House Votes to Repeal Obama Healthcare Law

The New York Times, September 19, 2010, January 20, 2011

The House on Wednesday voted to repeal the Democrats' landmark health care overhaul, in a largely symbolic step that the new Republican majority said marked the beginning of an all-out effort to dismantle President Obama's signature domestic policy achievement.

Leaders of the Democratic-controlled Senate have said that they will not act on the repeal measure, effectively scuttling it.

A House majority voted 245 to 189 to repeal the measure.
