US House to Vote on Defunding Planned Parenthood
The US House is expected to vote on a bill the US Senate passed in early December which would repeal major portions of Obamacare as well as defund Planned Parenthood.
According to The Hill,” The measure guts the law by repealing authority for the federal government to run healthcare exchanges, and scrapping subsidies to help people afford plans bought through those exchanges. It zeros out the penalties on individuals who do not buy insurance and employers who do not offer health insurance. The Senate bill also repeals the over-the-counter medicine tax, the prescription drug tax, an annual fee on health insurers and the tax on indoor tanning services. It reduces the threshold of healthcare costs that can be deducted from 10 percent to 7.5 percent of adjusted gross income.”
