Republican hopes dimming to repeal health care law
WASHINGTON (MCT) — Congress is highly unlikely to repeal the entire 2010 federal health care law this year. And it’s going to be difficult if not impossible to do it next year, even if Mitt Romney wins the presidency.
Republicans said Thursday that they’ll try hard to repeal the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act starting with a July 11 repeal vote in the House of Representatives, where the party holds a huge majority. But they’d need 60 votes to get it through the Senate, and 67 to get past President Barack Obama’s certain veto. They have 47 seats in the Senate now.
