Congress sends bill to gut Obamacare, to certain veto

Demonstrators in favor of Obamacare gather at the Supreme Court building in WashingtonBy Susan Cornwell WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The U.S. Congress on Wednesday approved legislation dismantling President Barack Obama’s signature health care plan, putting on his desk an election-year measure that faces a certain veto. Republicans have been vowing to gut the Affordable Care Act, also known as “Obamacare,” since 2010, when the then Democratic-majority Congress passed the landmark program designed to provide health care for millions of uninsured Americans – over the united opposition of Republicans. The House has voted to dismantle Obamacare dozens of times, but Republicans were unable to get a repeal measure through the Senate until late last year, when they used a procedural maneuver denying Democrats’ ability to block the legislation.
