House Plans Amendment to De-Fund PPACA

The House plans to amend pending legislation funding the federal government to add provisions de-funding implementation of PPACA. The Hill quotes House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R. Va.) on this point, and notes that the current government funding bill is scheduled to expire on March 4, 2011.

Presuming that the de-funding amendment to the bill passes the House, it likely will fail in the Senate just as did the House bill to repeal PPACA, a few weeks ago. Given the crushing federal debt, however, nothing is certain. I will keep readers posted on any unexpected results.
