In another effort to undo part of the 2010 health care reform law, the House of Representatives passed a bill sponsored by Rep. Diane Black that would bar federal subsidies for people participating in newly created health insurance exchanges until the Obama administration sets up a system to verify if they are eligible. According to the Tennessean, the vote marked the 41st time the GOP-controlled House has tried since 2011 to repeal or delay the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare. The Democratically controlled Senate is not expected to take up Black’s bill, and the president has threatened to veto it if it would pass.
