Update: Senate to Consider Obamacare Repeal
The Senate may vote whether to repeal Obamacare sometime this week.
Senator Jim DeMint (R-SC) will file his Obamacare repeal bill (S. 192), which has the support of every Senate Republican, as an amendment to the FAA re-authorization bill.
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) might try to stymie the vote so he can bolster support among leery Democrats at their retreat planned for Wednesday-Friday of next week,
The Senate may also vote on a repeal of Obamacare’s 1099 provision, a $19 billion tax on small business. Senator Mike Johanns’ (R-NE) bill (S.18), has 60 cosponsors.
