Repeal of Obamacare Falls Short 4 Votes in Senate

Actually, I’m surprised that it failed to pass by only four votes.  Looks like a few DemonRats actually paid attention to the midterm elections and decided to amend their original health care votes…NOT!

Senate Republicans lose vote on health law

By DAVID ESPO, AP – via Yahoo News

WASHINGTON – A Republican drive to repeal the year-old health care law ended in party-line defeat in the Senate on Wednesday, leaving the Supreme Court to render a final, unpredictable verdict on an issue steeped in political and constitutional controversy. The vote was 47-51. Moments earlier, the Senate agreed to make one relatively minor change in the law, voting to strip out a paperwork requirement for businesses.

President Barack Obama, who has vowed to veto any total repeal of his signature legislative accomplishment, has said he would accept the change. It does not directly affect health care.

Republicans conceded in advance their attempt at total repeal would fall short, but they accomplished an objective of forcing rank and file Democrats to take a position on an issue that reverberated in the 2010 campaign and may play a role in 2012.

    The wikileaks exposure has shown that British leftists were deliberately trying to destroy the identity of the country. The only reason Assange is still alive is the American left have been doing the same thing and I believe he has the info on them. Healthcare is just another cog in the leftist wheel. I have changed my mind, I now believe the leftists that have done this to the other people of the west, should be hanged…and then perhaps burned as fuel.
