GOP promises House vote to repeal Obamacare, defund Planned Parenthood
CBS News

Another year, another effort to repeal Obamacare.

House Republicans are starting off 2016 with a renewed legislative push to roll back the president’s landmark health care legislation, with proposals to defund Planned Parenthood tacked onto the bill.

“As Congress returns next week, in one of our first acts of the new year, the House will vote on a bill that would eliminate key parts of Obamacare and stop taxpayer funding for abortion providers such as Planned Parenthood,” Rep. Vicky Hartzler, R-Missouri, said in a video released Saturday.  ”If this bill becomes law, patients will be able to choose a health insurance plan that works for them — without Washington getting in the way.”
