House Votes 244-185 to Repeal Obamacare, 5 Democrats Side with Republicans


The House of Representatives voted again yesterday to repeal Obamacare. By a vote of 244-185, five Democrats voted with the Republican controlled House to pass a symbolic vote against Obama’s healthcare law, Obamatax. Of course the bill will never make it out of the Democrat controlled Harry Reid Senate; however, Democrats are going to have to defend their vote this Fall.

The House voted again Wednesday to repeal President Obama’s healthcare law, a largely symbolic gesture that gave Republicans some revenge against the Supreme Court ruling that declared the law constitutional.

Republicans also see it as a way to motivate their base this fall as they fight to keep control of the lower chamber, win the Senate and take the White House.

Members approved the repeal legislation on a 244-185 vote, after five hours of debate that stretched over two days.

Five Democrats, most of them facing tough reelection bids, supported the repeal effort alongside the GOP, prompting the Republican National Committee (RNC) to declare the result “bipartisan.”

By a 53% to 41% edge, likely voters still want Obamacare repealed. Democrats good luck defending your position in the 2012 elections. The Lonely Conservative reminds us that GOP House Majority Leader John Boehner sis not take an arrogant gavel walk after the vote. However, it is telling how many Democrats you are going to see this election season avoid the topic. One would think if they were so proud of their vote that they would be praising it from on high.
