GOP lawmaker wary of voter registration questions in Obama health law forms

• The Hill

A Republican lawmaker is concerned about voter registration questions buried in a draft application to receive benefits under President Obama's healthcare law.

Rep. Charles Boustany (R-La.), who leads a House subcommittee on oversight, said the questions' placement could lead some to believe that voter registration is tied to eligibility for the law's insurance exchanges.

"While the healthcare law requires that government agencies collect vast information about Americans' personal lives, it does not give your department an interest in whether individual Americans choose to vote," Boustany wrote in a letter Monday to Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Kathleen Sebelius.
