Republicans Hope IRS Scandal Hurts President's Health Care Law

WASHINGTON (AP) --    Political scandals cause collateral damage and Republicans are hoping the furor over federal tax enforcers singling out conservative groups will snag some really big game -- President Barack Obama's health care law.   The Internal Revenue Service has a major role in carrying out the health care law. Financial aid to help the uninsured afford coverage will be funneled through the tax system. The IRS is also responsible for penalties on individuals and employers who fail to comply with the law.   And it turns out the former head of the IRS office that subjected tea-party groups to tougher scrutiny for tax exemptions is now running the agency's health care division.   The red-meat associations appear irresistible, but no one appears to have the facts yet that could connect the dots.Copyright 2013 Associated Press.
