Last week, members of the House of Representatives voted 245-189 in favor of H.R. 2, "Repealing the Job-Killing Health Care Law Act." The vote, which is the Republicans first major step at rolling back health care reform, was split along party lines with just three Democrats voting to support the repeal. It is no surprise that the bill passed the Republican-controlled chamber, but does not stand much of a chance of reaching the Democratic-controlled Senate floor, let alone President Obama's desk. The House also voted and passed H. Res. 9, which will provide guidelines to committees on how to draft replacement legislation to fulfill the GOP pledge to "repeal and replace" health care reform. In the 112th Congress, we can expect to see an abundance of stand-alone legislation introduced with the intent to repeal specific provisions of the health care reform accompanied by hearings on the legislation.
