GOP Says Health Care Repeal Also Stops A Tax

The House has voted more than 30 times to scrap, defund or undercut the law since Obama signed it in March 2010. The political moves went nowhere in the Democratic-controlled Senate.

Two weeks after the conservative-led court’s ruling, the House GOP leadership pushed for another symbolic repeal vote Wednesday with a fresh argument: A vote for repeal is a vote that would spare some 20 million Americans from an unnecessary tax.
