WASHINGTON — Republican leaders say a House vote this evening on a repeal of the health care law will send a message to President Barack Obama that the country has turned away from government fixes to the country’s problems.

Rep. Phil Roe says repeal doesn’t mean he and his fellow Republicans don’t support health care reform, but he says the current law is unsustainable. The freshman from Tennessee says that while the law increases the number of people insured, “it does nothing to decrease the costs.”

While the repeal appears headed for House passage, Democrats are expressing confidence the law will stand. With millions already getting benefits such as lower prescription prices for Medicare recipients and extended coverage for young adults on their parents’ insurance plans, Rep. Xavier Becerra says he and his Democratic colleagues are not interested in “destroying the law.”

And with their party still in control of the Senate, Democratic leaders are vowing to block the repeal.
