Sen. Roy Blunt: My Bill Requires 'Taxpayer-Paid' Tag on Obamacare Ads

Thursday, 16 Jan 2014 06:16 PM

By Greg Richter

Sen. Roy Blunt, R-Mo., says a bill he introduced this week will allow taxpayers to see when the government is using their money to fund advertising to promote Obamcare.

"If this is tax money it certainly couldn't hurt anything for taxpayers to know, and might have some restraining capacity to make the government think carefully about what they're buying, what they're buying it on and how much they're buying," Blunt said Thursday on Fox News Channel's "Your World with Neil Cavuto."

According to Blunt's website the bill would apply to any advertising by a government agency, not just Obamacare, though his site says he was inspired by plans to spend millions of dollars to promote Obamacare.

The bill is co-sponsored by Sen. Tom Coburn, R-Okla., and Sen. Marco Rubio R-Fla.
