The House of Representatives voted Thursday to repeal Barack Obama‘s health-care reform law. You have read that sentence before. It was the 37th time Republicans have voted to repeal or defund all or part of the President’s signature legislative achievement since taking control of the House in 2011. Democrats still hold the Senate, and Obama was re-elected, so the bill is doomed to die. Republicans are well aware of this.“Obamacare is the law of the land,” Speaker John Boehner conceded after the President won a second term. So why bother to go through the rigamarole of passing a bill that has zero chance of becoming law?

Nice to see Republicans spending time and the tax payer's money on legislation that has absolutely no possibility of passing. Can the tax payer get a refund?

A Democratic congresswoman was on TV today noting that the 37 votes have cost the taxpayers upwards of $54 million dollars.(Calculated by how much these folks are paid and how much time they've spent on it.)

Fiscal responsibility ??? LEADERSHIP ??

Yeah, sinking....

$54 million? That is far less than any one of Obama's 18 vacation trips per year. Sounds like fiscal responsibility to me.

Are you jealous of all the nickles that the Gay Slewsie is earning? It is big money to a loser like you.
