starting today.


House plans five-hour debate on healthcare repeal, WH warns veto
By Pete Kasperowicz - 07/09/12 08:15 PM ET

The House will hold five hours of debate on Tuesday and Wednesday on legislation that would completely repeal the 2010 healthcare law, which is being called up by Republicans in light of the Supreme Court's decision that the individual health insurance mandate is constitutional.

The House Rules Committee approved a rule late Monday setting out the lengthy debate on a bill that is expected to pass with Republican support, but very little if any Democratic support. The Repeal of Obamacare Act, H.R. 6079, was formally introduced by House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.) on Monday.

Later Monday evening, the White House put out a statement saying President Obama would veto the bill if it were presented for his signature, something that won't happen given Senate opposition.

"The Administration strongly opposes House passage of H.R. 6079 because it would cost millions of hard-working middle class families the security of affordable health coverage and care they deserve," the statement said. "It would increase the deficit and detract from the work the Congress needs to do to focus on the economy and create jobs.
