Rep. Camp discusses House vote to repeal Affordable Care Act

Posted: Updated:
WASHINGTON, D.C. (WJRT) -

(07/11/12) - Republicans have pushed yet another bill through the House of Representatives to repeal the Affordable Care Act. Wednesday's vote passed 244-185, with five Democrats joining the Republicans to repeal the health care law. 

The vote came less than two weeks after the Supreme Court declared the law -- and the mandate requiring nearly everyone to purchase health insurance -- constitutional.

Rep. Dave Camp of Michigan's 4th District, and the chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee, spoke to ABC12's Ted Fioraliso after the vote about why he voted in favor of a repeal.

The bill has almost no chance of passing the Democrat-controlled Senate, however, and President Obama says he would veto the bill to repeal the health care law.
