July 17 repeal will fail.
I think the vote is more symbolic than anything else. For those not familiar with how a bill is repealed its the exact same process as how a bill is
Either house can introduce a bill repealing the law... Both houses must sign off on it and the President is still required to sign it. If he vetos the
bill, which he would since Obama is not going to sink his only, albeit terrible, accomplishment, then the house would need override the veto. Since an
override requires a 2/3's majority its not going to happen.
What I see happening is a backlash against members of Congress who support obamacare. If the people are truly pissed about the Supreme Court decision
its possible they will come out in droves on election day to start firing their representatives and replacing them.
As far as the Wisconsin Governor's actions I applaud it, along with any other Governor who takes a similar stand. At what point are we going to tell
the government enough is enough and draw a line in the sand. I think this win, as another poster pointed out, is going to blow up in Obamas face.
As far as Gov. Walker goes he is the only Governor to survive a recall effort, and the point margin he survived it with, imo, speaks volumes about the
mood of the people of the State of Wisconsin and a possible barometer of the mood of the American people overall.
As far as refusing to pay the tax etc its not unprecedented. There have been a few times in US State / Federal history where a tax revolt has occured
and was effective in getting it changed.
The upcoming elections should be interesting....
