House Repeals Health Care Reform, No-One Gives A Shit

I am SO tired of these monkeys.

The Republican-lead House voted to repeal the so-called "Obamacare" health care reform today in a largely symbolic vote.  This means approximately nothing, as the Senate is still controlled by Democrats and the President has vowed to veto any such repeal if it comes across his desk.

"The Republican-controlled House has voted to repeal the nation's year-old health care law, clearing the way for the second phase of the "repeal and replace" promise that victorious Republicans made to the voters last fall.
The repeal, which was passed by a vote of 245 to 189, has little or no chance of passing the Senate, where Democratic supporters of the law have the majority. And Obama has vowed to veto it if it reaches his desk.
Republicans said repeal was necessary because the law provides for a government takeover of the health care system, raises taxes and would destroy jobs."

Not only was the vote meaningless, however, but it was contrary to the will of the American people.  Check out the poll graphic from The Washington Post/ABC News:

Only 18% of those polled were in favor of the vote that occurred today.

Dear House:  Listen, assholes, there's more important shit going on than your fucking grandstanding.  Not only was this a wasted effort, but it was one that no-one wanted.  For once the citizens of our country aren't fooled by your misinformation.  So why are you taking this potentially damaging political tack?
