Should the GOP try to repeal Health Care?

(I am unsire as to what I can actually write in here and it not be seen as plagerisum) but here goes.... On "Face the Nation" Sunday, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., said the results of Election Day meant that "People who supported us - political independents - want it repealed and replaced with something else. I think we owe it to them to try,"

Also on the program, House Majority Whip James Clyburn, D-S.C., defended the sweeping health care legislation, likening the reform with other major initiatives, like the civil rights laws of the 1960s. "The fact of the matter is what we did with health care is to make that a fundamental right of every citizen."

Clyburn suggested that McConnell and the House Republicans who say they will repeal the bill as soon as they take over the Majority leadership in January reminded him of the South's efforts to repeal landmark civil rights legislation.

  • per the Exit polls on Election Day showed that while 48 percent said they supported repealing the overhaul, 47 percent said it should be kept - or even expanded.

  • A good portion of it should be repealed.

    All you have to do is link your source if you aren't writing out your own words. Then you are discussing someone's work, not stealing it. :-D

  • To add to Sisteract's comment.. health care reform is so convoluted I'm surprised if anyone could make sense of all the mumbo jumbo
