The House of Representatives voted on Tuesday to repeal President Barack Obama's health-care law. The House has voted more than 50 times to repeal or alter the law since it was enacted in 2010. In addition to repeal, the bill passed Tuesday directs House committees to write an alternative to the law. The White House says Obama would veto the bill if it reaches his desk. Texas Republican Ted Cruz has introduced a repeal bill in the Senate, but he would need support from six Democrats to advance it. The House's vote was 239 to 186.
