House approves another bill that may undermine healthcare reform

Before breaking for its five-week summer recess, Republicans in the House of Representatives voted to strip the Internal Revenue Service of its power to enforce the healthcare reform law, the Los Angeles Times reported. The vote passed along party lines, 232-185, with four Democrats breaking to support it. The Senate is not expected to vote on the bill, according to the LA Times, but the move may indicate a possible showdown over funding for the measure that threatens to shut down the government this fall.
