Congress gets at least one repeal of ObamaScare right!

Recently the U.S. House of Representatives passed legislation repealing the Independent Payment Advisory Board (IPAB) created by the President's healthcare law. The IPAB would have been a powerful new board of 15 unelected and unaccountable bureaucrats whose job will be to save money by setting reimbursement rates for specific procedures – giving them the power to deny care to seniors. The law required no public comment or transparency prior to a decision and the board is authorized to make unilateral decisions that should be made by patients and their doctors.

Will this repeal pass the Senate? Will Obama sign it if it does get through the Senate?

Keep your eyes and ears open.
