House passes bill targeting health care law
San Francisco Chronicle

The House overwhelmingly passed a bill to impose new security requirements on President Barack Obama’s health care law as Republicans maintained an election-year focus on the contentious program and its troubled rollout.

The vote Friday was 291-122 for the measure that Republicans said would address potential data breaches, though they offered no examples in which personal data had been compromised through the government website. There were 67 Democrats who joined with Republicans to back the measure.
