House Repeals Another ObamaCare Provision

March 22, 2012

Washington, DC – Today, Ways and Means Chairman Dave Camp (R-MI) issued the following statement after the House, in a bipartisan vote, passed H.R. 5, the “Protecting Access to Health Care Act,” which repeals the Independent Payment Advisory Board (IPAB):

“On the eve of the second anniversary of the Democrats’ health law, the House again took action to dismantle a dangerous Washington power grab that puts 15 unelected and unaccountable bureaucrats between seniors and their doctors.  This is a victory for seniors, people with disabilities, and the doctors that provide care for them.  If left in place, these bureaucrats could meet in total secrecy and make decisions that would threaten seniors’ access to health care.  I urge the Senate to follow suit and stand up to ensure that doctors, patients, and families have a voice in their health care decisions.”
