Democrats dismiss GOP health care repeal push

Washington (CNN) - President Barack Obama is dismissing Republicans' plans to ram a repeal of his health care overhaul through the House of Representatives in the opening days of the new Congress, portraying the move as little more than a hollow nod to the GOP's conservative base.

Republicans unveiled repeal legislation Monday night - two days before they officially take charge of the House. They plan a key procedural vote on Friday and a final vote the following Wednesday, according to House GOP sources.

    "Let's hear the GOP's reasons for trying to repeal Healthcare reform"

    They don't have reasons. They have fabrications and excuses. They use hollow, focus-group-tested, unsupportable rhetorical diarrhea like calling the ACA "job killing" without even the semblence of an attempt at justifying their hyperpartisan ideological blather with facts, evidence, studies, expert opinions or other verifiable and credible backup. They do this because they know that the "news" media will reprint it as though it is a legitimate and well-founded position in the neverending quest to one up the other "news" outlets with the latest in the our culturally and intellectually vapid he-said-she-said game...all without ever once passing the statement through any sort of analytical seive to test its veracity. Welcome to the land of idiocracy....did you just arrive?

    Here we go again! The party of No is appealing the healthcare reform. They have come up with a better solution for everone. The republicans is going to try and denied anything that Pres.Obama passed. They just HATE for him to succeed, they would rather see Pres.Obama fail and blame him for it. If they won't listen to Pres.Obama then it is up to we Americans to tell them want we want. After all we did put them in office to help govern the U.S. not to dictate us. Americans STAND UP FOR RIGHTS!

    Games, games and more games for these Republicans.. They scream socialism and communism but yet enjoy their government paid health insurance??!!! If the Republicans are serious they would give up their socialist communist paid for by society health care and pay for it themselves!!! But we all know that's not going to happen... Do as I say not as I do... sad days for America!
