The House voted Tuesday to repeal another piece of Obamacare, this time a
Medicare cost-cutting board that opponents have decried as a “death panel” that could ration care.
The Affordable Care Act of 2010 created the board to recommend savings within Medicare if the program exceeded a target growth rate. It would implement those changes unless Congress overruled it through legislation that achieved similar aims, or if 60 senators voted to override its cost-cutting provisions.
“This unelected panel exists only to take control away from patients and rations care — and it’s seniors who will suffer the consequences,” said Ways and Means Committee Chairman Paul Ryan, Wisconsin Republican.
Some Democrats agreed but didn’t like how the Republicans paid for repeal — $7 billion from Obamacare’s prevention and public health fund — while others said the bill was just another part of the GOP’s overall scheme to take down the health care law, and that they should give IPAB a chance.

Where is SCOTUS? They said it was constitutional when it clearly is NOT. You cannot believe anything that b.o. says. But he must have lots of pictures that puts a ring in the nose of every congressman. Especially in boner and mcconnell they seem so eager do b.o.'s bidding.
This bill is a death warrant for the elderly. Something Obama can't stand - the older generation why because we see the evil he is doing. We can and should educate all about communism. Plus if he agrees with abortion why would killing the elderly make a difference to him.
If the Bastards had kept their Promises, they whole damn thing would
NOT NEED TO BE REPEALED PIECE BY PIECE!!!
Repealing all the Garbage in that thing will take a 100 years.
