So let's see if the Bill to repal Obamacare passes the house it then
1. Has to be brought up in the Senate
2. has to pass in the Senate
3. Obama has to sign it
So of the 3 things that need to happen, the first is very unlikely, the second is even more unlikely and the third will never happen. So yes it's a lost cause just done for show but hey they creeping on 50 tries, so maybe the 51st will be free.
