Rehberg Proposal To Defund Healthcare Law Passes U.S. House

Republicans in the U.S. House of Representative on Friday approved a series of budget amendments to strip funding for President Obama’s new health care reforms.

By a vote of 239 to 187, the House passed an amendment from Denny Rehberg (R-Montana) to prohibit any funds from being used to implement any provision of the new health laws.

The health reform laws represent the “largest taking of American liberty in the history of this country,” Republican Rep. Steve King of Iowa said on the House floor, CBS News Radio Correspondent Bob Fuss reports.

Rep. Phil Gingrey (R-Ga.), meanwhile, called the health care reform package “the worst bill that’s ever been passed in the history of the Congress.”

Gingrey continued, “We can start over, we can make this bill right, we can enact health care reform that truly does bring down the cost for patients.”
