WASHINGTON — The Republican-led House voted on Wednesday to delay core provisions of President Barack Obama's health care law, emboldened by the administration's concession that requiring companies to provide coverage for their workers next year may be too complicated.

As the former speaker Pelosi said, "we have to pass the bill, to see whats in it". Simply amazing. Cant we replace every one of them, on both sides of the aisle?

What is not mentioned in this slanted article is that Obama and the Democrats are so embarrased by ObamaCare that they too want to delay parts of the bill until after the 2014 election.

I guess Nancy Pelosi, Barack Obama and now the US House wants to wait unil after the 2014 election to see what's in the the bill.

So you're going to trust Republicans to deal with healthcare? The U.S. spends twice as much as other industrialized countries on health care and gets no better(and often worse) results. Plus we have 45,000,000 Americans with no insurance. And during the 12 years they controlled both houses of Congress what did they do? Squat! And during the 6 years they had both Congress and the presidency? Squat!! And what would they do if they had Congress and the presidency again? Squat!!! Oh, except voucherize Medicare.

I feel the need to remind everyone once again that this is Obama's signature legislation, and not a single republican voted for this. This is owned entirely by the democrats.

I'm so tired of the "we have to pass it to see what's in it" line and it's just despicable that it keeps getting repeated ignorantly. Had you actually been paying attention, what Pelosi was saying was that the Senate version would have to pass so that the House could read it before they knew what was in it. Good grief, stop with the stupidity, will you?

If it benefits ALL Americans Republicans vote in lockstep AGAINST it. If it benefits the 0.01% WEALTHIEST Americans Republicans vote in lockstep For it. Are you beginning to see the pattern there?

ObamaCare has caused premiums to skyrocket causing insurance companies to prosper; after implementation, there will still be some 30 million uninsured; bureaucrats have now written over 20,000 pages of rules and regulations that will require hundreds of thousands of people to administer; ObamaCare has had a devastating impact on jobs; the “deficit neutral” bill is already projected in the trillions; finally note that in Obama’s 2012 campaign, he never touted health care proving that he knew he had nothing to brag about.

Let's not forget that the first bill Obama brought up before the House and Senate (and the Dems had the majority by the way) was a Single Payer system. He wants the Gov.t to control the healthcare industry. You watch, this will fail miserably and the Dems will say "see we need a single payer system" and they will probably get it.
