Republicans aim for the health care bill

Washington DC, Nov 8 (THAINDIAN NEWS) President Barack Obama’s health care plan may not be repealed but Republicans are sure going to frustrate the plan. In a lead up to the 2010 midterm elections, the Republicans promised Americans that if they get the required numbers, they will throw Obama’s healthcare plan through the windows.

Republicans however failed to get the numbers that can make them repeal the law outright but with their majority in the lower House and their increased number in the Senate, the Republicans have promised President Obama that they will ensure that spending for the healthcare plan will be seriously restricted. The Republicans are reportedly in the process of planning how to cripple the Internal Revenue Service so that the agency will be crippled in its mandate to force businesses to register their employees for the insurance.

That though is not the ultimate goal of the Republicans. Virginia Republican Rep. Eric Cantor told the New York Times that “If all of Obamacare cannot be immediately repealed, then it is my intention to begin repealing it piece by piece”. Cantor is highly tipped to be the next House Majority Leader for the Republicans.
