Despite trying and failing to repeal Obamacare almost 40 times since it passed 3 years ago, House Republicans are not finished. House Speaker John Boehner marked the three-year anniversary of the law’s passage by saying that “The House will continue working to scrap the law in its entirety.”
“This week, the House passed Republicans’ balanced budget that fully repeals and defunds ObamaCare to protect families, workers and seniors from its devastating consequences. The House will continue working to scrap the law in its entirety, and will use oversight authority to expose its harmful impacts as they continue to unfold,” Boehner said in a statement.
From The Hill:
Boehner noted that Obamacare “imposes a trillion dollars worth of tax hikes, including a medical device tax that will ship thousands of jobs overseas.”
In an overwhelming vote 79-20, the Senate however, approved an amendment that would remove that device tax from Obamacare.
