Today we have a very important message from Congressman Patrick McHenry with the House Conservatives Fund.
Dear Conservatives of America,
While the rest of the world has been focused on the new iPad this week, conservative Republicans in the House have been focused on IPAB. IPAB -- the Independent Payment Advisory Board -- is the panel of un-elected bureaucrats who will be making decisions about your health under Obamacare.
This week, we scored a major victory in our ultimate goal of full repeal of Obamacare, as two key House Committees under pressure from conservatives in the House voted to repeal IPAB altogether.
IPAB is one of the worst parts (of many) that make up Obamacare. As one expert recently warned before the House Ways and Means Committee, IPAB “absolutely will” lead to rationing health care.
For a more thorough look at how IPAB would ration care under the guise of “cost containment” read this Forbes Op/Ed: “President Obama’s Dangerous New Medical Board”
President Obama is doubling down on one of the most dangerous provisions in his 2010 health overhaul law. In his proposed budget, he plans to give even greater powers to the Independent Payment Advisory Board (IPAB), a panel created by the new health law to contain Medicare spending.
The IPAB is one of the most egregious parts of ObamaCare because it puts rationing of care on auto pilot. A House subcommittee, chaired by Rep. Joe Pitts (R-PA), is expected to vote today on a bill that would repeal the IPAB entirely. The Ways and Means Committee also will vote, and then it will go to the full House of Representatives for a vote, likely next month. After that, the legislation faces an uncertain fate in the Senate, where Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX) just introduced an IPAB repeal bill.

Whether it’s outright repeal or dismantling Obamacare until it collapses under its own weight, conservatives in the House are 100% committed to ending this disaster. The House Conservatives Fund will only endorse candidates that are also committed to ending Obamacare.
Please take a minute to share the good news about IPAB repeal with your friends on Facebook.
Thanks for your support.
