To follow up on a post from a few days back, the US House of Representatives held true to its promise to repeal the health care bill. However, it was more of a symbolic gesture to appeal ‘Obamacare’ since the US Senate would have to second that motion. With a majority of Dems in the Senate, the health care repeal bill will go no further then the House of Reps.
However, the health care bill is not on safe ground yet. There are many challenges to the bill from the US courts as well. The Republicans effort is therefore a first battle in the fight to repeal the bill. Time will tell if it can stand the test of time and go into full effect in 2014.
