It's true that Obama can veto, which makes this exercise futile. BUT, Obamacare could be stopped with the upcoming vote on the debt limit increase. This approach is better because Republicans could do this without any Democrat support in the House or Senate, there is no opportunity for a veto, and it would NOT result in a government shutdown - just reduced spending to equal our revenues. In other words, an instant balanced budget, with not enough money for Obamacare. Sounds like a win-win situation to me.
