The Majority Leader of the United States House of Representatives, Eric Cantor, has announced that shortly after the Republican led house comes back from its Independence day recess, there will be another vote on the repeal of Obamacare. This comes after the Supreme Court voted to uphold the controversial bill 5-4.
When asked about the new vote, Canter said: “The Supreme Court’s decision to uphold ObamaCare is a crushing blow to patients throughout the country. ObamaCare has failed to keep the President’s basic promise of allowing those who like their health care to keep it, while increasing costs and reducing access to quality care for patients.”
The vote will take place on July 11th and, as Eric Cantor put it, “will clear the path for ‘patient-centered reforms that lower costs and increase choice.'” This vote will pass, but will more than likely not make it out of the Senate. If for some reason it does, then there is no way that Obama will sign the repeal to his signature piece of legislation. This vote is mostly seen as a political move in advance of the November elections which will now be all about Obamacare.
