NOW it is irSS care.
No, you buffoon...AMERICA is opposed to Obamacare!
He who laughs last, laughs best!
Fathom the hypocrisy of a Government that will require every citizen to prove they are insured, but not everyone to prove they are a citizen!
Stuck on stupid. Offering their own plan would be better.
37 votes to repeal, but zero votes to simply defund—which is within their control.
Yes, they should just stop the funding for this monstrosity. That would mean something. Republicans are all hat and no cattle.
The only plan that will work is to get government out of health care and insurance. The free market produces the most good for the most people - innovation, lower costs, better service. Private charity is the best solution for the poor, but since people seem to have a fixation on government “helping”, then let there be a government funded subsidy for poor folks to buy health insurance/care.
Anything else the government tries to do is guaranteed to fail.
Keep voting, not to show who votes to repeal it but to show who wants to keep it.
What the Repubs should be doing is attaching the defunding of critical parts of Obamacare to other legislation. Throwing stand-alone repeal bills at the Senate amounts to a token exercise in futility and they damned well know it.
I agree. This seems like a waste of time and only makes the GOP look stupid.
Our leaders were always talking about “Repeal and Replace.”
Where is our replacement?
Agreed. And whereas for repeal the House would need the Senate to go along and go along at a level that Barry couldn’t veto, the House simply not approving funding for it would stop it cold.
But of course they never actually go for what would work: these votes are for show for us rubes.
House Republicans just held their 37th vote on repealing at least part of Obamacare, which will soon be implemented across the country.
Like the past three-dozen or so votes, this one has been viewed with skepticism toward the House Republicans. And there are questions whether another vote to repeal “Obamacare” will hurt the GOP’s so-called “rebranding” effort.
But Republicans argue, correctly, that repealing Obamacare aligns with what the majority of the American people still say they want. The GOP is playing to an American public that is still largely skeptical of and confused about President Barack Obama’s signature legislative achievement.
According to a Kaiser Family Foundation poll released last month, four in 10 Americans still don’t know that Obamacare is the law of the land and that it is being implemented.
That likely contributes to their skepticism and their desire to at least have it altered, if not repealed in its entirety. According to the same poll, 53 percent of Americans said they approved of efforts to change or repeal the law which is what House Republicans are doing on Thursday.
If the GOP decided to go further and attempt to defund implementation of the law, as some of its more conservative members have suggested, that’s where the party would likely find itself on shaky political ground. By nearly a 2-to-1 margin, respondents to the Kaiser poll said that they disapproved of any possible attempts to cut off funding.
There’s the principle and of course, there’s REALITY.
show how they can defund the law. the law mandates funding and then you all say they can violate the laws. show details
all democrats vote for Obamacare . all R’s voted against it.
the main thing to do is to repeal laws. laws are forever
Repeal Obamacare, repeal the 1965 immigration act.
I wish this were true. If America is opposed to Obamacare, America would not have reelected Obama.
The goal of Obamacare is to have a politicized agency in charge of health care access.
IMO, the repubs blew it when they eliminated, reaching across the aisle, the 1099 reporting of every purchase over $600 (IIRC). They needed to leave that in place so every stupid sucker in the USA could see what a cluster Obamacare was.
