    Default 32nd Obamacare repeal vote

    Just In

    Yes that's right, the House of Representatives is set to vote to repeal the Obama Healthcare legislation again ...



    House Gears Up to Repeal Obamacare (Again)

    http://abcnews.go.com/blogs/politics...amacare-again/


    Less than two weeks after the Supreme Court upheld the president’s health care reform law, the House of Representatives is set to vote to repeal the legislation again in what Democrats have decried as a political show vote while also embracing it as another opportunity to explain the perks of the law to voters.


    Lawmakers will begin debating the GOP’s proposal to repeal the law Tuesday, with a final vote expected Wednesday afternoon.


    To date, the House has voted 32 times to defund, dismantle and repeal the Affordable Care Act.

    In one of the first acts of the new Republican-controlled House of Representatives 18 months ago, the House first voted to repeal the health care law, January 19, 2011, passing the measure 245-189.
    At the time, just three House Democrats — Reps. Dan Boren of Oklahoma, Mike McIntyre of North Carolina, and Mike Ross of Arkansas — joined the House GOP in supporting repeal. A month later, repeal failed in the Democrat-controlled Senate 47-51.


    Despite an inadequate sum of votes in the Senate to repeal it, House Speaker John Boehner said voting for repeal in the aftermath of the court’s decision will only act to strengthen his party’s resolve.

    Now, rank and file Republicans are lining up behind the speaker to show some backbone.

    “I don’t think it’s symbolic,” Rep. Allen West, R-Fla., told ABC Monday evening.
    “Now that we know that the truth is out there that this is a tax, we need to be able to let the American people know where we stand.”


    Democrats are using the opportunity to renew support for the law, dismissing the GOP’s latest repeal attempt as a “political charade” and “campaign fodder.”

    Rep. Raul Grijalva, D-Ariz., urged Democrats to stay on offense and trumpet the benefits of the law that are already being realized by voters, unlike the defensive posture congressional Democrats took in the 2010 midterm election.

    “We’re not going to be defensive or apologetic,” Grijalva, co-chair of the Congressional Progressive Caucus, declared.
    “Things need to be improved in the law — we know that — but repeal of it is something that we should all be very aggressive about not only voting against but make it part of the campaign dialogue or debate that goes on for the next four months.
    I think it’s going to help us.”

    Rep. Rosa DeLauro, who played a chief role in passing the bill, said the GOP’s attempt to repeal the law is not just about politics, but also what would be taken away from Americans already enjoying assistance mandated by law.

    “It’s more than just whether or not they will do it and its politics.
    It is about the philosophy that is behind it and who they are willing to hurt and whose side they’re on.
    That’s what this vote is about,” DeLauro, D-Conn., said.
    “It’s making health care affordable for those who have it and for those who do not have it. That is what Republicans do not want to have happen.”


    But no matter the miniscule odds of successfully repealing the law with the current dynamic of a divided Congress, Republicans remain steadfast in their quest to fulfill a campaign promise that helped propel them into the majority two years ago.

    “If you’ve got orders to take a hill, you’re going to keep going until you take the hill,” West, R-Fla., explained.
    “The American people don’t want this Patient Protection Affordable Care Act.
    It’s heinous, it’s onerous.
    They want it gone so we as their representatives are going to continue to do what they sent us up here to do which is every way that we possibly can make sure that this bad policy, this bad law is irradiated from our rolls.”

    Where were Stretch Nan's jobs, or Hapless Harry's budget?

    Another idiotic thread of democrat desperation. I applaud the effort, but November will be cold in blue states.

    After November if the Republicans do take the White House they only have two options:

    Pull out all the areas of the law money is impacted by reconciliation and leave the rest of the law the mandate that insurers take anyone that asks and cover them among them and well the Democrats filibuster repealing the rest of the law they can do that for, making repealing the other parts not plausible.

    Push for a full repeal of the whole law and fight it out in the Senate, good luck with that making a case the whole law must go and try to turn the Democrats over to their side and good luck with that.

    In short either way a serious mess to try.

    republicans said a health care bill would take years for them to create, they have not even started yet, they can either fix what we have or get busy with a plan of their own and we can talk about it in 4 years when they finish

    let the people vote for which one they think is better

    belief is what is important, not so much what you believe, for instance, an ordinary sugar pill without belief helps no one, but with belief it can cure your ills and it can be quite the amazing little pill - the magic really comes from within

    I don't see the point, other than to replace it with single payer.
    “If there be a human being who is freer than I, then I shall necessarily become his slave. If I am freer than any other, then he will become my slave. Therefore equality is an absolutely necessary condition of freedom.”

    I suggest you call Debbie "Baghdad Bob" Wasserman Schultz and aks her what she is talking about with the 4,000,000 jobs she claims have been created.... and if her number is correct... then does Boehner get credit????


    ROFL!!!!
    Ineptocracy - a system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers.

    Depends on how you look at the congressional right-wing jobs creations they can call their own ... I count 9 abortion bills (where 3 or 4 were passed 2 and 3 times) ... the defunding of NPR and planned-parenthood ... there's a bunch ... including reaffirimg In God We Trust as the U.S. Motto ... how'bout that credit-rating debacle ?

    Oh, the Holder Contempt is their biggest jobs creations to date ... I mean c'mon ... repealing Obamacare for the 32nd time gets a little redundant ... but let's be fair ... astonish us with great tales and fables of epic jobs creations bills by the House republicans and tea partiers thus far ...
