Republican House passes budget to erase deficits, repeal reform law
Modern Healthcare

Normally quarrelsome House Republicans came together and passed a boldly conservative budget that relies on nearly $5 trillion in cuts to eliminate deficits over the next decade, calls for repealing the healthcare law and envisions transformations of the tax code and social programs.

Final passage, 228-199, came Wednesday night, shortly after Republicans bumped up recommended defense spending to levels proposed by President Barack Obama.
