    This wasn't a "repeal" vote. Although I wouldn't have voted for the bill (it's a useless show vote), we shouldn't miscategorize it. Republicans voted to delay the implementation of the Affordable Care Act. If delay is repeal, then Obama has already unilaterally repealed the bill multiple times.

    Republicans don't have 250 votes. 27 Democrats voted for it, too, because so many of them are pathetic like that.
