US House Votes Bipartisan on Senior Healthcare

Latta Votes to Repeal Obamacare’s IPAB Board; Strengthen Medicare

WASHINGTON, D.C.  Congressman Bob Latta (R-Bowling Green) joined his colleagues in the U.S. House of Representatives in voting to repeal Obamacare’s Independent Payment Advisory Board (IPAB), an entity consisting of 15 unelected officials that have the authority to cut Medicare spending. H.R. 849, the Protecting Seniors’ Access to Medicare Act, passed with bipartisan support by a vote of 307 to 111. IPAB has been one of the most unpopular provisions of Obamacare, facing consistent opposition from members on both sides of the aisle.

“As we’ve seen by skyrocketing premiums, insurers fleeing the marketplace, and Ohioans being kicked off their insurance, Obamacare is a law full of bad ideas,” said Latta. “That being said, the creation of IPAB might take the cake as the worst. With IPAB, Obamacare effectively put important decisions regarding the Medicare program in the hands of 15 unelected, unaccountable bureaucrats. When we are debating important health care policies that would affect millions of our nation’s seniors, that discussion should be conducted in Congress, where legislators must answer to their constituents.”

Latta has previously voted to repeal and replace Obamacare, including voting for the American Health Care Act earlier this year.
