9 House Repubs Vote Against Repealing Obamacare

When House Republicans get a chance to repeal Obamacare and are able to send that to a Republican President that’s a good thing. So why did nine House Republicans vote no on the repeal.

From Roll Call:

House Republicans on Friday passed a bare-bones fiscal 2017 budget resolution with few intraparty defections, as most GOP members saw the unbalanced and long-delayed spending plan as a necessary means to an end of repealing the 2010 health care law.

The nine Republicans who voted against the measure raised concerns about either the budget not balancing, a key priority for fiscal conservatives, or the aggressive timeline of repealing the Affordable Care Act, given that the GOP has yet to present a replacement plan. The final vote was 227-198.

Majority Whip Steve Scalise told reporters the defections were fewer than GOP vote counters had anticipated.

“This is a signal that we are very serious about what we’ve campaigned on for years,” the Louisiana Republican said.

These congressmen save this on the Obamacare repeal resolution.Now Correct me if I’m wrong dialog makers are in talks to create a replacement which includes a budget so why vote against it other than just to have your name on the record, when others are working to replace it with a better alternate
