House GOP Seeks Delay In Health Care Provisions

House Republicans, politically emboldened by President Barack Obama’s delay of a key requirement of his health care law, are taking another run at scrapping his signature domestic policy.
The House has scheduled votes today to delay the law’s individual and employer mandates. It will be the 38th time the GOP majority has tried to eliminate, defund or scale back the program since Republicans took control of the House in January 2011.

The votes are a chance to score political points. The legislation is going nowhere in the Democratic-controlled Senate and the administration said emphatically the president would veto the measures.

Earlier this month, the administration announced a one-year delay in requiring businesses with 50 or more employees to provide health coverage for their workers or pay a penalty.
