The Senate tonight voted to repeal controversial language in last year's healthcare bill that requires companies to report goods and services transactions worth $600 or more to the IRS.


ETA: duped the healthcare vote

Good news on the 1099 thing. I never expected the Senate to repeal Obamacare.

I agree, but the vote on the repeal was much closer than I would have thought.

Never should have been in that bill to begin with. If someone would have read it................

I thought that if ANY part of Obamacare went down, the whole thing went down... did the Democrats just get duped into repealing their own pet project?
