King: Obamacare and the GOP Agenda



Text  



Rep. Steve King (R., Iowa) tells National Review Online that the “first plank” of the House GOP’s fall agenda should be to “repeal Obamacare.” King, a member of the Tea Party caucus, says that repealing the health-care law is “very close to a universal position on the part of Republicans.”

“Everybody voted against it,” King says. “That plank needs to be nailed down first. We need to pull it out by the roots: full repeal. If we can agree on that, then we can put in the next plank.”

Republicans are planning to release their policy agenda after the August recess.
