Have the 33 votes of the House of Representatives to kill Obamacare been useful?
Yesterday (on July 11, 2012), the House of Representatives voted for the 33rd time to repeal the Affordable Care Act (otherwise known as Obamacare) or eliminate its funding. The latest vote came after the Supreme Court upheld its constitutionality based on Congress' power to tax. Have these 33 votes been useful, or a waste of time? If they have been useful, what have they accomplished?
''Have these 33 votes been useful, or a waste of time?'' YES and NO, the House has exposed the Senate leadership of not permitting our elected Senators their right to vote yea or nay on repealing Obamacare.Censorship,a travesty of the Obama administration.Open and transparent government.

As always---they refuse to acknowledge that America does not belong to them, and them only. They just refuse to admit that we can be a country any other way than what they demand. Their recalcitrance and stubborn childishness will hopefully be enough to get them fired.
