Obamacare, health care, Republicans, repealThe committee’s official duty was to establish the terms of debate for the repeal vote, set for Wednesday. “We must pull it out by the roots,” Rep. Steve King, R-Iowa, said in his opening testimony, according to Politico.

But Democrats aren’t going easy. Rep. Louise Slaughter, D-N.Y., the ranking Rules Committee member, questioned why Republicans said they had no role in writing the law when they sat on committees that had about 100 hours of hearings.

He replied: “And many disappeared.”
