    Begin the crusade to end authoritarian, job killing, socialist BS.

    By RICARDO ALONSO-ZALDIVAR, Associated Press Ricardo Alonso-zaldivar, Associated Press – 35 mins ago

    WASHINGTON – Eager to show who's now in charge, the House's new Republican majority plans to vote to repeal President Barack Obama's landmark health care overhaul before he even shows up in their chamber to give his State of the Union address.

    Though full repeal is a longshot — the House vote would be just the first, easiest step — they'll follow up with dozens of attempts to hack away at what they derisively call "Obamacare."

    It would die in the Senate or get vetoed by Obama.

    Yea, article covers that, BUT THIS'LL help PROVE that we're serious bout the campaign promises made bout federal spending, government overreach, etc.

    Obamcare has NEVER had majority approval. The public and electorate will appreciate this charge by us. Even tho we can't stop it totally, we CAN choke of funding for parts of it.

    Via con Dios Boehner.

    Well, defunding it will certainly be a good first step.

    I'm just afraid that this will become another huge permanent government program, like SS and Medicare/Medicaide. One that 15-30 years from now, people will say "Don't touch Obamacare!" Y'know what I mean?

    Interestingly, the GOP's campy fascination with HCR and their never-ending smear campaign may ultimately pave the way for a single payer system.

    Remember, when you talk about "Not having majority approval," at least as many disapproved because it didn't go far enough, as disapproved because they thought it went too far.

    Repealed in favor of status quo ante? Not a snowball's chance in hell. Repealed in favor of single payer? Possible, helped along by GOP fearmongering. Damned if that wouldn't be the irony of the century.

    It never had majority approval? That's probably because it was weaker then the Republican alternative put up by Bob Dole during the Clinton administration when it was tried then.

    The public wanted a public option..not forced private insurance.

    best section of the posted article:

    Supporters of the health care law have launched a "drop it or stop it" campaign, challenging Republicans who vote to repeal the overhaul to also give up the government-funded health insurance provided to members of Congress.
    "These Republican members need to understand that they are going to pay a risk for taking away people's health care," said Ethan Rome, executive director of Health Care for America NOW, a coalition of the law's supporters. "It's hypocrisy, their willingness to take health care from the U.S. Congress, while they're denying it to their constituents."
