House passes bill targeting health-care law

By The Associated Press

WASHINGTON — The House overwhelmingly passed a bill to impose new security requirements on President Barack Obama’s health-care law as Republicans maintained an election-year focus on the contentious program and its troubled rollout.

The vote Friday was 291-122 for the measure that Republicans said would address potential data breaches, though they offered no examples in which personal data had been compromised through the government website. There were 67 Democrats who joined with Republicans to back the measure.

The administration opposes the bill, which stands no chance in the Democratic-led Senate.

Yeah, you guys got it wired. America is getting along just peachy keen and we can all thank Rush Limbaugh for being our guiding star. Your responses are proof of your ignorance and disregard for truth, facts or decency. For you mini-nazis to accuse me of following dogma is so laughable it defies logic. The American dream is dead and you sh*theads pulled the trigger.

"WHAT could possibly motivate an entire political party to totally disregard the will of the majority of American voters"
.
Oh ... probably the same thing that motivated Blanche and Mike.

This is a bill shows the republicans put the tea party back in charge.
.
Eric Cantor has already made a fool out of himself over this and wants to spread it onto his followers. They are doing nothing but playing politics and come the next election the republicans will say that they voted "for security" and the misinformed voters will never know or question that there was NEVER a security problem to start with.

I suppose it depends on what you mean by 'NEVER.' It's been verified that at least one person logged in and saw the personal information of ANOTHER person.

Hey Reason - You did notice where Demorats voted for this along with Repbicans? Kind of makes your TEA party claims IG-NO-RANT.
