Greedy Republicans vote to repeal health care

The Republican-controlled House has voted to repeal the health care law President Obama signed last year. The 245-189 vote marks the fulfillment of a promise many Republicans made in last fall’s political campaigns. The measure has little or no chance of passing the Senate, where Democratic supporters of the law have a majority. And Obama has vowed to veto it if it reaches his desk.

But passage clears the way for the second phase of the “repeal and replace” promise that victorious Republicans made to the voters last fall. GOP officials said that in the coming months, congressional committees will propose changes to the existing legislation, calling for elimination of a requirement for individuals to purchase coverage, for example, and recommending curbs on medical malpractice lawsuits. Like the repeal bill itself, these other measures will require Senate approval and a presidential signature to take effect, and the prospect is for months of maneuvering on the issue.

    The GOP will never give up trying to serve their corporate masters. They care nothing about the people, only about the bucks that get them elected. This system sucks.

    It has NO chance of passing the Senate and even if it did, the Big O will veto it and it won’t pass a veto. It’s a stupid symbolic vote for their base. Lets waste more time you dirtbags.

    Ugh, I have been saying the same thing. Why are the GOP followers OK with this waste of government time and money?!
