WASHINGTON (AP) — There they go again: The House is debating another GOP bill to repeal President Barack Obama’s health care law.

Republicans are making their 37th attempt in a little over two years to eliminate, defund or scale back the Affordable Care Act. The government is months away from the rollout of coverage for uninsured Americans.,

Democrats say it’s a big waste of time, since the Democratic-led Senate and the president will simply ignore the House vote, as they have most of the others.

But Republicans say they want to keep up pressure on a costly program that continues to divide the country.

And they point out that on 7 previous occasions, their efforts to scale back parts of the law have eventually gotten signed. Obama calls those minor fixes.
