House votes to repeal health care reform

Play Youtube Video

Yes, 232 Republicans and three Democrats stood in favor of pulling the plug on the Affordable Care Act today. But the “Repealing the Job-Killing Health Care Law Act” won’t likely make it through the Senate, which is still run by the blue ties.

House Speaker John Boehner called for representatives to stop health care reform before it could destroy jobs and “put us in an even deeper hole.”

Ray Sandoval is the state director for the local chapter of Organizing for America. He says the vote just shows how out of step those congresspeople are with the needs of American families and small businesses. “After campaigning for months on reducing the national deficit and working for the people, Republicans have used their first major vote in the House of Representatives to support legislation that would explode the deficit by a trillion dollars and restrict Americans’ freedom and control in their health care choices.”
