House Votes to Repeal Healthcare Law


Location: Unknown

U.S. Rep. Steven C. LaTourette (R-OH) today voted to repeal the healthcare law. The measure passed by a vote of 244-185.

LaTourette issued the following statement:

"I've always believed there were some really good things in the healthcare law, especially provisions for pre-existing conditions and allowing children to remain on their parents' plan until age 26," LaTourette said; "However, since the very start of the drafting process I feared the bill would morph into a hugely expensive exercise where every idea ever envisioned, rejected or put on hold would find a home, including when, where and how long breast feeding breaks should be, nutritional labeling of food at chain restaurants, and taxes on everything from medical devices to indoor tanning beds."
