OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Members of Oklahoma's U.S. House delegation, including the lone Democrat, have voted for a resolution to repeal the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.
Congressman Dan Boren joined fellow U.S. Representatives Tom Cole, James Lankford, Frank Lucas and John Sullivan, all Republicans, in passing HR 6079, which would repeal the law in its entirety. Boren was among five U.S. House Democrats who voted for the resolution on Wednesday.
OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — More than a week after the U.S. Supreme Court upheld the sweeping federal health care law, Oklahoma's political leaders have offered few specifics about how the state will proceed in complying with its provisions.
Members of the Republican-controlled Legislature were quick to issue press releases condemning the high court's decision. Some have vowed to continue fighting implementation of the law in Oklahoma.
