House Republicans Vote To Repeal Health Care Law

Washington - House Republicans voted Wednesday to repeal President Barack Obama’s signature health care reform law despite Democratic objections that the move was a waste of time.

The vote amounted to political theater because the measure is sure to die in the Democratic-led Senate and the White House has made clear Obama would veto any repeal.

Five Democrats joined the Republican majority in the 244-185 vote. Democratic leaders said a handful of their caucus members facing tough re-election battles in November might side with the Republicans on the volatile issue.

Wednesday’s vote was the latest of more than 30 House GOP efforts to undermine the 2010 Affordable Care Act, including previous Republican moves to repeal the measure or cut funding for various provisions.
