House votes to repeal health care bill

Posted:

WASHINGTON, D.C. (KWWL)--  The Republican controlled house has fulfilled one of its biggest fall campaign promises.

The house voted Wednesday to repeal the new health care bill that President Barack Obama signed into law last year.

The vote marks the fulfillment of a promise many Republicans made in last fall's political campaigns.

The measure has little or no chance of passing the senate, where Democratic supporters of the law have a majority.

President Obama has vowed to veto it if it reaches his desk.
