Senate Dems OK to Repeal Part of Health Law

WASHINGTON (AP) — Senate Democrats don't plan to join the House in voting to repeal the massive new health care law, but they do want to eliminate a small portion of the law that is unrelated to health care.

Three Senate Democrats wrote House Speaker John Boehner Thursday, asking him to pass a bill repealing a new tax filing requirement for businesses. Starting in 2012, nearly 40 million U.S. businesses would have to file tax forms for every vendor that sells them more than $600 in goods.

The provision is expected to raise $219 billion over the next decade, to help pay for the health care law. Senators Ben Nelson of Nebraska, Maria Cantwell of Washington and Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota, said the Senate would act quickly if the House repeals the provision.
