House Debating Amendment to Defund ObamaCare Implementation

By on 2.18.11 | 8:24AM

The House of Representatives is currently debating an amendment to the budget bill that would defund the implementation of the national health care law.

The amdendment was introduced by Rep. Denny Rehberg, who referenced Judge Roger Vinson's decision in Florida, arguing that if that is upheld by higher courts, then all of the health care law will be struck down, and all of the money spent implementing it would be a total waste.

Rehberg compared the defunding effort to driving a car to the moon -- it won't get you there, he said, but it's a start, by getting you to a launching pad. Clearly, the only permanent options are full repeal or seeing the law struck down by courts.
