Senate Repeals Obamacare 1099 Tax-reporting Provision

The Senate on Tuesday voted overwhelmingly to repeal the health-care law’s 1099 tax-reporting provision, ending nearly a year’s worth of efforts to do away with one of its most unpopular requirements. The repeal measure, which passed the House last month, now goes to President Obama for his signature.

If enacted into law, the measure would mark the first successful effort to repeal part of the national health-care overhaul. Felica Sonmez – Washington Post
