House OKs coverage plans short of Obamacare rules

House Majority Leader Eric Cantor of Va., center, leaves the office of House Speaker John Boehner of Ohio, on Capitol Hill in Washington, Friday, Nov. 15, 2013, before a vote on a measure to let insurers keep offering health coverage that falls short of the law’s standards. A day earlier, the president changed course in the face of a public uproar over the flawed debut of the Affordable Care Act and said he would take administrative action — which doesn’t need congressional approval — to let companies continue selling such plans for at least another year. Unlike the House GOP bill, he would permit such sales to insurers’ existing customers only, not to new ones.(AP Photo/J. Scott Applewhite)
