Do you honestly think the healthcare bill will be repealed?

This is just a GOP stunt: "House Republicans are doing this for show," and everybody knows it, says Steve Benen in Washington Monthly. There is zero chance the Senate will agree to this "public-relations stunt," and Obama's veto power seals its failure. Besides, would Republicans really want their first big act upon taking control of the House to involve "taking away health care coverage for millions" and "making seniors pay more for prescription drugs"?

  • Yes, I really do think that eventually it will be repealed. It is not what the majority of American people wanted and it is not an answer the the health care crisis in this country.

  • No , I don't think it will be. I have heard several commentators recently who say it will be a futile effort to repeal it.

  • I think that they will try, but no. Not refusing pre- existing illnesses, letting you child on your health insurance till a certain age, putting a stop to out of control drug companies and preventing them from making us choose before medication before food. Sounds liek some parts of this bill we can't do without.

  • In U.S., 46% Favor, 40% Oppose Repealing Healthcare Law
    Three-quarters of Republicans favor repeal; 64% of Democrats oppose it

    I wouldn't say that a MAJORITY.
