The Republican House Begin Debate to Repeal Obama's Health Care Plan

Friday, January 7, 2011

Instead of moving forward, the new Congress is electing to take 2 steps back. In a believable vote of 236 to 181. The House voted to approve the rule for another debate to take place next week. For what? It will be in an attempt by the Senate to repeal the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) signed by President Obama back in March. Four Democrats also agreed with the Republicans in the Senate to debate on the repeal of "Obamacare". So why are they doing this? For one, many believe that the Health Care Act is unconstitutional.   I would think they may be doing this because the 'Republicans' truly do no want 'change'. Yes, they may be instramental in 'changing' the law, but changing it back to what it was before the new Health Reform became law, a healthcare plan that hasn't changed in decades. This is not the change that the country needs. There are so many things to talk about, and it would benefit the Congress to move forward and not waste time, instead of trying to overturn everything President Obama has passed during his first 2 years in office.
The Democrats in the Senate now need to hang tuff and not allow the new Republican led House believe that they can now do anything they want to do. If the House wants to repeal what President Obama has done when he had total control over Congress, then let them prove beyond a shadow of a doubt that their views are better for the country than President Obama's view. Their second goal by doing this is the prove that President Obama is now a 'lame duck President'.
Next week, all the talk in the House will come to a halt and they will vote on the appeal. Then it will be a showdown with the Senate. Does the Republican House have what it takes to defeat President Obama's policies? We will soon find out. What will it mean if  'ObamaCare' is killed? According to an independent Congressional Budget Office, the House GOP effort to repeal the health-care law would add $230 billion to the deficit over 10 years. It this is true and proven, then I highly doubt that the law can be overturned.  
The feuding will continue within the American Congress. Instead of promoting 'real' change, the House has immediately in their first action with control of the House, to try to overturn the progress of a President who's only intention is to help the people of his country, while the Congress may add to the deficit by defeating the Health Care bill.
