On Monday July 10th republicans voted to repeal the Affordable Health Care Act. This marks the 31st attempt to repeal, defund and/or dismantle the different healthcare plans assocaited with Obamacare.
Even now after 30 failed tries and the Supreme Cou rt voting to uphold the law, the question has to be asked, "Should Republicans contintue to try to block the Affordable Heatlh Care Law, or Should they let it go and focus on other important issues".
Republican attempts to repeal Affordable Health Care have so far been met with very little success, and of course Democrats just as overwhelmingly fight to uphold it. The policitcal tug of war of course has a ripple effect, other issues are getting over looked.
When asked in a poll if Health Care should continue to be fought for Democrats and Republicans gave unsurprising answers. What holds more interest is where independents lie.
Independents are aren't split down the center on repealing the Health Care for America Law. In fact the majority of independent voters would like to see Republicans should ease off their ongoing efforts to block the law and focus on other important issues facing the American people.
Support for repealing Health Care remains strong among Republicans, as obviously there is some real passion behind ensuring that sick people do not have access to health care. No one should ever assume that just becasue something has failed for a 31st time that this will not change in the future. The upholding of the Affordable Health Care Act by the supreme court has done little to sway Republican opinion.
The future remains uncertain and may largely depend on the shifiting opinions of Independent voters and of course the results of the 2012 elections.
