House Votes to Repeal Independent Payment Advisory Board (IPAB), Obamacare’s “Death Panels”

The U.S. House of Representatives voted today to repeal a portion of the Obamacare law that pro-life advocates strongly opposed because it could lead to rationing of health care for patients across the nation.

Leading pro-life groups asked members of Congress to approve legislation that would repeal the Independent Payment Advisory Board, which has been derisively called “death panels” by detractors. Today, the House did just that.

National Right to Life was one of the pro-life groups seeking the vote and it criticized the 111 House members who voted against the bill.
