Unfortunately, we didn't win both houses of congress, and as such passing a repeal law would be a futile effort that wastes more of your money. We did promise to do what we could though, and as such we promise that we will do everything in the Houses power to defund the parts of the bill that are the worst that they can be, and we'll go head to head with the President over the budget to do so."

Of course, that'd mean politicians would have to tell the truth and think of you and me like adults.

Instead its like your dad promising you that he'll buy you a bicycle, you go to the store and pick out your favorite one, then go up front and he tells you "oops, we wasted money driving here for no reason, I don't have the money to buy you a bike"
I have no problem whatsoever with this upcoming repeal vote. That is just the beginning.

Under the President’s budget, debt held by the public would grow from $7.5 trillion (53 percent of GDP) at the end of 2009 to $20.3 trillion (90 percent of GDP) at the end of 2020.
The president=obama, not Bush. Now, the only avenue to reduce both is through raising taxes or cutting spending. You don't start cutting now, the bloat will continue to grow and grow.

Luckily, the GOP has the American people behind them, with a mandate.
