So, they finally did it, in a somewhat anti-climactic vote on Wednesday. The House repealed "Obamacare." Hell yes they did!!! And it will die in the Senate, and even if it didn't, it would die in a veto. It's completely symbolic, completely a waste of time, and just a bone to throw to the tea partiers. Democrats actually got something out of it, by getting to explain some of the better parts of the deal. And Republicans got to grandstand. You could be forgiven for getting a little lost when listening to the GOPers though, since so much of what they had to say bore scanty resemblance to the truth. Fortunately, Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-NY) was there to translate.
