House Dems Seek to Slow Obamacare Repeal - Washington Free Beacon

House Dems Seek to Slow Obamacare Repeal - Washington Free Beacon:

"House Democrats are attempting to slow the Obamacare repeal process at the committee level after the Senate passed the first step to reversing the law, according to a letter submitted to three committees on Thursday.

Top Democrats on the House Ways and Means, Education and Workforce, and Energy and Commerce committees submitted letters to their Republican chairmen calling on them to organize hearings on the “impact of repealing the Affordable Care Act through budget reconciliation.” The measure is aimed at slowing the process of repeal after the Senate voted 51-48 to pass a budget resolution that would strike down the law on Thursday."
