ObamaCare repeal passes in the House 245-189, Onto the Senate …
Hat tip goes to http://twitter.com/#!/NROCorner, which posted a link to the video below in which Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell said, House GOP ‘Kept their promise.’ He also said Senate will soon follow suit.
“Republicans in the House of Representatives kept their promise to you by voting to repeal the Democrats’ health spending bill.
“As one of their first acts since taking the majority, they voted to scrap this monstrosity before it does any more damage to our economy or to the care that patients receive. “Now they’ll work to replace it with commonsense, step-by-step reforms that actually lower costs.
“They heard you when Democrats in
jammed this 2,700 page bill through Congress that increased costs, raised taxes, discourages job-creation, and cut Medicare. Washington
“And they heard you in November, when you told
you were sick of trillion dollar spending bills put together in the dead of the night and packed with sweetheart deals. Washington
“Republicans have been listening. And now they’re acting.
“I want to congratulate our colleagues in the House on this important first step.
“I hope the Senate will soon follow suit with a vote of its own.
“The Democratic leadership in the Senate doesn’t want to vote on this bill. But I assure you, we will.
“We should repeal this law and focus on common sense steps that actually lower costs and encourage private sector job creation.
“That’s what Americans want. It’s the right thing to do.”
