The Republican-controlled House of Representatives, as it has done several times before, votes today to repeal Obamacare.
And the Democratic-dominated Senate, just as it has done each time the House tries to strike down the law, will vote just the opposite.
Another day in Washington, another political game that means nothing.
Republicans will offer a resolution to strike down the law but they will offer nothing to replace it or provide health care protection.
It’s a political move designed to stir up emotions since the Supreme Court, in a split-vote, declared the health care “reform” the law of the land.
In the kind of irony that only occur in the American political system, presumptive GOP Presidential nominee Mitt Romney is promising to repeal Obama care if elected in November even though the Affordable Care Act was modeled on the plan that Romney created as governor of Massachusetts.
Romney’s opponents for the GOP nomination hammered him for that law. Now they are expected to unite behind his promise to repeal a law he helped create.
It’s a political ponzi scheme where both sides posture and pontificate and only the overpriced health care industry benefits.
