House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.) said Thursday that the Republican-led House will vote on repealing the health care law soon after the July 4 recess.

Cantor, who sets the floor schedule in the House, said in a statement that the House will vote on the repeal the week of July 9 – which Cantor said will clear the path for “patient-centered reforms that lower costs and increase choice.”

“The Supreme Court’s decision to uphold ObamaCare is a crushing blow to patients throughout the country,” Cantor said. “ObamaCare has failed to keep the President’s basic promise of allowing those who like their health care to keep it, while increasing costs and reducing access to quality care for patients.”

UPDATE: Cantor said in a follow-up Tweet that the vote will be July 11.

    A Repeal to the Health care law to take place soon after its been upheld? Is there possibly light at the end of the tunnel? Is there someone, somewhere who is trying to shine light up Obamas ass? Lets hope. Read more about this repeal at Phoebes Detention Room. —Nick from WCMA2

  2. Thanks for the reblog Nick. I wish I was as optimistic as you.

    I can’t comment on your site, the post comment button doesn’t exist, I’m finding that to be an issue on several blogs.
