The Republican obsession with repealing Obamacare continues, no matter that a Republican appointee on the Supreme Court provided the vote to determine its constitutionality. No matter that people rejected the party’s presidential ticket– which ran on the premise of repealing the law on the first day of their term.
The Republican-led U.S. House has voted to repeal the law 33 times, with a new effort underway already in the 113th Congress sponsored by Rep. Michelle Bachman. And now the U.S. Senate, where we have come to expect a bit more reason, has a new GOP sponsored bill to consider which would eliminate the Affordable Care Act’s individual mandate, thus rendering it useless by uncoupling its programs from its funding mechanism.
And that, of course, is not all.
