BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.

To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.

To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.

Measure to repeal health care reform will be vetoed: President Obama

Measure to repeal health care reform will be vetoed: President Obama

President Obama will veto legislation that would repeal the 2010 health care reform law, the administration said Wednesday.

“The last thing the Congress should do is refight old political battles and take a massive step backward by repealing basic protections that provide security for the middle class. Right now, the Congress needs to work together to focus on the economy and creating jobs,” the White House said in the statement.

That veto threat came in the wake of an expected vote Thursday by the House of Representatives on H.R. 45, a measure to repeal the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act introduced by Rep. Michele Bachmann, R-Minn.

While the GOP-controlled House is expected to approve the measure, the Senate, where Democrats are in the majority, is unlikely to take up the bill.

A similar repeal bill approved last year by the House died when the Senate declined to take up the measure. The House action came shortly after the Supreme Court upheld the reform law's individual mandate as well as the bulk of the law.
