Republicans dare Reid on health care repeal

As Republicans in the House of Representatives embark on trying to repeal the health care reform law, they are tossing in a bit of trash talk as well at one of their main antagonists, Sen. Harry Reid, D-Nev.

With voting scheduled for tomorrow, House Republicans are expected to have enough support in their ranks to repeal the controversial law. But Reid, the Senate majority leader, has called it a waste of time since he has no intention to hold a corresponding repeal vote in the Senate.

Rep Eric Cantor, R-Va., the House majority whip, said Reid should put his money where his mouth is. He suggested today Reid may be afraid to call for a vote.

“If Harry Reid is so confident that the repeal vote should die in the Senate then he should bring it up for a vote if he’s so confident he’s got the votes,” Cantor said, according to news reports including this one in Politico.

Reid wasn’t biting.

“Not only would repeal not pass, but according to a poll by AP over the weekend, three out of four people don’t want it to,” Reid spokesman Jon Summers told Politico. “Why? Because full repeal means raising taxes on small businesses, reopening the Medicare donut hole, and putting insurance companies back in charge of your health care.”
