Response: Thirty third yep 33rd vote, damn this means these jokers are determined to strike down Obamacare. If they could do this they feel they will have a leg to stand on in November.
The Democrats in NC that voted along with them needs to change parties immediately. They are showing who they really are.
WASHINGTON – The House of Representatives voted 244-185 Wednesday to repeal in full President Obama‘s health care law in a symbolic display of opposition to the law after the Supreme Court’s decision to uphold it.
It was the 33rd vote to repeal the law or eliminate funding for its provisions since Republicans took control of the chamber last year. None of the GOP’s efforts stood a chance of enactment because Democrats control the Senate and the White House, which issued a veto threat Monday on the GOP’s repeal bill. (More)
WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The Obama administration Tuesday appealed a U.S. judge’s ruling in Florida that struck down its landmark healthcare overhaul law as unconstitutional because it required Americans to buy healthcare insurance or face a penalty. (Read more)
Meet in Raleigh to stop HB 115:
The NC Healthcare Insurance Giveaway Act
Rep. Jerry Dockham (R) has proposed an NC Health Benefit Exchange Bill (HB 115) that would basically put the Insurance fox back in charge of the Public hen-house. Where the new national healthcare reform law requires states to set up a competitive health marketplace, Dockham’s industry-sponsored bill (HB115), would give NC Blue Cross a permanent seat on governing board; essentially restrict board membership to insurance executives; and severely limit the board’s power to insist that only high value and good quality health plans be offered. In other words, it would permanently cement NC Blue Cross’ dominant market position and kill any true competition.
Please join us this Tuesday, March 8th at the committee meeting to help stop the Republicans from destroying NC Healthcare Reform.
TIME: 10 :00 am, Tuesday, March 8, 2011
LOCATION: Room 544, Legislative Office Building on Jones Street — behind the Legislative Building at the corner of West Lane and North Salisbury
Rep. Verla Insko is on this committee and I think she will start trying to offer amendments so it would be good to have supporters there.
We don’t need signs, just large numbers and politeness.
Your friendly Obama-care Advocate
NC Roots for Healthcare

It is so sad the Republicans will not support our President just because he is a black man. It is so sad they want but don’t want others to have. What about doing what is good for the least of these, those who can’t help themselves. Yes there are some folks who will abuse the system but that is within all parties.
Health Insurance – Why has these jokers not been complaining about everyone having to pay for car insurance?
Life Insurance – I wish it was so that everyone was made to have some type of life insurance because everyone is going to die.
Oh well why don’t these jokers bring something to the table except trying to help those who already have.
CHARLOTTE — Gov. Bev Perdue says Republican-backed legislation pushing North Carolina to join other states fighting the federal health care overhaul law isn’t worth a veto battle. (Read more)
