Dems, GOP battle over healthcare law as 2013 spending bill advances

The Hill, June 14, 2012

Democrats and Republicans clashed Tuesday over President Obama’s signature healthcare reform law as Democrats moved forward with a 2013 spending bill that funds it. The Labor, Health and Human Services appropriations bill passed out of a Senate Appropriations subcommittee by a vote of 10 to 7 with the GOP united in its opposition to increased funding for the Affordable Care Act. It heads for a full committee vote on Thursday. Protecting the ACA’s funding could be tricky if part of the law is struck down by the Supreme Court later this month.
