House Republicans attack healthcare 'slush fund' on floor
House Republicans on Tuesday returned to their first substantive piece of legislation since mid-April by attacking billions of dollars in planned spending over the next decade to help states create health insurance exchanges. The exchanges were established in last year's healthcare law, and the Congressional Budget Office expects $14 billion to be spent on the exchanges over the next decade.

House votes to end federal grants for state health insurance exchanges
The House on Tuesday passed legislation that repeals billions of dollars spending under last year's healthcare law in aid to states to help create local health insurance exchanges. The bill, H.R. 1213, was approved in a 238-183 vote in which just five Democrats supported the Republican effort.

House GOP back to dismantling health care law
A day after Congress joined the bipartisan celebration of Osama bin Laden's death, House Republicans returned to attacking their No. 1 domestic target -- the nation's health care reform law.

House Seeks to Stop Implementation of Obamacare Exchanges
This specific bill, which would deny federal grant money to states to set up the exchanges, would save an estimated $14 billion, according to Rep. Fred Upton (R., Mich.), chairman of the Energy and Commerce Committee. But ultimately preventing the implementation of the Obamacare exchanges would save a whole lot more. The Congressional Budget Office has projected that, during Obamacare’s real first decade (2014 to 2023), the cost of these government-run exchanges would be $739 billion — more than this year’s allotment for Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, or national defense.
