    Looks like a lot of democratics in districts that aren't blood-shooting-out-the-eyes liberoidal are in save-my-ass mode.

    House votes to repeal Obama healthcare law, again | Reuters

    Good news for the public at large for this nation.

    It does three things.

    1. Puts everyone on record in an election year.
    2. Makes this a massive wedge issue.
    3. Puts pressure on Obama on making a decision to keep it against the popular will or get rid of it which will end a weapon that can be used against him and his supporters in congress.

    from your link.
    Polls show public reaction to the law has been consistently negative. Republicans say voters in November will have the final say.

    democrats just ignore that one little fact.

    It was a monumental waste of time. If there were no real issues that needed addressing, it wouldn't matter. But as things now stand, there's important work that needs to be done, and they're screwing around on MY dime.

    What do you mean a waste of time?...It's not like they had anything important to vote on, like a budget.
