Another round for the House on 'Obamacare'

One more time, with feeling!

The Republican-led House has voted yet again to repeal President Barack Obama's health care law, knowing full well that won't stop it.

Thursday's party-line vote marked the 37th time in a little over two years that the House has voted to eliminate, defund or partly scale back the Affordable Care Act.

Democrats called it a waste of time - even an obsession.

But in Congress spin often trumps legislation.

Republicans see a political advantage to keeping the pressure up as the administration tries to get all the moving parts of the law working in the next few months.

They're hoping that problems with its implementation will help them recapture the Senate in next year's midterm elections.
