Arizona lawmakers stick to party lines in health care vote

July 12, 2012

Arizona's congressional delegation did as expected yesterday as lawmakers tried to repeal President Obama's signature healthcare act.

Wednesday was the 33rd time lawmakers have tried to get rid of the law. All five Arizona Republicans voted in favor of repeal. All three Democrats voted against.

Republican Ben Quayle said the mere act of voting to overturn the law was a victory for the American people. Democrat Ron Barber said Congress should rise above bickering and move on.
