House acts to cut money for key part of health law
San Francisco Chronicle

The House Republican drive to dismantle the new health care law piece by piece advanced Tuesday with a vote to disrupt the flow of federal dollars for health insurance exchanges, an integral part of the law’s goal of expanding insurance coverage.

The bill is mainly a vehicle for Republicans to restate their case against the health care law enacted last year, since the Democratic-led Senate is likely to ignore it and the White House issued a veto threat in the event it passed.
