Phil Connors couldn't avoid doing the same thing over and over again each day in the film Groundhog Day, with hilarious results. House Republicans marked Groundhog Day today by taking their 63rd vote to repeal or undermine the Affordable Care Act, and the 12th vote this Congress to restrict women's access to health care – no laughing matter. Under Speaker Ryan, House Republicans are continuing their obsession with interfering in a woman's right to make her own decisions about her body and her health. They should stop wasting taxpayers' time and money, and instead focus on expanding access to quality, affordable health care for everyone. Enough is enough.

Wasserman Schultz Statement on House Republicans’ Failed Veto Override

U.S. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (FL-23) issued the following statement tonight after the House of Representatives voted and failed to override President Obama’s veto of H.R. 3762:

"Phil Connors couldn’t avoid doing the same thing over and over again each day in the film Groundhog Day, with hilarious results. House Republicans marked Groundhog Day today by taking their 63rd vote to repeal or undermine the Affordable Care Act, and the 12th vote this Congress to restrict women’s access to health care – no laughing matter. Under Speaker Ryan, House Republicans are continuing their obsession with interfering in a woman’s right to make her own decisions about her body and her health.
