House Repeals Health Care Law 245-189
Republicans said they were going to do it…and so they did. And 3 Democrats joined them.
The House voted on Wednesday to repeal the sweeping healthcare law enacted last year, as Republicans made good on a central campaign pledge and laid down the first major policy marker of their new majority.
The party-line vote was 245-189, as three Democrats joined all 242 Republicans in supporting repeal.
Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) said the healthcare law on the books would increase spending, raise taxes and eliminate jobs.
What a difference an election makes.
Still, this is just a symbolic vote. The Senate won’t pass this so it’ll die.
