House Repeals Obamacare, Romney Booed

WASHINGTON ? Pressing an election-year point, Republicans pushed yet another bill through the House on Wednesday to repeal the nation's two-year-old health care law, a maneuver that forced Democrats to choose between President Barack Obama's signature domestic achievement and a public that is persistently skeptical of its value.

The vote was 244-185, with five Democratic defectors siding with Republicans.

Mitt Romney was booed Wednesday at the NAACP conference for promising to repeal the president's signature health care reform law, bringing him to an awkward halt in the middle of an otherwise civilly-received pitch for black voters.

It was an awkward moment that forced him to go off script, after giving a somewhat pained smile as the booing continued.

Republicans just can't take a hint, can they? They continue to try to repeal Obamacare, even after the last thirty attempts failed and the Supreme Court upheld the law. Do they not know when to quit? It would seem that they just fail to understand. You would think Romney would be able to take a hint after being booed at the NAACP gathering. People want Obamacare. Polls are shifting more and more towards people wanting to keep the law. The more people learn about it, the more people favor it. It's already helping millions of people afford healthcare when they would not have been able to do so before. All the Republicans can fire out is about how it's a new tax, due to the individual mandate, which is designed to keep healthcare affordable for everyone. Everyone should be allowed access to affordable healthcare; the US seems to have problems understanding this, even with plenty of other countries offering public healthcare without issue. House Republicans need to stop trying to repeal health care reform, something which they cannot do with a democratically controlled senate and a democratic president, and start working in helping Americans get access to employment. There is no point in continuing to fight the same battle that has been going on for the past two years. History has been made, it's time to move on towards the future, a future where the government needs to get back to doing what it's supposed to be doing, working for the people.

I think I enjoyed watching Romney get booed. He should have known better than to go and shoot his mouth off about repealing Obamacare in from of NAACP members. They know how valuable Obamacare is to the nation.

He should have known better than to make a speech for a bunch of NAACP members in the first place! This is not his "core constituency" after all! I can't imagine anything other than bad press that would come out of giving a speech to a group that you are likely to offend just by stating your stance on the issues!

Well, leave it to Romney to try; I guess he figured he had enough money on hand to somehow make this work out. Of course, his types don't realize that there are some things you can't do with money.

You know what, let Romney speak to whoever he wants; just make sure someone gets video of it when it goes wrong, just like this.

I like that idea; let him make an arse of himself, then have someone post it on YouTube. No amount of campaign money can buy something as powerful as that. :evilish:

Advertising of the people, by the people, and for the people. Nothing like a little people power to take out the money dealers.
