House votes (again) to repeal healthcare overhaul
Waging old battles with new zeal, the House passed a bill on Wednesday to repeal President Obama's healthcare overhaul law less than two weeks after the Supreme Court upheld it as constitutional. The bill was approved by a vote of 244 to 185, with five Democrats supporting repeal. It has no chance of approval in the Senate and would face a veto from Mr. Obama if it ever got to him. But the House debate exposed the depth of passion over efforts to remake the healthcare system and suggested that the fight would continue next year, regardless of who wins the November elections for president and Congress.
