Today, House Republicans are voting for the 37th time to repeal the Affordable Care Act. Albert Einstein said the definition of insanity is trying the same thing over and over and expecting the same result - and that’s exactly what House Republicans like Michelle Bachmann are doing by calling for a 37th vote on the same issue in 2 years.
These 37 attempts to repeal the act have already taken up over 80 hours of Congress’ time - that’s 55 million taxpayer dollars wasted.
Wasting $55 million during sequestration, when social programs are being cut and workers are being furloughed is unacceptable. There are dozens of things that money could have been used for - all of which would be better than votes with no chance of passing.
Congress has already wasted over 80 hours on this - that’s two full work weeks that could have been spent working to pass other legislation we desperately need. Instead, House Republicans spent that time posturing themselves and wasting our taxpayer dollars.
Congress: Voting on the Affordable Care Act for the 37th time in less than 2 years is a waste of our time and money. We don’t want a do nothing Congress - it’s time to move on.
