*As expected, the Republican-led House of Representatives voted today to repeal the 10-month-old healthcare reform law, a symbolic rebuke to President Obama’s signature legislative accomplishment.

The move fulfilled a pledge Republicans made to voters in the 2010 campaign for a swift vote to undo what they called the “job-killing” measure.

The repeal effort is likely to stall there, however, as Democrats who still control the Senate have no intention of taking up the bill.
