ABSTRACT
The article discusses Republican legislators' efforts to repeal the healthcare reform policy of U.S. President Barack Obama's administration. It is perceived that the Republican majority in the U.S. House of Representatives and the Republican minority in the U.S. Senate will have various means to eventually bring down the healthcare law. Hurdles in Republican efforts to defund the law include funding programs that are considered entitlements, which are guaranteed by law and may not be touched by annual spending bills.
