Eric Cantor Says House Will Vote On Health Care Repeal Next Month: VIDEO


Republicans are absolutely itching to fight back against the Affordable Care Act, President Obama's health care law the Supreme Court upheld yesterday, and now it seems they'll get their chance.

House Majority Leader Eric Cantor appeared on CBS' This Morning today and said he and his Republican colleagues in the House are planning a vote for early next month:

"We know that most of the American people don't like this law," Cantor said on CBS' This Morning Friday. The House, he said will "look towards the kind of health care people want," which he said is "patient-centered."

Cantor said that the Republican-led House will take up a repeal vote on July 11th, after Congress comes back from its July 4th recess. The House first voted to repeal the law in January 2011, soon after Republicans took control. The move, however, was essentially symbolic.

The Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell also said Thursday that Congress should repeal the law, but Democrats have control of the Senate.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, meanwhile, is telling the GOP to get over it. Our Supreme Court has spoken. The matter is settled," the Democrat said yesterday. "It's time for Republicans to stop fighting yesterday's battles."

  1. I have been watching the repubs reactions and I have yet to see one tiny spec of compassion for the millions who will suffer less because of this law. And all proud, vocal Christians. Pathetic.

  2. To quote Citizen Kane:
    "You talk about the People as if you own them. As if you could make them a present of liberty."

    Eric Cantor is a waste of space.

  4. NOTE: Obama actually LOWERED government spending, what you Conservatives are blaming him for is putting the Bush/Cheney debt ON THE BOOKS! Remember, they didn’t PAY FOR 2 wars, tax cuts for the rich and Medicare Part iDiot..

    The results of Bush/Cheney and the Republican controlled Congress (1994-2006) speak for themselves and CAN‘T BE IGNORED! Waste, fraud, abuse of power, scandal, corruption, media consolidation, sexual deviancy, reckless economics, welfare for the rich, soldiers getting electrocuted in showers due to shoddy contractor work, arms dealing, environmental deregulation, war profiteering, Constitutional violations and a corporate crime wave of epic proportions. The greatest looting of a nation’s wealth & resources in the history of mankind… Yet these shameless hypocrites have the audacity to act they’re the responsible adults at the table, BULLS***!

    I can’t believe it but House Majority leader Eric Cantor actually bet AGAINST America by shorting US Treasury bonds. WHY don’t you apathetic morons know that? Your children’s future is at risk. Republican mofo’s should be in crowded holding cells wearing chains NOT WINNING ELECTIONS! Wake the f*** UP you stupid ******’s

    But Conservative wacko groupies didn’t have enough of getting screwed over by the rich guys, NO, these morons want to elect ANOTHER silver spoon, trust fund baby Mitt Romney. A man who LIED on SEC filings… A man who ravaged manufacturing plants in the USA, STEALING PENSIONS, then sending JOBS and MILITARY component TECHNOLOGY to India and COMMUNIST CHINA… A man who takes credit for saving the Salt Lake City Olympics even though it was actually a government bailout that saved the Games. (lot’s of that going around, lol)

  6. Your health care provider will do a pelvic exam and get a sample of vaginal discharge. The discharge will be examined under the microscope
