I could have sworn they broke 40 attempts.

So, what happened to all those jobs Boner said he was going to create?

Everyone's missing the point of these votes, and it's what I sincerely hope Harry Reid can one day finally get through his thick skull.  The House GOP doesn't expect to actually repeal PPACA.  It's political theater, designed to generate red meat attack ads later: "Did you know Congressman xxxxx voted 37 TIMES for Big Government takeover of your healthcare?"

If Harry Reid had his shiat together, he'd be doing the same thing in reverse in the Senate.  Hold votes over and over again that he knows are popular but the Republicans would filibuster just because.  "Did Senator Herpaderp voted 58 times against raising the minimum wage?  And he voted 47 times against feeding children and saving kittens?"

The GOP said they were focused on jobs. They have tried to repeal Obamacare 37 times.

Since 2010, the unemployment rate has gone down, and more and more people are getting back to work. The economy is improving.

The Republican road to recovery is working!

Dear Republicans,

Please stop wasting the time and money of this nation on petty bullshiat and try to actually be constructive. I know there is a scary blah man in office, but for the greater good of this nation, please do the job you were elected for.

I, for one, am proud of our elected officials. Without their tireless efforts to hold the line on socialisms, our country would be backsliding into a yawning pit of heathenism, hedonism, hermaphroditism and Wheatonism.

They're not beating a dead horse.

The House Republicans are beating a bloody spot of dirt where a dead horse used to be.

I love it.

These morons are spending so much time appealing to their hover-round riding, Cmdr Pillpopper-listening, real Murican inbread base that they don't have time to do anything else but hold meaningless votes for fear that they'll get out-primaried in 2014.

Which begs the questions,  if 12% of Amerincans believe that Obamacare has already been repealed, then how can Fox News serve its mission of perpetuating news of conservatives causes, while simultaneously maintaining its mission to avoid informing its audience of objective reality at all costs?

it's all political strategy.  you wouldn't know nothing about that.

"House Republicans look forward to offering Democratic freshman the opportunity to put their full support behind ObamaCare as its implementation causes rates to increase, coverage to be dropped and the quality of care to suffer," Cooper said.

FTFA: House GOP freshman in particular complained that unlike the more senior members, they haven't had the opportunity to vote to repeal Obamacare yet.

So is this going to become sort of a House GOP tradition?  Every two years, bring up a vote on Obamacare just so Republicans can prove their fealty to the Tea Party?

And how much is this political strategy costing the taxpayer? Repubs need to conduct their political strategies on their own farking dime. Fark them for spending money needlessly. Fiscal conservatism my ass.

But Republicans are being personally fiscally conservative. After all, they aren't spending any of their money on this bullshiat political theater. In fact, they are getting paid to do it.

so you can pass it again with an (R) next to it and tell everyone how great it is to be (R)etarded.

We know how the game works, by now. America needs health care reform and if you're crying about how it's going down.... try being helpful next time.

Oh wait, I thought it was just political posturing? The fiscally conservative thing to do is to reform health care costs, and this is a step in the right direction. Hell, the conservatives came up with this form of healthcare reform.. And congress knows as farking well as you do repealing Obamacare is not gonna happen. So stop wasting taxpayers money, stop being obstructionist, and try to make this farking thing work for the good f the country and stop with your bullshiat political theater.

"We intend to bring a full repeal vote to the floor soon, and will continue to advocate for patient-centered health care reform that lowers costs and improves care," Rory Cooper, a spokesman for House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA), told TPM.

Cool. That's all anyone wants. Let's hear your ideas how we get there. Go.

I did some searching, and I couldn't find anything more current than last July, when estimates said around the $50,000,000 neighborhood. That was with (I think) 33 attempts, and most current numbers I'm seeing say Cruz's most recent attempt was #39. That would put the total cost in the $60,000,000 neighborhood.

My math may be way off, it was never my strong suit. No matter what, it's too damn much.
