Republicans in the House will vote today to overturn the affordable care act, something they've done before.
"The American people do not want to go down the path of Obamacare. That's why we've voted over 30 times to repeal, defund it, replace it," Rep. John Boehner,(R-Ohio) Speaker of the House, says.
Democrats say the vote is just for show. "It is political theater that puts political games ahead of the health of the nation's citizens," said Rep. Louise Slaughter (D-N.Y.).
But Republicans insist they're listening to their constituents. "We in the House majority, elected in 2010 precisely to overturn and replace this law, are expressing the will of the American people," says Rep. Nan Hayworth (R-N.Y.)
The House is expected to pass the bill today, and then it moves to the Senate side of Capitol Hill where Democrats are in the majority. That means it is practically dead on arrival.
"We are hoping to have a chance to vote to repeal Obamacare again," said Sen. Mitch McConnell, (R-Ky.) the Senate Minority Leader.
According to President Obama, healthcare reform is here to stay. But he did offer to work with Republicans to make some changes. "I will work with anybody to improve the health care law where we can, but this law is here to stay," he said.
But Republicans say there will be no compromise. "We're going to do everything we can to stop it," Boehner promises.
And that, Democrats say, is part of the problem, accusing the GOP of not offering an alternative.
The last time a full repeal came up for a vote in the House, three Democrats sided with Republicans.
