Modern Healthcare

On the second anniversary of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, House Democrats vowed to support and fight for the law’s survival, while House Speaker John Boehner released a new video in which he said the only way to fix the law is to repeal it.

Boehner noted that the House has voted to repeal, defund or break apart pieces of the law 25 times, and will vote this week to overturn the section of the ACA establishing the Independent Payment Advisory Board, the 15-member governing panel the law created to suggest ways to slow Medicare cost growth.
