You may have heard that yesterday the House of Representatives voted to repeal ObamaCare. A significant victory for both you and I. This is the effect of your votes last November to ensure our views on fiscal responsibility and leaner government start now. Your vote DOES count.
Many are calling this a,"symbolic," victory because even though the House has voted against it the Senate (under Democrats control) will unlikely even allow this to come to a vote hence halting the efforts to overturn ObamaCare. While this may very well be true the underlying reason the powers that be in the Senate will not allow the vote is because they fear 1) it will be overturned and 2) they will be on the record as to having voted for/against this initiative which will certainly come into play in their re-election bids in 2012 (would this mean career over principle?).
Face facts this initiative no matter how well intended is another step in an ever-expanding government that can only be held in check by the voters. Let's replace this initiative with a common sense approach though for now we've made another step in the right direction, congratulations and let's keep going!
