Republicans Are Given a Price Tag for Health Law Repeal, but Reject It
New York Times

The nonpartisan budget scorekeepers in Congress said on Thursday that the Republican plan to repeal President Obama’s health care law would add $230 billion to federal budget deficits over the next decade, intensifying the first legislative fight of the new session and highlighting the challenge Republicans face in pursuing their agenda. The new House speaker, John A. Boehner, flatly rejected the report, saying it was based largely on chicanery by Democrats.
