GOP: Repeal Obamacare By Voting

GOP: Repeal Obamacare By Voting
The healthcare law may be a decider in many upcoming legislative races.

On Tuesday, House Republicans attacked President Barack Obama’s healthcare reform law with full force throughout a series committee hearings and events at the Capitol preceding today’s vote to repeal the measure.

The GOP attacks on the healthcare law were likely intended to bolster public opposition to the law while creating an atmosphere causing Democrats to publicly defend it. Republicans want voters to rally against the law in upcoming Congressional races by selecting conservative candidates.

“If you give us more elected representatives to fix this problem, we will fix this problem in 2013,” House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan (R-Wisc.) said in an interview with CNBC.

Even if the House votes today to repeal Obama’s health plan, the Democrat-controlled Senate would kill the effort. And even if the Senate surprised conservatives by upholding the measure, Obama would veto the repeal.

“The last thing the Congress should do is refight old political battles and take a massive step backward by repealing basic protections that provide security for the middle class,” the White House said in a familiar statement. “Right now, the Congress needs to work together to focus on the economy and creating jobs.”

Today’s vote is the most recent of more than 30 House GOP initiatives to strike down the healthcare law. It is the first vote on the matter since Chief Justice John Roberts appalled conservatives throughout the Nation by becoming the deciding vote that upheld the law’s Constitutionality in the eyes of the Supreme Court.
