Obamacare repeal takes first step forward

House Republicans early Thursday morning took a crucial step toward fulfilling their party’s longstanding pledge to dismantle Obamacare, but Democrats showed they would use delay tactics to slow down the House's sprint toward repeal.

Long and rancorous markups of the House's repeal bill dragged into a second day on Thursday. Tax-writers on the House Ways and Means Committee this morning completed a nearly 18-hour legislative session by scrapping a series of tax-related provisions in the law, including the mandate that most Americans buy insurance or pay a penalty. Meanwhile, the Energy and Commerce Committee is still slogging through its markup of other aspects of the repeal legislation, almost 24 hours after it started.
