House votes to repeal health reform law

The House of Representatives voted 245 to 189 Wednesday to repeal Obama’s health care reform legislation. Three Democrats joined the entire Republican caucus in the majority vote. House Republicans are now expected to begin proposing legislative alternatives, delegating this task to committees as early as today.

Current reports indicate it is unlikely that the Democratic-controlled Senate will take up the repeal measure. In the event that repeal could pass in the Senate, it would not withstand presidential veto.
