“Today, House Republicans will hold their 56th vote to undermine or repeal patient protections and cost savings that the Affordable Care Act has brought to millions of Americans. Here’s a look at what their bill to fully repeal the Affordable Care Act would mean for working families:”
Democratic Whip Steney Hoyer explains what would happen if Republicans were successful in repealing the Affordable Care Act.
Greg Sargent in THE WASHINGTON POST article, “Today’s GOP Vote to Repeal Obamacare is a Very Big Deal. Here’s Why.” says this vote is significant and not just something they are trying to get out of the way. Sargent maintains that it sets a tone for the debate over the King vs. Burwell challenge. He says if the Supreme Court upholds that decision millions of people could lose their subsidies and their insurance coverage would be too costly. This would upset the insurance markets across the land.

Isn’t it time we put #PeopleOverPolitics? I am sick and tired of the obstructionism that the GOP have stuck Congress with. When are people going to get tired of it enough to get out and support candidates who will represent people and listen to their constituents? If you are tired of it too, then why not take a minute and call Speaker Boehner’s office and let them know how you feel or contact your own representatives in Congress.
