GOP To Unveil Proposal to Repeal Health Reform Law

Jan 3, 2011 5:33pm

ABC News' Jonathan Karl reports: The new Congress isn’t being sworn in until Wednesday, but the Republicans plan to unveil their first major piece of legislation tonight:  the repeal of the Health Care Reform law.  The legislation will be posted online this evening. Look for it HERE. Posting the bill tonight will allow the Republicans to have their first procedural vote on health care repeal on Friday (keeping their pledge to post all bills for 72 hours before holding a vote).   Vote on the repeal bill itself will follow on Wednesday January 12.  "Obamacare is a job killer for businesses small and large, and the top priority for House Republicans is going to be to cut spending and grow the economy and jobs,” said Brad Dayspring, spokesman for incoming Majority Leader Eric Cantor.  “ObamaCare failed to lower costs as the President promised that it would and does not allow people to keep the care they currently have if they like it. That is why the House will repeal it next week."
