Vote to Repeal Obamacare

Recorded on January 5, 2011

It's time for common sense; I'm Ernest Istook.

The newly-elected House of Representatives will vote soon to repeal Obamacare, and by a larger margin than when it first passed.

Originally, 220 House members voted for Obamacare. Now at least 240 Republicans are certain to vote for repeal. There are 13 Democrats still in office who opposed passage; now they're on the spot to see if they'll vote for repeal.

But the House can't end Obamacare by itself; and Senate leaders insist they won't even hold a vote to do that. So the next effort will be to take away funding to implement it.

Supporters now say it's a dirty trick to call the law Obamacare. How strange. Usually it's an honor to have a law named after you; but Obamacare is so unpopular that even the original sponsors don't want to claim it anymore.

For common sense, from The Heritage Foundation, I'm Ernest Istook.
