House Huffs, Puffs, Blows Health Care Down
Posted on Jan 19, 2011
House Republicans, joined by three Democrats, finally got around to passing their repeal of President Obama’s health care law. Were the measure to pass the Democrat-controlled Senate and be signed by President Obama, it would be a development as miraculous and inexplicable as John Boehner’s tan. —PZS
Republicans in the US House of Representatives have passed a bill to repeal President Barack Obama’s healthcare overhaul, in a symbolic move demonstrating their gains in Congress.
The vote fulfils a top promise made to Republican voters in the November’s mid-term elections.
Senate Democrats, who hold the majority in that chamber, have signaled they won’t allow a vote on the repeal bill.
