House vote to repeal healthcare reform set for Wednesday

House Republicans officially set their vote on legislation repealing healthcare reform for Wednesday.

Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.) released his schedule for next week on Friday, which has the GOP-controlled House starting debate on its legislation on Tuesday before a Wednesday vote.

On Thursday, the House will debate and vote on legislation to instruct committees to develop alternatives to replace the reform law.

The vote represents somewhat of a return to normalcy in the House after all substantive floor action was postponed in the past week, in the wake of the attack against Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D-Ariz.).

Republicans had faced some calls to change the name of their bill in the wake of the attack, but Cantor’s schedule showed no indication of doing so, referring to H.R. 2 by its official name, “Repealing the Job-Killing Health Care Law Act.”
