House Republicans vote to repeal health care law

Washington (CNN) - 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.

    "all out assault"? They started this back when it was initially passed. So what is new about it now? Same old tactics. Same old failures. Move on already GOP!

    These crazy animals need to come down to earth and think properly. SC declared this Law is a "VALID" law. Nonsense. Eric Cantor is acting worst than an animal in rut. Only way out is America need to remove all these republican thugs in next election. I as of pride say, yes, on obama12.

    You all will do anything to keep from actually doing something.You thought the Supreme Court was going to do it for you – wrong. Why don't you make an all out effort to pass a jobs bill that will actually work You all have wasted the last year and a half doing absolutely nothing. What have you accomplished since taking over the house The pitiful part of this is that the only ideas that Romney has to replace this law are the same things in there because it is his blueprint. Eric Cantor is making a stand because he wants to be Speaker. Get an idea, come up with something that will help this country for a change. You scream and holler about not raising tax rates for the wealthy because they are the job creators-where are the jobs they created when those tax rates were continued 2 years ago. They aren't creating jobs they are just lining their pockets and yours. By the way- the tax increase that President Obama is suggesting is for the 1%- people who make a million or more – people making $250,000. If you all are going to object, at least for a change tell the truth.

    Republicans are ridiculous. This will be the 31st piece of legislation passed by the House this year that contained language to repeal The Affordable Care Act. The 31st. They call them "jobs bills" because it "saves jobs" from "the job killing health care reform law."

    How can you have an "all out assualt" on something that they know is not going to pass. This do nothing congress needs to be voted out and anyone who votes them back in November is an idiot.

    Am sorry, republicans seem to act like dictators. One has to follow their wish and not vice versa. Is dictatorship allowed in this country? I do not think so, and this is not the way the country should be run.

    Again, where is the jobs bill that Boehner and rest of the GOP promised when they were elected in 2010? This repeal effort is a waste of time. Then again, when the GOP doesn't have the brains to come up with any plans of their own, they have to resort to this lame drama to pep up their drooling and moronic base...
