ObamaCare Repeal Bill Admitted to House Floor

The last measure taken in the House before the week-long hiatus caused by the shooting of Representative Giffords in Tuscon was House Resolution 26, which provides for consideration of H.R. 2, to repeal the job-killing health care law and health care-related provisions in the Health Care and Education Reconciliation Act of 2010; it also provides for consideration of H.Res. 9, instructing certain committees to report legislation replacing the job-killing health care law.

In essence, H.Res. 26 brings the ObamaCare repeal bill to the floor for debate. The House Rules Committee has scheduled seven hours for the debate. All Republicans present voted to open it for debate, and all Democrats present except the following four voted to keep it from debate: Dan Boren (OK-2), Larry Kissel (NC-8), Mike McIntyre (NC-7), and Mike Ross (AR-4).

It remains to be seen whether these four follow up in their commitment to repeal ObamaCare, and whether more Democrats will follow their lead in the final repeal bill. I would note that these four Democrats also voted against Pelosi in the House Speaker vote.
