House Votes 223-181 To Repeal IPAB

As expected, the GOP-led House voted Thursday to repeal the Medicare cost-cutting Independent Payment Advisory Board (IPAB), by a margin of 223-181. The bill was funded by a medical malpractice reform measure.

Seven Democrats voted for repeal, while 10 Republicans voted against it.

The bill now goes to the Senate, where it’s expected to fail. The White House has threatened veto.
