HEALTH REFORM REPEAL VOTE POSTPONED AFTER ARIZONA SHOOTING
Saturday’s attack on U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (R-Ariz.) led House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) to put off all House action this week, including the planned vote to repeal the 2010 federal health reform law. While the repeal is sure to pass with the big Republican majority in the House, it likely won’t get past the Democrats in the Senate or President Obama’s promised veto. Still, it will focus attention on the fears many physicians and patients have with the law.
