The Republican-led House has voted to repeal President Barack Obama's health care law. But the election-year move stands no chance in the Democratic-controlled Senate.

The vote Wednesday was 244-185. By the Republican count, it was the 33rd time in 18 months that the tea party-infused GOP majority has tried to scrap, defund or scale back the law since grabbing the majority.

The vote came two weeks after the Supreme Court ruled that the law – Obama's signature domestic achievement – was constitutional.

Republicans criticized the law as a job-killing threat to the economic recovery. Democrats said repeal would eliminate consumer protections that already have improved the lives of millions.

Polls show public reaction to the law has been consistently negative. Republicans say voters in November will have the final say.
