Obama Vetoes Obamacare Repeal Bill

Teabagistan has been patting itself on the back all week for finally getting an Obamacare repeal bill to the president’s desk after literally dozens of attempts. You know how this ends. NBC News reports:

President Obama vetoed a bill Friday aimed at repealing his signature health care law. “This legislation would not only repeal parts of the Affordable Care Act, but would reverse the significant progress we have made in improving health care in America,” the president wrote members of the House in a letter. The move comes after the House’s recent passage this week almost entirely along party-lines, 240 to 181, to repeal the Affordable Care Act and defund Planned Parenthood. Just one Democrat voted for the bill and three Republicans voted against it.

The sole Democrat to vote for the repeal was Rep. Collin Peterson (D-Minn), who has broken party ranks on many other issues. Peterson has an “A” rating from the NRA and opposes same-sex marriage.
