Republicans may not be able to repeal the Democrats’ healthcare reform law next year, but they’re eyeing the next best thing: denying the Obama administration the money it needs to implement the law. GOP candidates across the country are running on a promise to repeal the law. But simply winning the House and Senate wouldn’t get them there; they'd need to corral two-thirds majorities to overcome what would be an almost certain veto from President Barack Obama. Resigned to that fact, Republicans are now readying a campaign trail message that voters should grant them the power of Congress’s purse strings so that they can choke off funding for the law.
