House delays vote targeting Planned Parenthood, health law
Modern Healthcare

Republican leaders have decided to delay until January a House vote to unravel President Barack Obama’s healthcare overhaul and block federal money for Planned Parenthood, hoping to increase attention on their drive against two of conservatives’ favorite targets. The measure has already cleared the Senate, and House passage seems assured. Congress is ready to tackle major budget bills this week and adjourn for the year. GOP aides and lawmakers said they didn’t want those measures to overshadow their assault on Obama’s health law and Planned Parenthood.
