      So the GOP members of the House of Representatives made a promise that they would create legislation to repeal the Health Care Reform law. Since the GOP holds a numerical advantage in the House, it's going to pass, even though it will not pass in the Senate, and even if it did, Obama would Veto the bill. In other words, this is just a big waste of time.

      My suggestion to the Democratic members of The House is don't spend a single minute debating this bill. It isn't worth the time or the effort. I also suggest that every Democratic member of The House abstain from voting on the measure.

      I am not suggesting that Dems become the new party of No, but rather that they are the party that wants to cut government waste by not engaging in these frivolous exercises in futility.

      Let the GOP own this complete waste of time and effort when the country needs real work done to create jobs in the US. Let the GOP explain to the country why they did this.
