Republican Controlled House Vote To Repeal Health Care Reform

In a vote mostly split along party lines, House Republicans voted 245-189 in favor of repealing the Health Care Reform Act. Unfortunately, the dog and pony show ends here, as the Democrat controlled Senate and house majority leader, Harry Reid, will not bring the reapeal bill up for a vote. If for some reason the bill makes it pass the Senate, President Obama reserves the right to use his veto power.

Instead of focusing on reversing a law that protects people with preexisting conditions, that closes the do-nut hole on Medicare prescription plans, that extends coverage to 32 million people, and provide small businesses with insurance subsidies, the House Republicans need to fix the economy and focus on cutting government to reduce the additional trillion dollar debt they added to the deficit for unpaid tax cuts.

Now, I can't wait to see what's next on the Republican agenda...
