After dozens of attempts, Congress has finally passed a bill that essentially would repeal most of the Obama.Care laws.

Naturally, Obama is expected to veto with a wide grin.

This is fodder for November and will be a big issue.

Republicans will surely bring Step-2 in focus soon enough.

That would be their alternative version that might actually make sense.

In the past, some Democrats have offered bills that simply brings everybody into MediCare.

Congress sends health law repeal to Obama's desk for first time


H.R.3762



Congress sent an ObamaCare repeal bill to the president’s desk for the first time on Wednesday, marking an election-year victory of sorts for Republicans who have tried since 2010 to scrap the law.

The bill repealing most of President Obama's signature health care law was approved in a final 240-181 House vote Wednesday afternoon, after clearing the Senate late last year. The legislation also would strip federal funding for Planned Parenthood.

The measure still faces certain doom at the White House, and Democrats derided the vote Wednesday as pointless. The president is sure to veto, and Republicans do not have the votes to override.


Repeal and Reconstruct?

What's Your Plan?

first they have to override the veto that's coming. then repeal and reconstruct.

then start by regulating both the insurance and cost of medicine/ health care.

then it will be affordable.

Surely, they won't. As I've been hearing that they will since ACA passed... and still... nothing.

that was because of Harry Reid not letting it come to the Senate for a vote.
now he gone and some of the dems that backed him, first time they voted for it it passed.

That's because the Senate never passed anything from the House before.

But it's only a campaign tactic to keep Democrats on the sharp side.

Since Democrats own it, they need to defend it and all its failures.

Oh? They had an alternative that made sense? Point it out for me then, if you'd be so kind?

Horrible law, poorly written, impossible to implement, and making the insurance companies millions. Disgusting.

So Dems in congress will get yet another chance to endorse and reaffirm their support for Obamacare by voting not to override Obama's veto?

So first thing on the Republicans agenda for 2016 is to try to repeal obamacare for yet another time? Isn't this like the definition of insanity?

Doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result?

As much as I hate the Progressive left, you make a point that makes me hate the GOP just as much! 7 years of Obama and 7 years of the GOP making nothing more than empty threats! 2 Wings same Bird!

Not really much on details there... I wonder why? The link that's supposed to go to their actual proposal is 404. So I ask again... got a link to an actual plan... with actual detailed proposals... that actually makes sense?

That's a good point.

I bet some D's are thinking twice.

They already are feeling pressure from D voters that know the whole thing puts enormous pressure on the Lower and middle "Middle-Class".

They upper classes don't care one way or the other.

I've always been a fan of the get a job and pay for your healthcare plan.

What is your opposition to that?

For many of the "you owe me" crowd, the problem is
#1 - Get a job
#2 - See #1

Not a good position for Dems in congress to be placed in, considering upcoming elections.

Ahhh... that. I thought we were talking of something that made sense? While it had some good points (surprisingly), it did little to nothing for many... especially those that needed help the most.

Here's a hint... unless it's health care that's universal in nature... and aimed especially at those who need healthcare the most, it makes no sense. But please, feel free to try again.

The job market sucks! But hey, when manufacturing is sold out to China by elected officials, those same officials find it very convenient to blame it on wages! By blaming it on wages, we see what we are now seeing by people in low skilled jobs demanding a "living wage"!

Could it be that politicians promote a "living wage" to take the heat off their own asses for piss poor economic policies?
