As of now, I am in control here, in the White House

House GOP Sets Congress on Path Toward Obamacare Repeal

What I love about this is that they are repealing Obamacare while Obama is still in office. It’s like amputating a leg without giving anesthesia.

From the Washington Examiner:

Congress has officially taken the first step toward repealing the Affordable Care Act after the House voted to approve a budget resolution that directs committees to start crafting legislation to repeal the law.

The House voted 227-198 Friday to approve the resolution a day after the Senate voted 51-48 to clear it. Nine conservative House Republicans voted against the measure: Justin Amash of Michigan, Charlie Dent of Pennsylvania, Brian Fitzpatrick of Pennsylvania, Walter Jones of North Carolina, John Katko of New York, Raul Labrador of Idaho, Tom MacArthur of New Jersey, Thomas Massie of Kentucky and Tom McClintock of California.

The resolution, which is nonbinding, sets budgetary and spending levels for Obamacare. It will act as a vehicle for Republicans to craft legislation that would gut Obamacare via the reconciliation process.

  1. What I love about this is that they are repealing Obamacare while Obama is still in office. It’s like amputating a leg without giving anesthesia.

    So true. Love it.

    What’s with the 9 Republicans voting against, especially Amash?

  2. I also thought it deliciously vindictive that Congress has made this decisive move before Obama even leaves office.
    After poking his finger in the eye of America, he deserves to have his disastrous “legacy” dismantled before his very eyes.
    Of course he is so self absorbed I’m sure he still thinks Americans are just too stupid to understand that he knows what is best for them.
    Less than a week to go.
