Reps. Darrell Issa (left) is hoping to move a resolution of disapproval to sideline an IRS rule related to President Barack Obama's health care law.
Rep. Phil Roe (Tenn.), a physician and leader of a 21-member group of House Republican health care professionals, said Issa is consulting with health care experts and other committees in his effort to sideline the IRS rule. Issa invited Roe, who is chairman of the Education and Workforce Subcommittee on Health, Employment, Labor and Pensions, to sit in on an August hearing on the issue.
“O and I is a good place to do this. The scope of the committee is oversight,” said Roe, who also predicted that the House will take up the disapproval resolution if Obama wins re-election, but not if Romney wins.
