House votes to repeal Health Care Reform Bill

The House of Representatives voted 245-189 Wednesday to repeal the Health Care Reform Bill. Rep. Blaine Luetkemeyer, R-MO, joined the rest of the Republican Majority and three democrats in voting to repeal the bill. The bill directly affects college-age students as it allows individuals to remain under their parents' health insurance plan until age 26.

“Missouri is the Show-Me State, and today’s vote in the House to repeal the Democrats’ job-killing health-care law demonstrates that we are serious about listening to the American people, as we have now put their will into action," Luetkemeyer said in a statement.
