BREAKING: House leadership now considering MORE CHANGES in reconciliation process

According to Phil Mattingly, a CNN Congressional Correspondent, the House leadership is now considering including the EHBs for repeal in the reconciliation process:

According to TPM the EHBs are the mandatory services insurers have to cover:

The EHB rule…requires that insurance plans have to cover a basic minimum of health care services, including emergency room visits, hospitalization, outpatient services, maternity care, mental health and substance abuse services, prescription drugs, rehabilitative and habilitative services, lab tests, preventive care like vaccines, and vision and dental care for children.

This would get rid of one of the big redistribution of wealth components that was built in to Obamacare.

If they include this it will be great news, however we’re still waiting on the news that they are going to include repealing the health care regulations via reconciliation as well. In my opinion, that’s just as essential if not more.

UPDATE: Here’s a few more tweets from Mattingly:
