The House just passed Michele Bachmann's bipartisan Obamacare repeal bill 229-195

Despite the bill's misleading title, internal cost estimates from 17 of the nation's largest insurance companies indicate that ObamaCare will be anything but "affordable."
On average, premiums will grow 100% when the law is fully implemented, and some will soar more than 400%.
And despite being hailed as a deficit reducer, the GAO reports that Obamacare will increase our federal deficit by $6.2 trillion in the long-term.
One of President Obama's main selling points for ObamaCare was that it would help the most vulnerable populations with pre-existing conditions.
Instead, the program to help them is refusing new applicants and is already out of money before less than 1 percent of those with pre-existing conditions received coverage.
After Congress passed the president's health care law, one of my top priorities has been its full repeal. I plan to continue this fight until this becomes a reality.
Passing my bill to repeal ObamaCare is just the first step towards free market solutions for real health care reform.
Real health care reform is about bringing down the cost of health care through free market competition.
Rather than empowering big government in which doctors and patients have little to no say about the quality of care they receive, real health care reform is about giving families more choices — not fewer.
We must work together for commonsense health care solutions, and that begins today by repealing the ObamaCare train wreck.
