The House Republican leadership has scheduled a floor vote next week on a measure that would repeal the 2010 healthcare reform law that even the president now affectionately refers to as Obamacare.
The Republican-controlled House has voted more than 30 times to repeal all or parts of the law since it was passed. But many GOP members, especially freshmen, were pushing the leadership to get a vote on the record in 2013, reports Politico
According to Politico, House Majority Leader Eric Cantor of Virginia on Wednesday tweeted, "It just keeps getting worse. I am scheduling a vote for next week on the full repeal of #Obamacare."
Some conservatives have been pushing the GOP leadership to take a more aggressive stand against Obamacare before Jan. 1 of next year, when the law is scheduled to be fully implemented. They hope to capitalize, Politico noted, on what even some Democrats predict could be a rocky rollout for Obamacare in advance of the 2014 midterm elections.
