Republicans vow to vote on repealing law

Republicans vowed to dismantle the law, with House Speaker John Boehner saying he could bring up a vote as early as next month to begin undoing the historic health care law. The vote, however, would be merely symbolic because Democrats in the Senate would surely block any proposal that would repeal or weaken any provision of the 2010 law.
