WASHINGTON (AP) — The Republican-led House has voted to repeal President Barack Obama's health care law. But the election-year move stands no chance in the Democratic-controlled Senate.
The vote Wednesday was 244-185. By the Republican count, it was the 33rd time in 18 months that the tea party-infused GOP majority has tried to scrap, defund or scale back the law since grabbing the majority.
The vote came two weeks after the Supreme Court ruled that the law — Obama's signature domestic achievement — was constitutional.
