King: Obamacare and the GOP Agenda

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.
