"A wise and frugal government which shall restrain men
from injuring one another, which shall leave them otherwise free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned. This is the sum of good government."

House Votes to Repeal Obamacare -- Promise Kept (245-189)

Three Democrat Congressmen -- Dan Boren (OK), Mike McIntyre (NC), and Dennis Ross (AR) all voted with Republicans to repeal Obamacare. We cannot speak for the other two but Dan Boren said a long time ago that he would vote for repeal -- he didn't vote for the original bill and no way being from Oklahoma would he have voted to keep Obamacare.

The OK Attorney General has now put Oklahoma in with other states challenging the Constitutionality of Obamacare. It is so great to finally have a conservative as our Attorney General after the previous Democrat went in with Gore over Florida and also with the State of CT against the Boy Scouts. Never figured out why this conservative state reelected him when Oklahoma had gone for Pres Bush in big numbers in 2000. Now that is in the past and we have a new Attorney General Scott Pruitt who we believe will be one of the best Attorney Generals we ever have had.

The question of the day is what will the Senate do now and will Democrats line up with Majority Leader Reid like the last time or will those facing tough races vote with Republicans? Should be interesting!
