It has become a truism that House Republicans have voted dozens and dozens of times — at least 50 in all — to repeal Obamacare. “They have been obsessed with repealing the Affordable Care Act,” President Obama told a Democratic National Committee meeting in Washington last month. “You know what they say: 50th time is the charm. Maybe when you hit your 50th repeal vote, you will win a prize. Maybe if you buy 50 repeal votes, you get one free. We get it.”
For more than a year, Democrats and their advocates in the press have been ridiculing the GOP’s anti-Obamacare efforts. “The House Republicans have voted more than 30 times to repeal Obamacare,” White House press secretary Jay Carney said in March 2013. “The House has wasted weeks voting more than 40 times to repeal Obamacare,” Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said in October of last year. “If at first you don’t succeed, try 50 times — Republicans [are] holding a 50th vote to repeal Obamacare,” MSNBC’s Al Sharpton said last week. Many others have said similar things.
