House Votes To Repeal Obamacare

Late this afternoon the U.S. House of Representatives voted
245-189 to repeal the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act,
also known as “Obamacare.” Three Democrats joined a unanimous
Republican caucus in rolling back the wildly unpopular health care
law. Unfortunately, conventional wisdom says it will die in
the Senate. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid has refused to
allow the repeal to come to a vote, and even if Republicans were
able to get a vote, it is unlikely it would get enough support to
pass. If by some miracle, they could get the votes to pass
the repeal it is extremely likely that President Obama would veto.
This outcome was predicted by Republican leadership. They now
plan to try to repeal some of the more unpopular portions of the
health care law and replace them with conservative
alternatives. There’s also been talk of de-funding portions of the bill. However they choose to proceed, The GOP is off to a good start in keeping their promise to repeal Obamacare. Hopefully, that will continue.

FCC Passes Net Neutrality Rules

A week ago today, the FCC voted 3-2 along partisan lines to implement new net neutrality regulations.  This is the first time the internet has been subject to regulation by the federal government, and it’s a huge win for left-wing activist groups.  Opposition to the rules was bipartisan in nature and overwhelming.  Over 300 House and Senate members signed a letter opposing internet regulation.  This is the camel’s nose under the tent to content regulation on the internet, Fairness Doctrines, etc.  It is quite possibly the most dangerous thing Congress has done all year–which says a lot if you think about what all Congress has done this year.

The new Republican leadership should make it a priority to block the implementation of net neutrality regulations.
