Health care repeal vote merely for show
Contra Costa Times

Republicans have wisely postponed their House vote to repeal the federal health care reform law until next week because of the tragic shooting Saturday in Tucson, Ariz., that injured Rep. Gabrielle Giffords and killed six people. The delay should give GOP members of Congress more time to consider the consequences of their proposed action. While the Republicans are likely to prevail in the House, there is virtually no chance they will win in the Senate.
