Rather than listen to the will of the electorate, Republicans are sticking to their pledge to overturn health care reform.

The GOP¹s new House majority assured easy passage of their repeal measure on 245-189 vote Wednesday that split largely along party lines. But the long-term prospects of actually undoing the new law are far less certain.
