House ACA Repeal Vote Gets Muted Response from Healthcare Lobbyists
Health Leaders Media

The major healthcare sector lobbying groups that played a role in crafting and helping pass the landmark healthcare reform law last year offered a muted response to Wednesday’s Republican-led effort to repeal the law in the House.

The House repeal, which passed 245-189 on a largely partisan vote, is seen as a symbolic gesture from Republicans who made repealing the law a centerpiece of November 2010 elections that brought them into the majority.
