Healthcare truce likely to be short
Both sides in the bitter healthcare debate say their truce over the controversial law is only temporary. Republicans say they will soon renew their efforts to repeal the law, while supporters say their timeout from publicly arguing against repeal will run out as soon as the House brings its bill back to the floor. "We are just taking some more time," Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-Wash.) said on "Fox News Sunday." "The repeal of healthcare is a top priority for the new majority in Congress." The short truce in the rhetorical war comes as Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D-Ariz.) fights for her life after being shot in the head during a community event. Republicans postponed a healthcare repeal vote in the wake of the tragedy that left six people dead.
