House will debate health care repeal next week

Health care repeal is coming back.

The House of Representatives plans next week to debate Republican-authored legislation to overturn last year's health care law. Votes could begin as soon as Wednesday.

That vote was supposed to take place Jan. 12, but was postponed after the Tucson shootings.

But Thursday, Brad Dayspring, spokesman for Majority Leader Eric Cantor, R-VA., issued this statement:

"As the White House noted, it is important for Congress to get back to work and to that end, we will resume thoughtful consideration of the health care bill next week.

"Americans have legitimate concerns about the cost of the new health care law and its effect on the ability to grow jobs in our country. It is our expectation that the debate will continue to focus on those substantive policy differences surrounding the new law."
