The Hill, January 4, 2011
House Republicans plan to fulfill a campaign promise and hold a vote next week on repealing the healthcare reform law. The incoming House majority leader, Rep. Eric Cantor (R-VA), announced Monday that the vote will take place on Jan. 12, one week after Republicans take control of the House. Republicans will post the legislation Monday night on the website of the House Rules Committee, in keeping with their pledge to post bills at least 72 hours before they come to the floor for a vote. A procedural vote on the bill will occur Friday, Cantor?s office said.
