House GOP plans series of ‘hot-button’ votes, including 31st attempt at Obamacare

Updated

Today, the House Rules Committee is taking up a bill unambiguously named the “Repeal of Obamacare Act,” which, as you might guess, is aimed at taking out the president’s Affordable Care Act.

You may remember the Supreme Court’s ruling on that.

The House is planning a full vote on Wednesday, which NPR points out will be the 31st attempt at repealing the law:

“Over the past 18 months, the House has taken 30 floor votes to try to repeal, defund or dismantle the health care law. The first attempt came on Jan. 19, 2011 just two weeks after the GOP took control of the House.”

Politico’s Mike Allen joined us this morning to what else the GOP has planned for this month.

“House Republicans will kick off the effort this week with another quixotic attempt to repeal Obama’s health care law,” write Politico’s Jake Sherman and Seung Min Kim. “Next week, they will turn to defense, passing the Defense Department’s funding bill while trying to put the Obama administration on record as having no plan to avoid deep cuts to the Pentagon next year.”

What else are they planning? Mike Allen fills us in.
