  Republican legislators are hoping to curtail funding until after the Supreme Court rules on the healthcare mandate's constitutionality. A ruling is expected this June.
