Republican Party tries for health reform repeal
http://www.politico.com/news/stories/0810/40922.html

Republicans are continuing to telegraph their opposition to health care reform by filing another petition that would force the House to vote on repealing the legislation.

Rep. Wally Herger (R-Calif.) filed a discharge petition Tuesday that would get rid of the Democrats health care reform and replace it with a Republican alternative.

His push follows Rep. Steve Kings (R-Iowa) petition to simply repeal the reform without replacing it with new legislation.

The petition would force a vote to the floor without having the measure go through committee. But its merely symbolic because Republicans dont have enough seats to force a vote. Republicans have also been going after funding for health care reform, seeing that as another way to weaken the new laws.
