Moving forward with repeal

So moving on from the SOTU speech, the good Senator Jim DeMint says let's get back to work and finish what the House started with the repeal of Obamacare!

A very encouraging thing to hear is that McConnell and DeMint appear to be in sync with the repeal effort. "Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell has said he'll "assure" a Senate vote on repeal, and on Tuesday night made a procedural move to add the House-passed repeal bill to the Senate calendar." Right on! And this article names names, so hopefully the holdouts will feel the pressure – the ‘usual suspects’: Alexander, Brown, Lugar, Murkowski. Sessions name is also listed among those who haven’t signed on...hopefully that one will change soon.


Meanwhile, the damnable indictments against Obamacare keep stacking up: "The government’s chief actuary for Medicare spending on Wednesday said he had more confidence that Republican Paul Ryan’s plan to reform entitlements would drive down health-care costs than President Obama’s recently passed overhaul."
