House fails to override veto of Obamacare repeal

House Republicans on Tuesday failed to override President Barack Obama’s veto of their bill gutting major pieces of Obamacare. The House voted 241-186, falling short of the two-thirds majority needed to override a veto of legislation the GOP views as its blueprint for undoing the law should a Republican win the White House. Republican lawmakers said their doomed repeal bill fulfilled a promise to their base to continue their fight against the health law.
