GOP: House Will Vote to Repeal Obamacare Next Week
Republicans agreed with the White House today that it’s time to get back to work. GOP leaders announced that the vote to repeal Obamacare will be held next week.
The UPI reported:
The U.S. House of Representatives will vote next week on a bill that would repeal the healthcare reform law, the majority leader’s office said Thursday.
The original vote was scheduled for Wednesday but was postponed after the shooting tragedy in Tucson, in which six people died and 13 people, including Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, D-Ariz., were injured.
“As the White House noted, it is important for Congress to get back to work, and to that end we will resume thoughtful consideration of the healthcare bill next week,” Laena Fallon, spokeswoman for Majority Leader Eric Cantor, R-Va., told The Hill. “It is our expectation that the debate will continue to focus on those substantive policy differences surrounding the new law.”
