(POLITICO) House Republicans will respond to the Supreme Court’s ruling upholding President Barack Obama’s health care law by trying to repeal it after Congress returns from its July Fourth recess, aides said.
The House will vote to repeal the health care law — again — the week of July 9, the office of House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.) said. But it will amount to little: Democrats didn’t want to repeal it when its constitutionality was still in question.
Indeed, Senate Democrats are ready to “move on” to other job creation legislation, Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) said.
In the wake of the ruling upholding the law, Republicans don’t have to contend with trying to replace popular provisions, but rather will try to hack away at the law they dubbed Obamacare.
