Republican-HCR-Health Care

From: http://www.politico.com

The top two House Republicans are renewing their calls to repeal the health care overhaul and will back efforts to force votes on the House floor amid polls that show the public continues to have decidedly mixed feelings about the legislation.

 House Minority Leader John Boehner of Ohio and Minority Whip Eric Cantor of Virginia plan to announce Wednesday that they’ll support two discharge petitions — one from Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) to repeal a portion of the law and a forthcoming petition from Rep. Wally Herger (R-Calif.) to repeal the entire law — and encourage other Republicans to follow suit.

 “Either course of action would begin to implement the will of the people with respect to Obamacare,” Boehner and Cantor said in a joint statement. “Accordingly, we will be signing both discharge petitions and encouraging our colleagues to do the same.”
