By a vote of 244-185, the House of Representatives put one party on record, that is to be careful what you vote on, it might come back to bite you in the ASS in Nov.
Five Democrats ended up defecting Wednesday in the repeal vote. Reps. Mike Ross, D-Ark.; Dan Boren, D-Okla.; Mike McIntyre, D-N.C.; Larry Kissell, D-N.C.; and Jim Matheson, D-Utah, all voted yes.
All Republicans vote to repeal.
Of course, this vote infuriated the Dems and cranked up the verbal bashing.
A few examples:
"It's unfortunate that the Republican leadership has chosen to set jobs aside -- not just this week, but essentially every week that they've been in charge ... to spend time on partisan messaging only," House Democratic Leader Nancy PelosiOf course Nanny Pelosi and her party chose to ignore the suffering of Americans by spend countless months hammering this bill, now law, behind closed doors, without one single Republican idea that was proposed put in to it. Plus her complete dishonesty with regards to 'essentially every week they've been in charge' BS. The House has passed 30 jobs bills, with only a tiny handful of them to ever see the light of day, thanks to the Dem Control Senate and Whitehouse.
Whitehouse talking head, Jay Carney called the vote an exercise to score political points, saying this is the kind of display Americans:
"loathe about politics in Washington."
Canary Carney has forgotten that 61% of the American people want it all, or parts of Obamacare nixed.
Remember this come Nov 2012, folks. If your Representive voted against repeal, repeal them!!!
