Congress Repeals Part of Health Care Law
Congress has officially repealed part of the health care reform law. In a vote of 87-12, the Senate on Tuesday agreed to eliminate a provision in the nation's new health care reform law that would require businesses to report to the IRS transactions of $600 or more. The House passed an identical measure earlier this year, which means only President Obama's signature is needed to make it law.

Senate sends repeal of new Form 1099 requirement to Obama
The Senate voted Tuesday to repeal a part of the health care reform law that would require businesses to file a 1099 tax form with the government for every purchase they make over $600. The requirement was designed to fight tax fraud and raise money for the health care reform plan Democrats passed last year. But it quickly became unpopular with both parties when businesses complained it would be too burdensome.
