House rules aim to block controversial healthcare board's Medicare cuts

The Hill, January 4, 2013

House Republicans signaled Thursday they will not follow rules in President Obama's healthcare law that were designed to speed Medicare cuts through Congress. The House is set to vote Thursday afternoon on rules for the 113th Congress. The rules package says the House won't comply with fast-track procedures for the Independent Payment Advisory Board (IPAB)—a controversial cost-cutting board Republicans have long resisted.
