Most Democrats in the House who opposed healthcare reform won't vote to repeal it next week, one of those lawmakers said Thursday.

Rep. Jason Altmire (Pa.), a centrist Democrat who voted against healthcare reform last year in Congress, said he wouldn't vote for the Republican bill to repeal the law and that he expected all but a few colleagues to follow suit.

"[T]here's 13 Democrats remaining that voted against the healthcare bill, myself included. I've talked to a lot of them — I think we all have the same concerns. We think, by and large, it was a bad bill," Altmire said on Fox News. "It did more harm than good. But to repeal it all, including the few provisions that were beneficial, just doesn't make any sense."


More demoncrat hypocrisy. If they actually opposed this monstrosity, since they did vote against it, why not vote to repeal? Why did they vote against it if they did not oppose it? Simple political posturing, ensuring their re-election? When do we clean house people?

He's a complete putz. He ran on the platform against it-in his re-election. Don't worry. Us good folk in PA, we remember. We gave him a chance and he messed up the first week.

If you look closely at his pic, you can see some Kool-aid on his shirt.
