House OKs 40th Effort to Repeal Health Law

The U.S. House of Representatives approved legislation by a vote of 232-185 today to prevent the Internal Revenue Service from implementing any part of President Barack Obama’s health care law, WATE reports. Sponsor Rep. Tom Price, R-Georgia, said, "We simply want patients and families and doctors to be in charge of health care, not Washington, D.C., and not the IRS." Today's debate marked the 40th time the GOP-controlled House has voted to repeal all or part of the health care reform. Most of the measures have languished in the Democrat-controlled Senate.
