Video: Republicans Waste $50 Million In Failed Attempts To Repeal Health Care Reform
According to CBS News, the House of Representatives has wasted $50 million in failed attempts to repeal the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare). To be clear, it’s Republicans who are responsible for this waste. It costs $24 million a week to run the House. A total of 2 weeks of time has been spent on 33 separate votes to repeal Obamacare over the last 18 months. So Republicans have wasted just short of $50 million with their political stunts.
Republicans know these votes are for show. They know repeal has no chance in the Senate and they know it would be vetoed by President Obama. The only reason Republicans have voted so many times to repeal Obamacare is to put Democrats on the record. So, its politics and not governing that has wasted nearly 50 million tax payer dollars. Nice going Republicans.
