‘Symbolic?’ repeal of Health Care bill

Symbolic indeed.  Republicans FINALLY stuck to their principles for once.  What a novel idea.

The New York Times portrays the recent House vote as symbolic:

House Votes for Repeal of Health Law in Symbolic Act

The Wall Street Journal portrays it as historic:
The Repeal Vote

Noteworthy is that the House vote to pass the law was 220-211.  The vote to repeal it was 245-189.

It’s unfortunate the elected representatives of the Senate and the President will probably not follow the wishes of the electorate.  That’s OK.  We’ll vote the rest of them out in 2012, especially Obama.
