Lawmakers refuse to move beyond health care
The Press-Enterprise

After years of debate, dozens of repeal votes and even a landmark Supreme Court ruling, Congress still refuses to get past President Barack Obama’s controversial health care law. The U.S. House of Representatives is scheduled to vote as early as Wednesday, July 11, to repeal the bill in a measure that is decidedly political and assured to have no immediate impact on the law’s survival. Even in the unlikely event that the Democratic-controlled Senate would vote to repeal the law, Obama has promised a veto.
