With the Supreme Court having upheld the constitutionality of the Affordable Care Act (“ACA”), the majority of Americans have made clear that they want to move beyond the debate over health care reform and let the law be implemented. Republicans, however, have apparently not gotten the message, as they have continued their incessant and unfounded attacks on the ACA. For example, we have witnessed:
* 31 House Repeal Votes: House Republicans took their 31st vote since January 2011 to repeal, defund, or dismantle health care reform, with no proposal to replace any of the significant benefits of the law. All 31 votes were, of course, pointless as repeal legislation would not pass the Senate or, even if it did, it would be vetoed by President Obama. Yet House Republicans continue to hold these votes, with one GOP Congresswoman Marsha Blackburn saying that she wished the House would vote to repeal the ACA every day.
