Time To Play Hardball: House Should Repeal Obamacare

Posted by Brian
The House Republicans should repeal Obamacare as one of its first orders of business.  Passage of the repeal is unlikely in the Senate, due to the Democrat majority in that chamber, but it is important that we get every Democrat or Republican vote against repeal on record for the 2012 second electoral tsunami.  The Republicans should not back down on this.  The Democrats always play hardball.  It's time the Republicans got out of the sandbox and into the game.

The 112th Congress doesn't begin until Wednesday, but Senate Democrats are already vowing to block any attempts by the new GOP-led House to repeal the healthcare reform law.

The Senate's top Democrats, led by Majority Leader Harry Reid (Nev.), wrote incoming House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) on Monday warning the new GOP House against advancing legislation that would undo the sweeping healthcare overhaul.

"The incoming House Republican majority that you lead has made the repeal of the federal health care law one of its chief goals. We urge you to consider the unintended consequences that the law’s repeal would have on a number of popular consumer protections that help middle class Americans," the Democrats said.
