WASHINGTON – U.S. Sen. Mike Johanns (R-Neb.) today spoke at a press conference with Sens. John Barrasso (R-Wyo.) and Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) to talk about legislation they have introduced to repeal some of the most costly, burdensome and harmful aspects of President Obama’s health care law. Johanns introduced legislation repealing the arbitrary mandates and new requirements the health care law places on health savings and flexible spending accounts. Johanns is also cosponsoring legislation to repeal the employer and individual mandates, the health insurance tax, and the medical device tax.
