House passes bill targeting health care law security

WASHINGTON – The House has passed a bill that would impose new security requirements on the Obama administration’s implementation of the health care law.

The vote was 291-122. Republicans say the bill was necessary to deal with potential security breaches, though they have offered no examples of cases in which personal data had been compromised.

They cited the case of Target Corp., which was the victim of hacking last year.

Democrats said the bill is designed to scare Americans from enrolling for coverage.

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

The House voted more than 40 times last year to repeal, replace or undo parts of the law. Republicans see the law’s troubles as paying political dividends in this election year.
