President Obama Vetoed Republicans Bill To Defund Health Care Act Like He Promised

Republicans laugh and celebrate after passing a pointless Obamacare repeal bill that will never see the light of day. Your tax dollars at work!
President Barack Obama told Congress that he would veto any legislation that tried to repeal the Affordable Care Act. He told them over and over again.

So Republicans pushed their 62nd Obamacare repeal bill through the House and Senate because of course they did.

Obama just vetoed the bill.

Obama wrote in a message to Congress…

"Republicans in the Congress have attempted to repeal or undermine the Affordable Care Act over 50 times. Rather than refighting old political battles by once again voting to repeal basic protections that provide security for the middle class, Members of Congress should be working together to grow the economy, strengthen middle-class families, and create new jobs. Because of the harm this bill would cause to the health and financial security of millions of Americans, it has earned my veto."

Despite the rebuke the Republicans still intend to flog this dead horse as House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) made clear in a press release responding to the president...

"It’s no surprise that someone named Obama vetoed a bill repealing Obamacare. But we will hold a vote to override this veto, taking this process all the way to the end under the Constitution."

Republicans have long been asked to offering a health care reform platform of their own but have yet to do so as this Politico report shows that they really don’t have enough time and President Obama probably wouldn’t like their work anyway.

No I’m not kidding they really said that. Here read for yourself…

Senior House Republican aides and lawmakers say they do not plan to hold votes on many of the agenda items the party plans to unveil -- such as a health care plan to replace Obamacare, or tax reform -- because of a tight legislative calendar over the next few months and the reality that none of the bills would be signed by the president, anyway.

Told ya’.
