The House in a series of votes approved legislation that would provide an $82 billion credit to address Medicare’s physician payment problem. Cleared by the Senate last week, the legislation would raise the debt limit to more than $14 trillion, while reestablishing “pay as you go” rules. Passage by the House clears the package for President Barack Obama to sign it into law.
