    Health Care Reform Repeal Passes House

    After a heated midterm election, the Republican-led House easily passed legislation to repeal the nation's sweeping health care law.

    The vote was 245-189. There were four Democrats that voted for repeal.

    Won't happen. Even if it gets past the Senate(which won't happen) Obama will veto it.

    Don't be so sure, 2 years ago it was safe to assume that no Republicans would be elected on a large scale for quite some time.

    Obviously not.

    The difference between 2 years ago and the last election was, Bush lost the PR battle with regards to Iraq while Obama put forth policies people didn't want. The Republicans tacked away from Iraq, but Obama can't get away from his policies.

    Iraq was a policy.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Agreed. Though he'll be put in a very interesting position. The 2012 election will then no doubt focus on healthcare. Don't want healthcare? Vote Republican. How sure are you President Obama??

    I hope you're right. It will be another guarantee that he will be a one term prez.

    The vast majority of Americans don't want this puke in a bucket, so if Dems want to run in 2012 on this, prepare for a landslide of biblical proportions.
