Republican leaders in the new House say they'll hold a vote next week to repeal President Barack Obama's health care overhaul.
The announcement of the Jan. 12 vote by the No. 2 House Republican, Virginia Rep. Eric Cantor, sets the stage for a showdown with the Democratic-led Senate.
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid of Nevada said earlier Monday that Democrats in that chamber will block any attempt to repeal the landmark legislation extending coverage to more than 30 million uninsured people.
Cantor spokesman Brad Dayspring said Monday the health care law is a "job killer for businesses small and large," but Reid said Republicans are on a "partisan mission."

    They can block it by not putting it into the budget and have a government shutdown. The democrats are not going to like it when when the government is downsized.
