It Depends On What the Meaning of “Repeal and Start Over” Is

A trend? Georgia Rep. Phil Gingrey (R):

“When we say start over, we don’t mean throw everything out – throw out the baby with the bath water. We mean, take the best of this bill and combine it with our ideas like buying insurance across state lines and equalizing the tax treatment and creating high-risk pools. “Of course, all of the language regarding electronic medical records I’m in favor of. So I might not fully agree with completely repealing and starting over.”

Newt Gingrich and Georgia Gov. Sonny Perdue are expected to challenge the constitutionality of the law at a joint press conference tomorrow at 10:30 a.m. And it looks like I won’t be alone in backing Regina Thomas in her July 20 primary challenge against Blue Dog John Barrow. Barrow voted no on the health care bill.
