Today when the House votes to repeal the Affordable Care Act, a vote decried by Democrats as a political charade, it will mark the 33 rd time that Republicans have acted to defund, dismantle or repeal the health care law .
Leading into the Supreme Court’s health care decision on June 28, Speaker Boehner vowed to repeal anything that the justices left standing.
“We’ve made it pretty clear and I’ll make it clear one more time: If the court does not strike down the entire law, the House will move to repeal what’s left of it,” Boehner, R-Ohio, pledged the day before the ruling. “Obamacare is driving up the cost of health care and making it harder for small businesses to hire new workers.”
Thirteen days after the historic decision upholding the law, Boehner and the House Republicans will make good on that promise and vote this afternoon to repeal the law in its entirety.
But facing a Democratic double road-block in the form of the Senate and White House, there is not a snowball’s chance that this repeal will be signed into law.
So why will House Republicans take the vote?
