The Fight Is Still On To Repeal Obama Care

The Fight Is On To Repeal Obama Care

The fight is still on to repeal Obama Care. WHAT??????????????? There is an on going movement among the GOP to repeal the Affordable Health care Act, better know as Obama Care.

It is not a effort to revise it, you know, just review it, critic it. Find the problem areas and make them better. They want to throw the whole thing out. Get rid of it entirely. Wipe it out. What this appears to be ( to me anyway ) is  a concerted effort to stop it at all cost. Did you know that  this Thursday will be the 37th time that a vote will be made to repeal the law. 37 times. REALLY. to give it a more clear picture, it appears that the GOP is willing to throw the baby out with the wash.

There seems to be no thoughts of the 40 million people that now have access to Health Care that they never had before. Or the million's of women that will be able to get preventive care with no up front cost, that will without argument save lives.

House Speaker John Boehner is officially reneging on his short-lived acceptance that Obama Care is the law of the land, and by holding a vote Thursday to fully repeal Obama Care.

Last November, shortly after the 2012 election, when asked if he planned to spend time on further repeal votes,  Boehner insisted that while he might try to repeal a parts of the bill, the election had changed the situation.  However, it  appears conservative backlash from within the GOP party quickly forced him to backtrack on that claim.

Both House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi & Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid have rightly slammed Boehner designs for this new vote. Which has fundamentally no chance of passing the Senate, much less making it past Obama desk in the oval office. Reid went as far as to say "the vote proves Republicans have lost their minds".

Albert Einstein defined insanity as follows: doing the same thing over & over again & expecting different results. Reid told reporters Wednesday "If his definition is true and I won't argue with Einstein, then House Republicans have truly lost their minds".

Just how futile is this vote? The Congressional Budget Office isn't even bothering to score it. In a letter to House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan, CBO Director Douglas Elmendorf explained that his office is too busy to take on the task of estimating its impact, instead pointing out to him the estimated impact of the 2012 repeal attempt, which would increase the deficit by $109 billion.


But some veteran Republicans who are staunchly against the law see this symbolic vote as a gift to their conservative freshman colleagues (although it is ultimately a vote in favor of growing deficits) who were unable to have a voice in the 112th Congress 36th vote to repeal the health reform law. 
If you are a freshman,the guys who have been up here the last year, they can go home and say listen, they voted 36 different times to repeal or replace Obama Care." Tell me what are the new guys  supposed  to say"? Congressman Mick Mulvaney asked late last month. We have not had a repeal or replace vote this year.
Boehner echoed those comments last week." We have got 70 new members who have not had a chance to vote on the President's  Health Care Law. Frankly they have been asking for a chance to vote on it".
Those members could be asking for that vote because of public perception of Obama Care. Despite an abundance of polls that have shown the individual provisions of the law are popular. The latest tracking poll conducted around the year anniversary of the signing of the law found slightly more Americans oppose than support. It's divided along a sharp partisan likely to benefit Republicans in conservative districts.
The same poll also found that a little over half the country supports attempts to repeal the law, no matter how futile they may be.
