The Daily Quote

“Since the start of this Congress, Republicans have taken 30 votes to repeal, defund or dismantle the Affordable Care Act. When they vote to repeal the health law later this week that will make 31. House Republicans will then have had as many health-repeal votes as Baskin Robbins has ice cream flavors. As we’ve seen 30 times before, the health-care-repeal votes aren’t going anywhere. Repeal bills passed in the House are dead-on-arrival in the Democratic-controlled Senate.”
