Republicans who try to block implementation of the Affordable Care Act and the Dodd-Frank Act will face questions about the consequences, according to White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs.
Gibbs talked about Republican interest in blocking the initiatives Monday during a press briefing.
A reporter asked about the possibility that Republicans could gain a majority in the House, the Senate or both in the upcoming November elections. The reporter asked Gibbs how concerned the White House is about the effects that a change in dynamics might have on the Affordable Care Act and the Dodd-Frank Act.
Gibbs said he expects Democrats to retain majorities in both the House and the Senate.
Some of the effects of any shift “would depend on what the numbers end up being,” Gibbs said, according to a transcript provided by the White House.
