House blocks funding for health care law - On Politics: Covering the US Congress, Governors, and the 2012 Election - USATODAY.com
Might the wicked witch be dead?The GOP-led House voted today to block funding to implement the nation's health care law.
The action came on several amendments to a must-pass spending bill that would pay for government operations from March through September.
Specifically, the House voted to prohibit any funds be used by the Internal Revenue Service to carry out the law's mandate that Americans buy health insurance. The individual mandate, one of the law's key tenets, has been struck down by federal courts.
Unconstitutional and defunded.
The first extremely important step in the road to recovery is to kill Obamacare in its tracks.
