3 Republicans Break Ranks, Vote Against Repealing Obamacare

Yesterday, the U.S. House of Representatives voted to repeal the Affordable Care Act for the 56th time – and for the 56th time, the bill won’t even advance to the President’s desk, much less survive a veto. So, the fact that there was a vote against Obamacare isn’t very interesting.

What is more interesting is that Republicans are no longer unanimous in their opposition to the health care reform law. In yesterday’s vote, three Republican U.S. representatives broke away from the party line and voted against repealing the Affordable Care Act. Their names are:

Bob Dold
John Katko
Bruce Poliquin

    I am surprised in the United States that there would be such legislation.

    To say that it is affordable, mandatory health care is a oxymoron.
    If it is mandatory then the only thing that will happen is that cost will go out of control.
    It is better that the people have an option.

    Why is it that in the United States such poor legislation is happening?

    As it is it will just be another out of control tax.
