Repeal efforts are underway: Sen. Jim DeMint (R-SC) plans to introduce a bill Tuesday or Wednesday of this week and is working to gather cosponsors, according to his office. DeMint explained the move in an op-ed published today in USA Today. "When a president and a Congress collude to violate the Constitution and ignore the American people, everything our nation stands for is at risk. It's not too late to undo the damage," DeMint wrote. (DeMint's bill consists of one sentence, stating that "The Patient Protection and Affordable Health Care act, and the amendments made by that Act, are repealed.")
Rep. Steve King (R-IA), meanwhile, plans to introduce a repeal bill in the House. Similar bills are expected from other members. He released this statement Monday morning:
"Today the work begins to repeal Obamacare and restore the principles of liberty that made America a great nation. The American people must take their country back by methodically eliminating every vestige of creeping socialism, including socialized medicine. The Pelosi Democrats will pay a price for their overreach. This fight is far from over."

I am not saying it would be easy. My thought is just that there is enough corruption in this administration that once we have congressional subpeona power we should be able to find some shocking things. Plus they couldn’t argue that this corruption was “just about sex.” However, most importantly if we win the whitehouse in 2012 then we could still repeal it before the entitlement part kicks in.
