Health care repeal

    A poll of 800 registered voters in Pennsylvania reveals 47 percent are in favor of repealing the federal health care law. As Congress prepares to vote on a repeal next week, Republicans yesterday named their rebuke for the law “Repealing the Job-Killing Health Care Law Act.”

    Republican Speaker of the House John Boehner has already made it a priority to amend the law. The poll, conducted by Susquehanna Polling & Research in Harrisburg and given by the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, shows those in favor of the repeal are against government’s involvement in health care. Twenty-one percent of voters pushing for a repeal said they believe the law will increase health care costs.
