House Votes to Repeal Obama Healthcare Law
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.
